i saw a shooting star and thought of you.

Life & Style Monchele article

Smiling, giggling and holding hands, Glee co-stars Cory Monteith and Lea Michele played the part of lovesick teenagers to a tee on Feb. 14. But the enamored duo weren’t acting— there was no director there to yell “Cut!” after Cory tenderly fed his valentine spaghetti, and Lea reciprocated by affectionately rubbing her date’s back at romantic restaurant Il Covo in LA. Three years after rumors first swirled about the McKinley High sweethearts getting cozy off-screen, Lea, 25 and Cory, 29, have finally taken their relationship to the next level. “They were into each other all night,”  reveals an Il Covo employee. “She was very happy, flirting and touching Cory a lot. He just stared at her with puppy-dog eyes.”

Scared to Fall

The lovebirds’ chemistry has been undeniable from the start. But wary Lea’s never been one to mix business and pleasure by dating a co-star. “For me, if it was going to happen with anybody, it would have happened with Cory,” she admitted in 2011. “[Still] I’m glad nothing has ever happened, because it would have ruined something if it didn’t work out.” Indeed, when dating castmates Mark Salling and Naya Rivera split up, it made for an unpleasantly tense atmosphere on set— Naya even reportedly keyed Mark’s car. And since they’re the show’s main stars, if Cory and Lea have a nasty breakup, it could spell disaster for the hit series. Neither actor wants that. “[Glee’s] been a great opportunity, gushes Cory. “I’ll do as many seasons as they’ll have me.”

Taking the Leap

But sometimes you just can’t fight the feelings. Grueling 16-hour days and an infectious engagement plotline have brought the duo closer than ever. “As long as I get to have scenes with Cory, it makes me really happy,” raves Lea. “I love pretending like he’s my boyfriend. It’s so fun.” Now she no longer has to play make-believe. The couple were also spotted on a date at the Ritz-Carlton on Feb. 17. “Cory is totally into her,” confesses a Glee crew member. So Mr. Right may have been under Lea’s nose all along. As terrifying as it can be, she just needed to open her eyes and her heart and let love in. “Cory is amazing,” she sighs. “He’s fantastic.”

And the pictures on the bottom are under the headline "It’s Been a Long Journey to Love" and

-there’s one from an old photoshoot for Life and Style that the cast did and the caption says “Sparks flew…Cory and Lea were still getting to know each other on the set of Life & Style’s 2009 Glee fashion shoot.”

-one with Lea & Theo that says “She was attached…but lea only had eyes for longtime beau Theo Stockman.”

-and another with Cory and TSwift that says, “He waited…Cory kept himself busy by wooing Taylor Swift in 2010 and dating models.”

-and the caption on the picture of them says, “Meant to be…after Lea’s split from Theo in September, the actress and Cory were caught canoodling on set in November. The stars’ reps didn’t respond when asked for comment.”

and that’s all!
