Julianne Hough’s brother, Derek, may have plans to return to “Dancing with the Stars” in the future but it seems Juliann herself has moved on and is looking for a new challenge in the form of an acting role. She is set to appear in Tom Cruise’s big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical “Rock of Ages.”
Talks have already taken place between Julianne and Tom about the project, and Julianne admitted that she was rather star-struck upon meeting the “Top Gun” star. She was very impressed, though, calling him, “one of the most welcoming people you’ve ever met”. “For me, it’s like, ‘Oh! This is gonna be so fun.”
The pair have been talking about the script, which she said Cruise is 100% behind. Having heard that Cruise is one of the most hardworking people in Hollywood, Julianne expressed her determination to keep up with him, relishing the adrenaline rush it will bring her – but we think she’s a little confused.
“I gotta show him I’ve got some balls.” Uh…yeah… good luck with that, then, lady.
There are rumors that Diego Gonzalez Boneta will take the lead part, but Julianne would not confirm that. However, she did say that she had met the star “and he’s so beautiful. He’s got like a cleft in his chin, he’s a movie star. He’s very hot and really, really great actor and amazing singer, so it’s great.”
Well, Julianne Hough is clearly excited about “Rock of Ages” but are you? Do you want her to hang up her dancing shoes or see her return to “Dancing with the Stars”?
