Corey Fieldman on Corey Haim
March 11, 2010 2:04pm CST
Hey guys I only saw bits and pieces on the news last night but Corey Fieldman was on Larry King last night was wondering if anyone saw it. The one comment that struck me as a what are you talking about it this. Corey is now on his high horse and claiming that he was best friends with Corey Haim and was wondering where all these people who are expressing their well wishes to his family were when Corey Haim was doing drugs. Well Corey F I have to ask you the same question. We know the both of you were doing drugs. According to your own reality show The Two Coreys there were times when you two weren't even speaking. So why now are you on tv acting like you were always around and trying to support Corey Haim.I am sorry to hear about a death and I don't know all that was going on. I am not sure if people were trying to get Corey H help. If someone is not ready to go to treatment it will never be successful.Watch Intervetion on A& E and you will see what these families go through. I just found it odd he is all on a high horse and now saying how they are still best friends. Wanted to know if someone saw the whole episode and what your thoughts were. I am only going on a few clips the news showed. It just seemed to have a attitude about it. I am sure he wasn't the only one who tried to help.

I'll have to go back and look at the transcript of the Larry King show, I hadn't actually seen the interview, only a little part on youtube, but I did read most of what he said. Thing is, I think they met when they were 13 or 14, around the time Haim got the role for Lucas and Feldman got the role for Goonies. When you've known someone for more than half of your life, you kind of figure out when to say something - and when to stop being involved. I think it was more than a friendship, consider it something like how much you care for a family member, but there's only so much you can do when that person is determined to destroy themselves. When the goal of your own life turns into saving someone else, it's time for a reality check. Here's a little of what he said: "Where were all these people the last 10 years, the last 15 years, of Corey's life," Feldman, 38, asked. "Where were all these people to lend a handout, to reach out to him and say, you're a legend, you're an amazingly talented wonderful person who's never really gone out of his way to hurt anyone, other than himself?" "In this entertainment industry, in Hollywood, we build people up as children, we put them on pedestals, and then, when we decide they're not marketable anymore, we walk away from them," he added. "Then we taunt them and we tease them … It's okay for society as a whole to poke fun at, to point fingers at, us as human beings. Why is it okay to kick somebody when they're down? I don't think it should be tolerated anymore."

Another site that I looked at talked about his last movie, American Sunset. A paragraph on the site stated that Corey spent a lot of time on the set - because he just wanted to be around people. It sounded like working made him happy, worrying about his mom was probably taking a toll, as well as trying to stay clean....
