On Wednesday’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Bullet to the Head star Christian Slater confirmed that he is engaged to Brittany Lopez.
Although he hasn’t released any details about the planned nuptials, Slater admitted that the engagement was almost a no-go after a disappointing Christmas present gaffe. Apparently Lopez wanted a pet raccoon for Christmas, but as Slater explained, “Raccoons are rabid and filthy, hideous creatures. So, I didn’t think that was a good idea, but I thought I would give her the next best thing, so I went on eBay, and I figured, look, I’ll get her a taxidermy raccoon.”
“I put it in a box, and I was so excited, I was like ‘Look, I did it! The next best thing. It was like the big present, I brought it to the house… and she opened the thing and all she saw were like two dead eyes staring out at her, and she literally cried for 45 minutes… it was awful.”
He concluded, “It was a rough moment, and then we had the engagement party, like a week later. It almost didn’t happen. It was very, very close.”
This will be Slater’s second go-round on the marital carousel – in 2000, he married Ryan Haddon. After having two children (Jaden Christopher and Eliana Sophia), the couple divorced after seven turbulent years.
