The Something Borrowed star, who guest starred on Glee as dance teacher Cassandra July, offered up her home to the Glee star when Michele needed to escape from the public eye.
"I called [Kate Hudson] and said, ‘I don't know where I'm going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters],'" Michele told Elle. "She was like, ‘Oh, you're going to stay at my house.' Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there. I'll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me."
The 27-year-old actress covers the mag for its December issue, looking stunning in smoky eye make-up, a white belted jacket and denim jeans with a chain waist belt.
