cory monteith adam shankman upbeat before death convo

It's just so sad and confusing.

We don't know exactly what happened with Cory Monteith, but his sudden passing has left many saddened and shocked.

One who is especially surprised by this news is Adam Shankman, who guest directed episodes of Glee. He had apparently just recently spoken with Cory not long before his death, and it all seemed great with the actor!

Adam revealed to CNN's Poppy Harlow what was said when he talked to Cory:

"I had several interactions with him yesterday where he said that he was doing amazing. He even said I am feeling fantastic … I'm like everybody else, really devastated and confused by what happened."

He also revealed Cory had told him he was excited to get back to California to do some jet skiing.

This news surely leaves many even more devastated and full of questions.

Our thoughts are with those closest to Cory.

    I am devastated and I didn't know him personally. My heart cries and I can't imagine how Lea Michele feels right now. The shock is crushing. They were inseparable and always smiling embracing each other.
    Why? How could this happen… what happened?!
    They were apart…. why? How long?
    Those who were with him that Friday night… why was he back so late in the morning and ALONE?! Was it worth it… whatever he did that night. Who was the last to speak with him? Dying all alone in a hotel room is just sad. Did he need help?
    I will miss him deeply on GLEE and his smile… he was a good looking guy with a beautiful Lea by his side. RIP Cory… may you sing heavenly with the angles. My thoughts and prayers go out to Lea, his family and all who loved him on the screen and in person.

    He left us to soon. :(

    I think his inner demons wouldn't let him accept the possibility that he is gay. His addiction helped mask that… overdosing ends it.

    Re: UcantBserious – WTF???? who are you??? Why are you trying to tarnish Cory's reputation. Inner Demons you say ~ perhaps you need to look a little deeper insider yourself before you go pointing a finger - and - so what if he was gay - in todays day and age, why would that bother him - perhpas it is you that need to express your tendancies and are cloaking them with Cory's death. What is wrong with you - cant you let it be? He loved Lea, she loved him - and for the rest - well I speak for myself and others - we loved him gay or no!!!

    assuming, as has been reported, the death is caused by an overdose. He is just another junkie who chose to get high again and died as a result. Happens everyday.

    So why are you posting about him having several conversations with a gay guy right before he died? Are you insinuating something? The guy has passed away. Let him rest in peace.

    I didn't know Cory personally, but he was such an inspiration on Glee and I adored him & Lea together. It is devistating as a fan and I can't imaging the hurt and sadness his friends and family are facing. We all know he was fighting with addiction and it isn't easy and he was in Vancover working with Project Limelight. I feel for Lea because she will have to put on a brave face and have paparazzi swarming like usual…RIP dear Cory Monteith is just is way too soon….

    Re: shocked and saddened – He was an addict…addicts lie and manipulate to be alone so that they can use…You should not have to babysit this guy…he made choices and should have been sober based on the help that is out there…Addicts are very selfish and cause a lot of pain.

  9. truth says – reply to this


    Re: UcantBserious – Not all gay people are troubled…being gay or lesbian is wonderful…laws are showing equality…People today should be more comfortable whith who they are…he was an addict…a liar, a manipulator…many of you have to idea what hell it is to deal with an addict…behind that innocent face was a sick sick man….

  10. Dan says – reply to this


    Yep, Adam making that statement "I had several interactions with him yesterday…" will lead people to believe that Cory was gay. I'm sure that's what Perez wanted people to think when he posted this.

    Re: shocked and saddened – Wow. You need a life. You are seriously pathetic. Get help.
    Re: truth – Being gay or lesbian is GROSS. It is deviant behavior and is just nasty. You homos need to paint it as wonderful because you can't change what you are but it's gross.
    Re: ALEXIA – Oh please. Lea Manface will milk the fuck out of this because she's an egomaniac asshole. She'll have a FANTASTIC time getting all teary for the cameras, talking up her "lost love," and generally being a dumb bitch about it.
    Drug overdose. Dude did it to himself. Possibly to escape the nasty jewbag he'd gotten involved with while out-of-his-mind high.

