Actor Corey Feldman: Pedophilia #1 Problem for Child Stars, Led to Death of Corey Haim
ABC TV ^ | 8/11/11

Corey Feldman has no idea what it's like not to be famous. After all, he starred in a McDonald's ad when he was just 3 years old.

"I literally was famous before I knew my own name," he said in an interview with ABC News' "Nightline."

The ad led to roles in films such as "Stand By Me," "Goonies" and "License to Drive." He was a household name before he could read.

But being famous and underage, he said, caused serious damage to him and his friends, including loss of innocence and a lost childhood.

Watch the full story on the "Primetime Nightline: Celebrity Secrets" special "Underage and Famous," on ABC.

"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.

"I was surrounded by [pedophiles] when I was 14 years old. … Didn't even know it. It wasn't until I was old enough to realize what they were and what they wanted … 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.

This from the man who idolized Michael Jackson. Please let us hear from someone more credible.

I believe him. I believe it applies in politics too. God will not be mocked and these old molesters will face judgment day, despite what they currently “believe.”

Feldman needs to man up and name names. It’s not like it would hurt his acting career. lol

Hey there are a lot of people who were impressed by Michael Jackson’s talent. I believe you are trying to deflect the truth here by making this thread about Michael Jackson.

PEDOPHILES RAGE THROUGHOUT HOLLYWEIRD AND WASHINGTON DC and that is the point.

Hey, I got a great idea! Let’s give celebrities a media platform to bloviate about public policy and let’s all take them seriously! No important public policy issue should be made unless congress hears testimony from Sally Fields on farm policy and Jackson Brown on nuclear power and Matt Damon on economic policy. I mean, what could possibly go wrong? And Congress doesn’t have anything more important to do, does it?

It takes great courage to take on Hollywood. I don't doubt at all what Corey Feldman is claiming. Between the morally bankrupt producers, moguls, directors, etc, and the pressures child actors are under with their ambitious stage parents who are pushing them into the limelight, it is the exception rather than the rule when one of these kids grows up to be normal.

Worth repeating.

I would guess that he’s afraid to spill the beans because he doesn’t have hard evidence. I don’t know what he gains by coming out with this information because saying this without naming names will still taint his image. Not that he has much of an image left...but nonetheless, it would do that.

This is disgusting, I’ve never heard this before but, wouldn’t doubt it for one minute. Hollywood is full of sick individuals. Just look at the casting couch.

What good would that do? Look at Roman Polanski.
