The biggest problem in Hollywood is pedophilia is the shocking claim by a former child star.

Corey Feldman, who starred in "Lost Boys" and "Goonies," said in an interview with The Guardian that he was molested as a young actor and claims he’s hardly alone, as pedophilia is rampant in the entertainment industry.

Feldman says he and fellow child star Corey Haim, who died in 2010 at age 38 from pneumonia, were both sexually abused by film industry adults who should have been keeping them safe.  

As a result, they fell into a world of addiction while trying to come to grips with what had happened.

Former child actor Alison Arngrim has said the abuse was of the two Coreys was widely known. "I literally heard that they were ‘passed around,'" Arngrim is quoted as saying in a 2011 Fox News report. "The word was that they were given drugs and being used for sex."

In 1986, while filming "Lucas," Haim was raped by "a major Hollywood figure," Feldman said. "He made me promise before he died that I would get the truth out." 

Feldman said he has been trying to expose the figures who molested him and Haim in his long-awaited documentary provisionally titled "Truth: The Rape of the Two Coreys," but has been battling to get the film out. 

"Nobody wants to go after the bad guys," Feldman said. "What the hell is really going on here?"  

What infuriates Feldman is that, while the #MeToo movement highlighted the sexual assault of countless women within the industry, his own accusations have been ignored. 

"They go to the SAG [Screen Actors Guild] awards and they get all dressed in black and they honor Patricia Arquette. But why was I not invited?" he asked.  

In a previous interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Feldman expressed frustration due to the California statute of limitations preventing him from naming any of his abusers.  

"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," he said. 

At issue is that these sexual predators "have more direct and inappropriate connection with children" than anywhere else in the world. 

"The people that I knew doing (the molesting) were publicists, they were photographers for teen magazines, things like that," Feldman explained. And that, he said, is how kids ended up in the wrong hands.
