Actor, Corey Haim was found dead in Burbank, California at age 38. Haim and fellow actor Corey Feldman were often paired together in the films and teen magazines of the ’80s and co-starred together in “The Lost Boys,” “License to Drive,” “Dream A Little Dream” and “Dream A Little Dream 2”. The pair became known as “The Two Coreys” – a life-long friendship that turned into an A&E reality series of the same name.
Today, Corey Feldman posted a message on his personal blog entitled “R.I.P. COREY IAN HAIM 1971-2009” in which he stated,
I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother Corey Haim. My eyes weren’t even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face. I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful,beautiful,tormented soul, who will always be my brother,family, and best friend. We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived. ~ Corey
Many celebrities took to twitter to remember Corey, here are a few of their tweets –
Alyssa Milano: “Just woke up to the sad, sad news that Corey Haim passed away. RIP sweet boy.”
Christina Applegate: “My thoughts go out to Corey’s family and friends today. So sad.”
Ashton Kutcher: “Rip Corey Haim ‘Childhood hero.'”
Ralph Macchio: “Always so sad and disturbing when the addiction and demons prevail. RIP Corey Haim.”
Melissa Joan Hart:“No way! I just saw him last week at a Lupus event!”
Adrianne Curry: “Corey Haim died. That is what happens when you can’t grow up and kick the habit. Sadly, most who start, don’t stop. A waste of beautiful life.”
No offense to anyone else’s tweets but, I think Kevin Smith and Soleil Moon Frye probably said it best –
Kevin Smith: “Lost Boy goes home: Corey Haim, dead at 38. G’bye, LUCAS. You gave hope to the weird & unlikely.”
Soleil Moon Frye (‘Punky Brewster’): “RIP Corey Haim. Nobody made listening to 80’s music back in the day look so good… Save a dance for me up there.”
On behalf of everyone here at SciFi Mafia (contributors and readers alike), I would like to extend our sympathies to all of Corey Haim’s family and friends. Anyone who grew up alongside the Corey’s will Dream a little dream for one of their Lost Boys tonight.
