When asked about what it’s like to work with her boyfriend, she said, “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 notonly to have him as a partner but also as a co-worker.”
As she discussed their relationship, Michele gushed about the support and care they have for each other. “It is important to have someone that supports 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 mused.
Michele has remained understandably mum about Monteith since his passing. On July 29, a little over two weeks after Monteith’s death, the heartbroken actress posted the following:
Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart. pic.twitter.com/XVlZnh9vOc
