Lea Michele reveals Kate Hudson took her in after Cory Monteith’s death
Lea Michele has revealed that one of the first people she called following the tragic death of her boyfriend Cory Monteith back in July, was her ‘Glee’ co-star Kate Hudson.
The starlet spoke out about how she coped in the days following her on and off-screen beau’s passing in the December issue of Elle magazine, explaining that she owes a lot to Hudson for taking her into her home.
“I called her and said ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters,]’” said Michele, according to the Daily Mail.
“She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing.”
Kate and Lea formed their strong bond back in 2012 when the 34-year-old joined the cast of ‘Glee,’ guest starring as Rachel Berry’s dance teacher, Cassandra July.
Lea further explained that not only did Kate support her in her time of need, but also opened up her home to the 27-year-old’s support group of family and friends.
“She let my family stay there, and any of my friends. She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favourite juices,” shared Michele.
“I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”
31-year-old Monteith was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver on July 13, and autopsy results concluded that he died from a combination of heroin and alcohol.
“Now that I'm in this position, you can choose to rise, which is what I'm going to try to do,” said the starlet when speaking about moving on.
“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.
“I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people,” she added.
“I don't know if I will. I don't know how.”
