Christian Slater Engaged to His Girlfriend, Who Isn’t the Lesbian He Thought She Was
On ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon‘ last night (Feb. 27), actor Christian Slater revealed he put a ring on his girlfriend, Brittany Lopez.
But the couple had a rather unusual meet-cute story: The ‘Heathers’ star revealed that the first time he made Lopez’s acquaintance in 2009, she was a lesbian. Which isn’t really how that works at all, but stay with us here.
Slater was just minding his own business and eating oatmeal in Miami when a girl and an older woman caught his attention.
“This spot was famous for people proposing to each other… and next thing I know she gets down on one knee and proposes to this older lady,” he recalled. “I thought I had just witnessed a nice lesbian engagement, so I was coming over to say congratulations, but it turns out it was her aunt and she was just trying to help her aunt capture the beauty and the romance of the moment.”
“She was making a joke, and I witnessed it, and it intrigued me, and the next thing I know we were hanging out in the Everglades.”
Hear that, ladies? Propose to your own relatives in public places and you too could wind up a Hollywood wife.
This will be Slater’s second marriage, and hopefully it’ll go a lot better than his first one, which was marred by his past substance abuse issues and at least one domestic battery arrest.
