Glee star Lea Michele labeled boyfriend Cory Monteith "the best person I know" in an interview which took place just weeks before his untimely death.
According to E! News, in the upcoming August issue of Marie Claire Mexico, cover girl Lea opens up about her relationship with on-and-off-screen boyfriend Monteith - her words made all the more poignant following the tragic news of his death from an accidental overdose on July 13.
Lea said: "It's more interesting having a relationship with someone you work with because we get more attention because we play boyfriend and girlfriend on the show and we are also in real life.
"But he is the best person I know, he has made my life so incredible and I am so thankful for him and not only to have him as a partner but also as a co-worker."
The 26-year-old actress continued by saying that in a relationship, "It is important to have someone that supports you and encourages you, someone that makes you feel that you are unstoppable, that you can do anything in the world because you have him."
Cory even visited Lea during her photoshoot for the magazine, with Marie Claire Mexico Editor-in-Chief Ariadne Grant recalling:
"Cory showed up in great spirits and was very nice to everybody there, he even took pictures with whoever asked for it.
“He just asked for a Coke and stayed there watching the shooting until it was done."
Grant continued: “They were both very nice and obviously happy and in love, we are very disrupted by the unfortunate and untimely events. Our thoughts are with Lea."
Glee bosses have confirmed that the cast and crew will return to work in September to film several episodes, one of which will be a tribute episode to Cory.
