As his family prepares to lay Cory Monteith to rest in British Columbia, his Glee castmates are still struggling to come to terms with the loss of the actor, who died Saturday of a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol.

“I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile,” Dianna Agron, who played Monteith’s onetime girlfriend on the hit show, tells Entertainment Weekly.

Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry. We really cut our teeth and grew up on this show. In playing underdogs, we learned that we had dug into the hearts of our viewers and that we could stay there.”

“Cory is so deserving of that place in everyone’s hearts. He was one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met. He had a smart, curious mind, he was an enormous talent. He was loving to not only me, but my family,” Agron, 27, continues. “My heart goes out to his family, to Lea, to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend. We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us.”

Reps for Monteith’s costar and girlfriend of more than a year, Lea Michele, released a statement Tuesday thanking family, friends and fans “for all the love and support she’s received” since Monteith’s passing.

Fans of Monteith’s may make donations in his name to three charities that were especially important to him: Project Limelight Society, which exposes youth living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside to the arts; Virgin Unite, founded to support entrepreneurial efforts to better the world; and Chrysalis, which helps homeless and low-income individuals find employment.

Cory Monteith Was A “Beautiful Human Being,” Says Glee Co-Star Charlotte Ross


Following the death of 31-year-old Glee star Cory Monteith, more friends and colleagues are sharing memories of the late actor. Hit The Floor‘s own Charlotte Ross has had a recurring role on Glee since its 2009 premiere, playing the role of Judy Fabray. As mother to Dianna Agron‘s Quinn, Ross shared scenes with Monteith over the course of the series, including his memorable serenade of Paul Anka’s “You’re Having My Baby” in Season One. “Everyone in the cast is warm and supportive but, Cory stood out to me as one of the sweetest,” Ross tells VH1.

“Cory was extraordinarily professional, getting everything sung and acted so effortlessly take after take,” Ross says. “I felt like a happy audience member just observing such raw talent. And, between takes, he was a real prankster who was always up for having fun.”

Monteith was found dead in his room at the Vancouver Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, BC on Saturday, July 13. An autopsy was scheduled to take place on Monday, with toxicology results expected this week. Police have ruled out foul play.  “I hope all of his amazing fans can mourn knowing that he TRULY was a beautiful human being,” Ross says. “Cory was and will remain and inspiration to us all. I feel blessed to have known him, even a little.”

Top 15 Celebrity Hair Accessories Of 2012

We may not have the big bucks to get the fancy blowouts celebrities get done by the best hairstylists, but there’s at least one thing we can get that puts us in the same league. Hair accessories, which have been huge this year! Floral head-pieces, sparkling stars, crystal hair-bows, and minimal metallic headbands have been all the rage and spotted on the likes of Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence. And plenty more, but we’ve culled out our top 15 looks for you out of all of 2012.

A couple of stand-outs for us. Sarah Jessica Parker‘s custom Mickey Mouse ears made by L’Wren Scott, worn when she hosted the Barneys New York And Disney Electric Holiday Window Unveiling in November, were to die for. Emma Stone‘s delicate gold Jennifer Behr laurel leaf bandeaux worn at the The Amazing Spider-Man premiere at Oktyabr cinema hall in Moscow in June had us floored.  Chloe Moretz also wore a darling crystal hair-bow at the National Board of Review Awards gala in January that wasn’t just age-appropriate. We insist it’s appropriate for every age. Which means a 30-year-old woman (i.e. this writer) gets to wear one and not feel like we’re edging in on a 14-year-old’s style territory! Feel free to pore through our gallery for the rest of the looks!

Their romance is heating up!

New couple Taylor Swift and One Direction’s Harry Styles stepped out at New York’s Crosby Hotel on Thursday night to celebrate a friend’s birthday – and get in a little PDA of their own.

Joined by Dianna Agron, Emma Stone and about a dozen guests, Swift, 22, dressed demurely in black, and Styles, 18, watched as a cake was served and helped to sing along to “Happy Birthday” at the hotel’s Crosby Bar.

Taylor and Harry [were] being very smoochie,” a source at the party told PEOPLE. “They definitely [looked] like a couple.”

According to the source, Swift (who is up for three Grammys) and Styles held hands and he seemed “really protective of her” and kept his arm around her during the party.

They shared plenty of kisses, too, and didn’t seem to mind if anyone saw. Says the source: “They’re not trying to hide it. The bar was packed.”

Their outing marks a string of get-togethers in New York City over the past week.

On Sunday they visited the Central Park Zoo together. And on Monday, Swift attended a Madison Square Garden show afterparty at the Hudson Hotel for Styles’ band, One Direction, where the couple joined for a karaoke duet of a Backstreet Boys song. Swift later sang a One Direction tune, before the couple returned to her hotel around 4 a.m.
