Lea Michele is finally opening up about her feelings since losing her boyfriend and co-star back in July. She shares with TV Week Australia: "I really woke up every single day feeling like I was being in some sort of spell or something, that I was lucky enough to have him in my life." She then reportedly held her fingers together to reflect a tiny amount and added, "I feel like what happened with Cory was this big in the scheme of who he was and his life. There was no greater man than Cory so for the time we spent together I consider myself very lucky." She also said, "Everyone is asking: 'Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?' But the truth is it's no harder at work than it is in life. So we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together." The 27-year-old Glee star described the Oct. 10 tribute episode to Monteith's character, Finn Hudson, as "perfect." "I feel like, for me personally, I've lost two people: Cory and Finn," Michele said. "We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him. It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn, so I felt it was very therapeutic."
