When he first met her, Christian Slater says he thought his now fiancé was a lesbian!
During an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Slater confirmed that he is engaged to Brittany Lopez, a woman he met while staying in Florida.
According to the 43-year-old actor, he was staying on Florida’s Little Palm Island one morning in 2009 when he saw a younger woman (Lopez) come in with an older woman. He sees Lopez get down on one knee and “propose” to the other woman. Thinking he’d “just witnessed a nice lesbian engagement” Slater says he went over to congratulate the couple. However, he learns that what he saw was not a real proposal, but was only something Lopez was doing as a joke to her aunt. The location is said to be famous for being the site of many proposals.
“The next thing I knew we were hanging out in the everglades,” Slater told Fallon.
This will be the actor’s second marriage. His divorce from Ryan Haddon was finalized in 2007, though they had split in 2004. Slater and Haddon were married in 2000 and had two children together, Eliana, 11, and Jaden, 13.
