Dancing with the Stars alum Julianne Hough covers GLAMOUR magazine. The dancer-turned-actress chops it up with the publication about hr new movie, Rock of Ages, working non-stop and much more. Glamour played-up Hough’s role in the movie by having an 80s-inspired photo shoot for her feature. Hough was photographed by Ellen von Unwerth.
On the scene in Rock of Ages where co-star Tom Cruise grabs her breast:
“That was my first scene with him! I was nervous as all get-out, but after every take he high-fived me and was like, ‘That was awesome.’ At one point on the movie, I got really hurt—I tweaked my neck and was in so much pain. And everyone was pressuring me to keep shooting, but Tom came in and said, ‘No, this is what insurance is for, Julianne. You have the rest of your career. You need to take care of yourself!’ And I thought, Tom Cruise cares about me! Now I can cry.”
On working continuously since getting the Dancing With the Stars gig:
“I’m a very anxious person. If I’m not working, I go crazy. I’ve been lucky in my career. But if I lost everything tomorrow—and had no money—I would somehow make it work. I have that survivor mentality because of a lot of stuff that went on in a previous life. I feel like I’ve had four lives.”
