It looks like for Julianne Hough, entering her thirties is the best thing ever! The dancer and actress has managed to do more in her life, career-wise before turning thirty than most people their whole lives but that doesn’t mean she’s lost purpose. Apparently, the woman is ready for a brand new chapter!
While at the premiere of her film, Bigger, in Las Vegas, she talked to ET, revealing: ‘Maybe because I’m 30 now, I feel much more grounded. I think that a few years ago, the applause and the room full of people and the excitement, that would have been really cool. But now I think I’m in a place of just like, the artistry.’

So excited for Bigger’s U.S. Premiere TOMORROW!! We started filming nearly a year ago and I couldn’t be more excited to see it on the BIG screen. 😉 I feel such gratitude for the opportunity to play someone who I can relate to and who advocated such an important message of body positivity and living a healthy lifestyle. See it IN THEATERS OCT.12!!!! 💪🏋️♂️ #bettyweider
Julianne went on to dish that ‘Even before I was 20, I felt like I already had 4 or 5 different chapters of my life, and then 20 to 30, I feel like I had 4 or 5 chapters as well. So it is sort of just reflective of all the different parts of who I am.’
She then noted that she is very grateful she does not ‘have to be just one thing.’
‘That has been my journey this year, for sure, is just acknowledging, accepting and going through those parts of me. I’m digging in. I am trying to get wise, you know?’ the former Dancing With the Stars judge added.
Hough and her man, NHL star Brooks Laich tied the knot last July.

My husband @brookslaich knocked my 30th birthday out of the park… and all the way to Machu Picchu ⛰Coming here has always been a dream of mine and to be able to celebrate a monumental closing of a chapter and beginning of a new one, is truly indescribable! I have been on such a journey the last few years but especially in the last 7 months. Brooks has been there every step of the way supporting me in all of my out of the box, wild ideas and dreams… discovering new parts of me I didn’t even know existed. I couldn’t be happier turning 30 and feeling so much more of what life truly is about. #unfiltered and totally #unknown -Life is absolutely remarkable! Thank you Brooks for completely blowing my mind with your thoughtful and adventurous spirit! I love you so much I can’t even handle myself! #machupicchu #pachamamma #fathersun #bestbirthdayever #dressedtoimpress 😜 #divinefeminine #spire #energyrich
A few months after, she began shooting for Bigger, and her role needed the actress to transform her body.
‘It’s like he gets a new wife! Every 6 months, there’s a new version,’ the celeb said about her hubby’s reaction to the curves she got for the movie.
Speaking of marriage and change, Hough shared that the two work so well together because not only do they accept change, they embrace it.
‘You get married, and then a year goes by and it’s like, ‘Holy cow who are we now? We are completely different people now, in the best way possible.’ I read something that it is not about changing your spouse, but about being in a relationship in which we are both encouraged to change ourselves and grow together.’
Julianne also explained that ‘I am just now finding a new belief in myself 11 years after getting a little sidetracked for a minute. Finding that belief in yourself once again, you keep having to find it again. Hopefully, it inspires people to do whatever it is in their vision to make it happen. It is actually the greatest time in life. I am so excited. This next phase and chapter are going to be awesome, and there is a lot of momentum happening right now.’
