Christian Slater plans to leave his former wild Los Angeles lifestyle behind for good by making London his permanent home.

The Hollywood star, 35, who has been appearing on the West End stage in a critically-acclaimed production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, has decided to quit the star-packed city to reside in the British capital with his wife Ryan Haddon and their two children JADEN, five, and three-year-old ELIANA.

Slater's mother and Los Angeles casting agent MARY JO SLATER says, "I don't think he would ever go back if he could help it.

"Life in Los Angeles is no fun. He was raised in New York and he finds London is more like that, only with more to do."
