Lea Michele has proven that she and Kate Hudson are close friends after Kate let her stay at her house following Cory Monteith’s death.
Kate welcomed Lea and her family into her home to escape the crowd of photographers outside her house, which is pretty impressive considering they only know each other from Kate’s guest role on Glee.
“I called her and said, I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters.] She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing,” Lea reveals to Elle US magazine.
The actress, who plays Rachel Berry on the show, continues, “She let my family stay there, and any of my friends. She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favorite juices. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”
Kate Hudson played Rachel’s dance teacher, Cassandra July, for five episodes in series four. Cassandra hated Rachel and made her time at NAYDA theatre school miserable.
I am so surprised that she called Kate first in the aftermath of Cory’s death but it’s a good job she did, considering how amazing Kate was! What a sweetheart!
The actress also revealed that she and Cory briefly dated at the beginning of Glee but nobody noticed. Then, in 2011, “We just looked at each other and we were like, ‘You wanna do this?’ We knew,” shares the star.
Just hearing about how they met makes me sad. Bless her!
