Christian Slater Marries Girlfriend Brittany Lopez In Spontaneous Florida Wedding

Christian Slater is off the market yet again.

In an impromptu ceremony, the 44-year-old actor married his girlfriend of three years, Brittany Lopez, on Monday at a courthouse in Coral Cables, Fla., his spokeswoman confirmed.

The nuptials were first reported by People magazine, who said the couple went to the courthouse to get their marriage license and spontaneously decided to get married. Afterwards, the newlyweds had a court clerk snap a photo of them.

This is the second marriage for the "Heathers" and "True Romance" star who has two children with ex-wife Ryan Haddon. Slater and Haddon married in 2000 and separated in 2005.

Slater officially announced his engagement to Lopez back in February during an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

According to E! Online, the actor said he met his wife when he was staying on Florida’s Little Palm Island a couple of years ago.

“This girl came walking along with another lady, a slightly older lady, and I was sitting in my usual spot eating my oatmeal that morning,” Slater told Fallon. “So I’m a filthy old man eating my oatmeal and she comes along. This spot, I guess, was famous for people proposing to each other actually. It was very, very nice. So she’s there with this old lady and, next thing I know she gets down on one knee and proposed this lady … I’d seen a lot of crazy stuff down in the Florida Keys! I of course was very intrigued and I want over and sat down in my other usual spot.”

He continued the tale.

“I thought I’d just witnessed a nice lesbian engagement so I was coming over to say congratulations,” Slater continued. “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 park. … The next thing I knew we were hanging out in the Everglades.”

Slater will star in the upcoming ABC series, "Mind Games," as well as director Lars von Trier's film "Nymphomaniac." He previously appeared in such movies as "Interview with the Vampire," ''Broken Arrow" and "Hard Rain."
