Julianne Hough reveals shocking new details about her youth in the February issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.
The Safe Haven actress tells the mag that she was abused as a child.
"While I was in London, I was abused, mentally, physically, everything."
"I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer," Hough explains. "I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy facade because that was my job and my life. But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl. I wanted so much love."
How she feels about it now?
"I'm a very forgiving person, and I don't want to hurt anybody," she explains. "What's past is past."
In the film Safe Haven, Hough plays Katie, who eventually falls in love with a widower, after escaping an abusive relationship with an ex-boyfriend.
Safe Haven opens in theaters on February 14.
