Lea Michele Stayed with Kate Hudson After Cory Monteith's Death

Lea Michele Stayed with Kate Hudson After Cory Monteith's Death

Lea Michele is gorgeous on the cover of Elle magazine’s December 2013 issue, on newsstands November 19.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Glee actress had to share with the mag:

On how she’s handling Cory Monteith’s death: “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. I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people.”

On relying on friend & Glee co-star Kate Hudson after Cory’s death: “I called [Kate Hudson] and said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters].’ 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.”

On taking time to heal: “It’s very hard. And you have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.”

On why she never expected her career in television to take off: “I was told my whole life I would never do television because I was too ethnic. I was 100 percent focused and ready to be the best in the world [of Broadway] I was in.”

    LOL to the entire interview. Lea who I suppose must have a lot of friends on LA (and not famous) stayed in Kate Hudson’s house, someone she knows for less than at year? OK. And look how magically every blogs and news are only talking about how Kate Hudson helped Lea.
    Oh Lea never change. Just wait next year when her album comes out and will be again Cory this and Cory that, because let’s be real she will milk this story until the last drop.

    people is so full of hate today, what a surprise. it is nice that she has a good support system, if she stayed at jonathan groff’s house the paps would be at his door obviously.

    Considering her and Cory’s relationship was only a PR stunt, this is the best acting she’s done in all her life.

    i thought we already over this. her next interview will be about Hanukkah is not the same without Cory, then Christmas without Cory doesn’t feel like holiday at all, then i always spend new year with Cory. and lastly, i miss spending valentine day with Cory.

    That’s what I thought too. no normal loving person will bounce back that fast.
    She has this Bitchy persona that makes me think she might have push him hard in trying to recover from his addiction to the brink of killing himself.

    I don’t find her remotely attractive. She’s also lost too much weight.
    And this friendship with a Kate Hudson, who cares?

    You don’t know her. You shouldn’t judge her if you don’t know her.The person who said that she forced him to do this or that she caused him to do this is a stupid idiot. Lea never forced corg to go to Vancouver and she sure as hell never said go buy heroin. That was all Cory. Its funny how you all make **** up be because you think she is a *****.isn’t that what you heard though. All of us are ******* at one point or another in our lives
    It doesn’t mean we don’t have feelings

    Emma Says:

    She’s really milking this one dry isn’t she. It’s obvious. Compare to other significant others who have lost a loved one in Hollywood, and this one takes the cake! Come on! She’s been all over the gossip news, you cannot deny it.
