Actor Christian Slater went back to school to earn an equivalency high school diploma, so he could be more of a role model to his kids.
The Broken Arrow star admits he never took his education very seriously when he was younger and knew it was high time to return to the classroom when he became a father to Jaden and Eliana.
The reformed bad boy tells Parade magazine, "I wanted to be able to look them (kids) in the eye and feel they were looking in the eyes of somebody who was making an effort to take care of himself and be a better person.
"High school was not something that I remotely took seriously, and now I've got these kids, so it's like, 'Oh, gosh, what am I going to do? I obviously care for them to get an education, and I want them to take it seriously, so I'm going to have to do something.'
"I had to go to a high school classroom with a bunch of kids getting their GED (General Equivalency Diploma). It was a three-day test. I did very well on the reading portions of it. I was very proud of that... I squeaked by. That was a good moment."
