Corey Feldman gets another 15 minutes

With the recent passing of Corey Haim, it became the perfect opportunity for Corey Feldman to get on tv and voice his dissatisfaction with Hollywood. Feldman showed up to Larry King yesterday and whined about how child actors, specifically him and Haim, were treated. He also says we should outlaw making fun of people.

“Where were all these people the last 10 years, the last 15 years, of Corey’s life,” Feldman, 38, asked. “Where were all these people to lend a handout, to reach out to him and say, you’re a legend, you’re an amazingly talented wonderful person who’s never really gone out of his way to hurt anyone, other than himself?”

“In this entertainment industry, in Hollywood, we build people up as children, we put them on pedestals, and then, when we decide they’re not marketable anymore, we walk away from them,” he added. “Then we taunt them and we tease them … It’s okay for society as a whole to poke fun at, to point fingers at, us as human beings. Why is it okay to kick somebody when they’re down? I don’t think it should be tolerated anymore.”

Uh oh. Someone call the wahmbulance. What Feldman doesn’t understand is Hollywood isn’t an adoptive parent there to support you until death. Hollywood first and foremost is a business and much like any business, you get dropped when you outlive your usefulness. Just because you get a taste of fortune and fame doesn’t mean you deserve it forever. This is why you don’t see Apple or Microsoft giving handouts to people they’ve fired. Actors are such babies. They live in their own little world where everybody should worship them when they haven’t done anything to deserve it. Oh, excuse me. You were in Lost Boys. Allow me to lay my body across this puddle so you don’t step in it.

The truth, though, is that these two were/are sickly fascinating for reasons that I can’t understand. Perhaps it’s just the curiousity, perhaps it’s watching someone crumbling in front of our eyes.

Anyone who didn’t see Haims’ death coming has got to be blind. He was working overtime to destroy himself.

IDK — can’t tell if Corey Feldman wanted face time or to pay tribute to his friend or both, but he got to Larry King in an awful hurry. First off, Corey, grow up and get rid of that ridiculous hair thing. It’s stupid, distracting, narcissistic and a look at me thing. You’re old enough to be over yourself. Also, every question Larry asked Corey was met by a LONG-WINDED 15 minute answer. That got old quick. I do have to say that Corey has come a long way since The Surreal Life, where he was a complete insecure, neurotic,… Read more »

I am very taken aback by how insanely insensitive this article is. Corey Feldman’s long time best friend just died, and you call him a whiner? Despite what a goddamn jerk you are, I hope you never have to endure the death of your best friend, because it is heartbreaking. Although it might lend you some apparently much needed perspective. I wish i had never stumbled upon this article. Thanks for nothing, google news. I won’t be making the mistake of clicking on anything from the Blemish again. The fact that anybody would pay to read this garbage makes me… Read more »

Could Feldman be more of a douchebag? Haim was a filthy, no talent junkie. Whining on Larry King about how people should not pick on former child stars is just pathetic. Perhaps you and dead boy should have taken your earnings, diligently studied to get an education, establish real careers and become responsible adults. Instead you are both loser deadbeats has beens and now Haim is taking a dirt nap. What sorry excuses for human beings. You actually believe your own press releases as if you have some rare talent. You were in the right place, right time, right look.… Read more »

Feldman is a jerk who was supposed to be Haims best friend, BUT he is also still friends with the pervert who raped Corey Haim when he was just 14. Corey Haim blasted Feldman only recently as to why he wasn’t there for him and why was he still friends with the other pervert. If being a ‘sick junkie’ AS ONE COMMENTOR PUT IT, – Well wouldn’t you have some issues if you were raped?
