“I sometimes follow the Natalie Portman rule — I’m vegan in my home and vegetarian outside. I do that when I’m in New York a lot. Because when my grandmother makes me baked ziti, she would smack me in the face if I didn’t have it.”
'Glee' Offscreen: How Amber Riley Helped Lea Michele Through Cory Monteith’s Death
Actress Lea Michelle was honored last night at the L’Oreal Paris Women of Worth 2013 event in NYC, where the “Glee” star opened up to “Extra’s” AJ Calloway about how she has been coping since the death of boyfriend Cory Monteith.
Michele revealed her “Glee” co-star Amber Riley holds a special place in her heart for her support this last year. “I’ve got to give a shout out to Miss Amber Riley, ‘Dancing with the Stars’ winner… she’s the best. I love her so much, so proud of her… she’s been there for me so much through everything.”
Lea also said she will spend her first Christmas without Monteith with her mom and dad. “We’re just going to do something with the three of us and spend time. I have the most incredible family, my dear friends are always there for me. They’re wonderful. I’m so thankful for them.”
