It’s kind of hard to look at the latest issue of Mexico’s Marie Claire without tearing up a little…
In the new issue with Lea Michele on the cover, the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Ariadne Grant revealed that during shooting, Cory surprised Lea on set while she sat for photos. It was just five weeks before his untimely death.
Ariandne recalled the day. Cory stopped by the Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills, where the shoot was underway, to support Lea and he “showed up in great spirits and was nice to everybody there,” observing that together they were “very nice and obviously happy and in love.”
“He just asked for a Coke and stayed there watching the shooting until it was done,” she added, saying that he took pictures with whoever asked.
In the cover story’s accompanying interview, Lea talked about her relationship with Cory, on and off the screen.
“He is the best person I know,” she said, “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.”
“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,” she added.
