When Julianne Hough was 10 years old, she lived in London, away from her parents in Utah, studying dance. That's when the abuse began, she says. "I was abused, mentally, physically, everything," she says in Cosmopolitan's February issue, on newsstands Jan. 8. While attending the prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Arts, she says the adults around her took advantage of her being without parental supervision: "I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer." "I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy façade because that was my job and my life," she adds. »
