Adam Sandler explains the 'pathetic' reason he has a black eye on 'The Tonight Show'

Adam Sandler swung by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Monday, to promote his new film, Hustle. But before that, he had to explain how an iPhone on his lap and a tightly tucked-in bed sheet left him bloody.

“I had an accident, everybody,” Sandler said. “Everything's all right, but I wish it was a good story it's pathetic.”

He explained how he got into bed and the sheets were tucked-in too tightly. When he tried to kick them loose with his feet, he forgot his iPhone was on his lap. The phone went flying in the air and ended up splitting the skin just beneath his eye. Sandler is no stranger to taking a beating in his movies, so he just acted like everything was fine and went to sleep.

“I was bleeding terribly,” Sandler explained. “I mean, I thought it was pitch black in the room, and I feel wetness and I tricked myself. I go, ‘This is probably just thick tears’... I didn't want to get up, you know, because I was tired. And I was like, ‘Ah, we'll fix that later.’

When he woke up in the morning, there was so much blood everywhere that he knew he needed assistance.

“I said, ‘I've got to get this fixed,’” Sandler recalled. “So I went to the Apple store.”
