9:14 pm
tmz outlets where it is acceptable in society, it is okay for society as a whole to poke fun at, to point finger at, to laugh at us as human beings. why is it okay to kick somebody when they're down? i don't think it is. i don't think it should be tolerated anymore. i don't think it should be accepted anymore within our society, within the entertainment industry, within the world as a whole. >> larry: did he feel that way? >> very much felt that way. he had nobody to turn to. i was one of the few people left in his life. you see people making great staples and i hope they were there for the funeral and memorial, but where were they during his life? that is something everybody in this society needs to hold themselves accountable for. we need to think about every time we laugh at somebody the the tabloids or poke a finger and say they are a joke, they are fat, they are a drug addict,
9:15 pm
they are a loser, we need to look at ourselves and say who am i? >> larry: tell us about him. no one knew him better. what was he like? >> he was great. >> larry: was he funny? >> he was very funny. tremendously funny. >> larry: he was a good guest. >> he is the only person in my life that could make me laugh. we would get into it. just three weeks ago i sat at his apartment with him and we were talking about my divorce, of all things. sorry. he was talking about my ex-wife and i was talking about her and we started talking about wouldn't this be a great idea to have a third season of the two coreys. we could have you move back in with me and now my wife is out and you are in and everybody wanted to see us living together in a house. we riffed on it for an hour to the point we were rolling around on the floor laughing.

was with her every day getting the chemotherapy and radiation. i picked them both up from the hospital and droef them back to their apartment because he didn't have a car. it was the first time in my life i had seen corey be that responsible, standup guy for somebody else. >> larry: did he have brothers and sisters? >> a sister and a little brother. >> larry: he wasn't close with them? >> the little brother was a half brother because after the divorce his father remarried. >> larry: you called him a tormented soul. what led to the torment? why was that kind of talent tormented? sfwhichlt because that talent was no longer allowed to express himself. his talent didn't go anything. >> larry: was he his own enemy? >> he was his own enemy. look, a lot of people who are artists tend to be their worst enemy because we are passionate people. we can't help it. it is why we are who we are and
9:21 pm
why we are and how we are. with that said, if we had the outlet to express our artistic integrity to put forth our passions, if we still have our platform with are able to dispel built up energy. corey is a guy, granted, burned a lot of bridges in the industry. he made a lot of mistakes. i took 20 years of rebuilding to get to the point where people take me seriously. corey made a lot of mistakes for many years longer than i did. it took him a lot longer to get to the point of recognition. however, once he got there nobody was left to pull him back up. >> larry: do you know about the funeral plans. >> so far there is nothing set in stone. we can't start to plan a funeral until we have the toxicology reports back. >> larry: there's automatically an autopsy? >> of course. we do want to plan a sizable memorial. i would like to see people in

9:23 pm
is that a style? >> it's the strand. >> larry: i'm get used to it. >> thank you. thank you. it is not to make a fashion statement. it is a personal thing. i went through a hard year. i lost michael, i lost my grandfather. >> larry: michael jackson. >> michael jackson. >> i ended up going off after my divorce and doing "lost boys 3" in africa. i was there as a rebel, a lone soldier. this was the mark of the soldier in the movie. >> larry: how are we going to best remember corey haim? >> hopefully he is going be remembered as a beautiful, funny enigmatic character who brought nothing but life and light and entertainment and art to all of our lives. >> larry: i thank you for coming. i know this was hard. we appreciate you coming here. >> thank you, larry. thank you for doing him justice.

9:28 pm
saw i had a lot of missed calls from julia, corey's mom. so i immediately called her and i got the news. she was trying to call me the whole night and i had my phone on vibrate. >> larry: you raised the possibility, mark, that corey's death could have been drug related. that is a speculation. you base that on what? >> i don't know if corey's -- i'm hoping it's not because corey was doing so good in his career. he was making his comeback. but also at the same time he was showing me he was clean on the phone. i don't get to see corey every day. i do a lot of talking to him on the phone because i'm out trying to get him another project. he was excited about his career. he was motivated. he was working out. he was sticking to his program. he wanted his career back. he showed no signs of that. i talked to his mom today about
9:29 pm
yesterday and there was no signs of him overdosing from what his mom was telling me. so i know he had a flu and he was running a 99 temperature to 101. he mentioned to his mother that he was having problems breathing late last night and his mom asked him to roll over on his side and he started feeling better and then pretty much they went back to sleep. everything was fine and he -- his mom heard someone walking around the room. she opened her eyes it was corey walking and stumbling and he fell straight to the floor and that's when all this happened. they called an ambulance and the ambulance came and from what i heard from the hospital he had a cardiac before he actually got there. >> larry: the magazine "in touch
9:30 pm
weekly" said dr. drew pinsky, a guest tomorrow night, confirmed that corey had been approached to participate in vh-1's celebrity rehab. is that true? >> not with me. not since i repped corey. i never got a phone call about dr. drew. >> larry: is it true he was approached to take part in the celebrity fit club? >> yes. i thought me being his agent. corey is a movie guy. we wanted to focus on movies. i always told him i will give him representation if he remains clean. i won't rep him otherwise. we put together a great program for him and he was doing well. he was starting to get movie after movie. he was actually starting to book up this whole year and he was excited. he actually had a chance to direct his first film this year. >> larry: when will we see american sunset? >> i'm hoping soon.
9:31 pm

