Christian Slater Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Christian Michael Leonard Slater was born in New York City, USA, on 18 August 1969,  It all started from Broadway in the early ’80s, where he performed in plays such as “The Music Man”, “Copperfield”, “Merlin”, “Macbeth”, “Side Man”, and “The Glass Menagerie”, but real stardom was in films, as described below.

So just how rich is Christian Slater? Sources estimate that Christian has a net worth of $20 million, which he has earned from acting, producing and directing, during a career in the entertainment industry spanning more than 35 years.

Christian Slater Net Worth $20 Million

Christian’s family was involved in acting: mother Mary Jo Slater was a talent agent and producer and his dad Michael Hawkins was an actor, so Christian had quite a head start to make a carrier of his own. However, his biggest boost into Hollywood was in 1985 when Slater got the male lead role in the film “The Legend of Billy Jean”. Although it wasn’t as successful as the producers expected, for Slater it was the beginning of the road to the a-lists.

Then parts in films flowed one after another, “The Name of the Rose” in 1986 with Sean Connery, “Tucker: The Man and His Dream” in 1988 produced by Francis Ford Coppola, “Gleaming the Cube” in 1989, and the same year Christian  starred in “Heathers” along side Winona Ryder (who was his love in real life as well), “Young Guns II” with Emilio Estevez and many more.

If you’re not a fan of old films and younger than 30, you would better remember Slater from big screen successes “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” in which Christian performed with Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman and Alan Rickman, “Broken Arrow” with John Travolta, and “Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles” in 1994, when three of the supposedly sexiest men on earth met on screen – Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Christian. His part in this film was exceptional not only for that reason; originally the part went to Slater’s friend River Phoenix, but because of his untimely death when he was just 23, Christian took his part, then donated his salary to all River Phoenix’s favorite charities.

Slater earned most of his net worth until the year 2000 from films, but from that year Christian started to appear more often in TV productions and tried to combine it with his big screen acting, because the interest in him from film makers had fallen. The most recent ones are “Breaking In” shown in 2011 and 2012, “Archer” in which he voiced the character named Slater, and the TV series “Mind Games”, both in 2014. Slater had often performed voice-overs in films, for example John Watson in “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Galaxy”.

Aside from acting, unselfish things that Christian has done through his life include supporting charities like Nelson Mandela‘s charity for AIDS awareness, promoting South Africa humanitarian work and many more.

Slates personal life has had quite some color. He married in the year 2000 to his sons mother Ryan Haddon and had one more child. The marriage lasted five years and in that time Ryan had been charged with domestic violence, for throwing a bottle at her husband and slicing his neck, to take care of which needed 20 stitches. This is not the only time Christian had to deal with the police, but usually he was the one in trouble, in 1989 he was driving drunk, in 1997 he assaulted his girlfriend Michelle Jonas and in 2005 he was arrested for assaulting a woman on the street. Lets hope that Christian Slater’s net worth of $40 million will help him to battle his alcoholism and stay out of trouble with his new wife Brittany Lopez(2013).

5His characters frequently suffer gruesome hand injuries, as in Heathers (1988) (finger shot off), Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) (arrow through palm), and Untamed Heart (1993) (both hands are left bleeding after carrying a spruce tree).

