Corey HaimActor Corey Haim died this morning of an apparent overdose -- possibly accidental -- according to LAPD. He was 38.

Police tell us they were called to St. Joseph's hospital in Burbank, CA shortly before 4 AM PT to investigate.

Haim shot to fame in the 80s -- when he co-starred in a number of films, including "The Lost Boys" with Corey Feldman.

Haim reportedly suffered a drug-induced stroke in 2001 and was rushed to UCLA Medical Center.

Haim also reportedly was in and out of rehab 15 times, but cleaned up in 2004 after moving to Toronto.

I am 40 and was a teenager in the 80's. Between this and the scary cast of Breakfast Club on the Oscars, I am starting to feel pretty old.

I liked him OK. I liked some of his movies. It's a sad thing. He's the EXACT same age as me. same birthday even, lol. I mean it's not that big of a shock because it's well known that he has/had a nasty drug problem, but it's still sad. I feel bad for his Parents. It's just too bad we keep loosing all of these talented people to drugs. I don't know what else to say about it except, WOW that really sucks.. it's awful.

I was shocked when I turned the news on and discovered Corey Haim had died...I grew up to his movies and posters all over my wall, one star I truly wanted to meet...I'd luv to see Feldman speak on this matter. God bless the Haims

Okay...so.. "Singer Rick James "did" in the same apartment complex in 2004." What did Rick James do???? If this is a typo, then may I suggest: stop being in such a hurry to post the gossip without proof reading it?
At any rate, it's so sad...all these people dying of overdosing!

My heartfelt sympathies go out to his family. He fought so hard, it seemed...and instead of being on "The Two Coreys", he could have had a seat with his name on it, so to speak, on Dr. Drew's show. I supported Corey uncondtionally, clean/sober or using - he had the tools and the support - I only wish'd he'd reached out - Addiction is a cunning and baffeling disease - no one wakes up and decides that's the path they are going to take....I hope his mom can find some peace, somewhere....like her, I wanted nothing more than for him to find himself and to succeed. Godspeed my friend. You will be missed.

Another one that Hollywood chewed up and spit out. Maybe one of these days drugs won't be the cool thing to do there anymore.

Pretty sad when one who has everything feels so empty he/she must resort to this.

Losing someone so young to drugs is always a tragedy, regardless of what they do for a living. Some of you say how stupid he was- he got hooked on heroin as a kid- at like 14. More proof that kids who are thrown into the media circus should have someone acting as their guardian until they are adults, someone who cares about them and their well being, not someone using them as a meal ticket.
Show some empathy, this happens to regular people every day and it destroys lives. It could easily happen to someone you know. RIP Corey.
