Glee’s Lea Michele Talks About Losing Cory Monteith

Lea Michele has given her first interview since the death of her Glee co-star boyfriend Cory Monteith.

It’s the first time the 27-year-old actress has publically opened up about her grief, with Lea revealing to TV Week Australia why the loss of Cory has hit her twice as hard.

”I feel like, for me personally, I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn,” Lea, who’s been seeing wearing her ‘Finn’ necklace close to her heart, admitted about mourning for both her late boyfriend’s on and off-screen personas.

32-year-old Cory died from a lethal mix of champagne and heroin in June, with the Canadian actor being discovered in his hotel room.

Since then, we’ve seen girlfriend Lea cope amazingly – returning to work, keeping in touch with her fans and even honouring her man with a tearful memorial song in Glee Season 5.

”There was no greater man than Cory, so for the time we spent together I consider myself very lucky,” she touchingly added.

And it seems being back on the Glee set is actually what’s made coping with life after Cory more bearable for the US star.

”Everyone is asking: ‘Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?’, but the truth is it’s no harder at work than it is in life so we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together”, she said.

We are so in awe of this lady.
