Corey Feldman Backs Up Elijah Wood Hollywood Pedophilia Claims, Says He Wants To Name Names

Earlier in the week, Elijah Wood made headlines when he opened up about the worst kept secret in Hollywood, which he says is the pedophilia that goes on in the industry with child actors. As a child actor, Wood has a very specific view of the entertainment business, and although he hasn’t accused anyone of sexually abusing him, he did admit that there are kids who were abused.

Child actor Corey Feldman, who saw major fame in the 80s, with movies like, The Goonies, Stand By Me, and The Lost Boys, claims that he’s one of those kids, and has since backed up claims made by Elijah Wood. Feldman agreed that the abuse is widespread and precisely orchestrated to protect certain individuals.

Feldman even went on to say that he would love to name names of the abusers in Hollywood.

Feldman’s frequent co-star and good friend Corey Haim, who died of the lasting effects of drug abuse, couldn’t escape the abuse, and was allegedly raped on a Hollywood set when he was 11-years-old.

Of Haim’s abuse he said the following.

“He had more direct abuse than I did. With me, there were some molestations and it did come from several hands, so to speak, but with Corey, his was direct rape, whereas mine was not actual rape. And his also occurred when he was 11.”

When asked to name names Feldman said he couldn’t because of the law.

“Unfortunately California conveniently enough has a statute of limitations that prevents that from happening. Because if I were to go and mention anybody’s name I would be the one that would be in legal problems and I’m the one that would be sued.”

Elijah Wood had said that he was able to escape predators because his mother didn’t let him attend any Hollywood parties, but for Feldman, he wasn’t protected in that way.

“Part of the time I was living with my mom and she was letting me go to the parties. And then the other part of the time was with my dad and those people were actually coming over to my apartment.”

In Wood’s original interview, it was intended to be a conversation about his new film The Trust, but turned to the “evil secret” of Hollywood, as the title says. Wood had compared the most infamous scandal of Jimmy Savile, who had abused 400 girls and boys, to what’s going on in Hollywood.

“Jesus, it must have been devastating. Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organized. There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind. There is darkness in the underbelly. If you can imagine it, it’s probably happened.”

After the interview ran from outlet to outlet, Wood took to Twitter to defend his comments.
