Lea Michele: I'm Staying Strong After Cory Monteith's Death

Lea Michele gets candid in the December 2013 issue of Elle magazine, on newsstands Nov. 19.

The 27-year-old Glee star opened up to the mag about her co-star boyfriend Cory Monteith‘s death, on who she turned to, and how she’s healing. Check it:

On how she’s handling Cory’s passing: “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 Kate Hudson: “I called [Kate] 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 TV career 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.”
