Julianne Hough Dishes on Date Nights With Brooks Laich in 'Women's Health'
Here’s what the 26-year-old Dancing With The Stars judge had to share:
On a typical date night with her boyfriend: “Our date nights are usually at home, but we can have a date anywhere. We love going on day dates or staying in and having a date. He wants to dance so bad and literally wants me to teach him every single day so while we’re cooking in the kitchen we’ll be dancing around with music playing. I have an obsession with table decorations so I always have placemats and a candle lit and flowers just to make the mood like a date. And then we’ll have dinner and just chill—sometimes we’ll watch a movie or keep dancing. We make our own dates; we don’t have to go somewhere to have a date night.”
On her go to workout routine: “I feel like dancing is the best workout you can get because you’re working out muscles that you can’t necessarily get just lifting weights because they’re the little, tiny muscles that are all internal and it’s that deepest layer of muscle that we have that dancing really gets.”
On her feelings about Grease and playing Sandy: “I’m literally floored, the fact that I get to play Sandy in Grease, live, are the things that made me want to be a performer to begin with. That was one of the first movies that I ever saw that I thought ‘Oh my gosh you can actually do all three of the things that I love to do and make a movie!?’ I feel extremely blessed and extremely honored, but also nervous, really nervous, because it’s the live aspect and you don’t want to mess up and also just stepping into somebody’s shoes, Olivia Newton John. It’s pretty nerve-racking, but at the same time, I try to think of how awesome it is that I get to do that rather than ‘Uh-oh, I hope I don’t mess up’ because then I’ll just go down a downward spiral that I’ve created. I knew all the dances, I knew all the music, I mean ‘Hopelessly Devoted’ at five years old I was singing that. I didn’t know what it meant. Have you heard ‘Go Grease Lighting? Those are some dirty lyrics and I just realized that this year when I was reading with some of the Danny’s and I was like ‘What are you saying?!’”
