On Wednesday Lea Michele and a gal pal went for a hike in the Hollywood Hills, and though the Glee starlet has a reputation for being a bit of a diva, she was in a great mood after her workout.
Lea and her friend stopped by Earth Bar for smoothies afterwards, and while her new boyfriend Matthew Paetz wasn't anywhere to be seen (yup, he's the one who used to be a gigolo), they're still going strong. In fact, the other day he was photographed driving her car on an errand run. Wait, doesn't he have his own wheels? Here's to hoping...
After boyfriend Cory Monteith passed away nearly a year ago from a drug overdose, Lea wasn't romantically linked to anyone until she met Paetz in April on the set of her music video for "On My Way." A source tells People, "For a long time, Lea wasn't close to even thinking about getting into a relationship. Cory's death was and will continue to be a struggle for her."
As long as she's happy ... and it certainly looks like she is!
