Julianne Hough Was Afraid To Date Ryan Seacrest

‘Rock of Ages’ star Julianne Hough admits that, initially, she was a little wary of dating Ryan Seacrest. It wasn’t because of their 14 year age difference, though: it was because of Ryan’s power and influence as a Hollywood producer/personality.

“I’ve never dated anyone my age but Ryan is definitely the oldest man I’ve dated. Age is irrelevant I think. Mutual friends would be like, ‘You guys would match perfectly.’ And then eventually when I was single, he emailed me. I was very cold.


“I was nervous about dating him because he is a very scary person. He’s powerful and influential. I was like, ‘No, no, no’ but it just ended up happening.”

Julianne also admitted it can be hard for them to find time to see each other with their busy work schedules.

“Our inside joke is that we have to schedule scheduling hanging out. But it somehow works.”

They do seem to be happy together! Julianne said she was raised a Mormon, and her upbringing still influences her in Hollywood.

“We learnt about being humble, thoughtful and grateful, always to see the good in people. No sex before marriage, no drinking alcohol, no drugs, no dating before you are 16, pornography is not good. The thinking is there are certain things that pollute your mind, that aren’t giving you great direction.


“I still try to be a good person – yeah, I like a glass of wine with dinner and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. I think a lot of rules are to guide and protect people from going too far, I know where my limit is – everything in moderation.”

Nothing wrong with moderation!