  12. 12

    Ay Mario, you are sick, you had not change a bit! same crapo with your twisted manipulative posts, makes me think that all gay people are really sick.
    Poor Lea, she is the real victim here, addicts lie, is very difficult to overcome, he was fighting this since his teens, she doesn't deserve to suffer like this. RIP Cory

    It's sad when someone as sweet as Cory is taken too soon when there's so many pathetic assholes (some who comment on this site) who deserve execution for some of their disgusting comments.

  14. anonymous says – reply to this


    Why would this Adam Shankman be surprised? Cory was not planning to die in a few hours. He took too many drugs later and the result was death. He was probably clean from Rehab, then took the same amount of drugs he was used to in the past and it turned into a massive overdose that killed him.

  15. Random Commenter says – reply to this


    People saying he brought this upon himself are nothing but cruel. And even if he did, he's paid the ultimate price for it. Cory had a rough upbringing, and clearly he struggled to fight with the demons with his past. It's heartbreaking that he had to pass this way. I hope he finds happiness in the afterlife, and send prayers to poor Lea and his family. Cory inspired people to be themselves on Glee, and I hope his death maybe not inspires, but influences other kids to steer clear of drugs. RIP.

    Re: raypearson

    Addicts do not choose to get high. That is what addiction is. They have no choices.

    Re: Pansy Hunter
    " Being gay or lesbian is GROSS."
    So which one are you, gay or lesbian, because you're the grossest thing on here, and the shit you spew from your fingers shows how much more deviant you are than anyone on here you claim is.

  21. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    Well…of course he was 'upbeat' - HE WAS H i g h ! ! ! !

  22. 22

    I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't from drugs. Maybe heart failure from past abuse. My heart goes out to his family. My x husband suffered from addiction and wound up dying unexpectedly and he was clean at the time. He did have other medical issues as well tho. High blood pressure not taking his meds didn't help. Rip Cory :(

    That really sad that he died like that….he was good life and he was a good actor in glee… I am going to miss so much….😔😔😭😭😭

  25. Kat says – reply to this


    They have not done a autopsy yet so people need to wait for that to come out before jumping to conclusions. We do not know how he died.. all "sources" are speculation until the autopsy is complete.

  26. 26

    I never would've pinned this guy to be someone on drugs.

  27. 27

    hes so clean looking its hard to beleive he would die this way but drugs kill anyone no matter who they are .. RIP…

    awful stuff

    Re: raypearson – TOTALLY agree with you raypearson

  31. my heart hurts says – reply to this


    when i first heard of this news i was so shocked and wished that all of this was just a hoax or a joke and a part of me still believes it is because it's too much of a shock. I remember seeing him in GLEE and suddenly my mind has flashbacks of him especially in the pilot of the show. it really hurts to see someone who inspires me so much just leave this world so suddenly. i can't imagine how hiw family and friends and especially lea would feel about this news. R.I.P Cory! you are one true talented gentlemen and i keep my promise to always support GLEE not matter what

  32. 32

    Of course he was upbeat and said he was feelin amazing and wants to go skiing! he was high!!

  33. 33

    ADAM SHANKMAN REVEALS HIMSELF AS THE PATHETIC NO-TALENT FAME WHORE HE TRULY IS. What a complete and utter douche. Although I will give him credit for stepping up to whore himself and Cory's death out. Normally he's too busy fucking up decent scripts with his horrifically bd directing. Adam is the perfect example of a self-absorbed, fame-whoring Hollywood DOUCHE.

    Just like Robert Downey Jr in the movie LESS THAN ZERO.

    Re: jc – To "PansyHunter"; You are about the SICKEST, MOST OBNOXIOUS person I have ever seen! You are so full of hate that you are just DISGUSTING, AND JUST EMBARRASING YOURSELF! Oh, and before you attack me, and try to say that I am gay, I have been married, and have children, and am not gay, but it wouldn't matter if I was! There is a special place reserved in HELL for you my ftiend!
