Lea Michele has said boyfriend Cory Monteith knows her better than anyone else.
The Glee co-stars, who play screen couple Rachel Berry and Finn Hudson on the hit US show, confirmed their off-screen romance in September after months of speculation, and the 26-year-old actress admitted he makes her feel on top of the world.
"I don't even remember a time when he wasn't my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory," she told US Marie Claire.
"No one knows what it's been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go further. He makes me feel like I can do anything."
She added: "For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."
Lea, who graced the cover of the magazine's January issue, also denied rumours of her diva-like attitude and her feud with guest star Kate Hudson.
"I can assure you that [diva rumours] aren't real. It's super-frustrating sometimes, and I used to fight back, but now I feel like, 'You can think what you want to think about me - that's OK'," she said.
