Corey Feldman: Biggest problem in Hollywood is pedophilia

Corey Feldman: Biggest problem in Hollywood is pedophilia


According to former child star Corey Feldman, child molestation is rampant in the entertainment industry, as he told Nightline in an interview.

"The No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia," he said Wednesday. According to Feldman, the “casting couch” exists for children, too.

Feldman asserts that directors and other adults in the industry take advantage of young aspiring actors on a regular basis. “It's all done under the radar... But it's the big secret,” the 40-year-old said.

Feldman also claimed that former co-star Corey Haim's death last year was the end result of sexual abuse by an unnamed "Hollywood mogul." Feldman said that his friend’s substance addiction was "a symptom” of the molestation he experienced.

The actor previously revealed to GQ that he was raped by his assistant as a child. "It's something that will be addressed in my inner soul for the rest of my life, and it's something that truly affects me,” he told the magazine.

Interesting but also not really surprising if true.

1] That's all sorts of messed up.

2] I guess the Coreys aren't a fan of CLOWNHOUSE

A Hollywood mogul? Hmm.. any guesses? Louis B. Mayer?

What happened to Corey Feldman is the exact reason why I list "Not raping me" as one of the job duties when hiring an assistant.

So... Hollywood is a lot like the Catholic Church? That's fucked up.

People are surprised by this?  You hear stories all the time about pedos posing as agents and whatnot to lure children and their dumbass stage parents.  Makes sense to me that there are actually legit pedo agents.

If there were ever an actor whose words carry little weight. I seriously doubt this. I know it happens, but I'm pretty sure there are much more rampant and worse things.

Unless the Warner Brothers are secretly sacrificing children for Baal, I can't think of many "worse things" than pedophilia.

But, yeah, I'd take Feldman's opinion with an ocean of salt.

I have done extensive research using all the means modern science could provide me and I've come to a startling conclusion. Pedophiles in Hollywood are the exact same percentage as in the rest of the world. Shocking, I know.

When I saw the title of this thread my first thought was: well he was friends with Michael Jackson.

I've got good news and I've got bad news. The bad news is that I have lost my way. The good news is that I'm way ahead of schedule.

But Hollywood probably has a bigger percentage of hopeful parents willing to put their children at risk for fame.

That certainly goes without saying. But that is a broader cultural problem rather than something endemic to Hollywood. I'm certain there are quite a few people that have pimped themselves, their significant others or their children to get something. And I'm not talking just drugs and the like.

Well, let's be honest here, people. Who among us wouldn't have sucked a dick or two to be in The Goonies?

Sure, but Hollywood's the "Magic Store"! Now I wonder what Kermit really had to do to get that standard "Rich & Famous" contract from Orson W. Probably had to deep-fry Gonzo's harem.

Where do you think the Truffle Shuffle came from?  That was foreplay.

Not to derail, but this band is my only problem with The Lost Boys. That band looks and sounds like someone who knows nothing about rock n roll idea of a rock band. The movie was shot in Santa Cruz. I'm assuming a town that makes skate boards would have a punk scene. I'm by no means a punker, but a punk band would fit in that scene.

Even though I know it's completely incongrous, those kids should have been listening to Black Flag or Bad Religion , I absolutely kind of adore that Tim Cappello song. Even though it shouldn't work, I always thought it kind of did. Even if the audience seems to be listening to some completely different band.

ETA: Apparently I also have a Cappello radar or something, because I have literally no idea why I originally came into this thread. I obviously sensed that Cappello's good name was in danger.

Are you forgetting the flick was directed by Joel "Bat Nipples and Neon" Schumacher?

But greasy shirtless saxman is "80s awesome" all the same, I say. I still believe.

I was wondering when Sergio would pop up. The Lost Boys->Shirtless Sax Guy->Sergio is written in the internet constitution.

That is the 5th amendment of the internet constitution. The first amendment is: Anyone who disagrees with you shall be compared to Hitler.

Having seen Inglourious Basterds (again) on TV just 2 days ago, and seeing Chaz's avatar, I imagine this being said in Aldo Raine's Tennessee drawl.

I didn't mean to derail the thread, but since I did; I want give Schumacher credit for making the vampires in The Lost Boys older. In the original script the vampires were in their early teens.

Off topic, but do you know who used to say Nazis and Nazism the same way? Not in accent but in infection? Winston Churchill.

To put things back on topic, the latest Rolling Stone has a great story on priest molestations in the Philadelphia area.

He should have heeded the warning shot that was the death of the other Corey, because these two gentlemen...

A tell-all book? Howbout just calling the authorities?

And that article also revealed that he plans on ice-moonwalking to Billie Jean in UK's "Skating with the Stars". LOL

So he likes Michael Jackson now? At his last trial he testified against him saying Michael showed him porn or something.

There's something deeply horrible that goes on with the furtive desire for stage parents to get their kids into movies and TV.  There's an entire industry built around it and corporate apartment complexes where parents bring their kids to stay during pilot season, where they take acting/music/singing lessons.  You can't go to a mall with a child without being hounded by professed scouts.  This atmosphere is toxic for kids, and Corey Feldman should know, having spent his entire childhood in the business.  He's a victim, and I'm glad he's talking about it.  There's no shortage of stories of child actors that crash and burn post-adolescence.  Unless a kid has strong parents with an innate moral compass, a kid can get exploited in the worst way, and a lot of the parents drawn like moths to Hollywood are not strong enough to resist giving their children over to people who promise to make them stars.  I have no doubt that pedophilia happens on every level of the ladder, but is probably most rampant on the lower rungs.
