Lea Michele remembers Cory Monteith on 32nd birthday

Lea Michele posted a heartwarming photo on Sunday -- which would have been Cory Monteith's 32nd birthday.

Michele and Monteith co-starred together on "Glee" and were in a relationship before his death last July. The actor died following an overdose of heroin and alcohol in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada.

"I only have happy memories of Cory. He was not his addiction -- unfortunately, it won," she told Seventeen magazine in a story for its April 2014 issue. "But that wasn't who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, 'I'm your boyfriend,' I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful."
