Corey Feldman’s newly released documentary, My Truth: The Rape of Two Coreys, names plenty of people who assaulted the filmmaker — but it also included grisly details regarding the abuse that his costar and longtime friend, Corey Haim, was subjected to early on in his Hollywood film career.
Corey Haim was a breakout TV star in his native Canada at only 10 years old and had a promising future. So what happened to him?
He made his feature film debut opposite Peter Weller, Sarah Jessica Parker, Robert Downey Jr., and Christopher Collet. The experience for the young actor on his first day of filming was an intense one. Peter played the abusive boyfriend of Corey’s mom in the flick, and off-camera he collared the young actor and pushed him against a wall after Corey complimented his performance.
It took several production assistants to pull Peter off of Corey; he attributed his outburst to “method acting.”
