    The other Corey has broken his silence.

    Fellow '80s heartthrob Corey Feldman has joined a growing list of celebs in paying tribute to frequent costar Corey Haim in the wake of his unexpected passing, calling the death "a tragic loss of a wonderful, beautiful, tormented soul, who will always be my brother, family, and best friend."

    "I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door," Feldman wrote on his blog. "They informed me of the loss of my brother Corey Haim. My eyes weren't even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face."

    In the statement, the Two Coreys costar went on to express his sympathy for Haim's devastated family, friends and fans.

    "I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful, beautiful, tormented soul, who will always be my brother, family, and best friend."

    Feldman urged those mourning the loss of Haim to not let his death be in vain.

    "We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived."
