About Corey Haim
At the time of his death, Corey Haim net worth amounted to million dollars. He ascended to stardom as a teenager, starring in variety of successful movies, including Murphy’s Romance and License to Drive. I think it was in the 1980s that Corey Haim net worth grew at the fastest rate ever. However, being a teenager millionaire in Hollywood is not as easy as it might seem. Plus, the world of celebrities is full of temptations and risks that most young men can’t handle. Unfortunately, Corey was not an inclusion. The actor started using alcohol and drugs at a very young age and this was a beginning of an end for him. But let’s take a closer look at his path to stardom and eventual demise.
Corey started his Professional career in 1984, appearing as Brian Livingston on Firstborn. The following year a 14-year-old starred in Silver Bullet (a horror film which grossed more than $12 million dollars on a budget of $7 million) and Murphy‘s Romance ( a romance comedy which grossed almost $31 million on a budget of $13 million). Corey Haim net worth continued to grow as he landed a leading role on Lucas, teen tragicomedy which was not only profitable, but also received positive critical reviews.
In 1987 Cores Professional career was still going great: that year he starred in a teen horror film The Lost Boys, alongside such 1980s stars as Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman, Dianne Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Alex Winter, Jamison Newlander, and Barnard Hughes. However, that‘s when Corey turned to the wrong path in his personal life. As the actor has later admitted, while filming The Lost Boys the teenager was already drinking and smoking marihuana. As time went on, things got worse. In one of his interviews Corey has admitted: „I did cocaine for about a year and a half, then it led to crack. I started on the downers which were a hell of a lot better than the uppers because I was a nervous wreck. But one led to two, two led to four, four led to eight, until at the end it was about 85 a day“. As most addicts, Haim was not able to keep his career afloat and his star started fading away.
For a brief period since 2004 it seemed like the actor has managed to get his addiction under control, although this was never easy. This battle was described by the actor himself: “It’s one day at a time. It’s one second at a time-it’s really one millisecond at a time sometimes. But you gotta grind your teeth and bear it.“ Unfortunately, never again Corey Haim net worth grew as fast as it did at the beginning of his career, because he started using drugs again.
