Recently we shared with you some photos from the Voices for Children Gala at the Mandarin Oriental Miami hotel in Brickell [see here]. During that evening’s festivities, we had a chance to CYInterview actor Christian Slater, for a second time. We last caught up with the actor at last year’s Miami Make-A-Wish Ball [see here]. The Hollywood veteran and his girlfriend Brittany Lopez were the evening’s honorary co-chairs for the Voices for Children Gala. You can see the three of us in the photograph above.
You can read the highlights of, or listen to the entire new CYInterview, with the Bullet to the Head actor, below:

The Voices for Children Gala raises money for its not-for-profit foundation. The organization works to ensure that all children who are abandoned, abused or neglected have an appointed Guardian ad Litem (legal advocate to represent their interests.) Discussing his thoughts on the event, Christian said this:
“I’m very excited about it. It’s an event honoring Voices for Children, which is a very important charity in the Miami Dade community. It helps to give children a voice that are stuck in the court systems that don’t have somebody to speak up for them.”
The actor, a fairly new resident of Miami, continues to lend a hand at various area charitable functions. In that regard, he had this to offer:
“I’m a new member of the community and to get the opportunity and to be asked to be apart of something as special as I felt this was, was a real honor and I met all these people here last year. Yolanda Berkowitz, she’s certainly a great leader for this organization and it’s fun to sit on the board with her.”
When asked about the favorite movie role of his career, Christian said his favorite role was not one of his:
“Favorite movie role? Indiana Jones. Not one of mine, but that’s one that I loved.”
