Cory MonteithCory Monteith enters the homes of millions on Tuesdays nights to portray Finn Hudson, the lovable, conflicted, football playing, glee club singing teenager on Fox's hit series 'Glee.' But Monteith is a far cry from his lovable on-screen character.

The 29-year-old sat down with PARADE magazine and dished about his less than perfect past: "I'm not Finn Hudson. I burned a lot of bridges, I was out of control."

Monteith dropped out of school, after attending 12 different schools (one being an alternative program for troubled teens), by the age of 16. He then entered rehab at 19 after his mother and friends feared he "could die" and demanded he make a change.