9:35 pm
spoken to him recently? >> the last time i spoke with him was when he and corey were talking about doing "the two coreys." >> larry: how long did you date him >> well, we dated when we were very young. i met him right after he moved to los angeles after finishing the movie "lucas." we dated a few years off and on. we worked together in the late '80s, early '90s. >> larry: what was he like? >> he was -- he was fun. he was fun to be around. he was light spirited, believe it or not. he was never stressful or angry. always trying to have a good time. happy guy. friendly guy. >> larry: did you know about his drug problems. >> of course. yes. yeah. >> larry: was he having a tough time battling it? >> yeah. he was definitely struggling with a lot of demons. i spent a lot of -- a few nights
9:36 pm
in the emergency room with him. and, you know, it's just -- he just struggled most of his adult life. >> larry: what was it like to work with him? >> sometimes it was really great working with him. sometimes it was really hard because sometimes it would take him a while to come out of the trailer. sometimes he would be, you know, too intoxicated to work at times and we'd just have to wait. at the end of the day, it was always a good day with corey. >> larry: did you get angry? >> i didn't get angry. i got sad. frustrated at times. but i don't know if angry is the right word. >> larry: did he give you a ring? >> he did give me a ring. it was a time when he was in a really, really bad place and we were filming together and we would film all day and at night i would spend the nights with
9:37 pm
him in the emergency room hooked up to an i.v., begging doctors for a different prescription and going back to work the next day. i think he felt like i was really there for him. he was a hopeless romantic and such a lover. he was such a loving guy. at the end of the shoot he gave me a ring and requested me if i would marry him. >> larry: did you consider yourself engaged. >> no. no. i love him. i have always loved him and will continue to always love him but he is just battling too much. >> larry: so very hard on a relationship? >> very hard on a relationship, a friendship. when you love somebody you want to be there for them but at some point you can't sit there and watch it happen anymore. >> larry: you say you loved him. were you in love with him? >> i think there were times in my life i could maybe have been in love with him, but very
9:38 pm
young. i loved him deeply. >> larry: had he straightened out, could you have seen a life with him? >> i've known him -- i don't know. i don't know. i never thought about it like that because he had started at such a young age that it just never -- that was never a possibility. >> larry: his feelings kwr corey feldman were very strong? >> they're amazing. >> caller: corey was here earlier. it is very sad. >> it is sad. so many people have contacted me and so many people make statements. it is so nice that people are going to remember him this way because for the past few years i have heard snarky remarks and people more making jokes and, you know, not giving him any credibility. so today was kind of nice but a little late, you know. >> larry: that is what corey
9:39 pm
feldman said. >> if people realized he would have liked to have heard that, it could have made a difference. >> larry: thanks for coming, nicole. >> thank you for having me. >> larry: farrah fawcett, was she intentionally snubbed at the oscars? what ryan o'neal, jane fonda and others are saying about that next. outside. i can stream the movie airplane to my cell phone... at the airport. i can have a crystal-clear videoconference with my clients... ...muffin basket or something... ...while working offsite, or share five high-speed connections for online gaming... while enjoying the great outdoors.

9:43 pm
farrah fawcett. jane fonda said where was farrah fawcett. she should have been included. alana, why do you think she wasn't included? >> i know why she wasn't. i thought it was a horrible oversight. it wasn't. they made a statement and i spoke to the director of the academy. they made a conscious decision not to include farrah because they felt she was more well known for her television show than her movie career. >> larry: bruce davis said she should be honored at the emmies. >> that's right. >> larry: he said they left gene barry off. >> i guess they didn't read her bio. farrah did 16 films. she did "the apostle." she has been a voting member of the academy for 30 years. >> larry: i forgot about "extremities." did you watch the academy
9:44 pm
awards. >> i was very upset. i was at hugh hefner's. 35 of us were in the screening room. the whole place said what about farrah fawcett? she was an icon. in the '30s it was jean harlow, in the '50s it was marilyn monroe, in the '80s it was farrah fawcett. >> larry: don't you think of farrah fawcett and think of television? >> she got very good reviews in the movies she did. i saw her in new york in a play. i forgot the play. >> "extremities." >> larry: candy were you surprised? >> i was surprised with jean barry and bea arthur. she was excluded. she was in at annie mame" lucille ball. not the original one. she did a film or two.
9:45 pm
because she was so well known as maude and "golden girls" they thought she was more television. >> larry: there is nothing you can say to people particularly family members within a day or two of the show that helps at all. they tend to be surprised and hurt. we understand that. we're sorry for it. do you take that as an apology? >> i think they are saying they are sorry that family members and friends are upset. it is not just family members and friends. it is millions of fans. the minute she was not part of that memorial it started on twitter. the e-mails i've gotten. people are outraged. >> larry: they can't make it up, dick? >> not to me they can't. it is unforgivable. >> larry: next year they are going to say something. >> it sun forgivable. >> larry: were you shocked, candy, it was not an overlook.
