Lea Michele Opens Up About Cory Monteith: 'There Was No Greater Man'

Lea Michele has broken her silence on the tragic death of her beloved boyfriend Cory Monteith just one day before his Glee tribute episode is set to air.

“For me personally, I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn,” the 27-year-old Glee star told TV Week Australia. “We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him. It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn, so I felt it was very therapeutic.”

“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,” Lea continued. “So we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together.”

“I woke up every single day feeling like I was in some sort of spell or something, that I was lucky enough to have him in my life,” Lea shared. “There was no greater man than Cory, so for the time we spent together, I consider myself very lucky.”

Be sure to tune into Glee tomorrow night to see the full tribute episode.
