Actor Corey Feldman: Pedophilia Remains ‘Number One Secret’ In Hollywood

By Zack Stieber

Actor Corey Feldman alleged in a new interview that pedophilia remains the “number one secret” in Hollywood.

Former and current actresses have recently exposed a string of sexual harassment incidents, along with women outside of Hollywood. But Feldman says he believes molestation remains an epidemic.

“Parents should be shaking,” Feldman told Lifetime, according to the Daily Mail, adding that he’s repeatedly refused when producers and others offer him show business opportunities for his 13-year-old son, Zen. “I don’t have my kid in this industry, what does that tell you?”

Feldman recently created a television film documenting his relationship with late friend and colleague Corey Haim. Feldman is best known for his work as a child actor, appearing in films in the 1980s including The Goonies, The Lost Boys, and Stand By Me.

Feldman said he was 15 when he was corrupted by an adult who introduced him to adult activities such as drugs and nightlife. He said he’s noticed many child actors have such adults influencing them.


Feldman said he will never “give up” fighting those who prey on children.

He revealed his own predator during an appearance on the Dr. Oz show in November.

Feldman said he made a promise to Haim before Haim died that he would expose predators working in Hollywood.

“Corey asked me to make sure that if he died before me that his story was told. I am doing exactly that,” he told E! News.

“The only thing left is he wants people to know who the assailant was, and I hope to God that one day that story can be told, too.”

Feldman has recently called out for those who witnessed incidents in Hollywood to come forward, in addition to those who suffered abuse.

“I guarantee you that there were other kids that had these experiences. They need to stand up and use their voice,” he told People.

“There are producers that know about things that happened on their sets, or agents who know things about their clients, and actresses and actors themselves—it’s time to use our voices.”
