Personal Best: Q&A With Julianne Hough

The actress and fitness coach dishes about health, beauty, and her perfect day.

If her film career stays on its current trajectory -- soaring -- you'll soon know Julianne Hough, 24, as a leading lady, not just a country music star, former hoofer on ABC's Dancing with the Stars, fitness guru, or even TV host Ryan Seacrest’s girlfriend. After turning heads in the 2011 remake of Footloose and holding her own against Hollywood heavyweights Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin in Rock of Ages last year, Hough (pronounced "huff") will soon grace big screens in a starring role opposite Josh Duhamel in Safe Haven, a romance adapted from the novel by Nicholas Sparks. Here, the Utah native shares her health and well-being tips.

You've rocked fake eyelashes, spray tans, hair extensions -- the works. Do you have a signature beauty tip?

"Beauty comes from within. Whatever you put in your body -- food or anything internally -- is going to show up there. I hardly wear any makeup when it's just me hanging out. If I'm going out I sometimes get carried away. I'm a girly-girl! I love La Mer's tinted moisturizer, Voluminous Mascara by L'Oreal, and L'Oreal's Crayon Grande Lipcolor -- not lipstick, not a gloss. I'm obsessed! I own every single color."  

As the star of "Safe Haven" you put in long hours. How do you unwind after a demanding day?

"I travel with my dogs. They take my mind off of everything stress-related, and I get my playtime. I also sleep as much as possible, and drink tons of water. When we were shooting Safe Haven in North Carolina, it was extremely hot. Toward the end we were shooting 20 hours a day, and sleeping just four. When we finished, I slept afterward!"

What's your go-to healthy snack on the set?

"The crafts services table is terrible! It's tough to be disciplined. If I'm hungry or thirsty I don't always know which -- I just know I'm craving something. So I do an iced herbal tea. And almonds, always. I cut up vegetables and put apple cider vinegar on them, with salt and pepper. Or snack on some hummus."
