It's been just a few days since Corey Feldman launched his Truth Campaign: a crowdsourcing initiative in which he hopes to raise $10 million to make a film about sexual abuse in Hollywood and his life. Having raised less than $200,000 so far, the child star sat down with Today's Matt Lauer to discuss the campaign and his alleged abuse.
Feldman described the film as "a very true story" and said he plans to give a firsthand perspective about "everybody that affected my life." Lauer argued The Goonies star had gone "down this road before"—promising to release the names of his alleged predators in his 2013 memoir Coreyography and then failing to do so. Feldman argued his hands were tied at the time.
"This is why I'm doing this," he said on Today. "Because when I wrote my book, the publishers prevented me from writing the names down. They made me change the names."
