Cory Monteith’s Death Still Difficult To Discuss For Sophia Bush

True for many of us.

Sophia Bush, host of this week’s VH1’s Do Something Awards, spoke softly and smartly recently about last year’s Do Something winner in the Male TV Star category — the late Cory Monteith.

The actress said of the Glee star, who died of a drug overdose earlier this month:

"I don't know how to phrase it because you don't want to say you're expecting that from anyone, but sadly I think there are some people who we watch as they sort of unravel, and if something like that were to happen, you'd be sad but not necessarily shocked. You'd just be so sad that they never got help…. It's, I think, more emotional for the people who knew and loved him because he was working toward that. He had just gone to get help."

Cory had battled drug addiction since his teen years, and had been completed another stay in rehab just months before his death.

The Do Something Awards honors both celebrities and non-celebrities who have committed to making change in their worlds.

Cory took home his winged sneaker last year for his work with Richard Branson’s Virgin Unite, helping homeless teens and participating in theater programs for underprivileged youth.

We appreciate Sophia’s reminding us not only of the change Cory helped bring to the world, but the change all of us have the potential to manifest.

Do Something!

    I read the article for the meaning. That's what is important to me. Another person stepping forward to say what a lovely, kind and giving person Cory was and lost his life to a terrible addicting drug. Don't tell me that he didn't fight because he did. In the end, I truly believe that he needed more support and he did not get t. That is how addiction is. Keep them safe from themselves because for the time being they have lost that ability.

    a junkie OD'd and now everyone makes tries to make him some sort of a saint just because he happened to be on some tv show.

    I think there's a big difference between a person wanting to go and going on their own to get help and one being forced by family, friends and co-workers to go get help. From everything I've read it does not sound like Cory himself chose to go to rehab… it sounds like he was forced into going by Ryan Murphy, Lea Michele and others. Now, I'm not saying this doesn't mean he didn't ultimately want to get better and I'm not saying this as anything against Murphy or Michele, because who among us wouldn't force a loved one to get help? But history has shown that forcing someone to go to rehab does not work. In order for a person to truly get better (and even then it's not always 100%) it has to be THEIR choice. It has to be that person coming to the conclusion that they need help. Not someone else. I just honestly don't know that Cory was there yet.

    Re: elvis – have some respect. He tried to fight through it, he just couldn't. The fact that he did OD shouldn't define him. The good he did in the world should.

    I don't really think it's her place to say anything, considering I doubt she knew him well.
