Lea Michele remembered her late boyfriend and "Glee" costar Cory Monteith on Twitter over the weekend with a candid black-and-white photo of the couple. Monteith, who died last summer, would have been 32 on Sunday.

Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver, British Columbia, hotel room in July with a mixture of heroin and alcohol in his system, according to a coroner's report.

In the April issue of Seventeen magazine, Michele said that Monteith's addiction never affected their personal relationship.

"I only have happy memories of Cory," the actress said. "He was not his addiction — unfortunately, it won. But that wasn't who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, 'I'm your boyfriend,' I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful."

Monteith's mother Ann McGregor also tweeted out a birthday message about her son on Friday.



Last year, Monteith told People magazine that he checked into rehab in March 2013 partly because he did not want to be negative role model to his fans.

"I don't want kids to think it's okay to drop out of school and get high, and they'll be famous actors, too," he said at the time. "But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it."
