Adam Sandler slammed for repeatedly touching Claire Foy's leg

Share

Claire Foy has defended Adam Sandler after he was criticised for placing his hand on her knee during an interview on The Graham Norton Show.

Another wrote: "Claire Foy replacing Adam Sandler's hand onto his own knee rather than hers, was the flawless "haha dont touch me again" move #GrahamNorton".

Viewers claimed Foy looked "uncomfortable" following the incident and blasted Sandler.

Many took to the social media site to criticise the Hollywood actor following the "awkward" interview in which he repeatedly rested his hand on The Crown star's knee.

Unaware: Unfortunately her efforts to pat away his hand went unnoticed, and he soon placed it back on her knee- much to her apparent awkwardness.

Sandler even touched Thompson's leg at some point during the episode.

Another said: "Adam Sandler has no social awareness of how awkward he seemed to be making Emma Thompson and Claire Foy #stoptouching #GrahamNorton".

Fultz, 19, had a cortisone shot in his shoulder on October 5, according to his agent, and hasn't played since last Monday. The Sixers (2-4) are coming off a 112-110 win in Dallas and play the Houston Rockets on Monday night.

Fans vented on Twitter, with one saying: "Claire Foy replacing Adam Sandler's hand onto his own knee rather than hers, was the flawless "haha dont touch me again" move #GrahamNorton".

In the clip, Adam is discussing being nominated for a Golden Globe award when he makes the odd move toward Claire's knee, which his reps told the Mail Online was simply a "friendly gesture".

They wrote: "Peeps going on about Adam Sandler, I think he's just tactile, I've seen him do the same when he was sat next to Dustin Hoffman!". Police in London, Los Angeles and NY are investigating Weinstein, 65.

Emma Thompson spoke out against the sleazy producer, saying he was at "the top of the ladder of a system of harassment and belitting and bullying".

The British star has been very vocal during the Weinstein scandal.

However, on Sunday a spokeswoman for Foy said she had not been offended by Sandler touching her leg.

Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