12(December 3, 2013) Married 26-year old Brittany Lopez, whom he had dated for three years, in Coral Gables, Florida.
13Ex-son-in-law of Dayle Haddon.
14Son of Mary Jo Slater and Michael Hawkins.
15During his interview and director's commentary on the DVD for The Name of the Rose (1986), director Jean-Jacques Annaud reported that after 15-year-old Christian Slater had been cast as "Adso of Melk", he was asked to read with three actresses auditioning for the role of "The Girl". He read first with Valentina Vargas and was scheduled to read with the other two actresses the next day, but that evening, he sent his mother (casting agent Mary Jo Slater) to tell Annaud that young Christian was so smitten with the 22-year-old Vargas that he didn't want the other two women to be considered. Annaud, amused, complied with Slater's wish.
16His favorite song is "A Little Less Converstion" by Elvis Presley.
17His favorite television series are Boston Legal (2004) and Entourage (2004).
18No relation to actress Helen Slater, who, ironically, played his sister in the movie The Legend of Billie Jean (1985).
19Good friends with actress Sandra Bernhard.
20He is of German, Irish, English, Welsh, and small amounts of Dutch and Scottish, ancestry.
21His favorite movies are The Witches of Eastwick (1987) and The Shining (1980), both starring his idol Jack Nicholson.
22Sold his house in Brentwood, California, to move back to his native New York. [November 2005]
23Has co-starred with each of the two leads of Face/Off (1997), John Travolta and Nicolas Cage, in Broken Arrow (1996) and Windtalkers (2002), respectively. All three films were directed by John Woo.
24Was listed as a potential nominee on the 2006 Razzie Award nominating ballot. He was a suggestion in the Worst Actor category for his performances in Alone in the Dark (2005) and Mindhunters (2004). However, he failed to receive a nomination, had he gotten the nomination, it would have been his first in 14 years. He was previously nominated for Worst Supporting Actor at the 1992 Razzie Awards for his roles in Mobsters (1991) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)).
25The long-standing rumor about Christian's eyebrows (that he shaved them off to look like Spock and they never grew back properly) is actually false. Christian was joking with a reporter in one of his first interviews, and it was somehow printed as fact. He actually stated that he regretted mentioning it, as he still gets asked about the "Halloween costume gone bad" nearly two decades later.
26As a teenager, he appeared in the musical "Merlin", one of the most expensive and most notorious flops in Broadway history. The show had been conceived as a vehicle for Doug Henning's magic, with Henning playing the eponymous wizard. Slater played "Young Merlin" and "Arthur"; other stars included Chita Rivera and Nathan Lane (in what was only his second Broadway role).
27Donated all of his paycheck from Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994) to River Phoenix's favorite charities after the young actor's untimely death at age 23.
28The trousers worn by him in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) are the same ones worn by William Shatner in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). He noticed the name label still inside them. In subsequent interviews, he quipped that he was "proud" to get into Shatner's pants.
29Made his theater debut in the musical "The Music Man" at age 9.

