“This is something I need to discuss, right?” he said.

As it turns out, the story behind his injury was quite funny.
“I was in bed in the middle of the night, you know how they tuck your sheets under it? Someone put too much in the sheets,” he recalls. “I had my phone in the middle of the bed. I kicked my feet up to release it – the phone flew off, hit me on the head.”
However, the injury didn’t stop Sandler from turning a blind eye.
“I refused to acknowledge it,” he added. “I felt blood and said, ‘Ah, something’s up, but I need to sleep.’ Kept sleeping, woke up.”
Host George Stephanopoulos was amused by what he called “the most comprehensive black-eye story.”
“There’s nothing cool about this thing,” Sandler said, laughing. “It looks so cool. When I’m on the streets of New York, I see people say, ‘Oh, okay. He likes to fight, that guy.’ I’m like, ‘Ah, it was a serious accident.’”

This appearance continues the 55-year-old’s continued appearance on live television with black eyes.
In a 2014 appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” with Drew Barrymore, who was then pregnant, he joked that her unborn child gave him a black eye. In 2015, he was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s special NBA Finals “Game Night” show and revealed that he got a shine from a pick-up game of basketball.
“Some guy didn’t ring a pick and hit my head, my head popped and then I couldn’t lie about it,” he said via page six† “I came home with a black eye and had to tell the truth – then I paid a guy to change the tire.”
