Julianne Hough cringes when she listens to her first interview with Ryan Seacrest because the TV host was flirting with her even though she had a boyfriend.
The dancer-turned-actress, who has been dating the American Idol presenter and DJ since 2010, appeared on Seacrest's radio show back in 2009 with her then-beau, country music singer Chuck Wicks, to promote their stint on Dancing With the Stars.
However, Hough admits it was an uncomfortable experience because Seacrest spent the entire chat hitting on her.
She tells Glamour magazine, "I had another boyfriend, Chuck Wicks, whom I met on Dancing With the Stars. While we were dating, we went on Ryan's radio show together. The interview's on YouTube, and I blush when I hear it because Ryan is hitting on me the entire time!
"At the end, Ryan said something like, 'You guys really have something special!' And I thought to myself, 'He's so full of s**t right now!' When Chuck and I broke up, I wanted to be single. That lasted five months. Then Ryan and I went on a date."
Hough admits it was Seacrest's work ethic that attracted her to him, adding, "Ryan and I are very alike. When we work out with a trainer, we'll die before we stop, like, to the point where we can't breathe... We both like that perfection in ourselves, and we want to make our relationship like that."
