Mark Salling attended the Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas on Saturday, April 6, where he opened up about his Glee costar Cory Monteith's recent check-in to rehab.
It was previously reported that 30-year-old Monteith entered rehab for substance abuse on April 1, his rep stating that he “has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery."
30-year-old Salling, who plays Puck on the show, gives his friend and costar credit for sharing his struggle with the public, stating, "It takes balls . . . to go through that publicly. Period. It takes balls to go through that privately, but to go through it publicly like that -- balls," reports US Weekly.
Salling also says that the rest of the cast have been incredibly supportive, sending Cory "nice texts" and tweets "here and there."
Monteith's costar and real-life girlfriend, 26-year-old Lea Michele, who plays Rachel on the show, also gave a statement regarding his substance addiction and plans to stand by him 100%. "I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this. I am grateful and proud he made this decision," reports US Weekly.
