Michele ‘a very steady hand’ for Monteith

Lea Michele and Cory Monteith

Actor Cory Monteith’s girlfriend and Glee co-star Lea Michele is proving to be “an excellent influence” on him following his recent entry into rehab.

The stars have been an item since last year after developing a close relationship on their TV series Glee.

Cory, 30, entered himself into a rehabilitation centre on his own volition last week.

Apparently Lea has been a pillar of support throughout.

"Lea is an excellent influence on him. She's good for him," a source told People magazine.

"She's really calmed him. She would have been very supportive and encouraging for him to seek treatment. It seems like she is a very steady hand."

Cory has been open about his past substance abuse issues, having visited rehab previously at the age of 19.

People in Lea and Cory’s milieu describe the couple as “low-key” and have never seen them recklessly drinking with one another.

"The two of them drank together, but drank in a way that seemed to be responsible," an insider detailed. "They both seemed in control and not messy."

It appears their love for each other will see them through this rough patch.

By most accounts Cory and Lea are absolutely smitten with each other.

"They seem to compliment each other's personalities very well," another source said. "They are always very affectionate and sweet to each other. Cory acts very protective of Lea."
