Dancing with the Stars pro turned singer-actress Julianne Hough reveals, in the new issue of Interview magazine, her amazing good looks. And some fun facts about Rock of Ages, including her giving Tom Cruise a lap dance.

In a scene that was cut, tragically.

During the interview, Hough explained that Ryan Seacrest, 37, calls the role “a little sexy,” which prompted the details on the lap dance in question.

“There was one scene we did that ended up not making it into the film, but it was a really great number – ’Rock You Like a Hurricane,” Hough said.

“It was in the strip club, and I gave Tom a lap dance in the scene.”

So, why exactly was it cut?

“The movie flowed better without it, so I understand, but at the same time, I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. I had to do that, and it’s not even in the movie?”‘

Not that everyone will be disappointed.

“I was in a bra and underwear,” she admits, “and was basically giving him a lap dance, so my father will probably like that scene getting cut out.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: There’s always deleted scenes on DVD. Fingers crossed.
