Lea Michele (Rachel) has been staying out of the public lately, but she is about to be featured on a magazine cover that was shot just a month before her boyfriend Cory Monteith’s (Finn) tragic death on July 13.

Lea is featured on the cover of the current issue of Marie Claire Mexico. The magazine interviewed her back in early June, and Lea said some really beautiful things about her relationship with Cory.

"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,” Lea said at the time. “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."

"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," she adds.

Reading these quotes reminds us just how great Lea and Cory were together and how strong their love was for each other. Though Lea is grieving deeply, the Glee star seems committed to returning to the show for Season 5. “She wants to be with people. The [Glee] family is her family. She wants to be with the cast and the crew,” creator Ryan Murphy recently said. We continue to wish Lea all the best during this difficult time.
