Ryan Seacrest doesn't talk much about his relationship with singer-actress-dancer Julianne Hough, but Hough, on the other hand, has been happy to share some scoop lately when it comes to their romance. In the latest issue of InStyle Makeover, the "Rock of Ages" star confesses she had initial concerns about dating the media mogul.

"I was reluctant because he is such an influential guy, and what if it didn't work out," she admits. "Our first date, I was so nervous that I just sat there and interviewed him with questions like, 'Are you loyal?' and 'Are you close to your family?'" Two years later, Hough couldn't be happier. "I'm very in love, and it feels great," the 24-year-old shares. "I feel like I'm more comfortable in my own skin. You see me instead of all the makeup and hair."

And speaking of makeup, Hough has made some changes to her look since her days as a pro dancer on "Dancing With the Stars," by going a bit more natural. "I was constantly in full makeup with my hair curled. I always had extensions and a fake tan. It was an adjustment when I stopped wearing so much stage makeup," she explains. "When I put on makeup, I'm always reminding myself that less is more. There is Playboy hot, and there is granola hot. Right now? I feel like I am in between."

She also feels like she's got a bit more meat on her bones these days … thanks to her 37-year-old beau. But we're not so sure. "I'm 20 pounds heavier than I was when we started dating," Hough claims. "And now we always have great wine, and I can tell the difference. So I told him, 'You ruined my life because I can't go to a friend's house and drink cheap wine anymore.'"

Ah, the problems of the rich and famous.
