LOS ANGELES, June 24 (UPI) -- Former U.S. child film star Corey Feldman revealed he was molested as a youth but insisted his assailant wasn't his friend pop star Michael Jackson.

Feldman, who starred in "Stand By Me," "Goonies" and "The Lost Boys," appears with his one-time best friend and collaborator Corey Haim in the TV reality series "The Two Coreys."

In a recent episode, Haim and Feldman discussed how both were molested as young actors but they didn't name names.

"People can say whatever they want, but it wasn't Michael," the New York Post quoted Feldman as telling GQ magazine. "He and I have our own issues but that wasn't one of them. The guy that did this to me was my assistant. I was still a virgin at the time. I hadn't even had sex with a girl. So for me it was just kind of bewildering."

Feldman and Jackson were friends when Feldman was a teen. Jackson was later charged with, but acquitted of molesting another young boy in his life.

"It's something that will be addressed in my inner soul for the rest of my life and it's something that truly affects me," the Post quotes Haim as saying. "It's just like, it happened, it's over, and move on."
