Actress Julianne Hough has reportedly moved on from her failed romance with U.S. Tv and radio personality Ryan Seacrest by embarking on a new relationship with director Ari Sandel.

The Footloose star was spotted getting up close and personal with a mystery man in a Los Angeles restaurant last week (ends19Jul13) and now has revealed her new beau is Academy Award winner Sandel.

The filmmaker, who won an Oscar in 2006 for his short film West Bank Story, was snapped leaving Hough's Hollywood home early on Saturday (20Jul13), when the blonde beauty turned 25, and heading into a flower store. A birthday bouquet of red roses were delivered to the star's pad shortly afterwards.

Hough parted ways with Seacrest, her boyfriend of two years, in March (13).
