Julianne Hough chose the wrong week to strip down for a magazine cover.
The Dancing with the Stars judge positively sizzles on the front of Shape’s latest issue, donning a fishnet top over a red hot bikini.
However, she happens to be doing so at the same time that a butt naked Kim Kardashian is covering Paper, meaning very few eyeballs will be attached to Hough’s gorgeous pictorial.
Still, Hough has our attention at least, especially when discussing how she keeps her figure in such tight form.
“I like to shock my body by doing different things,” she tells the December issue of Shape. “When I was on tour, even though I was dancing two hours a night, I felt I needed more, so I started doing dance moves with ankle or wrist weights on.”
The bombshell also talks to the publication about her balanced diet and her early morning workouts with trainers Astrid McGuire and/or Tracy Anderson.
Hough is also branching more than ever into acting these days – and she’s not shy about going out for pretty much any role.
“If I’m reading for a part, I’ll transform myself into the character,” she explains. “I love the whole process and always tell my agents: ‘Put me in the room – I’ll audition for anything.’ That’s my motto.”
This issue of Shape hits newsstands on November 17.
