Corey Feldman to talk child sex abuse in live Today interview
Corey Feldman, who recently declared he’s preparing to identify child sex abusers in Hollywood, is going to sit down for a live interview on NBC’s Today show.
The actor will chat with Matt Lauer on Monday, Oct. 30. In an unusual move, the actor will then have a second sit-down, this time with Megyn Kelly.
The contents of the interview are said to be about “sexual abuse in Hollywood and his experiences as a child.”
In a YouTube video posted Wednesday that has since been viewed more than 700,000 times, Feldman declared he’s ready to identify at least six alleged abusers — including one who remains in power today.
The Stand By Me and The Goonies star has previously called pedophilia Hollywood’s “big secret” and has said that he was molested. He’s also said that he fears revealing the abusers will put his life in jeopardy.
Feldman has stated he would like to make a film about child sex abuse in Hollywood and is trying to raise $10 million for the project in online fundraising. It’s unclear if Feldman is actually going to name names on Today or just talk in general terms about his experiences.
Earlier this month, Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek similarly said he was the victim of sexual harassment by “older, powerful men” when “I was much younger.”
