Why is Julianne Hough so cool... aside from her killer moves?
The remake of the ’80s classic grooves to theaters today, and we got a chance to catch up with the film’s leading lady, Julianne Hough. Here, the triple threat reveals she’s a lot more down to the earth than the diva that comes out onstage.
She’s a lot like her Footloose character, Ariel. “She’s really vulnerable and a good girl at heart. She’s just, on the outside, a little bit crazy.”
She’s BFFs with her older brother, and Dancing With the Stars competitor, Derek. “He’ll read something very inspirational and uplifting and immediately send it to me. He’s all about positive thinking.”
She’s totally afraid of sharks. “You know when you’re a kid and you close the door, turn out the light and jump on your bed because you’re afraid something’s underneath? That’s like what I do in the ocean. I am quite terrified of whatever is underneath the sea.”
She’s a total animal lover. “My two puppies, Lexi and Harley, are with me everywhere I go. They remind me that I’m just Julianne and they’re just Julianne’s dogs…and they’re the ones who rule the roost.”
