'Rock of Ages' Star Julianne Hough: Ryan Seacrest Hit On Me While I Was Dating Chuck Wicks
Julianne Hough and Ryan Seacrest have been happily dating for a little over two years now, but how they ultimately ended up together isn't exactly a fairy tale.
In an interview with Glamour magazine's July issue, the 23-year-old beauty admitted that the 37-year-old American Idol host put the moves on her -- while she was being interviewed with her ex-boyfriend, country crooner Chuck Wicks. Hough and Wicks, who were not only a couple but were partners on Dancing With the Stars, dated from August 2008 to November 2009, competing on ABC's hit reality show in Spring 2009.
The Rock of Ages star told the mag:
"While we were dating, we [Chuck and I] 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."
Julianne also opened up a bit about how someone tried to set her up with Seacrest when she first moved to Los Angeles, but she was already involved with some one else:
"Well, when I first came to L.A., someone actually tried to set us up, but I was engaged to someone else, a guy I knew from Utah who had served a Mormon mission. He was a great guy — I’d known him since I was nine. But I needed to figure myself out more, and so I moved to L.A. and we ended it. And actually, he ended up marrying my childhood best friend, and now they have a kid together. It was a little weird when it happened, but they’re a great couple!"
