Lea Michele on dating Cory Monteith: 'No one knows me better'
Lea Michele is candid in a new interview with Marie Claire about her relationship with "Glee" co-star Cory Monteith.
Michele appears on the cover of the magazine's January issue, which goes on sale on Tuesday, December 11. Monteith confirmed to Ellen DeGeneres last week that the two are dating.
"I don't even remember a time when he wasn't my boyfriend," Michele told the magazine about Monteith, according to E! News. "No one knows me better than Cory. No one knows what it's been like to go through this more than he does ... He makes me feel like I can do anything."
She later added, "For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy ... I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."
Michele and Monteith have been linked together romantically off-screen since February 2012. The couple stepped out together at the Do Something Awards in August. See photos here.
In October, the 26-year-old actress laughed off pregnancy rumors on Twitter writing, "My first fake pregnancy rumor! I've finally made it! :) ."
When Monteith appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on December 6, DeGeneres asked the actor if he know what "Monchele" was. It's the couple name fans assigned to the duo.
"People think y'all are a couple," DeGeneres said.
"Well we are," Monteith, 30, responded. "Of course we are."
"I took her snowboarding for her first time in Whistler, in Canada," he added. "She was actually very good."
Michele spoke to the magazine about rumors of a feud between herself and guest star Kate Hudson. Michele said Hudson called her immediately after the actress heard the rumor and said, "I just heard about that, and it [expletive] sucks. I want you to know I think you're amazing."
The "Glee" star was also asked about her cleavage-baring red carpet ensembles and joked to the magazine about her breasts saying, "These babies are great. They are my prizewinners."
