Hough: 1D are my guilty pleasure

Julianne Hough has revealed One Direction have made it onto her playlist.

The X Factor boy band's hit What Makes You Beautiful is the tune of the moment for the Rock Of Ages actress.

"I wanted to hate that song because it was so cheesy and corny, but it's like my favourite song. I love it - it's a guilty pleasure, it really is," she admitted.

Blushing, she added: "I don't even know what they look like. They're probably 12."

Julianne - who previously starred in Footloose - plays naive wannabe singer Sherrie, who moves to LA from a small town, which mirrors the actress and singer's real life.

"It was scary. It's always scary coming to a new place, but especially here where everybody is trying to do the same thing," she recalled.

"I was really lucky because I had my dancing to get my foot in the door, but there's always going to be somebody more talented, more beautiful than you, always."

Life wasn't always easy for the 23-year-old, who is dating American TV host Ryan Seacrest.

"It was really hard. I lived with a bunch of models, and I was like the butch roommate," she said. "I was the short one who never wore make-up, and they were these tall, gorgeous, beautiful models. And I was constantly working. I would get up in the morning and come back, and they'd still be in their pyjamas."

:: Rock Of Ages is in cinemas now.
