Julianne Hough has hit the big time since leaving Dancing With the Stars, not only scoring the lead female role in the remake of Footloose, but also bagging Hollywood icon Ryan Seacrest as a boyfriend. But does she think she'll ever have time to head back to the show that made her famous?

"I'd love to go back and dance with my brother," Hough said recently; brother Derek, of course, just finished up his second straight winning season on DWTS when he helped Jennifer Grey win the Mirror Ball trophy.

"I was thinking about [asking producers about] going back last season but Footloose came along so I couldn't. At the moment, I am so excited over everything I am doing in my career and the films. I want to keep on going down that track for now." Sounds like there's room in that answer for the possibility of more Dancing.

"I don't know," she says. "I've got a couple of projects in the works so we'll see."

Even if she doesn't return, Julianne is still a big DWTS fan. What did she think of the controversial last season? "It's about the overall package, and sometimes people root for the underdog," Hough says of Bristol Palin's success. "I can see why she got as far as she did. People vote for who they want to stay in. As far as the dancing is concerned, there were other people who were better. That's only part of the game, though."
