Julianne Hough: Dancing makes me feel good

Julianne Hough feels most confident when she's busting some moves.

The 26-year-old actress began dancing competitively as a child but found her place in Hollywood, where she landed roles in films such as Rock of Ages and Burlesque.

Thanks to her early introduction to sport, the blonde star has an amazing figure and when she hits the dance floor, she's at her most confident.

"I love my body the most when I'm dancing," she smiled to the British edition of Women's Health magazine.

"The way you move directly impacts the way you feel. You're completely present. It's the same kind of meditation as yoga, but it's more upbeat and sassy."

Alongside exercise, Julianne keeps an eye on her diet, reasoning she can't bust moves if she's full of wine and pasta. She incorporates quinoa and a lot of vegetables into her meals but also doesn't deprive herself if she fancies the odd cheat day.

"I'm not going to eat that kind of thing every day, but if I want to have a pizza, I'm going to do it," she explained. "If you're sneaking it in, you eat more. Sit down and enjoy the splurge!"

Julianne is currently showing off her dance wisdom as a judge on Dancing With the Stars and recently hit the stage alongside brother Derek to show everyone how it's done.
