Julianne Hough is ready to hit the big screen in the Hollywood remake of “Footloose” next year, but she sat down recently with ET to talk about the big rumor about her being engaged to “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest in addition to filming the project, her time on “Dancing With The Stars.” Will she ever return to the “DWTS” stage?

The dancer was set to return to “DWTS” this season after taking a year off to work on her music. In that time, she released a country music album. Yes, she is multi-talented, but her filming scheduled for “Footloose” conflicted with the “DWTS” schedule, so she will return next season hopefully.

In the 80s remake, she is playing the role made famous by Lori Singer opposite Kevin Wormald. She didn’t say much about her relationship with Ryan Seacrest, but she was quick to deny the rumors that he had proposed. She didn’t deny they were an item though!

She did talk briefly about this season of “Dancing with the Stars” where her brother is partner to Jennifer Grey. She had this to say: “Growing up watching ‘Dirty Dancing,’ she was a huge inspiration to me to be a dancer, to be an actress, to follow my dreams — and to watch her … and my brother dance, it was so emotional, very inspiring, and she just was beautiful and stunning; it was just really beautiful to watch.”

Hopefully fans of Julianne will once again see her on “DWTS” dance floor. Watch her Entertainment Tonight interview below. Go here for the latest in entertainment news and gossip.
