Corey Haim, the 38-year-old actor who was a popular teen star in the 1980s, died early this morning in Burbank, according to the LA Times. Haim was pronounced dead just after 3 this morning at St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank after he was reportedly found unresponsive at his home in the Oakwood Apartments, notes Hollywood.com. Haim rose to fame in films like The Lost Boys and License to Drive, and recently was attempting a comeback, most notably in a reality series that paired him with longtime friend and co-star Corey Feldman. Haim struggled with drug addiction, and authorities are currently investigating his death to determine if it was drug-related.
