Lea Michele hasn't spoken publicly about up her late co-star/boyfriend Cory Monteith since his death two weeks ago, but the star did open up about their love in a Marie Claire Mexico interview just a month prior. There's no doubt: The two were really happy and in love before he passed away.

The Glee star raved about her man: “He is the best person I know. 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."

She added: “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.”

The magazine article is due out on newsstands next week, and, of course, the editor-in-chief Ariadne Grant addressed Monteith's death in a statement.

“Lea Michele arrived early with her beauty team and her agent and was always professional, dedicated and her experience was obvious on the photo shoot but showed another side of her personality, softer and more innocent, on the interview when she got all excited with some questions, she said she loved Mexico so much. That side was even more evident when Cory showed up almost at the end of the session, she was very happy about him being there.
Cory showed up in great spirits and was very nice to everybody there; he even took pictures with whoever asked for it. He just asked for a Coke and stayed there watching the shooting until it was done. They were both very nice and obviously happy and in love, we are very disrupted by the unfortunate and untimely events. Our thoughts are with Lea.”
