Corey Feldman book about Hollywood's 'dark truths'

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Corey Feldman was one of the best-known child actors in the 1980s having starred in "The Lost Boys," "The Goonies," "License to Drive" and "Stand by Me."

But despite his early success, Feldman says all that glitters is not gold in Tinseltown.

Feldman has discussed past sexual abuse at the hands of a Hollywood heavy weight. He goes into further detail about the allegations in his new memoir, "Coreyography."

In the book, Feldman also talks about the sexual abuse of the late Corey Haim who was his good friend and fellow child star.

"We had a deal in place that we don't talk about that but he brought it up. It got quickly silenced because he didn't have the strength to tell it," said Feldman.

Haim struggled with drug addiction and later died from pneumonia. He was afraid to talk in detail about his past sexual abuse, according to Feldman.

"Corey asked me to tell his story a year before he died," said Feldman.

The actor and musician is signing copies of his new book, 'Coreyography,' on Wed., Oct. 30 at Strand Bookstore.
