Julianne Hough is a confident woman with a thriving career, a supportive family and a loving relationship with one of the most thoughtful people she’s ever met. But the former Dancing With the Stars pro and Rock of Ages star told Zooey Magazine she does have one insecurity — the idea that people think she’s landing all these movie roles because she started dating American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.
“I could care less if tabloids say I look fat, but the thing I get the most insecure about is when I hear, ‘Oh, it must be nice dating Ryan so you can do movies,’” Julianne said in a new Zooey cover story, probably knowing full well no one would ever call her fat. “I’m like, ‘Yo! I’ve been doing this a lot longer than I’ve been dating him.’ I never want people to think I’ve gotten somewhere or gotten something I haven’t worked for.”
Julianne is 23 but told the magazine she feels 43 and it ready to get married and start a family. She also talked more about what made her fall in love with Mr. Seacrest, her boyfriend of two years.
“You know, we gush and mush at each other all the time,” Julianne said. “At dinner we’ll always be sitting there explaining the reasons why we love each other. It’s corny and silly but it’s great. I love talking about Ryan. He’s so genuine and loyal. I didn’t realize…I had perceptions of who I thought he was. On our first date I thought, ‘This is so not what I expected.’ He’s one of the most thoughtful — not just boyfriends or men — but people I’ve ever met. A lot of the romantic things he does for me are sometimes not even specifically for me. He’ll remember my Mom’s birthday or that it’s Mother’s Day and he’ll send something. I would so much rather him be like that with my family than have him do something for me.”
