Lea Michele pays tribute to Cory Monteith one year after his death

By Jorie Goins,

Today marks one year since the tragic death of Glee actor Cory Monteith. His co-star and former girlfriend Lea Michele did not let the day pass without paying tribute to the actor.

Lea shared a picture of her and Cory Monteith at the beach in front of a sunset on Instagram. The actress also tweeted another picture, this time of Monteith by himself with a heartfelt message saying, “We hold you in our hearts today, and every day we remember your smile. We will love you and miss you always.”

Cory Monteith died last year at the age of 31 of an accidental overdose of heroin and alcohol. Monteith had repeatedly tried to kick his drug habit and was reported to have entered rehab in the months before his passing, according to Entertainment Wise.

According to Entertainment Wise, Lea Michele has recently started publicly dating new boyfriend Matthew Paetz. Lea also used yoga as a coping method for dealing with Monteith’s death. She said in an interview with Glamour Magazine UK, “You get tired of physically feeling so horrendous, so I started doing yoga, which really helped. Now I feel a little bit more back together and I have this blank canvas in front of me, which is what my life can be.”
