The stunning actress also opens up to the magazine about her relationship to Ryan Seacrest, being groped by actor Tom Cruise in the upcoming movie ‘Rock of Ages’ as well as her personality and past, so check out excerpts of her interview and find out everything about the talented actress.

She’s enchanted the world with her professional dance moves and now she’s moved on to acting, making Julianne a multi-talented woman. In her upcoming movie, where she stars alongside Tom Cruise, a scene features Tom holding her breasts, but it seems that her nerves passed quickly as she says Tom was ‘awesome’. Julianne told Glamour that:

“That was my first scene with him! I was nervous as all get-out, but after every take he high-fived me and was like, ‘That was awesome.’ At one point on the movie, I got really hurt—I tweaked my neck and was in so much pain. And everyone was pressuring me to keep shooting, but Tom came in and said, ‘No, this is what insurance is for, Julianne. You have the rest of your career. You need to take care of yourself!’ And I thought, Tom Cruise cares about me! Now I can cry.”

Preparing for the movie role wasn’t super easy as plenty of exercises were involved in the process including dance lessons and rollerblading lessons, but as a former dancer, Julianne says it was “fun to be able to go back and be coached”. She’s an athletic girl that is used to physical activities and according to Julianne she and her beau, Ryan Seacrest have a competitive spirit in common and that is what drew her to him. She reveals to the magazine that:

“When we work out with a trainer, we’ll die before we stop, like, to the point where we can’t breathe.”

As far as how she ended up hooking up with her older beau, Julianne says that it was Ryan who hit on her while she was on his show with her ex boyfriend. She told Glamour that:

“I had another boyfriend, Chuck Wicks, whom I met on ‘Dancing With the Stars’. While we were dating, we 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.”
