by at . Comments

Lea Michele is featured on the cover of the latest Marie Claire Mexico.

And while the interview with the actress wouldn't have been headline-worthy a few weeks ago, the actress' words ring especially sad in light of Cory Monteith's drug overdose a few weeks ago.

"He is the best person I know," Michele told the magazine of Monteith, speaking prior to Cory's passing.

Since the tragedy, Michele has released a couple statements through her publicist, most recently saying she's "grateful for the love and support" she's received.

Other reports say she helped Monteith's family enormously during its time of need, taking charge of Monteith's memorial and cremation, among other important details.

Added the Glee star in her Marie Claire feature, gushing over her man:

"He has made my life so incredible, and I am so thankful for him and not only to have him as a partner but also as a co-worker. It is important to have someone that supports you and encourage you, someone that makes you feel that you are unstoppable, that you can do anything in the world because you have him."

Monteith reportedly showed up on the set of Michele's photo shoot, with an E! News source saying he was especially nice to everyone there.
