Lea Michele Covers Marie Claire, Says Cory Monteith Made Her Life ‘Incredible’

Lea Michele Marie Claire

What a bittersweet interview.

Lea Michele graces the cover of the Marie Claire magazine’s August issue, which was shot a little over one month before her boyfriend Cory Monteith’s death.

Marie Claire Mexico/Latin America Editor-in-chief Ariadne Grant spoke of the the photoshoot with Lea and her joy when Monteith paid her the surprise visit on location. Michele was already excited to be doing the photoshoot and to be working with professionals she knew and admired.

Grant has revealed what Lea was like to work with. 

“Lea Michele arrived early with her beauty team and her agent and was always professional, dedicated and her experience was obvious on the photo shoot but showed another side of her personality, softer and more innocent, on the interview when she got all excited with some questions, she said she loved Mexico so much. That side was even more evident when Cory showed up almost at the end of the session, she was very happy about him being there,” she told E! Online.

In the interview, Michele opened up about her relationship with her costar.

“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,” she told the magazine. “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.”

Ugh. I cannot imagine how hard it is going to be for Lea and the cast of Glee to head back to the set in a few weeks, but honoring Cory with a tribute episode is the right thing to do. It will really let the healing begin for a lot of people.
