Cory Monteith and Lea Michele: ‘Teen Vogue’ Cover Couple
Cory Monteith and Lea Michele are on next month’s cover of Teen Vogue, and the behind-the-scenes snapshots just surfaced. It’s pretty much the cutest thing we’ve seen in weeks (with the exception of last week’s Glee, which was probably the cutest thing we’ve seen in our entire lives). Lea has a boyfriend and all, but don’t you think they would make such a sweet couple in real life?
Cory on his first kiss: Mine was in junior high. We couldn’t hang out at her parents’ house, so we hung out in this big field, underneath a willow tree. That’s where we were the first time we made out. It was beautiful, tall grass and all that, but it was on the side of a highway, so people were honking their horns at us.
Cory on his pre-Glee life: I’ll make it quick. I was 20 years old, working as a roofer and a telemarketer and driving a taxi, just barely getting by. A friend of a friend suggested I try acting. I was like, “Why? What am I going to do? Community theater?” But I took a class, and the teacher thought that I had potential, so I moved to Vancouver and started auditioning. I slept on someone’s floor. I brought, like, two shirts and two pairs of pants.
Lea on their cast hookups: Raunchy. No, I hate to be boring, but we’re just friends. I think Mark and Naya dated for a little while… And now it’s the key incident.
Lea on fame: There is some bad stuff that comes with this kind of popularity. But no matter what’s going on in my life, the next thing I know, we’re jumping on mattresses, having slushies thrown at us—or just having fun with each other. It really does make everything OK.
