was moved by his former Stand By Me co-star Jerry O’Connell’s apology for being unaware of the abuse and trauma Wheaton had experienced as a child.
Wheaton appeared on The Talk Thursday, where O’Connell serves as a co-host, and where he apologized to Wheaton.
“I heard before you talk about some of the struggles you were going through during Stand by Me, and you know, while I was 11 at the time, that’s an excuse; I do want to apologize for not being there more for you when you were younger,” O’Connell said. “But I want to say, to the bigger picture, you never know what someone is going through when you’re with them. I don’t feel guilt, but I just want to say I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you more when you were younger.”
Wennberg's quick goal helps Kraken to 6-1 victory over Kings
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alex Wennberg scored 14 seconds into the game, Jared McCann had his team-leading 24th goal of the season and the Seattle Kraken dominated on both ends of the ice in a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. Chris Driedger stopped 36 shots for the Kraken, who have four wins in their last six games. Seattle had 14 of its 18 skaters record a point. Adam Larsson, Victor Rask, Jordan Eberle and Daniel Sprong also scored and Vince Dunn collected two assists. Arthur Kaliyev scored and Cal Petersen made 32 saves for Los Angeles, which had earned points in four of its last five coming into the game.
“But I wish I was older back then so I could’ve said, ‘Hey Wil, hey man, is anything ?'” O’Connell continued.
“I deeply appreciate that,” a sympathetic Wheaton replied. “You were 11. How could you have possibly known? Also, everyone in the audience who is a trauma survivor knows this: We’re real, real, real good at covering up what we’re going through.”
Wheaton spoke of the pain he experienced as a child in an interview with Yahoo Entertainment in May 2021. Wheaton said he “didn’t want to be an actor when I was a kid. My parents forced me to do it,” alleging of his actress mom, “My mother made me do it. My mother coached me to go into her agency and tell the children’s agent, ‘I want to do what Mommy does.’ ”
After hearing of Wheaton’s comments, O’Connell later said on The Talk that he had no idea what Wheaton was going through when they were filming the movie.
Bills' new stadium deal resurfaces puzzling question: Why do owners get taxpayer money to build venues?
The Bills are set to receive an expected record $850 million in taxpayer funding for a new stadium in Buffalo. But why are taxpayers footing the bill?The state's taxpayers are picking up most of the $1.4 billion-dollar tab.
“I think what should be said is you have no idea — not even co-workers, just people close to you — you have no idea what is going on with someone,” he added. “So if you sense anything amiss, anything weird, it costs you nothing to just go up to them and say, ‘Hey is everything okay? Is anything going on? Do you need someone to talk to?'”
Wheaton and O’Connell starred, along with Corey Feldman and River Phoenix, in the 1986 coming-of-age film Stand By Me, directed by Rob Reiner. They portrayed four boys who, in 1959, go on a hike to find the dead body of a missing boy.

Kacey Musgraves’ Nashville Pad Felt Like a ‘New Beginning’ Post-Divorce .
Not her “Golden Hour.” Kacey Musgraves has slowly opened up more and more about her divorce from Ruston Kelly — and she’s ready to fully heal from the heartbreak. The musicians tied the knot in October 2017 after sparking their romance the previous year. In July 2020, they announced they were going their separate ways. “We believe that we were put into each other’s lives for a divine reason and have both changed each other infinitely for the better,” the duo said in a joint statement at the time. “The love we have for each other goes far beyond the relationship we’ve shared as husband and wife. It’s a soul connection that can never be erased. … We hold no blame, anger or contempt for each other and we ask for privacy and positive wishes for us both as we learn how to navigate through this.” According to their filing, which was obtained by Us Weekly, the pair asserted that they “still have love and respect for one another.” Musgraves cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. Two months later, the singers’ divorce was made final. A source told Us at the time that while Musgraves “was the one who initiated” the separation, she was “really upset” about the end of her marriage. The “Butterflies” artist didn’t publicly address the breakup until February 2021, telling Rolling Stone that there’s a small part of her that “questions marriage as a whole, in general.” She added, “I mean, I was open to it when it came into my life. I embraced it.
