Video - Corey Feldman Says Pedophilia Rampant in Hollywood - Admits He Was Abused as a Child Actor

Actor Corey Feldman gave some disturbing statements to ABC’s Nightline earlier this week about his life as a child actor and the pitfalls he encountered.

Feldman says pedophilia is the number one problem in Hollywood today, and was the number one problem when he was a child actor.

Feldman, who rose to fame with fellow actor Corey Haim, told Nightline that he himself was abused as a child.

He also believes that his friend Corey Haims death was partly due to abuse received as a child at the hands of a big Hollywood mogul.

"I was surrounded by pedophiles when I was 14 years old. I didn’t even know it. It wasn't until I was old enough to realize what they were and what they wanted … till I went, Oh my God. They were everywhere."

While not naming any names, some have speculated that the time spent with Michael Jackson may have had some influence over Feldman and Haim when they were young.

Earlier this year, Corey told reporters that Jackson had given him wine and offered him cocaine during a sleepover while visiting the Neverland Ranch. The story was quickly denied but none the less – it was out there.

Feldman starting doing TV commercials when he was just three years old, and became a teen idol while starring in made for TV movies and big budget Hollywood films.

On television he appeared in “Eight is Enough”, ‘The Bad News Bears”, “Mork and Mindy”, “The Love Boat”, “Cheers”, “The New Leave it to Beaver”, “One Day at a Time”, and “Family Ties”.

Feldman then hit the big screen with the movies “Gremlins”, “Friday the 13th”, “The Goonies”, “Stand by Me”, “The Lost Boys”, “License to Drive”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, and “Meatballs”

Corey can be seen this October in the horror thriller “Zombex”, a story about a post-Katrina New Orleans as it deals with a new disaster - a zombie apocalypse created by a drug invented by a rouge mad scientist that turns people into zombies.

Corey also has a modest music career and was just featured in Katy Perry’s music video “Last Friday Night”.
