Eighties child actor Corey Feldman blames his parents for pushing him into showbiz - and still refuses to speak to them.

After shooting to fame with starring roles in eighties films The Goonies, STAND BY ME and The Lost Boys bratpacker Corey self-destructed and was addicted to heroin by the time he was 17.

Feldman, now 32, blamed his parents for pushing him into showbiz so young - he started in the movie industry at the age of three. He 'divorced' them while still a teenager and is still not on speaking terms with his dad, musician BOB and his mum SHEILA.

He says, "I don't talk to my parents at all. It was all their idea. I liked it at the time. It became a mainstay instead of just a hobby."
