Paedophiles in Hollywood?

Quote:
"I can tell you that the number one problem in Hollywood was, and is, and always will be paedophilia. That's the biggest problem for children in this industry... it's all done under the radar. It's the big secret," Feldman said.

"There are so many people in this industry who have gotten away with it for so long that they feel they're about the law. And that's got to change, that's got to stop."

Feldman also blamed Haim's death on the lifelong trauma he experienced as a result of the abuse, adding: "There is one person to blame in the death of Corey Haim, and that person happens to be a Hollywood mogul - and that person needs to be exposed but unfortunately I can't be the one to do it."

Truly shocking accusations, but ones that will ultimately be dismissed as the bitter lies of a desperate has been.

If these accusations do have an element of truth, what a shame it is that an individual would only be willing to blow the whistle once it becomes apparent that their career is over.

I doubt anyone is shocked to hear that there are those involved I'm the film business who prey on children, there are numerous documented cases of it. Victor Salva who directed the Jeepers Creepers films served time for sexually abusing the 12 year old star of his film Clownhouse. He went so far as to record it, served less than 3 years and while it took a decade for his career to recover it's now flourishing.

Look at the entire Polanski debacle last year with so many A listers coming to his defence, I think it was Whoopi Goldberg who said that it wasn't even "rape rape". Very few people were willing to speak out against Polanski, Luc Besson being one of the few who repeatedly refused to sign the petition to free Polanski or defend his actions.

Its hardly a surprise, like the Church and modelling its an ideal environment for sex with the under-aged regardless of the motivation.

Good question. IF he has information he should do something.

Watched the video interview. Wow - he comes across as extremely sincere in it. I have no reason to doubt his words.

Agreed. Came across as such a tragic figure.

Hollywood, with it's wink and nod 'rub my back and I'll rub yours' culture from top to bottom is a perfect playground for paedophiles. Sickening.

It sounds plausible enough but I wouldn't let apparent sincerety sway judgement yet, it's a pretty big allegation and one that needs to be proven beyond doubt.

Interestingly, in the "Godfather", the movie producer who ended up with the horses head in his bed was abusing a 12 year old wannabe starlet.
