“I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?”

I was a social outcast when I was 12 and the only boys that lived near me would make a game out of beating the shit out of me every day.

So thank fuck I don't have friends like that anymore.

Oof, that’s a tough break. Hope things are better for you.

I've still got them 28 years later. All ten of us. Extremely lucky.

Still play D&D?

River Phoenix <3

But look how he's the most serious looking of the bunch, met the worst end, even compared to Corey

I have a feeling that he went through the same shit as Corey which led to his descent into drugs.

He stated that he list his virginity at age 4. He also claimed that the cult he was in "ruined peoples' lives". It's horrible to look back and realize whatve he must have gone through.

Yea, I think he was wrapped up in some polygamist cult. I also think he said that Joaqin got out of it before too much damage.

It was when they were only kids, Joaquin was born into it. Their family left the cult when they were still very young.

Yea, that's what I said.

Joaquin was pretty lucky. He managed to get out of it while he was super young.

He was younger than five, iirc.

fuck.... you think? that never occurred to me cause he was so cool, like no one could victimize him. Again, so many young actors were molested, threatened, it's hard to know who and how it impacted their lives until now when few are speaking out

His family was in a polygamist cult when he and his siblings were young. River said he lost his virginity at four.

Cool pic. The clapboard that River is holding says "The Body" so I guess they didn't change the title of the film until later.

Yeah the distribution company changed the name a few months before it came out, they thought it sounded misleading

The focus of the story always seemed more about their friendship anyway so I always found Stand By Me to be a better title.

Corey <3

Lol I just saw your comment after I posted mine.

Well, we love our boys ;)

Dude his new album tho 🔥🔥🔥

I love this film still to this day. Rip River


Vic Mensa

I hear they're making a sequel. It's called "Now Go Stand By Somebody Else."

Why don't you eat your dick?

It'll be a small meal.

It absolutely is.

It's cool, I've not talked to him ever before on Reddit, so I guess I have no idea what I'm talking about. /s

Buddy, it is absolutely his account. You can't even see half the things he posts because you don't have access to a sub or two he's active in. The reason people are downvoting you is because they know for a fact that it's him.

...Wil Wheaton?

/u/Wil is the real Wil Wheaton? All I see on his profile is him posting porn pics.

Bud, I just walked outside and inhaled. Smells like freedom, eagle feathers and money.

Bro, I'm literally on the internet right now. Outside. Outernet. My phone background is the American flag, my case is a photograph of the Constitution. This. Is. America. All are welcome. From you and me, to wil wheaton, to people that spell color with a 'u'.

This is the melting pot.

Such a great movie!!!

Wow! Can’t believe that’s 33 years old. Epic film than. Epic film now.


As a fan of this movie and final fantasy it was really a surprise when I started playing final fantasy 15. I don't know how big the crossover is for those two fan bases, but 15 I felt was a lot better if you played the game and pretend it's a JRPG version of that movie.

Spoiler alert: The beginning of the game has all the main cast pushing their car to the nearest gas station, while Stand By Me plays in the background which is weird, but is kind of a neat set up for the rest of the game.

I agree. Everything I’ve watched, and read about him he seemed to be very mature for his age, and took his career seriously

Man, that was a great movie.

Hard to believe that the chubby kid, who is second from the left, went on to play the star football recruit in Jerry McGuire.

His name is Jerry O'Connell, and he's been in a lot more than just JM.

I'm aware of that.

I met him last month. He's very nice. And tall.

It's always interesting to me to hear how screen actors seem in person.

He was at a dog show I was at. He looked pretty damn good too.

He seems like a very nice looking man.

He is for sure. It was a weird situation, because people kept coming up to talk to me while I was basically asking why he was at a dog show. Kinda cool.

Omg get down from there, you might get hurt... Hello from 2018.. it sucks here

Back in the day when kids could wear whatever they wanted without being called out for being a nerd or freak.

I think it's called wardrobe for a 1950s movie?

ohh, thanks I didn't realize this was a 50's movie. Sorry
