Famous actor Elijah Wood surely made some curious and shocking revelations. The famous actor said during a new interview that there actually is a pedophilia problem in Hollywood. Without a doubt, his claims came as a shock for many.
“Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organized. There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind,” Elijah Wood said during a new interview with the Sunday Times.
“There is darkness in the underbelly. What bums me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power. That’s the tragedy of attempting to reveal what is happening to innocent people: they can be squashed, but their lives have been irreparably damaged,” he went on to add. “If you’re innocent, you have very little knowledge of the world and you want to succeed,” the famous actor explained.
“People with parasitic interests will see you as their prey. What upsets me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power,” Wood added. Luckily, Elijah Wood had no tragic experience as a child actor in Hollywood, but claimed that this was his case only because his mother protected him and prevented him from attending the parties at which such things were happening.
Elijah Wood claimed that he believes that these things are still occurring in Hollywood. As imagined, the actor did not reveal too much detail on his claims, so there are no specific situations shared or names revealed in his interview. Well, allegations against a lot of senior Hollywood names have emerged in the most recent years. And some actors also made certain revelations.
For example, Corey Feldman, a former child actor, revealed that he was surrounded by abusers while working in the industry as a teenager. “The No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is—and always will be—pedophilia,” Feldman said during an interview dating back to 2011. Feldman was very direct in his interview and managed to cause a lot of headlines at the time when the claims were first made.
