Julianne Hough Enjoys Hollywood Safe Haven Premiere, But It Could Have Been Very Different After Dodgy First Audition

As Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel – accompanied by Black Eyed Peas star Fergue – celebrated the Hollywood premiere of their forthcoming film Safe Haven in Hollywood last night, Popsugar posted a video of the female co-star in which she admitted she felt that she’d almost screwed up her audition for the role.

The film, released on Valentine’s Day (February 14, 2013), has been directed by Lasse Hallstrom and has been adapted from the book written by Nicholas Spark. It focuses on mysterious character Kate – played by Hough – who arrives in a small American town with a dark secret and her guard up. Gradually letting her guard down after allowing herself to be led into a series of relationships – including one with Duhamel’s Alex – she is ultimately faced with the decision of whether to fully admit her past and try and overcome her secret mistake.

“There were a lot of girls that went up for Katie” Hough told Popsugar. “I had my first audition and Lasse the director wasn’t even in the room. He was on Skype in New York and I was in the room with Josh … it felt very confined because we were trying to stay in front of the iPad and it was just kind of awkward. It’s hard to have chemistry and know how his style works because he does like to improvise in the audition but he wasn’t even in the room.”

“So I left the audition and was like ‘that went terrible’ and I knew that if he was in the room it’d be so much better. So I called and went ‘can I go back in there?’ and they were like ‘no you’ve already had your shot’.” She wouldn’t take no for an answer though, and thankfully was allowed another shot with Hallstrom in the room. The rest, as they say, is history.
