Julianne Hough usually brings the fire to the dancefloor, but this sexy starlet is also smoldering in the pages of this month's Maxim. Why? Because the former Dancing With the Stars pro made the Maxim's 2013 Hot 100 list! 

The Safe Haven starlet came in at No. 40 on the list, edging out Game of Thrones hottie Emilia Clarke and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson. Pretty impressive for the former Dancing With the Stars pro! In fact, Jules was the only Dancing With the Stars pro who made the list. We might be biased, but we definitely think all of the female pros should have made the cut. Have you seen Sharna Burgess' abs?

But alas, if there was one female pro to represent them all, Jules is a great pic. Since leaving the ABC dancing competition in 2008, Julianne has set her sights on Hollywood. She's starred in several feature films, including musicals Footloose and Rock of Ages, and most recently, the Nicholas Sparks' film, Safe Haven. Jules' next film, Paradise, is slated for a 2013 release. 

Congrats, Jules! Now, to celebrate, we've rounded up some of her hottest moments. Enjoy!
