Lea Michele covers Marie Claire, and talks about Cory, “he is the best person I know.”

This story is a sad one. Lea Michele covers the August issue of Marie Claire Mexico. She looks incredibly hot on the cover, wearing a blazer and black undies. This is the last interview she gave before her boyfriend Cory Monteith died from a drug overdose less than two weeks ago. Sources at the magazine say Cory accompanied Lea to the shoot which took place on June 7, and during the interview she gushed about him. The editor of this magazine released a statement expressing her sadness for Lea. She said that they were so in love when they came to the shoot. She said Lea was a complete professional, and when Cory showed up she was so happy about seeing him.

Marie Claire Mexico and Latin America Editor-in-Chief Ariadne Grant said, “Lea Michele arrived early with her beauty team and her agent and was always professional, dedicated and her experience was obvious on the photo shoot but showed another side of her personality, softer and more innocent, on the interview when she got all excited with some questions, she said she loved Mexico so much. That side was even more evident when Cory showed up almost at the end of the session, she was very happy about him being there.”

Grant added, “Cory showed up in great spirits and was very nice to everybody there; he even took pictures with whoever asked for it. He just asked for a Coke and stayed there watching the shooting until it was done. They were both very nice and obviously happy and in love, we are very disrupted by the unfortunate and untimely events. Our thoughts are with Lea.”

During her interview for the magazine, Lea Michele touched on her relationship with Monteith, saying, “It’s more interesting having a relationship with someone you work with because we get more attention because we play boyfriend and girlfriend on the show and we are also in real life. But he is the best person I know, he has made my life so incredible and I am so thankful for him and not only to have him as a partner but also as a coworker.”

The young actress continued to say that in a relationship, “It is important to have someone that supports you and encourage you, someone that makes you feel that you are unstoppable, that you can do anything in the world because you have him.”

The more you hear about the two of them, the sadder it gets. They really truly seemed to be so in love. I think they just adored each other. It’s incredibly sad that Cory’s demons got the better of him. From what her friends say, the two of them were talking marriage when he died. I can’t imagine the grief she’s going through.

Olivia Munn has an anxiety disorder that makes her pull her eyelashes out!

For whatever reason, I’ve never been a huge fan of Olivia Munn. I don’t know what it is. I think she’s beautiful, she’s even a decent actress, but I just don’t consider myself a fan….

Olivia has talked before about suffering from trichotillomania, which is an anxiety disorder that causes people to pull out their own hair. Some people pull out the hair on their head, while others pull out their eyebrows and eyelashes. Olivia says she pulls out her eyelashes, and she recently opened up about how she hides it from the cameras.

It’s hard to believe when you see her confident performance on The Newsroom, but Olivia Munn suffers from anxiety so severe that it causes her to pull out her own eyelashes.

“It’s called trichotillomania,” the actress, 33, told PEOPLE Wednesday at the L’Oreal Women in Digital Awards in N.Y.C. “It’s the same thing as people who bite their nails.”

Munn’s condition, which began when she was 26, is triggered by big social situations. “If I were to walk into someone’s birthday party, I’d have a bad anxiety attack,” she admits, which in turn causes her to start lash-pulling.

Fortunately, the star’s experience in the makeup chair has given her the know-how to put together an easy fix. “I just created my own little lash-band with individuals,” she says, adding that she has a powder mix that she applies to her eyelids to help the false lashes adhere.

The rest of her beauty routine is simple: relying on “a good lip balm [she likes a Body Shop one] and a hair tie” to beat the summer heat.

And her final beauty must: Showing off her freckles. “I’ve had them since I can remember … it’s just my skin,” she tells PEOPLE. “I don’t like it when people try to cover them up!”

Miley Cyrus didn’t mean for her hair to change her life, it just did.

Miley Cyrus LOVES her haircut, and what it did for her as a person. She feels like her haircut changed her life. I don’t know if it was the hair that changed her life – or if she changed around the same time she cut her hair, but who knows. She certainly is not the same person she used to be with her longer, brown hair. She’s gone all sorts of crazy on us. Walking around without pants, a bra, you name it!

Miley sat down with the Toronto Sun and talked about her hair, her new music video for “We Can’t Stop,” being named #1 on the Maxim Hot 100 list and more!

Don’t take her so seriously: “People don’t realize actually how pun-ny it is when I’m doing things. They’re like, ‘It really feels like you can’t stop.’ ‘It is!’ … What is making my (new) record consistent is the fact that (the songs are) all different and that’s where I am. I’m at a point where it’s like I know who I am, but I’m know that I’m not finished figuring that out and I won’t finished be until I’m in the dirt.”

Her “We Can’t Stop” video: “People are watching like, ‘Cute cat plays with yarn,’ for three hours a lot more than they’re watching anyone else’s music video. And it’s because it makes them happy, it makes them laugh, whatever. So I wanted my video to make people laugh ‘cause I’m the first one to make jokes at myself. My godmother is Dolly Parton who is constantly making fun of herself. She’s like, ‘It takes a lot of money to look this cheap, honey.’ … I wanted the video to be that kind of confident.”

Her hair: “No one would have planned a haircut to change my life. I didn’t plan a haircut to change my life. I just cut my hair and then it really changed my life. There’s something about having no hair that it screams being confident. And I think especially because people like to put people in a box, I mean the names I’ve been called since I cut my hair.”

She was called a lesbian: “Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse.’ I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.”

#1 on Maxim’s list: “People think short hair, they think tom boy … and I’ve obviously done the opposite ’cause when I cut my hair, I did my first Maxim cover where I got No. 1 (in their annual hot list). And it wasn’t about me being the sexiest. It was about the fans voting. But it’s something I loved. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Maxim cover with a girl with short hair.”

I don’t know if her hair deserves all the credit for her transformation. She just grew up – right? She’s becoming a woman and figuring out who she is – and for that – I commend her. I may not understand her 90% of the time, but she’s just finding herself. Who cares what she does to her hair – or what she wears. She can’t be a role model for young girls her whole life – can you imagine the pressure?


Sofia Vergara opens up in the new Harper’s Bazaar: “I don’t believe in a natural look, unless you’re Gisele Bundchen”

Sofia Vergara, who celebrated 41st birthday this week, graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s August cover and kicks off season three of “The Look,” talking curves, favorite designers, and eating the world’s most expensive ice cream sundae with host and executive editor Laura Brown.

Is it ever a bit exhausting, being a bombshell 24 hours a day? She shakes her head. “No. I’m Latin; I do it no matter what. It’s automatic. I shower, do hair and makeup. For me, it’s like shaving. I don’t believe in a natural look. Lipstick brightens your face! Unless you’re Gisele Bündchen or 19, you need something.”

On her Hermès Birkin bag collection: “I tell [my son] Manolo, ‘If I don’t have enough money for your college this month, you have to sell the Birkins.’” She tells her business manager, “What would you prefer? Me popping champagne bottles and doing drugs and wasting money or buying bags? These are valuable. These, Manolo can sell!’”

On her role in Modern Family: “I don’t think there’s ever going to be a better part for me,” she says. “But I do think—and my son and boyfriend agree with me—that I could play a crazy psychopath. I’m not joking.”

On her boyfriend, Nick Loeb: “He’s really handsome. He’s six foot four, and he has blue eyes and a lot of black hair.” Vergara pauses. “Or it used to be black. Now it’s got a lot of white in it. Nick says all the white hair came from me.”

While their marriage plans are under wraps for now, the pair divide their time between a Manhattan apartment and one on the Wilshire Corridor in Los Angeles, which they use when Vergara is filming. “I’m very independent, so it’s been a process for me, learning to live with somebody,” she admits.
