Wiki Biography

Corey Ian Haim was born on 23 December 1971, in Toronto, Canada to an Israeli-born mother and a Canadian father, and died of pneumonia on 10 March 2010, in Burbank, California. Corey was an actor, perhaps best remembered as a 1980s teen idol from Hollywood movies, his most famous role probably being in “The Lost Boys” (1987), an American horror comedy film,   in which he played alongside Corey Feldman. Their mutual appearance turned out to be quite successful, so they later became 1980s icons and appeared together in seven movies as well as the American reality show “The Two Coreys”

Have you ever wondered how rich Corey Haim was before he died? According to sources, it has been estimated that at the time of his death, Corey Haims net worth was $5,000. He earned his net worth mostly through his prosperous acting career during the 1980s, although his engagement in a few successful movies during the 1990s, also added up to Corey’s net worth.

Corey Haim was raised in Toronto; his parents divorced when he was eleven. As a child, Haim was quite shy, and in order to overcome this problem, he started attending drama classes. While accompanying his sister to an audition, Corey accidentally got into the film industry, when he was given a part in “The Edison Twins”, a Canadian children’s television program aired from 1982 to 1986. Since he wasn’t too much interested in acting, he continued practicing other activities such as ice hockey, which eventually resulted in him being scouted for the AA Thunderbirds hockey team. Haim’s education at the North York’s Zion Heights Junior High lasted until 8th grade, by which time he had already started his career as a child actor.

His debut film role happened in the 1984 thriller “Firstborn” in which he starred with Sarah Jessica Parker and Robert Downey Jr. Corey’s minor roles in films “Secret Admirer” and “Murphy’s Romance” during the year 1985 eventually lead to the leading role in “Silver Bullet”, a film adaptation of Stephen King’s novella, which brought increased income to his net worth. The young actor then gained recognition for his role in the television movie “A Time To Live”(1985), in which he portrayed Liza Minnelli’s dying son. This earned him his first Young Artist Award. However, Haim’s true breakthrough role came a year later when he starred as a titular character in “Lucas”, beside Charlie Sheen and Winona Ryder, further adding to his net worth, and also earning him the nomination for an Exceptional Performance by a Young Actor in a Feature Film – Comedy or Drama at the Young Artist Awards.

In 1987, Corey starred in an American horror comedy film “The Lost Boys”, which was well received by most critics and regarded as an ’80s classic. His role in this film, secured Haims another Young Artist Award nomination, as Best Young Male Superstar in a Motion Picture. Some of his other notable appearances include his roles in the horror film “The Watchers” (1988), teen adventure film “License to Drive”, a romantic comedy “Dream a Little Dream” (1989), slapstick comedy film “Snowboard Academy” and many others. All added to his net worth.

Haim’s addiction to alcohol and drugs resulted in his poor social life, and probably explains his very modest net worth at the time of his death. He never married or had any children, and was said to be quite lonely. Corey first became addicted to alcohol and drugs at the age of 15, eventually resulting in early death at the age of 38.

