Julianne Hough Wants To Be Known For More Than Just 'Dancing With The Stars'

The 27-year-old actress chatted with the mag about meeting fiance Brooks Laich, being known for more than DWTS and more. Check it:

On not wanting to be known for the very thing that propelled her to superstardom: “If someone told me they hadn’t seen Dancing With the Stars, I would say, ‘Oh, good!’ Everything I was getting was amazing, but I felt like, I’m so much more than this. I want to be respected as a singer and an actress.”

On how she met fiancé Brooks Laich: “I did a horror movie that never got released. I’m convinced the only reason I was meant to do that movie was to meet my fiancé. Six years prior, Teddy Sears, my costar, tried to invite Brooks—who was a good friend of his—to visit him in L.A. Brooks, who knows nothing about pop culture, joked, ‘What are you going to do—hook me up with that Juicy Fruit starlet?’ He’d seen the commercial and was like, ‘Where do I meet a girl like that?’ I was the girl in the commercial! Teddy remembered that comment and texted Brooks, ‘You’re never going to guess who I’m doing a movie with.’”

On going through a break-up in the public eye (with Ryan Seacrest): “I definitely hated that everyone had an opinion about what I was going through. At the time, I was constantly running and touring, which sometimes looked like I was totally fine and couldn’t care less, which wasn’t the truth. But it was my form of being able to deal.”