#Quote
1When I did Young Guns II (1990) I hung out with Emilio (Emilio Estevez) and Kiefer (Kiefer Sutherland), and I once took a trip with Rob Lowe - we jumped trains.
2I try to stay away from the craft services table on set! That's probably why I am able to still get work in this business: I stay away from junk food.
3Actors sometimes immerse themselves into it so deeply that the line between who they are and their character can become blurred. For me, I think it's just about getting clearer on my whole life and who I am in order to make it possible for me to play whatever character is presented to me at a particular time.
4Some of the characters that I played as a kid were rebellious teenagers, and people would see those performances and project a particular image onto me. And 90 percent of the time, I would do everything I could to live up to that sort of image and be that individual.
5The Internet opens up so many doors. It's a phenomenal tool for education but also a way for people to be scary and dangerous. We're living in a world where we can be hacked and exposed.
6Pump Up the Volume (1990) was a film and character that I really responded to. That was a movie about a guy trying to take down the establishment using a ham radio. I feel Mr. Robot (2015) has a similar value. This show is about taking down a global empire. I was an anarchist then. I'm getting to be an anarchist again.
7Having kids certainly gets me to ask the question, 'Who is the adult here, and who is the kid?'
8I am a gypsy, in a way. It's a condition of my profession.
9I always looked at it as though I was as real as Elliot imagined me to be, and that was pretty real. I am there as his partner, as his protector, and as his enemy. I'm there sometimes for the right reasons and sometimes for the wrong reasons. It's a continual struggle between the two of us. It turns into a real psychological journey for Elliot.
10It's great, getting the scripts and working with somebody like Sam Esmail, who is such a great leader. He's just so prepared and there's so much attention to detail. And then, you add Rami Malek to the mix, and Carly Chaikin and Portia Doubleday. And in Season 2, we have Joey Badass and Craig Robinson, who are amazing. To get to play a character like this, there's so much freedom and fun with it that it's very exciting.
11The Internet definitely could be a weapon of mass destruction - it's not going to come in a bomb, it's going to come as a cyber attack. It's pretty amazing to see what a small group of people can do if they really know how to control the universe.
12Updating passwords and changing them all the time is something I'm involved in.
13I do have a Twitter account, and there's a woman at my agency who got that all set up for me. I don't know how many followers I have. It's not one of those things I check on a regular basis.
14Strike and struggle precede success, even in the dictionary.
15An actor equals, sometimes, an entitled baby. People take care of things for me, and they pay greater attention to things than I was ever capable of doing. But in the last few years, I have learned a great deal more about taking care of things. I pay my own bills now.
16Theater was definitely part of my roots. My father would take me to plays, and then my mother was always on the lookout for other talent and taking me to see plays. I saw Frank Langella in 'Dracula'... Great, great performances. I was a theater rat, hanging out backstage.
17Heathers (1988) was probably the first time when I started to notice that people were opening doors for me and giving me tables at restaurants, regardless of what I was wearing. A whole world opened up to me that was shocking and weird and different, and I enjoyed it, and, you know, I took great advantage of it at times.
18It's very, very difficult because we're living in a world where they invent things in order to hide things from parents. There are these secret creator app guys who make things to intentionally do that, to keep your parents in the dark, and you've really got to work extra-hard to stay on top of it.
19My mother became a casting director, and she cast me in a soap opera called 'One Life to Live.' I was, like, 8 years old, playing a kid who had hurt himself on a skateboard. I had, like, three lines. I did the lines, and everybody in the studio applauded - I was immediately hooked after that. I was like, 'This is the life for me.'
20I have that glass-half-empty syndrome, and it takes a great deal of effort to climb out of the hole of darkness that I choose to live in mentally.
21When I'm in the kitchen, I don't want anybody else in the kitchen. I have a system - and the system, it's another form of insanity that has grabbed me.
22I had tutors, but education was just not a priority.
23Eighty-five per cent of the time, people want to talk about True Romance (1993). That's the film I've made that really seems to have stuck with people.
24My dad was a theater actor, so I would follow him backstage. And my mom was a casting director. The moment I heard the applause and realized it would get me out of school, I was hooked.
25I enjoy the process of TV; I like the pace of it; I like the continual work.
26It's almost like these games are the modern day comic books, especially when you play Alone in the Dark. There's a real story that goes along with it and a movie seemed like the right kind of transition to make.
27There was a time when I felt I should do everything that was offered to me, you know, ride the wave.
28The guys from Atari that are making the next Alone in the Dark game came and we had a great meeting. I'd love to do that. I'm a fan of video games. I like them. And to get to be part of one of them would be a fun and exciting thing.
29The way I see it, if you're going to make an action movie, you've got to make one with John Woo.
30There's something about doing theatre in London - it sinks a little bit deeper into your soul as an actor. It's something about the tradition of theatre, about performing on the West End stage.
31I want to do films I can relate to emotionally.
32I'm blown away by the graphical detail of today's games. I can't imagine that it's going to get any better, but it's just going to continually progress and soon we'll be living in that world.
33I was always such an incredible fan of John Woo, I just wanted to do this film with him.
34I'm trying not to put myself into anything I'm not 100 percent confident about.
35I had such a good time working with John Woo and John Travolta, and it was so professional. I want to work with people who are real professionals.
