Corey Feldman on being a child actor: "I didn't choose this life...It was chosen for me"

On Monday evening Piers Morgan invited Hollywood veteran Corey Feldman to join him for a live, primetime interview that touched upon everything from drugs and alcohol, to fame, abuse, and the late Michael Jackson.

Well known for his work in such classics as "Stand by Me," "The Goonies," and "The Lost Boys," the 42-year-old former child star spoke openly about growing up in front of the camera:

"My story in and of itself is very tragic," he began. "I did have a very, very rough upbringing. I endured a lot of pain in my childhood. I didn't choose this life. It was chosen for me."

The author of the book "Coreyography" told the "Piers Morgan Live" host that his life could be compared to "child slavery or being born into royalty," but a quarter and a half century since earning the Young Artist Award for Best Young Actor in a Horror Motion Picture, Feldman feels disrespected by the industry:

"We are being asked to be erased from history...they're basically being asked to erase our legacy, everything we achieved."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Corey Feldman as he remembers his friend Corey Haim, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Corey, if it makes you feel any better, your movies have made my world a better place. No matter how bad I'm feeling, watching you on the Goonies makes me happy. I'm sorry you were mistreated, but know your time in showbiz has been a positive thing for the world.Not all people can say that.



    P.S. I'm going to buy your book ASAP.

    I was just looking for this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your website. I wonder what's the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this kind of informative websites in top of the list. Usually the top websites are full of garbage.
