March 10, 2010 — -- Two decades after finding stardom, many of the stars of the 1980s are falling apart.

Eighties teen heartthrob Corey Haim died from an apparent accidental drug overdose Wednesday morning, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. The 38-year-old actor, best known for his roles in "License to Drive" and "The Lost Boys," struggled with cocaine and Valium addictions throughout his life and reportedly went to rehab more than 15 times.

In a 2007 interview with "Nightline," Haim, who most recently starred in the A&E reality series "The Two Coreys" with fellow '80s icon Corey Feldman, spoke about fighting his drug addiction.

"I feel like ... I ruined myself to the point where I wasn't functional enough to work for anybody, even myself. I wasn't working," Haim said. "You know, if I'm not working, how anybody else can expect me to work for them if I'm not working. I mean physically working. My brain wasn't working."

Stories like Haim's are not uncommon among a coterie of child stars from 1980s TV and movies. Below, check out the tales of ten others who ended up plagued with problems.
