Adam Sandler has said that he found it difficult to shoot the more serious scenes in his upcoming comedy ‘Funny People’.

The ‘Happy Gilmour’ actor plays a stand-up comedian who discovers that he has an untreatable blood disorder.

Sandler explained, “I’d rather be funny. When I have to do stuff like that I’m glad when the day’s over. It was a lot of work, and when I finished it, I hugged the director and I was very relieved to take a break. I don’t know how these other actors go movie to movie and lose their mind in their roles and have a real life. I was happy to jump into my real life – be with my kids and wife.”

‘Funny People’ is due for release in New Zealand on 17 September.
