The Two Coreys (also known as The Coreys) refer to American actor Corey Feldman (born 1971) and Canadian actor Corey Haim (1971–2010), who were often paired.

Feldman and Haim were child actors during the 1980s; the two were close friends. Both of them grew up in Jewish families.[1][2] The Two Coreys appeared in a total of nine films together, including The Lost Boys (1987).[3]

Becoming a brand, The Two Coreys achieved mainstream fame and notoriety as teen idols, but each later experienced a career downturn due to drug use.[4]

The Two Coreys, a reality show about the two actors, aired on the A&E Network from 2007 to 2008.[5]

Following a long battle with drug addiction, Haim died of pneumonia in 2010.[6]

In 2020, Feldman released My Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys. The documentary explores the friendship between The Two Coreys and asserts that both were sexually abused as children in the entertainment industry.[7][8][9]
