Remember, that while the first step is completing any of these amazing courses, the second and possibly more important step is taking action even if it’s imperfect action.
In the first part of this video, let us talk about Christian Slater’s Coconut Grove home and later on find out more about him.
For a half-decade, veteran actor Christian Slater has lived in Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood. The actor, who made his big break in the late 1980s cult classic movie “Heathers,” decided to sell his longtime home, about a thirty-minute drive from South Beach’s scantily clad entertainment district. The three bedroom, three and a half bath mansion with ocean views is on sale for $3.95 million before it heads up for auction.
The house, built of Old Spanish style architecture, includes four bedrooms and spans 3,370 square feet. The listing describes the property as “Italian-inspired” with the trappings of an old Spanish style home including arched doorways and terracotta tiles. Often found suburban in Los Angeles, Slater’s recently purchased home has a scenic outside space surrounded by palm trees and greenery which provides for a sense of privacy. A home purchased for $2.21 million in 2013, Slater originally bought the property in 2013.
Located in 1928 and known as “Villa Dolce far Niente,” the white stucco and red tile roofed Mediterranean style home is a private event space secluded behind wooden gates amidst a jungle of tropical plantings. Updated keeping with its original character, the not-quite-3,300 square foot villa offers three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, plus a detached poolside cabana with another bathroom.
The first floor of the main house includes a well-equipped kitchen with cutting-edge appliances. There’s a breakfast area, dining room, and den with lots of windows letting in plenty of light. The living room has been expanded for space-sipping luxury and three lavish custom mahogany doors open directly to a brick patio and pool. Outdoor, you’ll find an octagonal pool surrounded by tiki torches, furniture, and enough seating areas for small gatherings or big parties.
A porch is at the front of the house. It opens to an entrance hall where there are floor-to-ceiling arched doorways and wheat-colored hardwood floors. Once inside, a formal dining room with a wood burning fireplace leads to a formal sitting room and then reaches out into the back of the house. Another set of polished French doors open out to a sunny dining room with gardens beyond.
The kitchen features white onyx stone counters with a granite backsplash, freestanding stainless steel appliances and a chandelier made of hand-blown palm branches. The classic, open-concept dining area is equipped with gourmet breakfast banquettes and built-in coffee maker. There is also an adjacent laundry room, powder room for guests, and service wing complete with private office.
The second floor of the house offers three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and the suite with a spectacular rooftop terrace where you can have comfortable seating near the pool or relax in a private bath. The large suite includes an en-suite marble bathroom decorated with a separate shower, and a steam shower for your leisure time. It is also equipped with an entertainment area and bedroom so you can host guests.
The main bedroom of the house includes a bathroom that has been upgraded using vintage-style fixtures, and one of two guest bedrooms leads to a roof terrace overhanging the surrounding trees. Back behind the house, a brick terrace overlooks a rectangular pool with coral-colored stones edging it and carefully clipped greenery. Across from the pool is an outdoor cooking area/ dinette and adjacent is the guest cottage that offers living, sleeping and bathroom facilities.
Whether or not Mr. Slater and his family will be staying in one place for very long is unclear at this point, but it could be anywhere along the East or West Coast. Over the years, he has owned numerous homes across the country, among them being a waterfront cabin in Maine, a two-bedroom condo in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, and a 6500 square foot traditional home in L.A.’s tony Brentwood area.
With a wide range of projects in different stages, including “Pussy Island” written and directed by Zoë Kravitz and the 2019 Taffy Brodesser-Akner novel “Fleishman Is in Trouble,” Slater has recently been commissioned to work on various projects such as “Dirty John,” “Mr. Robot,” “Dr. Death,” and “Inside Job.”
For those who don’t know, Christian Michael Leonard Slater was born on August 18, 1969 in New York City. Michael Hawkins, who was a soap actor, and Mary Jo Slater (née Lawton), a casting agent, were his parents.
From a young age, Christian has been in show business. In 1976, he appeared on the TV soap opera, The Edge of Night. He achieved success in the 1980’s with his Broadway debut in “The Music Man.” He soon moved on to other Broadway stage shows including “Copperfield,” “Merlin” and “Macbeth.” In addition, he was also successful in the West End productions of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Swimming With Sharks.”
