Lea Michele grieves for Cory Monteith everday

  • Print

Lea Michele has been struck with grief "every day" since the death of her late boyfriend Cory Monteith.

The 'Glee' star has been left distraught since her lover and co-star died of a drug overdose last July, but she admits she's trying to get on with her life by throwing herself back into work and rising above the pain.

She told We Love Pop magazine: "You can choose to rise, which is what I'm going to try and do, but you have to be very strong. I think I'm doing the best for myself, by showing that you don't have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some strength or comfort. I'm trying to do my best for him."

She added: "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 shows. There's this grief with you every day whatever you're doing - so I'd rather be at work with the people who I love that going through it. They're my family."

The 27-year-old actress stayed with her friend Kate Hudson for a few weeks after the death of Cory because she couldn't face the flock of reporters standing outside her house, and she insists she'll never be able to thank her pal enough for her support during such a heartbreaking time.

She explained: "I called her [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. She let my family and friends stay there. She made sure that the fridge was stocked up with my favourite juices. I'll never be able to thank her enough for what she did for me."
