Grown Ups 2

In Grown Ups 2, Salma Hayek stars opposite Adam Sandler as his rather passionate wife Roxanne. Hayek is known for her impressive record of contrasting on-screen partnerships with famous actors. Some of them were extremely passionate love affairs, whilst others were more about playful friendships than affection. Here we take a look at some of the most memorable…

Adam Sandler in Grown Up’s (2010)
We have previously seen Salma Hayek and Adam Sandler appear in the original Grown Ups. Hayek plays Roxanne, the delectable, if a little highly strung wife of Lenny (Adam Sandler), and Kevin James is Eric, Lenny’s high school buddy. The film tells the story of a group of high-school friends who reunite for a weekend away after their high-school basketball coach passes away.
