SHAPE's 30th birthday is coming up in November! In honor of this fun occasion, we're counting down the days and highlighting different cover girls through the years. First on the list? Julianne Hough! The Dancing with the Stars alum has a lot going on right now, so we thought we'd break it down and see exactly what's new with this former SHAPE cover girl!
The dancer, singer and actress recently wrapped filming on Footloose, which premiers October 14th. In order to get in shape for the remake of the 1984 classic, Hough says it was all about the cardio!
"I really wanted to look younger because my character was 17, so I would do a ton of cardio and a lot of resistance stuff so that my body went really tight and small," she told SHAPE. "And, actually, I just did Rock of Ages, so I wanted to be still in shape, but a lot more curvy. So, I did a lot more squats and weight training."
Although Hough said in 2008 that she wouldn't be appearing on Dancing with the Stars again, she's recently announced that she'll be making a guest appearance tonight to promote Footloose. Rumor has it that this time, she'll be performing with her brother Derek Hough, who is also a professional dancer, and one of her Footloose co-stars, Kenny Wormald. What are they dancing to? "Footloose," of course!
It's great to see Hough, who appeared on the cover of SHAPE in 2008, doing so well. Stay tuned for more updates on your favorite SHAPE cover girls!
