It’s not breaking news that a staggering amount of money, power, and fame at a very young age can cause child stars to feel invincible and, as a result, make some not-so-good decisions.
We’ve seen it happen with promising young talents like Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, Justin Bieber and—most recently—Shia La Boeuf, who’s been making headlines for some very disturbing behavior.
His best-known role was alongside Corey Feldman in The Lost Boys, which made Haim a household name.
Then everything goes black.” Later that week, she taunts him further.In one especially sad aside, he reflects on a picture he took at his 15th birthday party and notes that in the photo, he and Haim were flanked by five of them. Being with Michael brought me back to my innocence.Both were young Jewish actors who often competed for the same roles.
