Lea Michele Reveals This 'Glee' Scene with Cory Monteith Makes Her Emotional Now

Lea Michele is the first guest on her Glee co-stars Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz‘s new podcast, in which they will be recapping old episodes of their fan favorite series.

The 33-year-old actress joined her friends to talk about the pilot, which she rewatched right before recording the podcast.

Lea dated co-star Cory Monteith for several years, right up until he unexpectedly died in 2013 from an accidental overdose. She opened up about how one of his scenes made her emotional during this rewatch, even though it never did in the past.

“The moments that made me so emotional were not anything that ever has made me emotional before about the show. One of them was when [Cory] took [Kevin] out of that port-a-potty. There were so many moments that you see the whole arc of a character for a whole season in one moment. Him taking [Kevin] out of that bathroom, and you see Finn’s heart. Oh my God,” Lea said.

Kevin also said that the scene was one his “most memorable parts” of filming the pilot.

Matthew Morrison Pays Tribute to Late Cory Monteith on His 37th Birthday

Matthew Morrison is paying tribute to his late friend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith on what would have been the actor’s 37th birthday.

The 40-year-old entertainer posted a video on Instagram saying that he didn’t have anymore new photos to share for a tribute to Cory, so he and his wife Renee decided to do a puzzle featuring Cory‘s hometown of Vancouver.

“I love my brother, Cory Monteith. I love keeping his memory alive, and his bright light shining. He inspired so many, including myself,” Matthew captioned his post.

He added, “I hope you all embrace the ones you love extra tight this weekend (especially your Moms!), and take some thoughtful moments to remember loved ones passed. But most importantly, give yourself a little love… Because there is no one in this world quite like you!”

Cory died in July 2013 from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol.

Cory Monteith's Mom Recalls the Chilling Moment She Heard About His Death From Lea Michele

Cory Monteith‘s mom, Ann McGregor, is speaking about painfully hearing that her son had passed away in July of 2013.

At the time, Cory had been dating his Glee co-star Lea Michele, and Ann says Lea called her “screaming” to ask her about the tragic news.

“I got a call from Lea and she was screaming on the phone. She was yelling, ‘Is it true, is it true about Cory?’ and I said, ‘What about Cory?’ I had heard nothing. And then police knocked on my front door,” Ann recalled to People. “I went into a state of numbness. I just shut off all emotions, and I was numb.”

“I knew it was real, but there were times when I could lie to myself and say, ‘He’s in L.A., he’ll call me soon.’ I’m still always hanging on edge. When you lose someone who is such a big part of you, you lose all purpose for living,” Ann added.

Cory‘s mom spoke further about his tragic death, including what happened just before he died that may have contributed. If you don’t know, his cause of death was officially listed him as having “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.”

Cory Monteith's Mom Speaks About His Tragic Death in Heartbreaking Interview

Cory Monteith‘s mom, Ann McGregor, is opening up about his tragic death in July of 2013.

“He wasn’t ready for the Hollywood world,” Ann told People. “Drugs were his way of checking out.”

Ann says Cory admitted he was using drugs again in December of 2012. Cory went to rehab in April of 2013, but his mom relayed that he had massive dental work done between May and July.

“He had little teeth and they were all capped. He had a lot of medication in his system, which was not good for his body coming out of rehab,” Ann said. Cory‘s cause of death was officially listed him as having “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.”

“He didn’t have enough drugs in his system to kill him, but for some reason it did because of his intolerance [built up by periods of intermittent sobriety],” she continued.

Ann added, “I still can’t pick up the pieces. My world totally stopped. And I’m a different person than I was before.” She continued, “Cory was such a loving and genuine person. And the best part of his life was still ahead.”

Our continued thoughts are with Cory‘s loved ones.