1In early years, his mouth was mostly always open
1[on battle with drug abuse] It's one day at a time. It's one second at a time-it's really one millisecond at a time sometimes. But you gotta grind your teeth and bear it. There's no way to get around it. It's just time, effort and support-and you gotta reach out and ask for help
2[on his cameo in Crank: High Voltage (2009)] My first day of filming, I went in my camper for a minute, and I just started crying, because I was, like, home. And I'm just so grateful. It's a cameo. But, like, Ricky Schroder did a cameo in Crimson Tide (1995), and then boom! He got NYPD Blue.
3[on effects of molestation] It's something that will be addressed in my inner soul for the rest of my life, and it's something that truly affects me, and I opened up a can of worms, so to speak. Every day I opened up, like, a can of sardines. It's something I've addressed. Psychiatrists can be helpful. They have the medications and blah-blah-blah. But I don't want any of that, man. I've dealt with this, and I'm dealing with this-second by second, minute by minute, day by day. Everything's cool. It's just like, It happened, it's over, and move on. Let's move on to the next subject.
4This is where you make new friends and you start living and learning. So I'm a late bloomer, I'm 36, but hey, I'm learning. Every day's a learning experience, right?
5I want to be the guy they talk about when they talk about comebacks. I want people to learn from me, see I'm human, and understand that I make mistakes just like they do, but it doesn't have to consume you. You've got to walk through the raindrops, and that's totally what I am trying to do.
6I was working on The Lost Boys (1987) when I smoked my first joint. But a year before that, I was starting to drink beer on the set of the film Lucas (1986). I lived in Los Angeles in the '80s, which was not the best place to be. I did cocaine for about a year and a half, then it led to crack. I started on the downers which were a hell of a lot better than the uppers because I was a nervous wreck. But one led to two, two led to four, four led to eight, until at the end it was about 85 a day - the doctors could not believe I was taking that much. And that was just the valium - I'm not talking about the other pills I went through.
1Was in a relationship with Victoria Beckham in 1995, which ended on mutual terms.
2He was in a relationship with actress Alyssa Milano from 1987 to 1990.
3Haim was engaged to model Cindy Guyer in 2000. He proposed to Guyer two days after they met at a Chicago autograph show.
4Was offered the role of Charlie Fox in The Mosquito Coast (1986) and Chris Chambers in Stand by Me (1986). His father, who was acting as his manager at the time, turned down both in favor of Corey having a starring role in Lucas (1986). Both of those roles eventually went to the late River Phoenix.
5Back when he was a kid in Thornhill Ontario, Corey Haim used to break dance with the other kids at recess, in school.
6Best friend Corey Feldman chose not to attend Haim's funeral at the request of Haim's family, because they wanted to keep the funeral as low-key as possible. Feldman instead issued an open letter on the Internet which he wrote to his deceased friend.
7Was buried at Thornhill memorial chapel in Toronto on March 16th, 2010. Because Haim was broke at the time of his death, a celebrity memorabilia site that he sometimes sold items to, Startifacts, had donated $20,000 to cover the cost of the transportation and headstone. The check was subsequently canceled when it was found the funeral home was covering the cost already.
8Formerly engaged to actress Tiffany Shepis. [Oct. 30, 2008].
9He and Corey Feldman were known as the Two Coreys at the peak of their careers in the 1980s.
10He starred in eight movies with Corey Feldman: The Lost Boys (1987), License to Drive (1988), Dream a Little Dream (1989), Blown Away (1993), Last Resort (1994), Dream a Little Dream 2 (1995), Busted (1997) and Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008).
11Auditioned for the role of Dick Grayson/Robin in Batman Forever (1995).
12Ranked #26 on VH1's 100 Greatest Kid Stars.
13Bill Egert's character Sean Haim in the movie Detour (2002) was named after him, as Egert's favorite actor.
14Was engaged to Nicole Eggert, whom he credits with helping save his life on a certain occasion: while they were filming one of several movies together, she noticed that Haim was suffering from a narcotic "rush." Eggert promptly drove him to the local hospital where Corey was detoxed.
15Was asked by best friend and frequent co-star Corey Feldman - while filming the first season of The Surreal Life (2003) - to be his best man at his wedding to Susie Feldman; but unfortunately, due to prior commitments he was not able to attend.
16Brooke McCarter managed him up to the mid 1990s until Corey's drug problem caused a fallout.
17Was engaged to Holly Fields (not the boxer) in 1996, but broke up.
18In 2004, he became the subject of a single by the Irish band The Thrills titled "Whatever Happened To Corey Haim?".
19Filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July 1997 in Los Angeles, California, listing debts that included nearly $104,000 to the I.R.S., $100,000 in California taxes and a variety of medical expenses. The document stated that he had no bank account and very few assets, including a 1987 BMW, $100 in cash, $750 worth of clothing, and $7,500 in residuals and royalty rights. He also listed a $31,000 pension plan.
