BACK TO REHAB
Sitting down with the cast and crew for lunch on the set of his FOX series Glee
last month, Cory Monteith
seemed his usual friendly, outgoing self. "They were laughing and telling jokes. It looked like he was goofing off with friends," says an onlooker. Just three weeks later, even the actor's close pals were stunned to learn that Monteith, 30, had voluntarily checked himself in to rehab for substance addiction. "He didn't look like he was under the influence at all; he was very professional," adds the set source. "He looked like a normal guy at work, doing what he loves."
Tragically, addiction is nothing new to the actor, who has admitted that he struggled with alcohol and drug abuse as a teen growing up in Victoria, B.C., went through an intervention and entered rehab at age 19. At his lowest point, he stole money from a family member for drugs. "I was done fighting myself," he told Parade
in 2011. "I finally said, 'I'm gonna start looking at my life and figure out why I'm doing this.'"
Sources say the actor's girlfriend of a year (and Glee
costar) Lea Michele
, 26, had influenced him to stop hanging out with his more hard-partying pals. And with her support, Monteith is once again focused on his sobriety—and future. "Such a beautiful day! truly seeing the forest for the trees. #gratitude," he Tweeted March 28. As he told Parade
,"I'm lucky on so many counts. I'm lucky to be alive."
