Christian Slater Reflects on His Troubled Past: 'Admit Defeat'

Christian Slater gives cameras an enthusiastic pose while arriving at the Ed Sullivan Theater for his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday (August 31) in New York City.

The 47-year-old Mr. Robot star appears in the latest issue of GQ where he talks about his career and his past.

“It’s more a testament to just being honest with yourself about where you’re at,” Christian told the mag. “It’s like, we’ve tried it as many times as it takes your way, and eventually, hopefully, if you’re lucky and fortunate enough, you get to the point where it’s like, okay, my way—it’s not helping me, it’s not helping anybody around me, it’s not really creating any happiness for anybody else in anybody’s world. So am I going to be humble enough to admit defeat and try a different way?”
