Lea Michele talks fondly of boyfriend Cory Monteith in the new Marie Claire Mexico, saying "he is the best person I know" and that he's made her life "so incredible." Lea sat down for the interview a month before Cory's tragic death. Lea Michele's new Marie Claire Mexico cover is gorgeous--but her interview inside the issue, where she talks about Cory Monteith, is heartbreaking.
Lea sat down for the interview a month before Cory's tragic death from a drug overdose--she was obviously head-over-heels in love with her Glee co-star, based on her glowing answer about their relationship.
She shared in the interview: "It's more interesting having a relationship with someone you work with because we get more attention because we play boyfriend and girlfriend on the show and we are also in real life. But he is the best person I know, he has made my life so incredible, and I am so thankful for him and not only to have him as a partner but also as a co-worker."
Lea continued, "It is important to have someone that supports you and encourage you, someone that makes you feel that you are unstoppable, that you can do anything in the world because you have him."
Marie Claire Mexico and Latin America Editor-in-Chief Ariadne Grant said that Cory came to the photoshoot to support Lea: "Cory showed up in great spirits and was very nice to everybody there; he even took pictures with whoever asked for it. He just asked for a Coke and stayed there watching the shooting until it was done. They were both very nice and obviously happy and in love, we are very disrupted by the unfortunate and untimely events. Our thoughts are with Lea."
Ariadne noted that when Cory showed up, Lea "was very happy about him being there."
