Lea Michele Talking Cory Monteith in Marie Claire Mexico

Lea Michele: Cory Monteith "Has Made My Life So Incredible"

Lea Michele looks gorgeous on the August cover of Marie Claire Mexico, which was shot just one month before her boyfriend Cory Monteith's tragic death at the age of 31. While Lea sat for the beautiful pictures in early June, Cory dropped by the LA set to support her — Marie Claire Mexico editor in chief Ariadne Grant said that Cory "showed up in great spirits," adding that the couple was "very nice and obviously happy and in love. We are very disrupted by the unfortunate and untimely events. Our thoughts are with Lea."

In the accompanying interview, Lea opened up about her on- and offscreen relationship with Cory, saying, "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." She continued, "It is important to have someone that supports you and encourage you, someone that makes you feel that you are unstoppable, that you can do anything in the world because you have him."

Though Lea has kept a low profile since Cory's death, she has released statements through her rep in the weeks since his passing, thanking her fans for their support and asking for privacy. Last week, Glee producer Ryan Murphy broke his silence in an interview and praised Lea's fortitude, saying, "I've never met any 26-year-old person stronger than Lea."
