Lea Michele: “I’ll Never be Able to Thank Kate Hudson”

Lea Michele has opened up about how Kate Hudson helped her through her most difficult time following boyfriend Cory Monteith’s death.

“I called her and said, I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters],” Lea reveals in the December issue of Elle.  “She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing.”

Hudson, 34, also opened up her L.A. home to Michele’s family and friends.

“She let my family stay there, and any of my friends. She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favourite juices,’ Michele, 27 said. “I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”

The celebrity friends met in 2012 when Hudson guest starred on Glee playing Michele’s character Rachel Berry’s dance instructor.

Monteith, 31, died in July from an overdose caused by heroin and alcohol. The couple has been dating from the beginning of the show in 2009 although only went public with their relationship in 2012.

The actress revealed how she was moving forward with her life following his death.

“Now that I’m in this position, you can choose to rise, which is what I’m going to try to do.

“It’s very hard and you have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.”

She says she takes comfort in carrying on with her life as Monteith would have wanted. “I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people,’ she said. ‘I don’t know if I will. I don’t know how.”

Get The Look: Lea Michele’s Glowing Makeup

Lea Michele simply glowed at yesterday’s ELLE Women in Hollywood Celebration in Beverly Hills, pairing slicked back hair with radiant cheeks and a your-lips-but-better nude lip. Such a pretty look for summer parties and weddings. Here’s how celebrity makeup artist Melanie Inglessis created the look.

Face
Melanie started with L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup in Sun Beige. For Lea’s radiant cheeks, she applied L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Nude Lift.

Eyes
Lea’s clean eye makeup only needed a slick of eyeliner and layers of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara to elongate and curl Lea’s long lashes.

Lips
Melanie applied L’Oréal Paris Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Eternally Nude for Lea’s perfectly nude lips – the perfect lip stain for summer tan skin.

5 Of The Best Celebrity Hairstyles

Don’t we love to look at celebrity hairstyles? At their best, they inspire us to take a photo to our own stylist and say, “Make me look like this!” At their worst, they inspire us to say, “Oh no – why did she DO that?”

Here’s a look at five of our favourite celebrity hairstyles and the lovely ladies who wear them. Are you in the mood to try something new?

Michelle Williams’s pixie cut

This actress had some tough competition from Anne Hathaway and Miley Cyrus, but the adorable blonde has been wearing the style for a while now and always looks totally perfect. We’ve heard that Williams is growing out her hair for a movie role, but can’t help but hope she’ll get her pixie back after it’s over!

Lea Michele’s trendy fringe

The star of Glee sports a long blunt cut with a thick fringe, setting her apart from most current celebs that have lots of layers. The look works for Michele, and plays up her beautiful dark eyes. Other beauties who know how to rock a fringe include Taylor Swift, Emma Stone and Jessica Biel.

Jennifer Lopez’s long layer

J.Lo has had long hair for several years now, but she’s never looked better than she does right now, with her lengthy, flowing layers falling over her shoulders. The layers give this style just the type of versatility this multi-faceted fashion icon needs. Other stars with long, luscious layers are Blake Lively, Sarah Jessica Parker and Reese Witherspoon.

Solange Knowles’s gorgeous curls

Beyonce’s baby sister knows how to get her own individual look by flaunting the natural texture of her short hair in tiny ringlets. Other girls with curls we love include Rihanna, Zoe Saldana and Jennifer Hudson. Curls are at their best when bouncy and shiny.

Cameron Diaz’s bouncy bob

The blonde beauty claimed to be unhappy with her shorter ‘do, but later fell in love with both the look and the easy maintenance. We will probably see Diaz with long hair again soon, but the shorter style is definitely a great look for her. Kiera Knightley and Julianne Hough have also impressed us with their beautiful bobs.

Glee Star Cory Monteith Dead

Tragic news out of Hollywood: Glee actor Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson, has been found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, Canada, aged 31.

The actor spent Saturday night at the luxury hotel with friends, but was found dead in his room by staff on Sunday morning.

Co-star and girlfriend of two years Lea Michele has asked for privacy. “We ask that everyone kindly respect Lea’s privacy during this devastating time,” her rep said in a statement.

Fellow co-star Jane Lynch spent the day – her 53rd birthday – alone in New York, visibly upset. And another co-star, Matthew Morrison, dedicated a song to Monteith, who he called his “brother”, in his Broadway show 54 Below in New York City, on Sunday.

Glee’s executives producers released a statement: “We are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person. He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.”

Monteith had battled drug addiction, completing a month-long rehab treatment in April, with Michele standing by him.

“I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this,” she said at the time.

Following treatment, Monteith tweeted: “Sending out big love to everyone. thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me! :)”

On the same day Michele wrote: “Today is a great day 🙂 Love you all! Xo.”

The couple then celebrated with a romantic holiday in Mexico together.

An autopsy will be performed on Monday.

Get The Look: Lea Michele’s Messy Braid Hairstyle In 4 Steps

We’re loving Lea Michele’s messy braid as seen at yesterday’s FEED USA and Target party in Brooklyn – such a fun hairstyle for medium to long hair!

Lea posted a close-up of her braid on Instagram, writing: “Loving my messy braid tonight by Sarah Potempa! #NYC”

Here’s how to get the look in 4 easy steps:

1. Use the Sarah Potempa Beachwaver to curl your hair.

2. After curling, apply a sea salt hair spray to add texture, volume and hold.

3. Pull your hair to one side and braid a normal braid. After you have secured your normal braid in place, tug on random sections of the braid, allowing them to look relaxed and messy. Continue tugging until you are satisfied with the look.

4. Finish the hairstyle with hairspray to hold it all in place.
