Christian Slater Used to Like Action Figures!

Thursday, April 7, 2011

Christian SlaterCHRISTIAN Slater has blamed one of his former flames for casting his beloved Star Wars collection to the dark side.

The Heathers hunk, 41, says he is still upset at the losing his favorite toys for a second time.

“I used to geek out over action figures,” says Christian.

“I would go nuts for them. I was replenishing the Star Wars collection I had as a kid. I had just about completed it and then I was dating a girl and she thought I was too old to have all that stuff. I had ships hanging and everything but it all had to go.”

Slater recently revealed he “reached out” to Lindsay Lohan to help her deal with her rehabilitation.

Former drug addict Christian admits he has tried to help the 24-year-old star — who finished her fifth rehab stay in early January — by sending her an email because he understands how difficult it is to deal with dependency issues.

“Addiction is not pretty and you don’t fully understand it unless you’re dealing with it head-on,” he said.

“That’s why when I see other kids struggling, I will sometimes reach out to them — a call or an email.”
