Julianne Hough: 'I Always Knew Ryan Seacrest's Intentions': [ send to a friend ]
Julianne Hough says she always knew Ryan Seacrest was interested in being more than friends.
"Dancing with the Stars and American Idol are filmed literally right across from each other so we would always pass each other on the hallways," Hough told Jay Leno on the 'Tonight Show'.
"I always knew he was poking, I always knew his intentions. I'd met Ryan many times over the years, but we got together at the right time."
In a separate interview, the 27-year-old explains how she and the always busy Seacrest, who does a daily radio show and hosts 'Idol', find time to get together: "You know what? When it's this good, you make it work."
Julianne Hough is currently making the rounds to promote her 'Footlose' remake. But the movie wasn't just all about song and dance for Seacrest.
"Ryan saw it and said, 'I can't watch that,'" Hough says. "He was like, 'When he (her racecar driver boyfriend) hits you I just want to punch the screen,"
"When I see you pull some of those faces, those are the faces that I see, so you know so it's hard for me to watch.'"
