Sorry, ladies. Our beloved Christian Slater is off the market. Check out the 5 Fast Facts on Slater’s nuptials with long-time girlfriend Brittany Lopez as well as some background on Slater’s new wife …
1. The Two Tied the Knot at a Courthouse
There were no wedding bells ringing, no flowers, no white gown … just a marriage license, a judge, and a Miami courthouse. Apparently, Christian Slater and his girlfriend Brittany Lopez got married at a courthouse in Coral Gables, Florida and that was that, according to E! News.
2. The Couple Had Not Planned to Get Married
People reports that Slater and Lopez had gone down to the Coral Gables District Court on Monday just to get their marriage license when they spontaneously made the decision to get married right then and there. After they said their vows, they had a court clerk take their picture.

During an interview on Jimmy Fallon’s show this past February, Christian Slater talked about the first time he met his fiancée back in 2009 at Little Palm Island resort in Miami, Florida.
This girl came walking along with another lady, a slightly older lady. I was sitting in my usual spot, eating my oatmeal that morning – and this spot was famous for people proposing to each other – and the next thing I know she gets down on one knee and proposes to this older lady. 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.
4. Slater Made Lopez Cry With a Dead Raccoon
Apparently, Lopez had talked about how she really wanted to have a raccoon as a pet. So, Slater thought it’d be a great idea to give her a real stuffed raccoon. Slater told E! Online:
I brought it to the house, the whole family…this was like the last gift! She opened the thing and all she saw was two dead eyes staring up at her and she literally cried for 45 minutes into her mother’s bosom. It was awful.
Whoops! Well, it sounds like Lopez got over it …
5. Their Engagement Was Announced Back in February
On the same episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon that he talked about meeting Lopez, Christian Slater confirmed to the host that he had popped the question to his girlfriend … before he talked about the fact that he originally thought she was a lesbian.
The couple celebrated their engagement over the summer and were planning to have an intimate wedding ceremony later in the year.
