Former child-star Corey Feldman is making some shocking claims in a new interview with ABC’s Nightline.
The 40-year-old actor, who starred in hit films in the 1980s like “The Goonies” and “Stand By Me,” told Nightline that the biggest threat to children in show business is something that just isn’t talked about — pedophilia.
“I can tell you that the number one problem in Hollywood was, and is, and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry… it’s all done under the radar. It’s the big secret,” he said.
Feldman said he was surrounded by pedophiles when he was 14-years-old and didn’t realize until he was older just what these “vultures” were and what they wanted. Feldman says it was these people who abused both him and close friend and troubled teen actor Corey Haim, who died in 2010 at the age of 38. (source)
