What did Chris Evans tweet?
No-one is quite sure what prompted Evans – perhaps he was watching a Slater movie – but, for some reason, the actor tweeted about the 80’s icon.
Evans wrote: “If Christian Slater from 1989 walked into the room, and I had never heard his name before, and had to guess what it was just from what he looked like, I would guess ‘Christian Slater’.”
We’re not sure if it’s the dark, pushed-back hair giving Slater the bad-boy-esque look, but we kind of agree! He does look like a ‘Christian Slater’.
7 other perfectly named celebrities
Now we’ve all established that Christian Slater definitely suited his name back in the ’80’s, we started thinking about other icons that couldn’t pull off another name.
So, technically, Elton John isn’t the Rocketman singer’s real name. The music legend was born Reginald Kenneth Dwight, but we’re so glad that he goes by his stage name because it identifies with him so well!
It could be the iconic glasses or the outrageous outfits – there is just something about the flamboyance of the singer in contrast with two extremely common names (Elton and John) that just works.
Close your eyes and imagine – really imagine – if Harry Styles was named anything other than Harry Styles. He’s not a Daniel, or a Ben or a James Styles.
We can’t put a pin in it, but the Watermelon Sugar artist was definitely born to be a Harry.

A day-to-day name would just not cut it for the GRAMMY winning artist. Beyoncé needed to be named something as legendary and as iconic as she is.
Her full name, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, makes her sound like she means business – and she does!
Again, Marilyn Monroe might have been a stage name for Norma Jeane, but it’s incredibly fitting.
Marilyn Monroe established her name into a type of brand: representing the beauty, glitz, and glamour of Hollywood. It’s difficult to imagine the Some Like it Hot actress with any other name.
The name change came about after studio executive Ben Lyon suggested that she changed it from Norma.
We feel this one speaks for itself. The name is so unique that it’s hard to imagine the actor being called anything other than Channing!
Donald Trump has established his name as a brand (The Trump Tower, his Presidency etc.), and people globally will be able to picture his face just by saying his name.
Perhaps it’s because he has been made so prominent in the media over the last few years, or maybe he just really suits the name Donald.
Ed Sheeran is definitely an Ed. No question about it.
It doesn’t feel quite right calling him Edward though…