36I took a lot of time off after Mobsters and although I did something I had never done before, which was to direct a play, The Laughter Epidemic, it felt like a vacation.
37I think games are starting to branch out. It's not just guys sitting at their computer stations. Games are so fun, that everybody gets into them a little bit.
38After I did Untamed Heart (1993) I wanted to do a film that was outrageous. I really wanted to do, you know, a performance. I don't want to allow my image to rule the choices that I make.
39I have brought a PS2 on set with me before. But games can be really addicting, and that's dangerous. So I tend to keep it fairly limited on a certain level.
40My mom put me in a Pampers commercial on TV.
41I did regret not graduating high school, but I made a point of going back and getting my GED later. It was important for my kids.
42In truth, making films doesn't feel like hard work because I always have such a good time doing it.
43Well, obviously, as soon as I'd finished the script I read a lot of books on Winston Churchill, and started to gain weight and really prepare emotionally, mentally and physically for the role.
44The movies I've made at a certain time of my life were exactly right for the stage of my life, the frame of mind I was in at the time. Each character I've had to play has been me in that time in my life.
45I don't think of myself as offbeat and weird. As a kid, I saw myself as the type of guy who would run into a burning building to save the baby.
46Tony Scott was one of the best directors I've ever worked with, and I was devastated when I heard about his death. He was a great guy with great energy. But this is a difficult business, and people's lives are sometimes difficult.
47Art does imitate life, it has to come from somewhere. To put boundaries and limitations on it doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
48Hopefully, that people could see a progression in my performances because that's how it's always felt to me.
49Jail was a result of me not taking time for myself. So I was forced to take some time for myself.
50How do I feel about being a star now? Well I still try to live life and enjoy what I am doing.
51I thought I'd get over being insecure if I became famous, but it hasn't happened. It just gets worse, really. You get more and more on edge, more nervous. These are all the things I'm dealing with. You think if you get famous, fear will go away and problems will go away. But they don't.
52The '80s was a wild decade, and I had some fantastic times. And I did some really fun work.
53I can promote until I am blue in the face, but ultimately nobody knows what makes a hit.
54This is what Hollywood tends to do. It tends to disregard tradition, history and anything factual, twisting it and turning it and making it all okay regardless of what the English may think of it.
55Drama can be an addiction. It's so, so sneaky. Jealousy - all of those things can really send you in a lot of different crazy directions.
56As you get older you learn some balance and mediation in your life - that's where I am right now. I feel pretty comfortable about things.
57I've calmed down, certainly, from the days of being 18, but I'm still having a good time.
58I was a shy, quiet kid. I was happiest playing by myself with my toys, rather than hanging around people.
59If I make a move, like raise my eyebrows, some critic says I'm doing Nicholson (Jack Nicholson). What am I supposed to do, cut off my eyebrows?
60[About working with John Woo on the 1995 action film Broken Arrow] He's a very cerebral man, very sweet, but very quiet, much in the same way Neil Jordan is. I don't know where John's English is today, but at that time, he didn't speak English that well, so our communication was limited. Basically, he told me I was supposed to be playing Steve McQueen and I forget who he said John Travolta was supposed to be, but that was all the direction I really got. (laughs) But what a genius he is, a real master of the medium.
61[About True Romance] This one was just one of those movies that comes along very rarely and it was incredibly special. And I love everybody who was involved in it... the director, Tony Scott - who was a good friend, whom I really loved and appreciated and would've done anything for. The rest of the cast was monumental.
62I tried to play the outright heroic type, like in Broken Arrow but I could tell John Travolta was having more fun than I was because he got to be the fun bad guy.
63As I've gotten to know myself over the years, I realised I'm kind of a sweet, sensitive guy, a shy guy, and communication is not something I'm so good at.
64My family was amazing; they exposed me to the world of show business, and, boy, it was the '70s and I got to spend a lot of time backstage at theaters and see the inner workings of how this entertainment industry is really put together.
65I've been taking my time now between projects looking for stuff that has a little bit more substance, that isn't surface. Some of the films that I've done in the past really were surface.
66If you can help guide somebody through a challenging moment because you've been there, that ends up becoming a great gift.
67I'm not a religious person by any means. But I certainly believe in some kind of a higher power and something looking out for me. I've definitely had angels that have either guided me or helped me through moments in my life, without a doubt.
68(1994 quote on fame) There's no question that I love it. There're so many perks to it, it's unreal. I thought I'd get over being insecure if I became famous, but it hasn't happened. It just gets worse, really. You get more and more on edge, more nervous. These are all the things I'm dealing with. You think if you get famous, fear will go away and problems will go away. But they don't.
69[Interview, August 2007] We (Winona Ryder) don't speak on a regular basis, but I love her. I've never gotten over the crush I had on her then. She is still the woman of my dreams.
70It still amazes me when I look at some of the films I've been a part of, and some of the people I've gotten to meet and work with. I also look back sometimes and realize that I was lucky to have lived through them and even to have survived them, at times.
71[on being accused of copying Jack Nicholson] If I make a move, like raise my eyebrows, some critic says I'm doing Nicholson. What am I supposed to do, cut off my eyebrows?
72I've always been fond of Winona Ryder.
73Good judgement comes from experience. Sometimes, experience comes from bad judgement.
74People need something to fill their papers, and I'm happy to provide.
