In an in-depth interview with THR, the 'Goonies' and 'Lost Boys' star opens up about his late best friend Corey Haim's rape by a man at age 11, the preteen parties where predators stalked and groomed their marks, and the "dark side" of his close pal Michael Jackson: "The man is gone. Let him rest in peace."
A recent interview with Elijah Wood has reignited the conversation on pedophilia in the entertainment business. The Lord of the Rings star later clarified, first to The Hollywood Reporter and then on his personal Twitter account, that his comments about "something major ... going on in Hollywood" were based not on his own experiences and observations but rather on news reports and the 2015 documentary film An Open Secret.

But another former child actor — Corey Feldman, star of such iconic 1980s movies as The Goonies, Stand by Me and The Lost Boys — was not so lucky. In past interviews, his A&E reality series The Two Coreys and his 2013 memoir, Coreyography, Feldman has detailed how he was preyed upon by men in the industry. His own experiences were not as nightmarish as what befell his Two Coreys co-star, the late Canadian actor Corey Haim. Haim was just 11 when, Feldman says, a man raped him on a movie set. (Haim died in 2010 at age 38 after years of drug addiction.)

Should have named this crap a long time ago, I mean it is no secret that something happened, he has been talking about it for a decade. Stop with the nonsense, go to the police and name names. This is just sad, his life and the other Corey's were marred in tragedy and bad decision making.

If only these kids had adults around them they could trust and would give them support, then perhaps then they could heal and come forward to make sure others do not suffer the same fate, I don't blame him, but in order for him to heal he needs to name his abusers.

I can probably imagine what the blow out is and who he's supporting is not the abusers but the victims. He's probably been begged by those victims to not come forward. It'll happen, and he really should do it in the lifetime of the abusers.

I understand that, but Corey is dead, he dealt with serious mental distress for so many years, many of them did so many drugs and were clearly harmed, yet Corey despite speaking to the effect that he was abused as were many others he still won't go to the police. I get that statute of limitation may have ran out, but who is to say that there are not young children being abused right now by his abusers? I guess without having been there it is hard to say what someone would do in his shoes, however, if you are not going to the police, then seek therapy and I guess not put a spotlight on people who may be innocent. When you make statements without naming names then innocent people could be looked at as the offenders. I just wish parents were more involved with their kids in Hollyweird and not so drunk on money. I also wish that people (the public) didn't glorify Hollywood as some God and all knowing group of people, because they are by far depraved, morally corrupt people.

Corey Feldman is alive; it's Corey Haim who's dead right? Is that what you meant? I think we just don't know from our points of view and probably Corey F inside is still a kid until that step is taken. Now's as good a time as any. I bet a lot of it is the blackmail that would come with it if they were named. If Jimmy Savile had been shamed at the time then he would have taken down the trusts and charities and all his funding with it. Which way do they go?

Yes, one Corey died in 2010. I should speak Corey H (RIP)and Corey F (alive and kicking)

I really think there's a catch 22 somewhere here.
