Corey Feldman Says Pedophilia No. 1 Problem for Child Stars, Contributed to Demise of Corey Haim

"I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That's the biggest problem for children in this industry. ... It's the big secret," Feldman said.

The "casting couch," which is the old Hollywood reference to actors being expected to offer sex for roles, applied to children, Feldman said. "Oh, yeah. Not in the same way. It's all done under the radar," he said.

"I was surrounded by [pedophiles] when I was 14 years old. %E2%80%A6 Didn't even know it. It wasn't until I was old enough to realize what they were and what they wanted %E2%80%A6 till I went, Oh, my God. They were everywhere," Feldman, 40, said.

The trauma of pedophilia contributed to the 2010 death of his closest friend and "The Lost Boys" co-star, Corey Haim, Feldman said.

"There's one person to blame in the death of Corey Haim. And that person happens to be a Hollywood mogul. And that person needs to be exposed, but, unfortunately, I can't be the one to do it," Feldman said, adding that he, too, had been sexually abused by men in show business.

Feldman said his realization followed the discovery of what some adults around him had allegedly done to other children. "There was a circle of older men %E2%80%A6 around this group of kids. And they all had either their own power or connections to great power in the entertainment industry," he said.

Feldman admitted that Haim struggled with addiction but said it was a mechanism to cope with his demons. "It was a symptom," he said.

In their 2008 reality TV show, "The Two Coreys," Feldman and Haim confronted each other on their dark past.

"[T]here's a lot of good people in this industry, but there's also a lot of really, really sick, corrupt people. And there are people ... who have gotten away with it for so long that they feel they're above the law, and that's got to change," Feldman said.

Corey Haim's mother said in an email to ABC News, "I am not willing to discuss or respond to anything Corey Feldman has to say. He shouldn't be talking about my kid. I wish he would talk about himself only and leave my son out of it."

[quote]Why not? If not him, then who? What does he have to lose?

A lot of money, at least? Since he would definitely get sued if it's a powerful Hollywood boss and after the all the years the evidence is probably all gone (if there was any besides witnesses). So it would be his word against a lot of powerful people - not just the molestor(s), but also those protecting the 'brand'.

Don't get me wrong, I think people who do such things to children should definitely get exposed, but I can also understand why a victim (even if he's a grown man now) would be vary of exposing himself.

My guess, R2, is the mogul could completely destroy his life or bury it beneath a ton of litigation that Feldman can't afford.

Not really - only the casting-couch urban *legend* is prevalent in showbiz - and molesting children is an entirely different subject than adults (usually women) being harassed by skeevy producers. That's not to say I disagree with Corey or his assertion that child stars are routinely molested.

R27 What's even odder is that during MJ's last trial, Feldman would tell anyone that would listen that he thought Jackson was guilty and would make cryptic references about things he knew. Then the next thing we know, Jackson dies and Feldman shows up to the memorial service DRESSED AS MICHAEL JACKSON! Suddenly he is too distraught and all torn up and yammering on and on about how people always misjudged Jackson and no one knew him like he did. This ugly fuck is nothing but a media whore. He spent years swimming in Haim's wake, and when that ship sunk he had nothing else to latch onto.

In "The Godfather," they briefly referred to this vile behavior - with parental approval.

Producer "Jack Woltz" has the birthday party for a very young actress at the studio (even gives her a pony), then later at his home when he's having dinner with "Tom," you see the little girl at the top of the stairs, crying and disheveled. Her mother takes her back into the bedroom.

The majority of child actors turn out to be very well adjusted adults. With the exception of Danny Bonaduce, none of the other kids from the Partridge Family cast have any terrible issues. All the kids from the Brady Bunch seem to be doing okay. None of the girls from The Facts of Life appear to be causing much trouble. The kids that were on Little House on the Prairie kept their noses clean. The common denominator for all the kids that have had problems seems to be their home life was a fucking mess, in which case were they actors or not, they would have been troublesome adults no matter what.

To continue with R43,

Susan Dey has had ongoing psychological problems for years, but esp. the first few years after the show went off the air.

On Growing Pains:

Tracey Gold was a raging anorexic who still deals with her anorexia as an ongoing issue.

Kirk Cameron is a screaming fundie. Don't tell me that's not a psychological problem.

The youngest kid, who played Ben, was on drugs for a long time but is now cleaned up.

At least 1 out of 3 of the Home Improvement kids is royally screwed up (the youngest, who was a heroin addict married to someone in her 30s when he was a teen)

Buffy on Family Affair OD'd.

The list goes on and on. While many of them rescued themselves, a few didn't. Usually, the parental involvement is the key difference between later problems or smooth sailing.

I remember when the first Harry Potter movie was about to go into production, the kids' handlers made a preemptive strike against Michael Jackson. They told him to not even think of inviting Daniel Radcliffe or any of the kids to "hang out" at Neverland; they'd all be too busy with the movie series, and thus unavailable for the next 10 years. And, oh yeah--Jacko was not allowed on the set.

