Corey Feldman recently came out with a horrifying memoir of his days as a childhood star in his book “Coreyography.”  He told Nightline in a latest interview the following:

“The number one problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia,” and the “casting couch” exists for children, too.

Rumors of a casting couch have always surrounded Hollywood, but what about the rest of Hollywood?  Let’s put actors aside, and take a close look at what’s also going on behind the scenes. Hollywood is predominately male.  I worked in the agency business over a decade ago and recall hearing about the “pink line.” 

The pink line consists of young assistants to agents, manager, studio heads, executives and producers that are more or less pimped out by their established bosses to prominant industry individuals that are in the closet about their homoerotic sexual fantasies, and, as a result, the young male “pinks” are exploited.  Oftentimes pinks are promised better job opportunities and access to people they wouldn’t normally be affiliated with in hopes of getting their foot in the door but instead, end up on the couch.   The problem is Hollywood is also notorious for ruining careers of anyone that stands up to sexual harassment, verbal, emotion, and or mental abuse.  Unfortunately, fear of losing your chance of a flourishing career often times results in silence.

So, going back to Feldman, he isn’t at the top of anyone’s A list of actors and, chances are, he won’t be anytime soon.
