Former child actor Corey Feldman (Stand By Me, The Goonies, Gremlins) exposes child abuse in Hollywood and blames the death of his friend, fellow former child actor Corey Haim (The Lost Boys), on a well-known Hollywood mogul whose name he can't disclose.
Former child actress Allison Angrim (Little House on the Prairie), also a victim of abuse and now a board member and national spokeswoman for protect.org, an organization that works to protect children from abuse, says greed in Hollywood allows sexual predators to flourish. “Nobody wants to stop the gravy train,” says Arngrim. “If a child actor is being sexually abused by someone on the show, is the family, agents or managers – the people who are getting money out of this – going to say, ‘OK, let’s press charges’? No, because it’s going to bring the whole show to a grinding halt, and stop all the checks. So, the pressure is there is not to say anything.”
Former child actor Paul Peterson (The Donna Reed Show): “It’s almost a willing sacrifice that many parents are oblivious to – what kind of environment do they think that they’re pushing their kid into? The casting couch is a real thing, and sometimes just getting an appointment makes people do desperate things.”
