Corey Haim and Corey Feldman
We know, this is technically two, but bear with us: Corey Haim and Corey Feldman were intertwined for a generation. First appearing together in 1987’s The Lost Boys, Hollywood and the movie-going public took an immediate liking to the duo. Studios responded by tying the two together in forgettable flicks, such as License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream. As with most teen idols, the two Coreys soon lost their appeal, youth, and fortunes.Times were unkind to Haim and Feldman, both of whom struggled financially and personally post-1980s. In desperation, the Coreys re-teamed in the 2000s for a reality show and very briefly in a straight-to-video sequel to The Lost Boys. Neither project amounted to a comeback, with Feldman’s marriage falling apart in 2009 and Haim dying from an apparent drug overdose in 2010. Together, they represented the worst-case scenario of the troubled child-star.
