Everyone loves him and wants him to wear their clothes. He’s such a likable person, so why wouldn’t they? Some people love him so much they ask me to get dates for them. I tell them to call (“Millionaire Matchmaker”) Patti Stanger.

Cory about himself
I’m not Finn Hudson. I’m lucky on so many counts — I’m lucky to be alive. I had a serious problem [with drugs and alcohol]. Anything and everything, as much as possible. I burned a lot of bridges. I was out of control. [At 19] That’s when I first went to rehab. I did the stint but then went back to doing exactly what I left off doing. I stole a significant amount of money from a family member. I knew I was going to get caught, but I was so desperate I didn’t care. It was a cry for help. I was confronted and I said, ‘Yeah, it was me.’ It was the first honorable, truthful thing that had come out of my mouth in years. A lot of things went missing when I was around; I had high overhead to take care of. I was done fighting myself. I finally said, ‘I’m gonna start looking at my life and figure out why I’m doing this.’ 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. … But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it. If I can, anyone can.
