Inside, the talented young movie star dishes on getting into trouble as a teen.
“I burned a lot of bridges,” he explained. “I was out of control.”
Cory revealed that he struggled with drug addiction earlier in his life. Even a couple of stints in rehab could not prevent him from stealing from loved ones.
“I stole a significant amount of money from a family member,” Cory confessed. “I knew I was going to get caught, but I was so desperate I didn’t care. It was a cry for help. I was confronted and I said, ‘Yeah, it was me.’ It was the first honorable, truthful thing that had come out of my mouth in years.”
“I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too…But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it. If I can, anyone can.”
