The Two Coreys (also known as The Coreys) are actors Corey Feldman (born 1971) and Corey Haim (1971–2010).

Feldman and Haim were child actors during the 1980s; the two were close friends.[1][2] The Two Coreys appeared in a total of nine films together, including The Lost Boys (1987).[3] Also, Feldman starred in Gremlins, The Goonies, Stand by Me, and Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, while Haim starred in Silver Bullet and Lucas.

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.

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.[6][7][8]
