Los Angeles: Actress Lea Michele called up her friend Kate Hudson to get her help in avoiding the media spotlight following the death of boyfriend and `Glee` co-star Cory Monteith in July.

After the news of Monteith`s death became public, paparazzi began to swarm Michele`s house leaving her no choice but to call up her `Glee` co-star Hudson for the shelter, reported E!Online.

"I called her and said, I don`t know where I`m going to go because my house is swarmed (with reporters). She was like, `Oh, you`re going to stay at my house.` Like it was nothing," said the 27-year-old actress.

"She let my family stay there, and any of my friends. She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favourite juices... I`ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me," she added.

Monteith, 31, was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver on July 13.
