Adam Sandler Says He Was Attacked by a Cheetah

Gustavo Caballero/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Adam Sandler told Dave Letterman Wednesday night that he almost died from a cheetah attack on a private African safari.

Sandler said he was filming a new movie with Drew Barrymore in South Africa when he took a day off to take a private safari. He was helping to feed a cheetah when the cat jumped on his back. Sandler said he remained calm but inside figured that it was his time to die.

"I played it off real good, [but] I was very nervous," he said. "I swear to God, when he jumped on me, all I was going to do was let him eat me. There was not one part of me that was going to fight back. I was like, 'All right, this is how I'm dying.'"

He said nothing about injuries.
