Lea Michele (right) looked to Kate Hudson for help after the death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith.
The actress reveals how Kate Hudson helped her after Cory Monteith's death.
Glee star Lea Michele has opened up about the death of her co-star and boyfriend Cory Monteith, saying that she’s trying to use Monteith’s death for good.
“I never thought I would be in this position in my whole life. Now that I am in this position, you can choose to rise, and that’s what I’m going to try to do,” Michele said in the December issue of Elle.
“I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people.”
Michele also revealed how actress Kate Hudson, who had a guest-starring run on Glee last season, opened up her home to Michele during the media frenzy that followed Monteith’s death.
“I called and said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed (with reporters)’,” Michele, who’s opened up about Monteith’s death only occasionally, said.
“She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house’. Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”
Monteith, who had a long-standing struggle with addiction, died in Vancouver, Canada in July of what was later determined to be an accidental overdose, with the coroner noting that Monteith died of “intravenous heroin use in combination with ingestion of alcohol.” — Reuters
