It could be said that Adam Sandler's cinematic career has had its highs, and more than a few lows, but the actor and filmmaker has said that he doesn't consider any of his movies to be a flop.

While the 53-year-old has received some very mixed reviews for his pictures, he "loves" every single one.

When asked about the "ups and downs" of his career, he told CBS' 60 Minutes: "Man, I don't know what the downs have been.

“I mean, maybe in some people, when they write about me, they talk about my downs. But I don't have any downs. I love every movie I've made. I've never in my entire career phoned one thing in.

Other low-rated films of his include Jack and Jill, which he produced, wrote and starred in, at three percent, and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star that he wrote and produced which also received nought percent.

While bad reviews may have affected Sandler in the past, nowadays he claims he can easily brush them off.

"That stuff doesn't hurt me anymore. I think it hurt me 20 years ago," he shared. "It got me 20 years ago. I was-- kinda shell-shocked like, 'What happened? They say I suck?' I thought I was good at this."

In light of the rave reviews for his role as a gambling affect in Uncut Gems, there is something of an Oscar buzz surrounding Sandler.

He has joked that if he doesn't win the coveted gong, he will release a terrible movie "on purpose" as a means of retaliation.

If the Happy Gilmore actor were to be up for an Academy Award, it would make it his first nomination.

He has previously been nominated for a Golden Globe for his turn in Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch Drunk Love.
