It's been a while since we've seen Cory Monteith out and about. The Glee star, who recently completed his stint in rehab for substance abuse, made his first big red carpet appearance Saturday night at the 12th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball. With girlfriend Lea Michele on his arm, the couple looked happy as can be. In fact, Michele had NO problem gushing about being back out and about with her boo.
"I think he looks great, doesn't he?" she asked. "He's the best."
It's so great to see the two McKinley lovebirds back in the spotlight together, and I agree with Lea, he does look great. Heck, the guy looks hot in that suit!! It seems like, finally, Cory is in a good place. Something tells me that this is the beginning of another great chapter for him.
Cory left rehab at the end of April. Since then, he has been spotted heading out on vacation with Lea, and well, that's about it. Now that he's stepping back into the spotlight, there's no denying he's in a better place, and I wouldn't doubt that so much of that has to do with the overwhelming amount of support he gets from his girlfriend, cast mates, and family.
So could this mean that it's time for a new project? I sure hope so. Don't get me wrong, Cory and Glee are a great fit and I'm sure the scripts will bring him back in full force come season 5 (let's go Finchel!). But who wouldn't love to see Monteith take on something new? Maybe now is the time for a big screen venture. Maybe something serious. Something where he takes his shirt off, preferably.
Are you happy to see Cory back out and about? Do you think he looks good?
