During a recent interview in which the "Glee" star opened up about dating and fashion, Michele also confirmed that she is not only dating Monteith but that she can't remember a time when she wasn't.
"I don't even remember a time when he wasn't my boyfriend," Michele said during an interview with Marie Claire magazine that will run in the January edition. "No one knows me better than Cory."
The actress added that with his support, she felt invincible.
"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 farther. He makes me feel like I can do anything," the star said.
"Anything" includes rumors about the actress that she is a "diva." While Michele, who claims the rumors are untrue, admitted that they used to bother her, they don't any longer.
"I am a very outspoken person, and if something makes me uncomfortable, you will know that it makes me uncomfortable, but that's as far as it goes," the actress said of being a diva. "I can assure you that (diva rumors) 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."
Instead, Michele suggested she reflects on what "wonderful fans" that she has.
"I have the most amazing fans, friends, and family members who have stood by me, and I know that my cast and crew really enjoy working with me. That's all that matters," the actress said.
"For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy," she added. "I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."
