23-year-old Julianne Hough first shot to stardom on Dancing With the Stars. She left the show in 2008 and since then she has been on the trail to becoming a sought-after A-list actress and dates Ryan Seacreast. In this month's of Interview Magazine the singer talks candidly about her success. She tells the mag she almost turned the show down in 2007.
"I think my generation will always look at him as Tom Cruise, the movie star,' she says of working with the actor. 'But the thing about Tom is that he's super-cool, and whatever nerves I had going into a scene with him, afterwards he would say how funny it was or what a great job I did. 'So that really made me feel confident. But at the same time, my first scene with him was when my character, Sherrie, meets him for the first time and he says that she has a perky heart as he's grabbing her chest, so that was definitely pretty real."
