Julianne Hough seemingly addresses Ryan Seacrest relationship, admits to feeling ‘freedom’ after breakup
Julianne Hough is seemingly reflecting on her past relationship with Ryan Seacrest.
The actress appeared for an Instagram Live conversation with Valeria Lipovetsky on Nov. 10 where she discussed her personal life at length and explained how a past relationship left her feeling like she didn’t deserve the life she was leading.
“It was 2013 and I had just gotten out of a relationship that was very high profile,” she explained (via E! News). “I was on private planes and yachts and living in a very, very well-off house and my life was pretty different from where I grew up.”
She noted that she got out of that relationship partly because she wanted to build a similar life for herself but on her own merit.
“I kind of felt like I didn’t deserve it,” she explained.
Seacrest and Hough broke up in 2013 after two years of dating, leading many to assume that he’s the high-profile man she was talking about during her interview. The outlet notes that, at the time, the duo cited conflicting schedules as the reason for their split.
She also noted that she struggled to find friends her own age after the breakup given that her ex was 15 years her senior. However, after meeting a handful of girlfriends, she began a phase of her life in which she enjoyed her freedom as a single person. She noted that she “did some certain things that I am not proud of” while attending Coachella before reflecting on how the experience shaped her life and career going forward.
“During that year, it was kind of my wild year of abandon and freedom and I realized that the pendulum swing went from one side to the extreme,” she said. “I was like, ‘OK, there’s got to be something in the middle where I can find fulfillment without having to be so dynamic and extreme.'” – Source
