Life, Career, and Relationship
Brittany worked for a museum as an assistant director at around the time she met Christian Slater. Following their marriage, she decided to leave her work behind to focus on being a homemaker and raising their child. Based on interviews, the two met while in Miami, Florida where she was taking her aunt on a short vacation at Little Palm Island Resort, talking to her about romance.
She jokingly proposed to her aunt to prove a point of how romance can be made in the resort, which Slater saw, and thought it was a lesbian couple proposing one another.
He approached them to congratulate them, which resulted in a comic moment. Following their exchange, the two became close friends and started dating shortly afterwards. They began taking trips together, leading to their marriage. Since then, she’s been busy raising their daughter, primarily supporting her husband from the background. The two have appeared at many red carpet events together, including the Golden Globe Awards and premiers of television shows Slater has been a part of.
