When Cory Monteith died at just 31 due to a mixture of alcohol and heroin, Lea Michele turned to a famous friend for help.

"I called [Kate Hudson] and said, 'I don't know where I'm going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters].' She was like, 'Oh, you're going to stay at my house.' Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there," Michele says in the December issue of ELLE.

Monteith, who was only 31 when he died July 13 from a mixture of alcohol and heroin, had already shot appearances in the season's first two episodes – those, a salute to the Beatles, were re-edited leading up to last night's memorial. They constituted one of the most melancholy salutes to the Beatles I've ever heard, with Monteith's death coloring everything.
