Adam Sandler is easily one of the most divisive comedians and actors of our generation.

And, whether you love him or hate him, there's no denying the 50-year-old actor has remained an extremely bankable star - his movies have grossed over US $2 billion at the box office.

"They can't possibly watch any of your movies, cause your movies are very R-Rated," Ellen said.

"Some are okay, some are PG-13 ish so my kids have seen them," Sandler admitted.

"I put them on because they beg to see them, they're like 'Please, it's not fair, let me watch your movies, those people always yell things at you on the street and I don't know what the heck they're talking about,'" he laughed.

Adding, "So I show them the movies, they demand it. Then, they get like 20 minutes in every time and I see them tuning out, and then I hear them, they're nervous to say it, but they're like 'Can we watch something else?'"

The audience let out a collective "aww" for the actor but he assured them, "No, it's okay, I say no ... I don't get offended."
