Corey Feldman’s highly anticipated documentary finally spelled out who the Weinstein’s in the world of child actors are. And the list is pretty shocking.
First up is actor Charlie Sheen. Of course, Sheen adamantly denied the claims when they first surfaced in 2017. But as of today, he’s made no recent comment on the matter. Perhaps because this is the first time such details were given.
According to the Daily Mail:
In the documentary, [Feldman] alleges that Haim – who died aged 38 in 2010 – told him that Sheen raped him when they were making the 1986 Steven Spielberg film Lucas. At the time, Haim was 13 years old and Sheen was 19.
Feldman cried as he recounted what Haim had said.
‘This wasn’t like a one time thing he said in passing. It wasn’t like “Oh, by the way, this happened.” He went into great detail,’ Feldman said.
‘He told me: “Charlie bent me over in between two trailers and put Crisco oil on my butt and raped me in broad daylight. Anybody could have walked by, anybody could have seen it.”‘
Sadly, this story is said to have circulated in Hollywood for years. But no ramifications ever stemmed from Haim’s accusations.
Rolling Stone adds:
The allegations against Sheen, however, are supported in the documentary by Feldman’s ex-wife, Susie Sprague (who appeared in The Two Coreys), and Jamison Newlander, an actor who grew close to Feldman and Haim after co-starring with them in the 1987’s The Lost Boys. Both say Haim had revealed the alleged rape to them, and suggest that it was common knowledge in Hollywood circles but ultimately ignored.
Sheen has a rich film history, starring in Platoon, Wall Street, Lucas, Goonies, Major League, Young Guns and Hot Shots. In fact, I think half the girls I grew up with sported posters of Sheen on their walls.
Sheen later starred in Two and a Half Men, where he racked up numerous Emmy Awards and Golden Globe nominations. In fact, the show made Sheen the highest paid TV actor, at $1.8M per episode. Clearly, Sheen lived the life of a well-loved star. Even after his stints in rehab started.
Back in 1990, Sheen went to rehab for the first time. That same year, he accidentally shot his fiance, Kelly Preston. No shock that she called off the engagement shortly thereafter. Still, Sheen’s managed to be married three times. And let’s not forget his role as “star witness” for the trial of Heidi Fleiss, Hollywood’s Famous black-book Madame.
Several women, including second wife Denise Richards, accused Sheen of severe physical and emotional abuse. He’s faced multiple restraining orders. And in 1998, Sheen suffered a stroke after a cocaine binge. When you put together his violent outbursts, drug usage, and internal rage, is rape so unbelievable? Or could it possibly be the catalyst of his troubled life?
Of course, Sheen isn’t the only name Feldman named.
The Daily Caller continues:
In the film Feldman also named three men who he has previously accused of abusing him: Jon Grissom, nightclub owner Alphy Hoffman and former talent manager Marty Weiss.
Grissom, who had a small role in License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream starring Feldman and Haim, previously denied the allegations in a YouTube comment, according to Page Six.
‘I said it’s not me I’m sick and tired of saying that when no one listens. So goddamnit I’m not repeating it anymore,’ he is quoted as writing.
Weiss denied the claim against him on Twitter last month, writing: ‘Corey Haim would never grandstand sex abuse for profit nor would he have thrown innocent names around due to personal vendettas.
‘The fact that Feldman uses me to convince ppl that CH was a sex fiend is horrific and exposes both his jealousy of Haim & CF’s friendship with me.’
Hoffman has not publicly addressed the allegations since Feldman first named him on The Dr Oz Show in 2017.
Of course, last night’s premiere wasn’t without drama.
After three years of promoting his film, things didn’t roll out smoothly.
It was set up to debut via livestream, but viewers got black screens instead. And they took to Twitter in a rampage.
Daily Mail adds:
Feldman, who was screening the documentary from the Directors Guild of America Los Angeles, responded to the complaints by tweeting: ‘THE FILM IS STARTING 15 MIN LATE DUE 2 THE WEBSITE CRASHING! WHICH IS ACTUALLY A GOOD THING!’
The site errors persisted to the point that Feldman chose to abandon the livestream and just show the film to those in the theater.
About 20 minutes later he stopped the film and told attendees that the site was under attack from ‘hackers’ who wanted to prevent the world from seeing it.
‘You’re seeing it for yourself how people don’t want this to happen,’ Feldman is quoted as saying in the theater.
After the film finished Feldman announced that the scheduled Q&A had been cancelled because the moderator pulled out last minute.
He later told Fox News he would look into alternative methods to allow for those who paid for the livestream to see the film.
‘I hope [the film] gives other victims the strength to come forward. Because there’s gotta be a tidal wave right now. We need a tidal wave of justice. And we need a tidal wave of truth. We need a tidal wave of courage,’ he said.
‘The truth must survive. Children must be saved.’
