Christian Slater Prepared For A Globes Loss
In a funny interview on Live! With Kelly and Michael Monday, Christian Slater talked with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan about winning the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for Mr. Robot. Or, more accurately, he talked about planning how he was going to act if he lost.
Slater also told Ripa and Strahan the new perspective Mr. Robot has given him on computer hackers.

“That was definitely one of the wild things while we were making the show,” Slater explained on Live! “We’d shoot a scene, and then the next day, we’d read something in the paper that just absolutely mirrored what we were doing in the show. It was insane that that was happening.”
The Mr. Robot star, who famously joked earlier this month that he was changing his password to “goldenglobe,” elaborated on the power that some computer hackers have, calling it “remarkable,” and reminded viewers that -- while most of us are online to enrich our lives -- there are some people out there who use the internet as “a huge weapon.”
“You have to protect yourself and stay on top of it because these guys are very, very sneaky,” Slater warned, adding with perfect comedic timing, “although I’m a huge fan of all of them.”
