Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

One of the most popular child actors of the 1980s, Corey Feldman was a likable, smart-alecky lead in numerous kid-friendly films of the decade, including "Gremlins" (1984), "The Goonies" (1985), "Stand By Me" (1986) and "The Lost Boys" (1987). The latter film marked the beginning of a long and complex relationship, both on-screen and off, with fellow teen idol Corey Haim, whose fortunes, along with Feldman's, plunged headlong into obsolescence and drug abuse with the dawn of the 1990s. Unlike Haim, Feldman seemed to escape the maelstrom of his past by plugging along in B-pictures and television series, many of which poked fun at his personal and professional history. Feldman eventually achieved a sort of second career as himself - a former child star, with the scars to prove it - and attempted to boost Haim alongside him with the reality series, "The Two Coreys" (A&E, 2007-08). Feldman's status as childhood favorite for so many '80s-era teens, as well as his less-than-spectacular flameout and slow rise to normalcy, ensured him Hollywood immortality as one of the rare childhood stars lucky enough to survive such an ordeal intact.

Notes

In 1994, Feldman spoke out in defense of his long-time friend Michael Jackson when the latter was accused of child molestation. Feldman said that, as a young teen, he had played with and had sleep-overs with Jackson and nothing sexual had ever taken place.

"It did not feel like something that was going to take over my life and destroy it. It felt like a subtle little flower instead of a manipulative demon. That's the mystery of heroin." --Corey Feldman in USA Today, August 1, 1995.

"I don't do that whole jaded, Hollywood, pretentious thing. I'm somebody who I respect now." --Corey Feldman in USA Today, August 1, 1995.
