please everybody, if you are actually seeing darren tomorrow, leave him space and don’t force him into signing stuff or even talking if he doesn’t want to. he has still lost a friend and co-worker, and only because he’s strong enough to make an interwiew, it doesn’t mean he’s completely okay.
“When I appeared as myself on ‘Glee,’” James Lipton said, “I auditioned Cory’s character, Finn, for the Actors Studio Drama School – and rejected him. That’s the way Ryan Murphy wrote it. I would have admitted him – in a New York minute. Of course you’ll want to know how Cory responded when I asked him the question, ‘If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?’ Cory’s God said, ‘Uh, sorry I haven’t been around. There’s a good explanation.’ I certainly hope there is. We needed Cory’s gifts.”—Bravo Media Remembers Cory Monteith by Re-Aring His Appearance on ‘Inside the Actor’s Studio’ (via coffeegleek)
“When something like this happens, it’s so sad and tragic… it’s just sad and tragic. The upside of it, I can’t even talk about because there is no upside to this man losing his life.”—Matthew Perry on Cory (via littlegleeprincess)
There are no words. Truly. Cory was a great person, and although there’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said…I just want to say how much I’ll miss him. Glee will never be the same again without him. Goodbye, Cory. We love you.
If you came to this story hoping for more details about how and why Cory Monteithis no longer with us, you are in the wrong place.
If you are a fan seeking comfort that some members of the press are grieving just as much as you, this is for you.
This is a personal account from one of the (many) reporters who covered Glee since it began, written solely because I can’t stop crying over the news, and feel the need to tell you fans that you are not alone in your devastation.
We have covered celebrity deaths before. This one is different.
From the producers and cast and crew and fans on the street to, yes, even the reporters who covered the show, it seems that in Cory’s time in Hollywood, no one really ever had a single bad word to say about the guy.
In case you don’t know a whole lot about this town, that doesn’t happen.
At every Glee press event, from before the show first aired until it became an award-winning success, Monteith was kind and respectful, carefully listening to questions, giving thoughtful and playful answers, and never taking himself too seriously.
If you asked your 18 millionth question about Finn and Rachel, he would smile and do his absolute best to give you something the fans would appreciate hearing.
If you wanted to snap a selfie with him, he wouldn’t just oblige, he would tell you some fun little tricks on how to make you looks the best (“Who cares about me?”) and keep snapping photos until he thought the pic did you justice.
And I will never forget that during my first visit to the Glee set in season one, as we watched a performance scene in which Cory was sweating buckets and giving every ounce of everything he had, one of the producers turned to me and said, “No one works harder than Cory. No one. He is everything this show is about.”
There are no words for how much he will be missed.
I hope the cast is okay. Like, we make them out to be superheros, but as we’ve seen tonight they are just human and Cory was their best friend and frankly family. I hope they are genuinely okay and not alone.
My mother is extremely unaccepting. I am a female-to-male transgender, and she blatantly refuses to allow me any room to be myself. She pushes girly things on me, tells me she’ll never let me dress the way I want, and so on, and so forth.
If you think that I should be allowed to be who I am, please reblog this.
Send love and pray for urls matchly and frappacinofee they are wonderful people and people are sending them anon hate and they are being pressured and convinced to commit suicide. Please send out words of love even if you don’t know them- they need them.
STOP THINKING ABOUT FINCHEL’S FUTURE FOR TWO SECONDS AND THINK ABOUT CORY’S FUTURE BECAUSE CORY IS A REAL LIVE PERSON IN A REAL LIVE BAD SITUATION AND HONESTLY IT ISN’T ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR CORY’S HEALTH
So this is king of a spontaneous decision, but I’m not going to be posting on this blog anymore. I don’t have time to maintain two blogs anymore, and my interests have deviated enough that I don’t have much interest in posting here anymore. I loved being on this blog, though, and all the people…
So this is king of a spontaneous decision, but I’m not going to be posting on this blog anymore. I don’t have time to maintain two blogs anymore, and my interests have deviated enough that I don’t have much interest in posting here anymore. I loved being on this blog, though, and all the people I’ve talked to and friends I’ve made (and lost, unfortunately) but it’s not the right place for me anymore. Message me of sure if you want the link to my personal blog, though, which comes across as fandom-y but technically isn’t.
