Starring in the acclaimed cult films Heathers and Pump Up the Volume, and drawing comparisons to a young Jack Nicholson, Christian Slater was the embodiment of teenage cool. His position as an A-list star continued through the 1990s, with brilliant performances in films like Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, True Romance, and Broken Arrow that further established him as a formidable force in acting. But fame and success did not sit easily with the young actor, and his off-screen behavior earned him a “bad boy” reputation. Despite the tabloid headlines, the actor has remained successful; more recently, he has turned his talents to the theater, starring in the stage version of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest as well as The Glass Menagerie. Nigel Goodall’s previous book was What’s Eating Johnny Depp?
