Cory Monteith and Lea Michele met on the set of the hit Fox musical television series Glee, before becoming romantically involved. Cory and Lea have been dating for quite a while now but Cory has admitted that he actually felt very intimidated when he met Lea for the first time.
Monteith explained, "The first impression I had when I met Lea was, I was intimidated. Honestly, I was." He then turned to Lea and added, "I was intimidated because you are very talented. I heard about this Lea Michele Sarfati, so I went on YouTube and looked at all these videos of you performing on stage, and when I met you, I was nervous. She just kind of had a different energy than everyone else there."
Meanwhile, Lea said of Cory being cast in the role of Finn, "Cory was cast really late in the process. Like eight days before we started. All of a sudden we have this guy come into work one day and they're like 'here's Finn' and I was like: 'yes thank God that's exactly what Finn Hudson looks like."
In past interviews and reports, it seems that Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were destined to be together. There have been claims that their onscreen chemistry was so strong, that it was almost impossible for them to ignore it, while Cory has admitted that he has always had feelings for Lea. Awww!!
