  • 'I was molested and passed around': Corey Feldman describes his ordeal at the hands of Hollywood

    The Daily Mail ^ | May 26, 2016 | CHRIS SPARGO
    Corey Feldman has shared shocking details about the rampant sexual abuse he and other young actors were forced to endure during their years in Hollywood. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Feldman discusses how he was repeatedly molested by adult males in the industry, saying these men would pass many young stars 'back and forth to each other.' He also reveals that his closest friend, Corey Haim, was raped when he was just 11 by a producer, the start of a long cycle of sexual abuse that Feldman believes led to his friend's problems with drugs and alcohol later...

    What's going on behind that shield? Understand this about the media’s pursuit of agendas: It’s often not so much how they cover stories, as it is which stories they choose to cover at all. Let a bunch of people on social media start using the hashtag #IndictHillary, and I seriously doubt it gets any attention. A bunch of people on social media wanting something is not a story.

    In an in-depth interview with THR, the 'Goonies' and 'Lost Boys' star opens up about his late best friend Corey Haim's rape by a producer at age 11, the pre-teen parties where predators stalked and groomed their marks and the "dark side" of his close pal Michael Jackson: "The man is gone. Let him rest in peace." A recent interview with Elijah Wood has reignited the conversation on pedophilia in the entertainment business. The Lord of the Rings star later clarified first to The Hollywood Reporter and then on his personal Twitter account that his comments about "something major ......

    Actor-comedian Alan Young, who played the amiable straight man to a talking horse in the 1960s sitcom “Mister Ed,” has died, a spokeswoman for the Motion Picture and Television Home said Friday. He was 96. The English-born, Canadian-educated Young died Thursday, according to Jaime Larkin, spokeswoman for the retirement community where Young had lived for four years. His children were with him when he died peacefully of natural causes, she said. Young was already a well-known radio and TV comedian, having starred in his own Emmy-winning variety show, when “Mister Ed” was being readied at comedian George Burns’ production company....

I swear this is the last Marvel film I will see as I never get anything out of them and whatever I say only sets the fans against me, which is not what you want at my age.

In fact, it might even be a really big twist for how the movie is going to handle the original story’s surprise ending—the real ending, that is....

Being in the media as my sister's story made headlines, and Woody Allen's PR engine revved into action, gave me a window into just how potent the pressure can be to take...

In an interview with Howard Stern this weekend, Downey Jr. said that Iron Man would cast his vote for Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton. “I believe Tony [Stark], being a budding feminist, he would say it’s time to have some feminine energy in the White House,” the actor told Stern on the shock jock’s popular Sirius XM radio show.

    Hollywood, typically regarded by those of us on the political right as a bastion of hedonistic leftists, has lately been flouting that stereotype. Still in theaters, Disney's The Jungle Book boasts subtle but articulate themes affirming human liberty and the value of capitalism. Dropping over the weekend from the related Marvel Studios, Captain America: Civil War likewise takes a firm philosophical stance in favor of choice over control. Its politics prove so prominent that they moved Salon writer Amanda Marcotte to denounce Captain America as "a douchey libertarian."Exploring the politics of the film will require delving into some particulars...

It’s impossible to watch “Money Monster,” which stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts and opens May 13, and not be reminded of the indeterminate rage of the Trump phenomenon. She’s eager to talk about “Money Monster,” in which Clooney plays Lee Gates, the swaggering, superficial star of a cable financial show who’s taken hostage by a young man, played by Jack O’Connell, whose savings have been wiped out by one of Gates’s stock tips.

    According to GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), Disney has a big fat “F” for LGBT representation in their movies – meaning, there haven’t been any gay characters in children’s movies in 2015.  However, since Disney announced there will be a Frozen 2 in the works for 2018, a few frustrated lesbian fans are trying to use the movie to feature an alternative romance for Queen Elsa, a gay character – or in this case – a different kind of “queen.” When a movie includes a song about how "love is an open door," the LGBT lobbyists will...

    IMMIGRATION REFORM THAT WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN The three core principles of Donald J.

    If you ever want to know what liberal Hollywood really thinks, just watch a Shonda Rhimes show. In about every other episode she has characters going off on thinly veiled, self-righteous liberal monologues. Tonight, ABC’s Scandal had two separate characters rant about "white men" and "country people." For those who aren’t unfamiliar with Scandal, GOP presidential primary candidate Hollis Doyle (Gregg Henry) is a character intended to spoof Donald Trump. The similarities in this particular show are endless: The opposing campaigns despair that “no matter what he does America loves him,” an ex-wife claims he raped her, he’s asked to...

    When you first wrap your head around its plot, the new film Captain America: Civil War seems to have abandoned most of the pointed political content of Marvel's 2006 comics series Civil War, on which it's based. ("Loosely based"? Let's say "semi-loosely based.") In the books, the conflict between Captain America and Iron Man is fundamentally about the Registration Act that would require superheroes to abandon their secret identities, be registered and tracked, and become government employees subject to oversight. The Act follows a tragic series of events that are not actually the fault of The Avengers; in a way...

Cruz supports the North Carolina measure, as I have and as I do,” Savage told his listeners.

However, the Quebec native is perhaps best known for running a convent of nuns in Puerto Rico on television. For three seasons, Sherwood portrayed Reverend Mother Superior Placido on The Flying Nun, the charming, quirky 1960s sitcom that sent Sally Field soaring to a new level of stardom.

    While Hollywood is known as a hotbed of liberalism, a small, but influential group of entertainment industry conservatives exist. The Hollywood Right, as it might be called, has noted that the California Primary is going to matter for the first time in decades. The group of conservative directors, writers, and actors are banding together to stop Donald Trump and make certain that Ted Cruz wins enough delegates in the last in the nation contest to stop the mercurial real estate tycoon from clinching the Republican nomination on the first ballot. The theory is that since delegates become unbound after the...

    The Friends of Abe has acted as a clandestine club for Hollywood conservatives for more than a decade, hosting secret events where they could vent rightwing views and hear speeches from visiting Tea Party luminaries.

It means that there is going to be a homosexual relationship in Episode VIII. Abrams said it was coming. It's the way of things now, it seems, that everything be charged with the LBGT agenda.

    “I’m a very spiritual person and I’m really open to learning,” the Catholic-born actress told The Sun on her conversion to Islam. Lohan, 29, who was spotted carrying a copy of the Koran while tending to her community service in New York last summer, also said there’s more to the text than what many people have been led to believe. And you can totally trust Lindsay when it comes to the Koran because it’s not like she’s walking around preaching about it without even reading the whole thing. Who does that? “I’m not done reading it. Do you know how...
