Julianne Hough is starting to promote her new movie ‘Safe Haven’, and covers the new issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine. In the interview, she opens up about her relationship with Ryan Seacrest, saying, “We love what we do. We take pride in giving it our all, but then when we’re alone, we really focus in on going to dinners and being extra-romantic and affectionate and just being there for each other.”
She also speaks about filming a sex scene with Josh Duhamel in ‘Safe Haven’, and says, “I went from bawling to containing to laughing to crying again. Josh was crying. I think it was the most therapeutic moment of my life.”
Hough also opens up on more sensitive topics, and speaks about abuse when she was a child growing up in the UK, saying, “I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer. I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy facade because that was my job and my life. But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl. I wanted so much love... While I was in London, I was abused, mentally, physically, everything I'm a very forgiving person, and I don't want to hurt anybody. What's past is past.... when I started hitting puberty, when I started becoming a woman and stopped being a little girl."
She continues, “This is the farthest I’ve ever gotten into my London situation. I was told if I ever went back to the United States, three things were going to happen. One: I was going to amount to nothing. Two: I was going to work at Whataburger. And three: I was going to end up a slut. So, it was like, I can’t go back. I have to be this person.”
