“The last Adam movie I did was called Hubie Halloween. And I had to do this scene where I’m eating this sandwich with this girl and French Kissing her at the same time. So Adam made me do it about 50 times. Cut. Cut. Cut. I looked back at Adam, like what the hell!… The girl that he had me kissing, she was kind of getting into it. I was like: ‘Hey lady, this is just for the movie. Adam cut!”
