“I’m not Finn Hudson,” Cory tells Parade of her Glee character. “I’m lucky on so many counts — I’m lucky to be alive.”He opened up about him doing "Anything and everything," and says his family finally staged an intervention at the age of 19.
“That’s when I first went to rehab,” he reveals. “I did the stint but then went back to doing exactly what I left off doing.”He worked hard at changing his life and eventually moved in with a family friends, quit using drugs and got a job as a roofer.
“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,” Cory says. “But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it. If I can, anyone can.”I love hearing stories like this...maybe he should go and have a chat to Lindsay Lohan, she need one.
