DWTS Julianne Hough Chats On Her Mantras, Staying In Shape, And More

If you are scared to do something, then do it! That’s one of Julianne Hough’s mantras to get motivated and it’s a wise one. Here is more with Entertainment Tonight about how she stays in shape and more….

ET: Why is it so important for you to be here today?

Julianne Hough: I just love everything that it represents. My shape and representing who you are, loving and owning that shape. I’m a huge fan of just keeping a healthy lifestyle. For your body but for your mind, also.

ET: Is this the best you’ve ever felt?

JH: Yeah. I think growing up it was never an issue for me to think about working out or having a healthy lifestyle because I danced so much. Then when I stopped dancing and I got into regular life mode, I didn’t realize how much diet and nutrition and being active was so important. Not only for my physical state, but for my mental state, too. I think that’s just as important as working out for your physical state. Everything is a little more balanced with me now. I feel like I work out because it’s fun and I changed my mentality for that. too. I figured out if I have a good goal in mind, then I can actually achieve it. I also like to feel good when I’m working out. If I put schlubby clothes on, I’m like, ‘Blah.’ I don’t really want to work out. But if I’m feeling cute and I’m looking good — that’s my motivation.

ET: When it comes to fitness and nutrition, do you have a mantra? What are the words you live by?

JH: One of my mantras is if I’m scared to do something, that means that I have to do it. So If I’m like, ‘Oh, this is not something that I want to do,’ that means I have to do it. That’s always a good motivation. And also, I keep saying this about a mental state, but the more that I am physically active, the more that my mind is clear. When my mind is clear, I feel like I can give more of myself to those around me and hopefully bring light and joy and an infectious kind of energy to inspire them to do whatever they want to do. That’s really the key behind it all.

Will Julianne Hough Return To Dancing With The Stars? (New Interview)

Julianne Hough talked to Entertainment Tonight about how she keeps in shape. She also talked about her upcoming wedding plans, a Move Experience she’s planning to do with Derek (Bring it on, Guys), and a possible return to Dancing With The Stars (oh, I hope she does).

As for if she’ll ever return to Dancing With the Stars, Hough is keeping her options open. She shares that the hit ABC show did in fact ask her to come on as a judge again, but she currently wants to focus on her solo career.

“They are always going to be in my family. It’s where I started,” she says about DWTS. “It’s where I came from. If they want me to be a part of it in some aspect, of course. Absolutely. They’ve asked me to come back to judge but we’ll see what happens. Like I said, I’m still focused on my personal journey and my personal career. We’ll see.”

The same goes for her brother, six-time DWTS champ Derek Hough.

“He’s kind of in that stage of his life too where he’s really focusing on his personal career and journey,” she explains. “He’s got a lot of amazing things coming up. We’re still very passionate about our Move brand—which was our big tour that we went on over the last two years. There may be a third one coming soon — some sort of Move experience. So, we’re definitely focused on that too.”

Julianne Hough Talks On How Miss USA Will Be Showcased And More

As you know from a previous post, Julianne Hough will be co-hosting the Miss USA pageant on Sunday, June 5th at 7:00pm ET on FOX. She’s also the Creative Director. Entertainment Weekly talked to her about it and how the opportunity came to be. Julianne also speaks about how the show will be showcased….

“When I found out about Miss USA and how FOX and IMG acquired it, I thought ‘Man, this is such an opportunity to really showcase and celebrate women for more than just their physical beauty,’” Hough said. “And that is such a huge thing that I believe in. …Our slogan is ‘Confidently Beautiful,’ and what makes you beautiful is kindness, compassion, being healthy and active, all sorts of things.”

Hough says viewers can expect Sundays show to celebrate different body types, provide more background on the lives of the women competing, and add a 52nd contestant. The broadcast also will show the contestants in their hometowns and at their jobs.

“You want to humanize it a little bit, and really get to know the girls,” Hough says. “I think that’s part of why we thought of it as a physical beauty competition, because we didn’t get to see these girls and the lives that they live. We go to their hometowns and we get to see where they’re from, what their job is, what they’re doing in their community, how they interact with their family, and we get to see someone for who they truly are without all the makeup and dresses on. That humanizes it more, and it helps people connect to these women who are doing so much good in their community. And at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.”
