Hough: Meeting Cruise made me swoon

Julianne Hough joked that she didn't need to act in her fainting scene when she started working with Tom Cruise

Rock Of Ages star Julianne Hough has joked she didn't have to do any acting when her character meets Tom Cruise for the first time in the musical.

The Top Gun actor plays rock god Stacee Jaxx, who is followed everywhere by hoards of groupies, and waitress Sherrie, played by Julianne, faints the first time she meets him.

Julianne joked she fainted "every time" she saw Tom. She added: "There wasn't a lot of acting going on when Sherrie first meets Stacee, that was like Julianne meeting Tom. I was literally like 'Okay let's do this!'."

She revealed: "Tom was committed and dedicated to being Staceee Jaxx the rock star. It was hard not to get that same vibe off of him."

Meanwhile, Malin Akerman, who plays Rolling Stone journalist Constance in the movie, said playing a rock chick was easy as she is married to Roberto Zincone, drummer for The Petalstones, in which she used to sing.

She and Tom Cruise share some extremely steamy scenes in the film, including rolling around in their underwear on a pool table.

Malin laughed: "It was great, we had so much fun. We were laughing all the time because it was so silly. There we were doing the craziest scenes and we had an absolute blast."

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
