Adam Sandler requested his co-star Julia Fox’s character in Uncut Gems have a different name because her previous moniker was the same as his daughter Sadie’s.

The 53-year-old actor plays jeweller and gambling addict Howard Ratner in the movie, with Julia starring as his mistress, also called Julia.

However, at the premiere of the film in Hollywood on Wednesday night, actress Julia admitted her character was originally meant to be called Sadie — only that’s Adam’s 13-year-old’s name.

“My character’s name was originally supposed to be Sadie,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “But that’s his daughter’s name, so he actually had it switched for that to make it easier on the girls.”

Adam, who also shares 11-year-old daughter Sunny with wife Jackie, added to the outlet: “That’s my daughter’s name! And I said, ‘You can’t have my daughter’s name in this movie.’”
