Adam Sandler and Judd Apatow

Their shared sense of humor must have helped these two survive sharing a small $900-a-month apartment in Los Angeles in their earlier years. Apatow is a film producer, director, comedian, actor, and writer best known for his work in cult TV series “Freaks and Geeks,” “Undeclared” and “Girls.” Sandler slept on a mattress without sheets in their shared apartment and the two would argue over using the bathroom.
