Cory Monteith’s Last Words To Ryan Murphy: ‘I Want To Get Better’

A week after “Glee” star Cory Monteith died from a mix of alcohol and heroin, creator Ryan Murphy publicly expressed his feelings.

Murphy told E!, “It’s hard to even explain how personally upsetting it is.”

Murphy has now revealed he was instrumental in persuading the star to stop work on the show and address his problems in a clinic. He tells Deadline.com, “As soon as I heard what was happening, when we had two episodes left to go, I brought him to my office where we had the intervention. He said he wanted to finish the rest of the season, and I said absolutely not. We were not going to put a stupid TV show before his sobriety. I assured him he was not fired, that his job was secure, that he would leave today. He went with a whimper and not a bang and it was very emotional… We had experts in the room and tried to let him know this was a disease. It was a tough and very emotional day and the last thing he said before he left was, ‘I want to get better.’ And I believed him.”

Murphy insists he was satisfied Monteith was making good progress until several weeks ago when the actor and his girlfriend Lea Michele came to visit while he was working on a TV movie in Fire Island, N.Y., and the director asked him whether he was having problems again.
