Corey Feldman speaks out on the loss of Corey Haim Fans, family, and friends alike lost a cherished personality in former teen icon Corey Haim, who died of an alleged prescription drug overdose earlier today. The actor, who made his big screen debut in the 1984 thriller First Born became quite popular in the 1980s, starring in a string of hit films that are now considered classics. During that run, he often teamed up with fellow actor Corey Feldman, and the two became inseparable both on and off the screen. They appeared as a comedy duo in The Lost Boys, License to Drive, and Dream a Little Dream, as well the recent A&E reality program The Two Coreys. Despite a falling out after the end of season two, Feldman and Haim had reconciled their differences at the time of Michael Jackson's death, who happened to be another close friend of Feldman's that had passed away.

Today, Corey Feldman, courtesy of his own personal blog released this statement about his one-time acting partner and best friend:

I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother Corey Haim. My eyes weren't even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face. I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful, beautiful, tormented soul, who will always be my brother, family, and best friend. We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived. ~ Corey

The Lost Boys was released July 31st, 1987.

License to Drive was released July 6th, 1988.

            Have some respect, dude. I'm sure if someone close to you passed away, you probably wouldn't want to hear/read: "Who cares? One less (insert title here) in the world."

              I will watch Lost Boys now in your honor.

              My respects and wishes to your family and loved ones, Mr. Haim.
