Julianne Hough Wanted to Stay Single for 1 Year After Ryan Seacret Split

Julianne Hough Wanted to Stay Single for 1 Year After Ryan Seacret Split

Julianne Hough shows off her fabulous figure on the cover of Self magazine’s March 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 25-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On wanting to stay single after splitting from Ryan Seacrest: “My goal has been to be single for an entire year. There have been moments where I’m like ‘This sucks!’ But my dad used to say to me, ‘When you feel happy with who you are, you won’t need anybody to fill a void.’”

On obsessively watching her weight during Footloose: “When I was doing Footloose [in 2010], I counted calories and weighed myself obsessively. I didn’t hang out with the cast because I was like, ‘Then I’m going to eat and drink.’ I missed out on life because I was so focused on and self-conscious of my body. Now I say ‘Everything in moderation’…I’d rather have memories, even with an extra couple pounds.”

On her brother Derek Hough: “He’ll text me out of the blue and say ‘Hey, I just wanted to remind you that you’re a goddess and you’re amazing and you have the most wonderful day and I love you.’ He inspires me to do the same for my girlfriends. It really makes a difference.”

    That’s silly! It’s not something you should decide. It should come naturally till you are ready for another one. Your new relationship seems fake btw.

    Ryan dumped her when he found out that she and her family are racists.

  • andyoo

    we all know anything with Seacrest is not going to last.
    he is so gay he is just dating to keep himself from outing.

  • kat

    @Pipa: Well she was in a long term relationship with Ryan for over 3 years so it makes sense she’d want to take a break before jumping into another serious relationship. Everyone tries to make goals to benefit their future, it doesn’t mean we always follow them.

  • Sheri

    Julianne is the total package – she can sing, dance, act and is beautiful. And what a sweet brother she has in Derek! :)

  • Warren

    She is so pretty and sexy.

  • Tina

    I kind of think she gave Ryan 1 year to come back to her. Ryan is an idiot.

  • Sheri

    @Tina: I couldn’t agree with you more, Tina!

  • teeners

    I think she’s sweet and adorable… but she keeps on preaching. Sharing her ‘goals’ when she breaks them anyway. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. She comes across as someone who wants to be in control but ends up being vulnerable to criticism and the world that she chose. She ends up contradicting herself.

  • teeners

    @kat: You call 3 years a long-term relationship? Try being together for 10 years. That’s long-term. She has had a lot boyfriends… if you are really searching for a serious relationship, you don’t have a boyfriend for the hell of it or because you’re in the mood for it, you wait until you think you’re ready for it and that depends on the person. Maybe she moves on quickly depending on the relationship that she had–that being said, it goes to show her approach in relationships, whatever…. I don’t think her new relationship is fake though. She looks happy and the age seems right. I hope it continues. She and Brook/s look great. :)
