Jennifer Aniston vs. Drew Barrymore: Who is Adam Sandler’s best pair?

Fans started a Drew Barrymore versus Jennifer Aniston trend on Twitter. As these two are often paired to Adam Sandler, one fan suggested the actor and Brad Pitt's ex-wife made a better movie couple.

Of course, Drew Barrymore fans didn't agree. For them, the best movie couple is Drew and Adam Sandler and not Jennifer Aniston.

The perfect pair for Adam Sandler

Everything started when a fan began asking the Twitter world to name a better duo in the movie more than Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, Us Weekly noted.

"Wait is Drew Barrymore trending because someone said that Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are a better duo????" another fan responded. "THE AUDACITY. This pair is OG and cute AF."

Someone also said that the 53-year-old actor didn't do 50 Firs Dates just to be disrespected. A different fan added that Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore were like "peas and carrots."

"Adam Sandler is best with Drew Barrymore; everyone knows this," a different follower continued. "I'm so glad that Drew Barrymore isn't trending for the myriad of reasons I could have imagined she was trending."
