So how do celebs pick up women? Well, Adam Sandler doesn’t do it very well. His “Funny People” costar Leslie Mann revealed that, back in the day, Sandler tried to hit her up at a night club by writing something really lame (she thinks it was “nice back”) on a cocktail napkin in ketchup. He had his friend bring it to her table—like the go-between gal you used in second grade to tell that boy you liked him. Needless to say, they didn’t speak that night. [People]
After the jump, see how Adam’s game compares to other famous peeps.
- Actor John Leguizamo actually admitted that when he was a teen he’d say, ”You might as well come home with me now, because the things I’m going to do to you at home by myself you might want to have a say in.” [EW] — After that, John usually got taken to speech therapy.
- John Mayer tries to get girls by acting pathetic, kind of like his music. He once got singer Jessie James to go back to his apartment with a bunch of other girls by sending for her from across the room. After she left, Mayer texted the singer, saying “Let me tuck you in.” [EntertainmentWise.com] — Ew, creepy Daddy pickup lines. No thanks.
- Australian actor Hugh Jackman picks up girls by playing up the whole “I’m gay” thing. He once said, “I remember when I was about 19, me and my mate used to go to these dance parties that were 80 percent gay guys, 18 percent girls who were sick of heterosexual guys hitting on them, and then vultures like me and my mate. We would go there until two in the morning, when the girls were really drunk.” [SF Gate] — Hm, that’s funny because the reason I go to gay clubs is so I DON’T get hit on my icky guys like you, Hugh.
- Comedian/actor Russell Brand also uses the gay thing to his advantage. In 2008 he told David Letterman on “The Late Show” that women assume he’s homosexual because of his clothes. So, he lures chicks in because “…women feel safe around me. They trust me. Then bang! Pregnant! Bang! Pregnant! Bang! Pregnant!” [Fametastic UK] — Bang! I want to punch you.
