Christian Slater Engaged: 'Bullet To The Head' Actor Set To Marry Girlfriend Brittany Lopez (VIDEO)

Christian Slater confirmed he is set to marry again.

Slater and his girlfriend, Brittany Lopez, are engaged to be married, the actor confirmed on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" Wednesday night, Us Weekly notes. The 43-year-old has been dating Lopez for over three years.

When explaining to Fallon how he and Lopez first met, Slater revealed he initially thought she was a lesbian.

It all went down one morning while he was eating breakfast at Florida's Little Palm Island resort and "this girl came walking along with another lady, a slightly older lady." That girl was Lopez. "This spot, I guess, was famous for people proposing to each other, actually," Slater said. "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 proposes to this older lady."

He thought they were a couple. "I thought I'd 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 park," he continued. "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."

This will be the second trip down the aisle for Slater.

He was previously married to television producer Ryan Haddon, whom he divorced in 2007. In 2003, she was arrested for allegedly assaulting the actor during a fight in a Las Vegas hotel room. The couple separated shortly thereafter.

He began dating Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon in 2007, but they split two years later due to "the pressures of their respective careers," the Sun reported.
