this is a tragic death that could've been avoided. had his so called friends stepped up to the plate.(feldman) you may remember haim from movies like- the lost boys. he was a great one that hollywood and his friends let down big time. the world gets darker everyday. why must it always be an overdose with actors. why not jump out of a plane with no chute. i for one will miss his acting very much.
feldman and haim did a tv show together and feldman kicked haim out because his pretty wife didn't like him. haim was in tears leaving. i know that cut him deep. i felt for the guy and still do even though he's gone.
Haim was a train wreck who couldn't deal with the fact that he was no longer a teenage heartthrob. He mooched off his friends until they couldn't put up with him anymore. They tried to get him to admit he had a problem, but he was in denial. This is what Hollywood does to people.
It's a shame but not a surprise. Heath Ledger was a surprise, Corey Haim was expected. I liked Haim and hoped he would make a sober comeback but I pretty much knew he couldn't after his behavior when filming the Lost Boys 2... He messed up so badly there that they only put him in the closing credits scene.
I had a huge school-girl crush on him as a kid. While I didn't find it shocking, considering his history of drug abuse, I still find it sad. His addiction started when he was just a kid, and he was never able to beat it.
