Julianne Hough - Julianne Hough Was Hesitant To Date Ryan Seacrest
Actress/singer Julianne Hough was hesitant to date boyfriend Ryan Seacrest because the American Idol host is such a popular public figure.
The former Dancing With the Stars dancer first met Seacrest in Hollywood in 2007 when mutual friends set them up, but Hough admits she was skeptical and grilled him on their first date.
She tells America's InStyle magazine, "I was reluctant because he is such an influential guy, and what if it didn't work out? Our first date, I was so nervous that I just sat there and interviewed him with questions like, 'Are you loyal?' and 'Are you close to your family?'"
The pair has been a couple ever since and the Rock of Ages star reveals they maintain their romance by taking culinary classes together, adding, "When we do see each other, we are super excited and do these cute and romantic things... I'm very in love, and it feels great."
But, the 24 year old admits their cooking hobby has a downside: "I'm 20 pounds heavier than I was when we started dating."
