She’s always been a voice for her fellow females and Lea Michele just jumped on board on behalf of the #ActuallySheCan initiative.
The “Glee” actress posted a sassy snapshot of herself holding a sign with the #ActuallySheCan hash tag and the “You Shine, I Shine” slogan. Lea wrote, “Let’s do this! Support and celebrate. What does #ActuallySheCan mean to you? #Strength #Solidarity #Ad.”
In July 2013, Cory Monteith tragically passed away and earlier today (July 13) Lea Michele posted a touching remembrance of her former co-star/boyfriend.
The “Glee” gal posted a photograph of Monteith driving a car with the sunset in the background, along with the message, “Today we remember the laughter and joy you brought into our lives every day. We think of you always and love you so.”
You’re gonna need to the tissues for this one, Gleeks. The cast of “Glee” finished shooting the show’s final season this weekend, but Lea Michele couldn't leave the set without taking one very special item.
The 28-year-old actress took the No. 5 jersey worn by Finn, her character’s on-screen sweetheart played by her off-screen love, the late Cory Monteith. Leah shared a picture of herself walking away with the memento along with the caption, “One last thing.”
