Cory Monteith has officially checked into rehab. A rep for the Glee actor, 30, confirms he has voluntarily admitted himself into a treatment center for substance addiction— thankfully, he has girlfriend Lea Michele by his side for support.
At age 19, Cory sought treatment for substance abuse, having been rather open about his demons since. He hoped that remaining vocal about his issues would deter aspiring actors from following in his footsteps.
"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. "But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it."
