‘AGT’ Judge Julianne Hough Poses Nude And Tells Husband ‘I’m Not Straight’ — Via Women’s Health Mag
AGT judge Julianne Hough appears nude on the cover of Women’s Health, and that’s not the only revealing thing about her new interview with the magazine. The 31-year-old dancer also opens up about her sexuality, sharing with her husband that she’s “not straight.”
Julianne’s nude photo shoot is for the September 2019 “Naked Strength” issue of Women’s Health. “I didn’t want to do a demure shoot where I was trying to cover my body,” she told the magazine. “I wanted to do something where I was free.”
Julianne Hough Reveals She’s “Not Straight”
Julianne shared that she underwent a “massive transformation” after marrying husband Brooks Laich in 2017, which included developing her new dance method KINRGY.
“I was connecting to the woman inside that doesn’t need anything, versus the little girl that looked to him to protect me,” she said. “I was like, ‘Is he going to love this version of me?’ But the more I dropped into my most authentic self, the more attracted he was to me. Now we have a more intimate relationship.”
Because of this, Julianne chose to share something about her sexuality that Brooks didn’t know: “I [told him], ‘You know I’m not straight, right?’ And he was like, ‘I’m sorry, what?’ I was like, ‘I’m not. But I choose to be with you.'”
Julianne doesn’t go any further in labeling her sexuality, but she does express how freeing it is to share it: “I think there’s a safety with my husband now that I’m unpacking all of this, and there’s no fear of voicing things that I’ve been afraid to admit or that I’ve had shame or guilt about because of what I’ve been told or how I was raised.”
Why Julianne Hough Chose To Pose Nude
In a video on the KINRGY Instagram account, Julianne shares why she chose to pose nude for Women’s Health, after turning down more revealing shoots in the past.
“It hasn’t been something that felt important to me,” Julianne said of previous offers to show skin. However, she said the offer from Women’s Health came “at the perfect time” for her, because of the transformation she has undergone in the past year.
“It’s more of a metaphor to me. It is not necessarily about showing my physical body,” she said. “It’s more about what this journey was for me this year, about shedding and de-layering and coming back to the core and the essence of who I am and how I got there.”
Julianne Hough Gets Honest
Julianne, who just started as a judge on AGT this season, has been very open about her personal life in recent months. That includes talking about her experience with endometriosis, and how it affects her sex life with her husband.
Brooks recently revealed that he and Julianne are trying IVF treatment in the hope of conceiving a child, adding his belief that there shouldn’t be any “shame or guilt” associated with the choice.
