    Default True Romance! Christian Slater marries long-term girlfriend Brittany Lopez

    In the classic 1993 movie, True Romance, Christian Slater's Clarence marries Patricia Arquette's Alabama in an impromptu civil service with just the two of them present.

    And now life has imitated art as Slater has done exactly the same thing with his girlfriend Brittany Lopez, 26; although they've known each other for three years rather than the three hours director Tony Scott's protagonists spent together before saying 'I do.'

    The 44-year-old actor - who divorced his first wife Ryan Haddon in 2007 - tied the knot at an at the courthouse in Coral Gables in Florida on Monday on the spur of the moment.


    Just married! Christian Slater and Brittany Lopez have made it official


    A spokesperson for the 'Mind Games' star told People.com that the couple spontaneously decided to get married after they initially went to the Coral Gables District Court near Miami to get their marriage licence.
    The pair announced they were engaged in February, two months after they celebrated at a huge party for family and friends last December.

    Christian previously revealed they were set to tie the knot in a small ceremony in their back garden in July and had hired a wedding planner.
    He said: 'It will be good, intimate and small and family members. It will be nice.'

    'He's so cool, he's so cool, he's so cool': Christian has got married for the second time

    It is not yet known why The Legend of Billie Jean' star, who has a son, Jaden Christopher, 14, and daughter, Eliana Sophia, 12, from his first marriage, and Brittany decided to ditch their wedding plans but Christian hinted that he wanted the event to be low key.
    He said: 'We had a big engagement party on the 31st of December and it was nice, it was like New Year's and we had all the family come, 200 people, so it kind of already feels like we did the wedding, so we are just going to do a nice backyard situation.'
    The Breaking In TV star has a history of dating beautiful brunettes and was in a relationship with Jimmy Choo boss Tamara Mellon for two years before the split in 2009.
    In 2000, Slater married Haddon, the daughter of '70s model Dayle Haddon before welcoming the two children.

    Teen hero: Christian starred in the ultimate rebellion movie. Pump Up the Volume, with Samantha Mathis in 1990


    In 2003, Haddon was arrested for assaulting Slater at a Hard Rock Cafe while on a trip to Las Vegas, she was charged with domestic battery after allegedly throwing a bottle at Slater's neck that required him to have 20 stitches.
    They announced a separation over Christmas 2004 and divorced in 2007.
    Slater's early promise in films like 1988's Heathers and Pump Up the Volume in 1990 was somewhat diluted by his wild child antics.

    In 1989 he was arrested for drink driving and assault then sentenced to 10 days in jail, and in '94 he was arrested when he tried to board a plane with a gun in his luggage; in 1997 he was remanded in custody again for assaulting then girlfriend, Michelle Jonas.


    Cult: Christian's turn in Tony Scott's True Romance opposite Patricia Arquette is still a fan favourite


    A stint in rehab followed but in 2005 he was arrested in New York after he allegedly sexually harassed a woman on the street, he denied the charge.

    The former enfant terrible now lives a quiet life in Miami with his girlfriend and works tirelessly to promote charities including 21st Century Leaders, Global Green and Whatever It Takes.

    In 1994, Slater donated his paycheck from the film Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles to River Phoenix’s favourite charities; Phoenix had been slated for the part before his death from a drug overdose a year earlier.

    I used to have such a massive crush on him back in the early 90s. He really is looking good these days.

    They were supposed to have a larger wedding. I know some people that were invited to a ceremony that was supposed to take place over the summer. Friends/colleagues of her father.

    He is so funny to me because he seems like he was doing some kind of conscious or unconscious poor-man's Jack Nicholson impression for a number of his movies. Aging well for a madman, though.
