Footloose star Kenny Wormald has nothing but respect for his costar Julianne Hough.
"She's the hardest working person on the planet, and I'm not just saying that to be politically correct," Wormald told Us Weekly. "She doesn't stop. She's constantly working out with her trainer and working with coaches and this and that. I'd be trying to sleep on a break, and she'd be like exercising in her trailer. She's awesome."
Wormald, 27, also admits that kissing the 23-year-old triple threat on screen was no hardship.
"It was cool," he said. "Ryan's cool [too]," he added, mentioning Hough's equally as hard-working boyfriend, Ryan Seacrest.
The Boston native, who has earned rave reviews for his breakout role in director Craig Brewer's remake of the iconic '80s film, wants to know fans of the original will not be disappointed.
"We stayed really true to the original," he said. "Not with the choreography, but with the actual plot. There's really great dancing. To have the opportunity to actually act in a dance movie that has a really strong plot was really great. It's really not a playlist of dance performances sort of loosely strung together; it's a real movie."
