More than just celebrity gossip

Julianne Hough thinks Tom Cruise is the best dancer ever!

Footloose star Julianne Hough graces the cover of SELF magazine and gives her advice to those struggling with boredom at the gym. She hates it too and instead incorporates outdoor activities to her regimen. Check out the highlights of the interview below.

ON DANCING VERSUS ACTING:

“There is something so rewarding about dancing. It’s almost spiritual-you let loose, you feel free, you get endorphins from the exercise. Acting is like free therapy! Trying to make people laugh or cry can be inspiring. Dancing and acting satisfy me in different ways.”

ON WHEN SHE FEELS MOST SEXY:

“I feel sexy when I’m taking care of myself and not depriving myself.”

ON HER FAVORITE LEG WORKOUT:

“Rollerblading is a serious leg workout! When I have a day off, I want to be outside-unless I’m on my bed with my dogs watching an SVU marathon!”

ON HOW SHE KEEPS HERSELF IN CHECK:

“As a teen, I wanted to break free like Ariel in Footloose. My dad is protective. He texts, ‘Right place, right time, doing the right thing?’ That’s still his way of checking in on me.”

ON HER WORKOUTS:

“I vary my workouts every day because, otherwise, I get bored. I always try to run for 20 to 40 minutes on the beach first. Six days a week is fantastic, but four is great, too.”

ON HOW TO GET ROCK HARD ABS:

“My go-to pre-bikini flat-ab move is the plank, all different types.”

ON OTHER OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES SHE ENJOYS:

“I grew up mountain biking in Utah, and I’ve been doing it more recently since working in Miami. I crave danger. I find going fast exhilarating! I adore snowboarding, skiing and skydiving.”

ON BEING HAPPY WITH HERSELF:

“A couple of years ago, my dad asked me if, when I’m on the road by myself, no boyfriend, no family, no dogs to comfort me, I am happy with who I am. That stuck with me. If you don’t know yourself, you can’t really love anybody. Today, I am really happy with who I am and feel like I’m in the right place. I’d met Ryan many times over the years, but we got together at the right time.”

ON WHO SHE THINKS IS THE BEST DANCER:

“My brother, Derek, is the best dancer, but Tom Cruise gives him a run for his money!”
