Where are they now: Corey Haim


 When I was a kid, I was totally in love with the actor Corey Haim. He was so cute and adorable and even more so with his braces. Imagine my sadness when he passed away. I was heartbroken... even though I'd not really seen much of him since his childhood days, when he featured in lots of super cute movies. My favourite, of course, was The Lost Boys, one of the best vampire movies ever made. It also had the smoking hot Jason Patric who played his older brother, and probably the sexiest looking vampire in town, Kiefer Sutherland.
Another of his movies which I adored was called Lucas, and was about a boy who loves a girl who loves someone else. It also featured Charlie Sheen and Winona Ryder. Every time I hear a locust, or see them on TV, I'm reminded of Corey. If you've seen the movie, you'll know what I mean!
Before Corey died, it was reported in the press that he had become a drug addict at 15, something that seems to happen a lot to child stars, which is heart breaking. Apparently, he entered rehab 15 times throughout his short life.
In 2007, he starred alongside his childhood buddy, Corey Feldman, in a reality show aptly named The Two Coreys. However, Corey Haim relapsed and his friendship with Feldman deteriorated. But they did reconcile before Haim died of pneumonia in 2010, aged just 38 years old.