Jackson tried to become besties with JK Rowling, proposing that they team up for a Harry Potter musical--Rowling rejected the idea. In 2009--practically the second the stars became legal(but could still pass for younger)--Jacko swooped in, inviting the cast to attend the first night of his comeback concert in London. Of course we know how that turned out.

Pedos go where the kids are. They are experts at identifying and grooming vulnerable kids (and their parents or guardians as needed.) The fact that most people refuse to believe that it could happen, or when faced with undeniable proof will somehow rationalize it, just helps them along the way.

One of the most horrifying things about those kiddie beauty pageants like the one DL favorite Mrs. Patsy Ramsey liked to put her little JonBenet into is that they're obviously showcases where scumbag mothers can pimp out their babies for fun and profit.

I just think you should have some common sense.

R150, dating a 16 year old is fine... if you're also 16 or 17/18. Don't act like it's normal to be some 30 year old pursuing a 16 year old just because they're "legal." Some of you remind me of the entitled fraus who think their little precious should be allowed to run amok because there's no law against it. Just because they're "legal" doesn't mean you shouldn't act like an adult. I mean really, are you so petulant that you have to go for a 16 year old rather than an 18 year old, and then have the audacity to rationalize it?

For the person asking if the pedophilia was all in his head: Corey Feldman was abused when he was 14 by a guy he paid - I don't remember as what, PA? He always said that, since he was defending Michael Jackson in 1993. In their reality show Corey Haim accused Feldman of not helping him when he told him he was raped at 14. So he did know sex was happening. He probably means he didn't realize those guys were predators, instead of friends who just wanted to party.

I think most of that age limits in the western part of the world were chosen because teenagers have sex with teenagers, not because someone thought it would be splendid for a 15 year old to date a guy in his 40's. Society itself regulates things like this - not many people would blink an eye if a 18 year old is dating (and possibly having sex with) a 16 year old (well, unless maybe in USA). If the older partner is in his thirties it would be a whole different matter - but I still think GTF away from my daughter/son/friend is much more appropriate reaction in this case than screaming 'rape!', which just trivialises the word.

And I think most of the countries who have the age of consent also have laws in place to legally prevent people in positions of authority from abusing those in their care (I'm extrapolating from the 3 countries' laws that I know of). So yes, it's legally a difference if a 17 year old is dating a 21 year old fellow student or 21 year old assistant teacher.

I can't believe so many Americans honestly argue that you are morally a child before you turn 18 and from that day on you are a fully grown adult, who therefore should only seek people older than yourself as a partner. Not even the law in the USA backs up this ridiculous viewpoint anymore. The age of consent is 16 or 17 in many states. And no, that doesn't mean old sleazebags hitting on teenagers is not gross.

by Anonymousreply 22908/13/2011

I know that sounds sleazy at first, but quite frankly the age difference or how young someone is isn't of great importance to me.

It is just wrong that one person of authority (based on age, wisdom, a relative, a boss, a celebrity, polititian etc.) abuses his power / social status and forces himself on to someone who either hasn't matured properly yet to understand that this is not ok, has been manipulated / brainwashed into thinking to be at fault or the aggressor, or can't say no out of fear of the consequences.

Yes, age numbers can be a measurement and indication for someone's maturity, but sometimes this type of thinking distracts from the true (moral) crime that has been committed and from the individual case.

That is what other teens are there for. If you are an adult trying to justify or explain why you feel you need to become part of that path of discovery - it is because you are a loser, a nonce and need to be shot.

Go find someone your own age to play with rather than a young person who still is unsure and does not need a preying pervert offering the kind of mature that an adult would tell them to fuck off over.

Disengage from them. Look at the perverts in the Catholic church. Now society tries to link pedo perverts to gays and give gays a bad name. Bad news.

r259, does it clash with your agenda to establish the misconception that homosexuality is the same as pedophilia and turning Datalounge into a new "One Million Moms" site?

I'm sorry. Really really sorry.

If you can't handle an adult conversation you should look for some place that plays by your rules or simply accept that some posters and posts won't meet your (high or low) moral and IQ standards.

Not really. And not in the way you are portraying.

Some kids are CURIOUS about the topic sex and want to ask QUESTIONS. Asking questions doesn't mean that they want to be fucked by daddy and his friends or fingered by mommy and her pals from book club.

Just a week or so ago I saw a snippet on one of those TV gossip shows that had Usher saying that Justin B. wants a particular sports car and that "he knows what he has to do to get it."

urgh, urgh, not a fan of Justin Bieber, and it could be something totally innocent, but in the context of this thread it sounds really ominous.

also, i'm sorry, but no matter how "interested" a 12 year old is in sex, there has got to be some part of your brain that thinks 'hmm young enough to be my child, maybe i should find someone who isn't half my age', and stops you. if that doesn't happen you deserve to be locked up where you have no chance of meeting children and i could care less if i sound fundie or over-zealous.