Slater’s big breakthrough came in the film Billie Jean. In the film, he played the character of Billie Jean’s brother Binx. However, even though the film was considered a blockbuster, it flopped to some degree. Despite its fame and popularity, it found itself with a cult following.
In the 1986 movie The Name of the Rose, Slater is seen as an actor. He is paired alongside Sean Connery in order to investigate murders at a monastery in Benedictine Abbot. Soon after, he performed in a number of films including Tucker: The Man and His Dream and Beyond the Stars before finally starring in his first lead role as one of the stars of Gleaming the Cube.
He moved to Hollywood in 1987 to pursue further acting opportunities. After starring in the cult classic, Heathers (1988), he began to be known as the leading personality of Hollywood, having many run-ins with the law.
Slater was past his prime by 1989 when he became a critical success with the comedy film Heathers, playing the character of JD, who alongside the protagonist, breaks down the social hierarchy at their school and gets away with it. The movie became an underground sensation and brought fame to Slater—it was billed as one of the most popular teen flicks from the 1980s.
He gained momentum in the film industry after his standout performance in the cult classic, Heathers. Christian Slater’s performance won him acclaim from both audiences and critics, giving him a solid foothold later on as he did similar roles as a troubled youth throughout his career, such as in Pump Up the Volume and Young Guns II.
With the release of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves in 1991, he scored his biggest box office hit until that point, with a major Hollywood film’s budget. The lead role of Will Scarlet allowed him to work with stars such as Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Rickman. The film was a commercial success with a gross of US$ 390 million worldwide. With this success, the film had a big impact on Slater’s career as an actor and made him one of the top actors at the time.
He continued to build his career with significant roles in movies such as Mobsters and Kuffs as well as a small role in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Having been a big Star Trek fan, Slater was excited to have participated in the film.
Fearing typecasting in dark roles, Slater expanded his film genres and starred in the romantic drama film Untamed Heart in 1993. He was also cast opposite Marisa Tomei during the same year. Furthermore, he essayed the role of Clarence Worley in the Quentin Tarantino-penned cult classic True Romance later that same year.
Over the course of the 1990s, he played a diverse range of roles – as an interviewee in Interview with the Vampire, as Lewis in Bed of Roses and as Riley Hale in Broken Arrow. Other films that he’s been involved with include Hard Rain and Very Bad Things.
Throughout the 2000s, he did regular roles on TV shows, starring in successful series The West Wing and Alias. His other TV show appearances include Jimmy Neutron Adventures, My Own Worst Enemy, and The Forgotten.
Since 2011, Christian Slater has been a part of many successful projects including The River Murders, Soldiers of Fortune, Bullet to the Head, The Power of Few, Nymphomaniac, Ask Me Anything, and The Adderall Diaries. In January 2017, he was seen in a film titled King Cobra.
From 2015-2019, Slater played a computer hacker in the highly acclaimed TV show Mr. Robot. By playing the titular character, who is an underground hacktivist leader and proving himself with two Golden Globe nominations and one win, he was the first actor to be nominated for this role.
Slater has voiced a variety of animated television shows such as “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” as the Grim Buccaneer, “The Lion Guard” as Ushari, and ” Milo Murphy’s Law” as Elliot Decker.
When it comes to awards, In one of the biggest roles of his career, Christian Slater won best actor in 1993 for Untamed Heart at the MTV Movie Awards.
He also won the Slate Award for Best Male Performance for Very Bad Things in 2000.
Slater earned the first of his Golden Globe Awards in 2016, three decades after he made his debut—in the category Best Supporting Actor – Series Miniseries or Television Film for Mr. Robot. His stellar performance in the show also earned him the Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series Miniseries or Television Film.
He is also well-known for his relationships with stars Winona Ryder, Christina Applegate and Samantha Mathis as well as once being engaged to actress/model Nina Huang. In 2000, he married Ryan Haddon, a daughter of 1970s model Dayle Haddon.
They have two children, Jaden Christopher born in 1999 and Eliana Sophia born in 2001. In 2005, they separated and later divorced, but remained dedicated to raising their children.
In 2014 Slater married his girlfriend, Brittany Lopez. They’ve been together for three years but have yet to be blessed with a child. They welcomed their daughter on August 16th 2019 and they named her Lena.
To end this, let’s include this quote Christian Slater once told in an interview, “I’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.”
