'Goonies' co-star backs Corey Feldman's sex-assault claims

(PAGE SIX) — Corey Feldman’s “Goonies” co-star Sean Astin is standing by his friend as Feldman comes forward with allegations of a Hollywood pedophile ring.

“Hopefully, this doesn’t play out as a personal tabloid story,” Astin told us at TBS’s “Search Party” premiere at Public Hotel. “The fact is, real people all over the country are starting to have a conversation, and it can be very distracting if it distills down into some kind of typical [story].”

He added, “My only concern is [it] won’t actually develop into the complex conversation that needs to happen. And if it doesn’t, and it becomes about quickly pointing fingers and making accusations and the obvious stuff, I think it will be a missed opportunity.”
