Actor Corey Feldman shocked the media back in 2013 when he initially referenced the sexual abuse he reportedly was victim to back when he was a young actor, but it appears that won’t be the only instance Feldman addresses his past.
In his new documentary titled ‘(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys,’ Feldman plans to candidly address the issue by referencing his abusers by name, something he did not do when initially bringing the issue to light back when he released his memoir.
Beyond his own abusers, Feldman also reportedly plans to name those who abused his frequent co star, Corey Haim. Haim died of pneumonia back in 2010, and didn’t ever personally address the issue to the extent that Feldman plans to.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Feldman spoke candidly about the forthcoming information reveal.
“The last two years have been insurmountable, but I believe that with great risk comes great reward,” the actor said in reference to the time it has taken to compile the information needed for this project.
“And I believe the reward in all of this, if nothing else, will be that these guys are finally exposed. I’m hoping that what happened to [Harvey] Weinstein [will happen], that multiple victims will come forward. And as a result, these guys will finally get indictments and we can put them out of business,” Feldman continued.
Feldman is an active participant in the #KidsToo movement, which brings attention to childhood sexual abuse situations that may have not been given attention otherwise.
“And we’re hoping it kind of clears the pathway for more justice and for more voices to be heard, because this is really about enabling the voice of the survivor and empowering the survivor and turning the tables. All of these years, it’s been about protecting the bad guys, and that’s the way the laws were written, unfortunately,” the actor said, elaborating on what the organization he is highly involved with is doing in the realm of childhood sexual abuse.
“This law sets me up for the opportunity to go after these guys, but it also sets up anybody else who has been a victim of sexual assault from any abuser in the state of California in the last 50 years. I watched what happened with the other cases, obviously I’ve been following everything very closely.”
“What we did is line up several witnesses who had all heard firsthand from the victim himself,” Feldman said. “We think we’ve done a really good job of being even-handed in showing what the argument is and what both sides have to say, but also showing the weaknesses in their argument.”
