Longtime friends and Murder Mystery 2 costars Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are revealing their nicknames for each other!

During a recent paired interview with Entertainment Tonight ahead of the release of the upcoming Netflix sequel, the actors brought out the nicknames "Anaburger" and "Sandalman" as Aniston, 54, asked Sandler, 56, about the "best part of being my onscreen partner" when they costar together.

"Well, you certainly have a way about making life fun on the set. You're caring," Sandler told the actress. "You care about how I'm doing. If I'm enjoying my life. If I'm healthy. You do things to make my beard smell better."

"When we do kissing scenes, you wait to go into the other room to scream 'what the hell was that?' " Sandler jokingly added. "And that's it, that's all I got for you, Anaburger."

"Alright, Sandalman," Aniston responded as they continued with the segment, per ET.

While Aniston promoted Murder Mystery 2 during her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last Tuesday, she revealed that she does "very much love to take care of" the actor and comedian on set.

"He's so concerned with taking care of everybody else, which he really does, and he doesn't take care of himself. I'm sorry to call you out on national television Adam, but you have to know this," she said, telling Fallon she tends to make Sandler smoothies when they work on film sets together.

"And [Sandler's wife Jackie Sandler]'s like, 'Thanks, it lasted a minute,' " Aniston joked.