And yet another idiot proves his humanity and moral superiority by jumping at the chance to demand vigilante justice. It never fails, does it?

And this one seems to think that spouting a slang word at us somehow crystallizes the whole issue.

Yeah, bub, we get it. It's bad. When it happened to me as a kid it was bad. But that doesn't mean I think the awful creep should die for it. What gives you the right to pontificate?

The same can be said of you: what gives YOU the right to pontificate?

Some of us do think that sexual predators deserve to die. You think that just because you don't that you're morally superior to those of us who disagree. Wrong. You're part of the fucking problem.

Violent offenders, repeat sexual offenders, serial killers -- these creatures deserve to be put down like rabid dogs because that is exactly what they are. They are monsters who cannot be rehabilitated.

Re: Corey Feldman naming those who hurt him -- it's brave of him to do so. Hopefully there won't be negative consequences for him.

Haim and Feldman seemed chained to one another, didn't they? I always hope, whenever my thoughts turn to one of them, that their trauma never went further than the terrifying lengths (abuse, sexual and chemical) Feldman has already revealed. I'm convinced some sick sh--t goes on in The Hollywood Machine, and those two are evidence if ever there was.

Still, most victims go 'avoidant' when it comes to abuse scenarios and the company they kept at the time. I could never decide why The Coreys never went their separate ways for that reason. Why make a point to stick to another victim like glue, and augment your trauma?

They always seemed to be trapped in this deeply co-dependent, very tormented 'marriage' like bond, with a sweet and romantic element when together, in spite of all the controlling elements (from Feldman) and blaming (Haim).

Opie and Anthony did a 'train-wreck' with both of them about five or six years ago. They gave both Coreys shit for talking over each other constantly and alienating the crew to make in-jokes with each other, but also called them 'lovable' and 'charming' and wanted them back on the show, in spite of the awful banter.

What Feldman says in his book his that at the age of 13, Corey Haim, like any teenage boy, was horny as fuck all the time and would constantly whine about how bad he wanted to get laid. He remember one specific episode where both Coreys were alone in a room to eat their lunch, and once again Corey Haim was moaning about how bad he wanted to have sex.

Then one guy of their entourage enters the room and invites Corey Haim to follow him in the next room. He mentions that the guy is disgustingly fat and ugly. Next thing he hears, is how both the fat guy and Corey Haim are going at it.

The guy was a fat pig but he had a trick: coke. Give some horny random teenage boy a line of coke and suddenly any cock will do!

So that's what he says in the book. He also says that anyone who was part of their "team" back then would know who it was (like there was only one fat guy among them).

Corey Feldman gives me the creeps.

by Anonymousreply 29301/21/2015

Feldman is very small in stature, and seems to be shrinking, to me. His wiki puts him at 5"9, which he may well have been at 15/16/'The Lost Boys' era, but no longer. IMDB would have it that he's 5"5, which sounds more accurate.

I'd also love to know what his natural hair color is. He mentions in his book that his mother forced him to dye his hair blond, yet his hair in his earliest roles seems is a natural-looking tawny, honey-gold ANYWAY. I've never seen him with platinum hair, only jet black...so he must not know his real color?

by Anonymousreply 29401/22/2015

Not so sure about the Spielberg guesses. Skip to around 4m20s in the link below (Two Coreys episode 'Cold Turkey'), and Spielberg is mentioned with no real sign of revulsion or reaction from either Corey, but as part of a joke between them about their relevance.

Feldman says something to Haim like '[you were] crying on the steps of Amblin...Spielberg's like, 'what's that on my shoe? Oh, it's Corey Haim'.

It makes Spielberg sound like an ass, but would they make such jokes if he'd hurt them?

by Anonymousreply 29501/22/2015

I don't think that sleeping with one or two guys with power tends to be enough. And of course having just one or two times sex or fondling is not enough either. I think there were and are also many friends and acquaintances of the powerful involved. Someone from Hollywood said "Everybody had the Coreys".

Because that's the way hair coloring works: someone comes in and touches it up while you're asleep, so you never, ever get a glimpse of the real color near the roots. No one who colors their hair knows what their real color is, doncha know....

So glad to see that all these stars are willing to go through so much (drugs, child abuse, etc) just to keep entertaining ME!

Even dosed on enough valium and oxy to floor a horse, Haim managed to outshine the entire cast and entire plotline of Lost Boys II: The Thirst in a single, 30 second cameo.

For a typical 'child-star' actor (pushed unwilling into the industry by parents, kept there only by toxic friends and substances, and the lure of skipping classes), he was unusually gifted and nuanced. I hope they mention him in film discourse in years to come.
