Actress Julianne Hough is seriously considering getting the hell out of Hollywood - because she's convinced it's one of the worst places to live on earth.

The former dancer and singer, who grew up a Mormon in Utah, admits she has never been comfortable living it up in Tinseltown and she feels it's time to make a big move.

The Rock of Ages star says, "I'm in that weird place. Do I want to still live in Hollywood or venture (out) and be away from the industry?

"I'm in that transition now of 'Oh my God, what is happening?' I grew up Mormon in Utah and... I have the same morals and standards I was raised with, and, as much as I want to sin, and I drink now, I can't go that far. There's something in me that won't allow me to go that far. I have a really good balance of where I came from and where hell is, which is L.A."
