Cory Monteith & Mr. Will-W.
Canadian Boys do it best and Cory Monteith is no exception. Although it has been documented time and again that Glee's Cory Monteith is wonderful with Paparazzi and Fans alike, I did not expect him to be nearly as generous as he was this morning on his way to rehearsal for the Gemini Awards. The Show which takes place tonight at Toronto's Winter Garden Theatre, honours the v. best in Canadian Television and Monteith plays Host to the festivities.

The strapping Calgary-born Actor cut his teeth working on Canadian-filmed productions like Smallville, Supernatural and Stargate before reaching mega-stardom eventually on Fox's Musical Comedy series Glee. Monteith who plays Football Jock-turned-Show Choir Boy Finn on the wildly popular series, admits to being awkward and one could sense that bit of shyness as he came out of his Escalade today to greet a lucky group of ten Fans, signing autographs and taking Photos. His Publicist and Security Guard stood back and watched-on supportively. And of the many Celebrities I've met in my life, I'd have to say if not the nicest, Monteith is definitely in my Top Three.

Don't forget to tune into Global and Showcase tonight as the Awards will be televised nationally from 8-9:30 PM EST.

Monteith was ever-so-amazing to pose for a Photo with me, signing my various Glee memorabilia. As always, I love my readers and want you guys to have one of the signed 5x7 photos he personalized! If you're in it to win it, please leave a Comment below detailing for me why it is that you love Cory Monteith (maybe even more than I do!).

  1. Will, thanks for the post. He's cute and very nice to his fans too~

  2. I love him because of his voice,he's an amazing singer and not to mention he has a great personality too.

  3. Hey! Well, where to begin. I admire Cory because he is an amazing guy, he is very down to earth and sweet with his fans. He is a great singer and I love his dorky personality. One thing I like about Cory is that he wants to be a role model, and even if he did bad things in his past, he regrets them and he became a good person. He is very talented and the best actor, in my opinion. Haha I even own a fansite for him I really hope i can get the picture because it would mean a lot to me. Thanks :D

    do you know how long he's in town for? He's my fav Gleek..

  5. He is damn awesome, I am totally in love with him, I want him to slush me !

    Big fan from ColdHolland

  6. I'm sure I am older than the average Gleek, but that doesn't make me any less a fan. Cory does an amazing job as Finn. He balances playing the hetero jock, with the lovesick puppy, to the teenage hero. Yeah, hero. Times have changed since I was in highschool, with zero role models, with no one out of the closet at school. I felt alone, scared and often bullied. Watching Glee today I realize how much it must postitively impact the lives of so many kids/teenagers. Through Cory's great talent, he embodies the hero that I wish I had in my life back then. Someone among 'the cool crowd' that would be there for me, to stand up for me. The fact that Cory is Canadian and hasn't forgotten his roots, makes me all the more proud of him. I hope he knows how much he means to so many.

  8. I love Cory for his:

    Humility and gratefulness -
    I don't need to be wildly famous for my life to make sense. I guess I'm kind of happy where I'm at, and I take whatever comes and it's a good thing. So I think what I've already been given, as far as being able to do these shows, is such a blessing. It's really cool to be able to do it. It's not a job that a whole lot of people get to do."
    "I keep a pretty low profile. I live in Culver City with some roommates. I don't do the whole 'Hollywood' thing. I don't think too much is going to change. If people are taking pictures of me at Starbucks, it's not the end of the world. It's cool, it's fun, it's exciting."

    Sense of humour!
    "Singing? I've never done anything. Seriously, up to this point, I wouldn't even go karaoking with my friends. I would never sing in front of people because I was so sensitive about it. Isn't that ironic? Now I'm singing in front of America."

    And of course, with that smile of his, it's just impossible not to love him!

  9. I love Cory Monteith because he's CANADIAN!!! :) Watching him hosting the Gemini Awards, made me beyond proud to be Canadian! I absolutely love that he lets everyone know he's from Canada. There have been many Canadian actors who eventually make it big in the USA, but Cory is closer to my age, on a show that I LOVE, so he's just that much more lovable :)

    I also love him because of the personality he exudes. He hasn't let Hollywood change him. He's so incredibly humble amidst his amazing rise to fame. He also seems to appreciate every single thing that the fame has brought him. I have never had the fortune of meeting him, but from the countless videos I've watched, he is probably the most patient celebrity out there! I've never heard of him turning away from fans, but instead he always makes a point to go over to them and sign their stuff. This really shows his true quality because he lets his fans know that he is never too good for them. I don't even know Cory, but I have so much respect and admiration for him and the way he handles his fame.

    I also love how public he is about not drinking alcohol. I am of legal drinking age, but choose not to drink. It's a lifestyle choice I've made but I get teased about it by my university peers. I had to stop going to social events on campus because I couldn't handle the teasing and the pressure to drink. Once Cory did the YoungHollywood interview and discussed his alcohol abstinence, I fell even more in love with him. Seeing my favourite celebrity being so open about not drinking was exactly what I needed to muster up the courage to face my peers despite their teasing. Cory helped me realize that I don't need to shy away from my uncommon choice of abstaining from alcohol, and for this, I will always be grateful for him!

    All in all, I really, really, really love Cory!! While I love everything about Glee, I find myself only really watching for his scenes! And call me crazy or obsessed, but I've watched ALL of the shows and movies in which Cory had a role...right down to Kraken and Hybrid! :)

    I don't own any signed merchandise from the glee cast, so winning this autographed pic would be beyond exciting for me. I would honestly cherish it forever!

    Thank you!!
