  • I don’t want kids to think it’s O.K. to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too. But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it.
  • I think if you show up and you work hard and you’re straightforward, you can always create your own opportunities. I hope I’m right.
  • I want to get married and have children and live happily ever after. That’s important to me.
  • At some point, you realize your parents are human. They make the best decisions they can with the options available to them.
  • I’m Canadian, but no, I don’t speak French.
  • But when the Glee (2009) audition came around, my manager literally had to talk me into it. I was petrified to sing in front of anyone.
  • How do I put this? Glee (2009) is like High School Musical (2006) if “High School Musical” had its stomach punched and its lunch money stolen.
  • I don’t need to be wildly famous for my life to make sense.
  • I don’t read that many novels, I’m more of a nonfiction fan.
  • I keep a pretty low profile. I live in Culver City with some roommates. I don’t do the whole ‘Hollywood’ thing.
  • I like Lady Gaga!
  • I play a lot of ultra-violent video games.
  • I probably tweet every other day, which I know isn’t half as much as some people.
  • I say eat fast and die young.
  • I used to do tech support for MSN in Canada.
  • I’m a cat whisperer. When I go to people’s houses, their cats always like me better than the owners.
  • I’m a pretty good snowboarder but a terrible surfer.
  • I’m Joe Canada, who never went to high school. I’ve never even been to a football game.
  • I’m lucky on so many counts – I’m lucky to be alive.
  • I’m pretty focused on my career, and if it comes down to hanging out with somebody or learning my lines, it’s gonna be learning my lines.
  • I’m really pale.
  • I’ve been very inspired by Virgin’s model of business as a force for good.
  • If people are taking pictures of me at Starbucks, it’s not the end of the world. It’s cool, it’s fun, it’s exciting.
  • It’s really annoying when you’re trying to get to know someone and she doesn’t pay attention to you because she’s obsessed with her phone.
  • I have a solo deal with Columbia Records. So it’s about, do I want to release an album, when can we do it, what kind of album should it be, how should it be released and marketed and what’s the right timing? Do I have time to do it? It’s all about questions.
  • I like the idea of dating, but I’m not dating anyone exclusively, particularly right now. It’s hard to be in a relationship unless you’re ready to go public with it. So it’s a lot easier for me to not be in a relationship. I really don’t want that part of my life to be tabloid fodder.
  • I recently had a few days off while shooting a movie in Budapest, so I took a cab from the set to the airport, looked at the departure board, and decided where I wanted to go right then and there. I spent four days in Rome and didn’t tell anyone I was going.
  • I remember I’d come home from fifth, sixth grade, and I’d watch Saved by the Bell (1989) and be like, “I hope my high school experience is like that”. And it totally wasn’t. It sucked.
  • I see the people in the tabloids, the ones that get bad press, who have kind of gone off the edge, and I try to study them so that I don’t do that. It seems like they lost focus at some point – that’s the one thing they all have in common.
  • I stole a significant amount of money from a family member. I knew I was going to get caught, but I was so desperate I didn’t care. It was a cry for help.
  • I think having worked in a department store setting, if my life had not taken a drastically different turn when I became an actor, there’s a very high probability I would have continued to work at the department store.
  • I took out a whole fireplace and put in broken glass and installed a burner underneath, so it looks like fire on ice. I did that in my bedroom suite. I’m pretty handy.
  • I was 20 years old, working as a roofer and a telemarketer and driving a taxi, just barely getting by. A friend of a friend suggested I try acting. I was like, ‘Why? What am I going to do? Community theater?’ But I took a class, and the teacher thought that I had potential, so I moved to Vancouver and started auditioning.
  • I was dirt-poor. I could barely hold down a job. Eventually, though, I started getting small parts on shows like Smallville (2001), Supernatural (2005)… and lots of really bad sci-fi movies. I was running around the woods in wolf contacts, covered in fake blood made out of pancake syrup, roaring.
  • I’ll go out, but I leave early, before the shenanigans. I don’t really do the Hollywood party thing. I’d rather watch sports or play video games or work out or sleep, to be totally honest.
  • I’m a big fan of Glee (2009). I think it’s really smart. And I think it’s well-timed. But you can’t not be surprised at the reception this show’s received. It’s really something else.
  • I’ve worked as a labourer, driven taxis and school buses, and been a car mechanic – whatever I could do just to get by. But it does mean that I know a little bit about a lot of things.
  • It’s always exciting to explore adult roles when the vast majority of viewers that have seen me on TV know me from Glee (2009), from something of a different tone.
  • Maybe it’ll be like The Simpsons (1989), and everybody will remain unchanged. Maybe that’s what Glee (2009)’s about. Maybe this is kind of a stasis show. I don’t know.


  • Some of his ashes were given to friend and co-star Kevin Zegers. The two worked on the movie All the Wrong Reasons (2013) which was released in November.
  • Lea Michele added two songs to her debut album after Cory’s death. One, called “Cannonball,” will be her first single off of the album. The second song, “If You Say So,” is the last thing he said to her.
  • Lea Michele Told ELLE Magazine that Cory’s last words to her were “if you say so.” During her first red carpet appearance since his death, those words were visible tattooed on her ribcage.
  • Left rehab and reunited with Lea Michele at LAX. [April 2013]
  • Entered rehab for substance addiction. [March 2013]
  • Died July 13, 2013, in a hotel room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He was 31.
  • On July 16, 2013, the British Columbia coroner’s office released a report that concluded that Monteith died from “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.” The report also said “there is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident.”.
