    Cory Monteith's Friends And Costars React To His Death

    The well-liked and far-too-young Glee actor was found dead yesterday in Vancouver. Celebrities took to Twitter to express their grief.

    Naya Rivera released the following statement to The Hollywood Reporter:

    "The entire Glee family and I are deeply saddened by this tragedy. Cory was and always will be a part of my own family and a good friend. He was a special part of this world and will forever be missed. My heart goes out to Cory's family and Lea and while we are grateful for everyone's well wishes, privacy during this time of grief is greatly appreciated."

    We talked about how lucky he felt to be alive-and sober. We talked about playing drums. Glad i knew you Cory.
