Julianne Hough Talks Love And Heartbreak
Julianne Hough is a crazy-talented dancer, but she's not dancing around any straight talk in her new Redbook interview. The August cover star, who's reportedly dating hockey player Brooks Laich, opened up to the publication about her love life.
When discussing how her current relationship differs from the one she had with Ryan Seacrest, she said, "Every relationship, there was nothing wrong or bad, but there was nothing right. I had one foot out because I didn't want to get hurt. And I didn't say what was on my mind because I didn't want to ruffle any feathers. I needed to be perfect. But now I'm not holding anything back, because I'd rather get my heart broken than never know what it is to be completely, madly in love. If I had been this open in my last relationship, who knows?"
