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.
