Julianne Hough Talks Married Life, the Morning Routine That Gives Her Energy, and Her Struggle With Endometriosis

Julianne Hough is sitting barefoot and cross-legged on a twin bed in a SoHo, New York City, apartment, gushing about married life. “I feel so much more sexy,” she says. “It’s so awesome. I love being married so much.” There’s definitely a slumber party vibe happening, what with all the talk about boys and sex (kind of), and it’s hard not to imagine you’re in the sleepover scene in Grease—the live TV version starring Julianne as Sandy (if you missed it, at least Google her singing "Hopelessly Devoted to You").

Utah-born Julianne—Jules to her friends—the youngest of five, is 29 now, and she’s come a long way since her debut, at 18, as one of the pros on Dancing with the Stars. In the past decade, she’s done movies (Footloose, Rock of Ages) and TV (aside from Grease Live!, she has spent a handful of seasons as a DWTS judge) and released a self-titled album, which hit number three on the Billboard 200 chart. Earlier this year, she and her brother, Derek, starred in MOVE Beyond, a live dance stage show that sold out venues such as Radio City Music Hall.

Now she’s so big-time that her wedding (to Canadian ice hockey player Brooks Laich, 34, in July) was on the cover of People. But in this bedroom today, wearing all-black athleisure and exuding her signature super-positive energy, there is not one ounce of prtentiousness. Jumping up to show the occasional dance or workout move, she is just goofy, down-to-earth Jules.

Brooks can have, like, a tub of oatmeal, and I’m like, “I would throw up.” When I finish the workout, I finish the protein shake. Then I come home and have a bowl of oatmeal and berries or something like that.

Anything else about endo you wish people knew?

For me, especially with this campaign [I'm partnering with], Get in the Know About ME in Endometriosis, it’s that it's OK to talk about these kinds of things. In the past, it was kind of a hush-hush thing, but it’s a way of life. My husband is the most sporty, Canadian, manly of men, and so he doesn’t know anything to do with women in that sense, so for me to tell him, he was like, “Wait, what?” But now he’s so open about it. And by the way, to be in my family, you have to know that the word “vagina” is gonna be out there all the time. That’s how we end all of our conversations—something about vaginas. [Laughs]

Favorite healthy snack? Hummus and veggies and always fruit. Perfect Bars are yummy little protein bars.

#Vacationgoals: They say once you get bit by the Africa bug, you don't want to go anywhere else. And it's totally true. Next I want to go to Rwanda, Botswana, and Tanzania.

Netflix and (literally) chill: I'm so late to the party with Making a Murderer, but it's so great.

Go-to cocktail: I made this up: It's Hendrick's Gin, St-Germain, a splash of grapefruit, mint, and lime. It is so good, but it is so dangerous, because you can't taste the alcohol. One and you're done.
