Actor Corey Haim died this morning of an apparent overdose -- possibly accidental -- according to LAPD. He was 38.

Police tell us they were called to St. Joseph's hospital in Burbank, CA shortly before 4AM PT to investigate.

Haim shot to fame in the 80s -- when he co-starred in a number of films, including "The Lost Boys," with Corey Feldman
.


 I know stories have come out before about his death but this time it might be true.

Geez, that's sad to hear.  I guess this shouldn't be too shocking considering his years of problems, but it's still a little startling.  It's a shame he wasn't able to overcome his addictions.  RIP

LOS ANGELES - Corey Haim, a 1980s teen heartthrob whose career was blighted by drug abuse, has died. He was 38.

Haim died early Wednesday at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, Los Angeles County coroner's Lt. Cheryl MacWillie said.

"As he got out of bed, he felt a little weak and went down to the floor on his knees," Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said. His mother called paramedics.

An autopsy will determine Haim's cause of death. There was no evidence of foul play, police Sgt. Michael Kammert said.

Haim, who gained attention for his roles in "Lucas" and "The Lost Boys," had flulike symptoms before he died and was getting over-the-counter and prescription medications, police Sgt. William Mann said.

"He could have succumbed to whatever (illness) he had or it could have been drugs," Mann said. "He has had a drug problem in the past."

Haim was taken by ambulance to the hospital from an apartment in Los Angeles near Burbank.

Haim acknowledged his struggle with drug abuse to a British tabloid in 2004.

"I was working on 'Lost Boys' when I smoked my first joint," he told The Sun. "I did cocaine for about a year and a half, then it led to crack."

Haim said he went into rehabilitation and was put on prescription drugs. He took stimulants and sedatives.

"I started on the downers, which were a hell of a lot better than the uppers because I was a nervous wreck," he said.

In 2007, he told ABC's "Nightline" that drugs hurt his career.

"I wasn't functional enough to work for anybody, even myself. I wasn't working," he said.

The Toronto-born actor got his start in television commercials at 10 and developed a good reputation for his work in such films as 1985's "Murphy's Romance" and his portrayal of Liza Minelli's dying son in the 1985 television film "A Time to Live."

His career peaked when he became a heartthrob with his roles in the 1986 movie "Lucas" and "The Lost Boys" in 1987 in which he battled vampires.

In later years, he made a few TV appearances and had several direct-to-video movies. He also had a handful of recent movies that have not yet been released.

In 1997, Haim filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, listing debts for medical expenses and more than $200,000 in state and federal taxes.

His assets included a few thousand dollars in cash, clothing and royalty rights.

In recent years, he appeared in the A&E reality TV show "The Two Coreys" with his friend Corey Feldman. It was canceled in 2008 after two seasons. Feldman later said Haim's drug abuse strained their working and personal relationships.

In a 2007 interview on CNN's "Larry King Live," Haim called himself "a chronic relapser for the rest of my life."

wow... Oh wow...

I would like to feel sorry for him but I can't... He had it all woman/money/famous name (actually he could of pimp this for a long, long time... but he decided to do drugs.)

A reason why drugs is bad (including POT)

  Sad.  So many young stars seem to get into trouble with drugs at an early age.   :bluesad:

It is easy enough to do for many young actors.

Many of them have the money to purchase the drugs,

Many of them have people around them who will cater to their every whim, including drugs.

And many of them are under pressures, we cannot begin to understand, at an age, when they should not be under such pressures. Pressures which they deal with by taking drugs.

It's a sad story, really.  I read one report that said he was taking something like 90 pills a day or more, depending on the pill.  Which is obscene, really, considering the prices of some of them. :buggedout:

R.I.P. Corey Haim. Another piece of the 80s, early 90s dies. Cocaine and prescription drug addiction are harsh mistresses.

Very much so.  I've never mixed the two.  But sadly I've also had the mentality that Corey had to an extent, that of which: "It'll never happen to me."  Cocaine in and of itself is a hell of a drug to mess with.  Pills too, but with pills, it gets extremely expensive after a while, depending on what you're taking.

He's pretty p**sed off at the film industry.

And apparently nobody in Hollywood felt compelled to help out with the funeral expenses. Corey's at least lucky he had a couple of decent friends.
