9: CHILD STARS GONE WRONG: Corey Haim, The Brat Packers & Björn Andrésen

This week on Eavesdroppin’ comedy podcast, hosts Geordie & Michelle look at the sad lives of child stars…

Corey Haim was one of the biggest child stars of the 1980s. With hits like The Lost Boys and Licence to Drive, he and Corey Feldman, AKA The 2 Coreys, became the highest paid child actors of the decade. But drug addiction, poor movie choices and secret abuse saw Haim’s career fall apart just as fast as it gone ballistic. What happened to Corey Haim? How did his career nosedive so spectacularly? And why is Corey Feldman brining up his painful past? Listen now to find out!

Geordie looks at more child stars from the 80s, starting with The Brat Pack… Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy, Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson all were Hollywood’s brightest young things, but there was a dark side, too, like drugs, bulimia, sex tapes and more… On a steer from Eavesdropper Safka, Geordie looks at the most beautiful boy in the world – Björn Andrésen, the 70s Swedish child star of cult film Death In Venice. How did being a child star mess him up? Was he failed by director Luchiano Visconti? And where is he now? Listen to know more!
