Cory Monteith's Ashes Shared With Friend Kevin Zegers

Sad, sad.

Kevin Zegers, one of Cory Monteith’s friends and final co-stars, recently opened up to Bello magazine about the Glee star’s tragic passing.

It turns out Kevin was in Vancouver when news broke of Cory’s accidental overdose — he said:

“There was a group of us who were there for the whole finding out up until now, and it’s been very, very strange.”

The actor revealed that he’d even brought back some of Cory’s ashes on his return to Los Angeles. He explained:

“He’s probably the closest person I’ve ever lost… It was a heavy and weird month. Cory was the nicest man I knew. It’s a f***ing horrible disease.”

Kevin, clearly still trying to make sense of the event, added:

“By the grace of God, I’m not dead… I think it’s something that constantly reveals itself as something that happens to people who, for whatever reason, don’t get well, and it was by no lack of him trying or anyone else trying to help him get well. Eventually, your body just says, ‘No, it’s enough.’ But it doesn’t make it any less sad or tragic. I think the problem people had was that he looked healthy and he never showed the struggles he was having.”

Just horrible.

Kevin, it sounds like you were a wonderful friend.

    "Kevin, it sounds like you were a wonderful friend." Stop being a suck-up drip. Anyone can say the right words to make themselves sound better than they are; you try to do this all the time (though we all know you're a self-absorbed asshole). If they'd buried Monteith, would they have carved up bits and pieces of him as mementos? He was so tight with Monteith that he didn't see him or if he did, couldn't tell Monteith was using? How is that possible? Yeah, it's a shame Monteith died so young. But the choice was his to use, and the results are his own as well. And libtards, don't bother me with your "it's a disease" shit. It was ALWAYS a choice. ALWAYS.
    Re: LAURA MUGARTE – None of it is original, you idiot; he steals it all from other sites and then adds his own worthless opinions. You'd do better to love a different blog from a legitimate, talented writer. Perez is a thief hack. Develop some taste and some brains.

    This kid needs to go somewhere, seriously. The ashes should be with the parents, not wanna be "friends". The father didn't even get to say goodbye to his son before he was cremated. No matter how old you are, if you are not married, the funeral and everything should be the parents responsibility. Not a girlfriend. Not friends. Sickening.

    Re: Wow Are You An Idiot – Lol, if he does steal this from other sites, why do you still bother to come here? SMH.

    Re: Wow Are You An Idiot – It's actually been medically proven that addiction is a disease; a chemical imbalance in the brain, and that imbalance only gets worse as the natural chemicals in the brain are altered by the chemicals in drugs.. I, unlike you, have done my research.

    Re: Wow Are You An Idiot – wow YOU really are an idiot. Whatever your option what gives you the right to call Laura an idiot? Why are you even on here if you think it's all stolen, and really "develop some taste and some brains" instead of worrying about what everyone else likes, why don't you go sit in a corner and work on your English?

    "By the grace of God, I’m not dead…" so this guy is his "friend" who basically killed him in Canada by partying with him the last week. You give him press? you feel sorry for him? for all you know he gave him his last bag of heroin. don't make heros out of these addict losers who chose not to support his sobriety that week he was in Canada.

    Re: LAURA MUGARTE – I hope to make it to your beautiful city next year or the year after.
    I just want my ashes scattered at sea since I spent a lot of time on sailboats. Just sounds kind of creepy to have someone's ashes, although my friend and I took her mother's ashes to Mexico and buried them in 3 of her favorite spots.

    Re: Wow Are You An Idiot – You are the biggest idiot of them all if you believe addiction is a choice. It is a chronic, progressive, disease, as recognized by the American Medical Association for the past fifty plus years. As a clinical counselor at one of the most well respected treatment centers in the world, I will guarantee you that NO ONE CHOOSES to be an addict!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
