“Ya well Ryan Murphy, who is so amazing, he came to Kate [Hudson]‘s house and he said what do you want to do, whatever you want to do we’ll do. I said I have to go back to work. We have to do this is, they’re my family and what people also don’t understand is that going to work is no harder than being at home and being in the house and opening up a closet and seeing a pair of shoes,” Lea shared about working on Glee after Cory‘s death.

She added, “There’s this grief that goes with you everyday, whatever you’re doing. When there are great moments, [there are] hard moments so I’d rather, for me, be at work with the people who I love that are going through [it] and it obviously has it’s own triggers, but at the end of the day I feel so safe there. And like I said, they’re my family.”

FYI: Lea is wearing a Catherine Fulmer jacket.
