Corey Feldman held little back in an interview Saturday following Lifetime’s airing of A Tale of Two Coreys, a TV film documenting his relationship with his late friend and colleague Corey Haim.

Feldman, best known for his work in 1980s films such as as The Goonies, The Lost Boys and Stand By Me, sat down with Shaun Robinson for a chat in which topics included his friendship with Haim, his career and how he believes Hollywood remains plagued by child molesters in high places.

The 46-year-old said that pedophilia remains the ‘number one secret’ in Hollywood, a mantra he will repeat ‘until people stop ignoring him.’

Feldman said that even in the current environment in show business – rocked with calls for reform the past three months amid a wave of sexual harassment and abuse allegations toward dozens of high-powered men – he ‘absolutely’ believes molestation remains epidemic amid show business movers and shakers.

‘Parents should be shaking,’ Feldman said, adding that he’s repeatedly refused to listen to any show business opportunities for his 13-year-old son, Zen. ‘I don’t have my kid in this industry, what does that tell you?

In the chat, Feldman said that he was corrupted by an adult minder who introduced him to drugs, Los Angeles nightlife and a host of other adult activities from the time he was 15, with the intent to molest him.

Feldman said being molested by a trusted adult is ‘the most confusing things to a kid’s mind.’

Feldman said that he was invited to a party thrown by the son of a famous casting director, in which child molesters and child performers were mixed on the guest list.

‘There was a group of pedophiles around all these kids,’ Feldman said.

The actor revealed that he only travels with armed guards after receiving death threats – and being told there’s a contract out on his life – amid his outspokenness on the issue by people ‘who don’t want to be unmasked.’

Regardless of the danger, Feldman vowed he’d ‘never give up’ or ‘stop fighting’ the predators who prey on children.

On the topic of Haim, Feldman said that his friend would be grateful for his current efforts, as he’d expressly asked him to tell his story shortly before his death, with a premonition his life would end soon.

He said that Haim had ‘rotted’ his mind with drugs to escape the pain of the sex abuse he endured.

On his own struggles, Feldman compared his battle with drug use to a shooting star – a fast rise, explosion and quick conclusion.

At one point, Feldman said he would travel to downtown LA to purchase heroin from drug dealers and gang members.

‘I remember chasing after gangsters, cause I thought that I was tough,’ he said.

Feldman recalled another troubled timeframe in which he kept his grandfather’s gun under his mattress – and would contemplate suicide on a daily basis – before erupting into prayer.

Looking ahead, Feldman said that he was hoping to reconvene an acting career he believes was taken away from him amid the aforementioned tumult. He said he hoped he could be given a break and offered ‘something cool.’
