'Paradise' Star
Julianne Hough Dishes
On Her Bad-Girl Past


In her new movie Paradise, Julianne Hough plays a good girl gone bad. But in real life, it sounds like the 25-year-old star is quite the opposite.

Dancer-turned-actress Julianne tells Vulture.com that she drew on some events from her past to play Lamb, a religious girl who has a crisis of faith and goes off to try a life of sin in Las Vegas, in the new flick.

"I did steal my sister's money," Julianne admits about her rebellious childhood days. Growing up in a close-knit conservative Mormon family, Julianne usually was too scared to do anything bad.

"I think she had like $70 that she earned from being an extra on Touched by an Angel from when she was in Utah. I stole her money, and me and my friend went to the mall. I remember we went to Hot Topic and bought all the fake piercings, those magnetic piercings, and crop tops and, for some reason, silky underwear."

However, Julianne's antics were quickly shut down when her brother, Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough, spotted her at the mall and made her go home and apologize. Later in the interview, she admits to having smoked pot and given a lap dance, plus she confesses to liking tequila.
