“Rock of Ages” star Julianne Hough has a mad crush on her co-star Tom Cruise, and she is not exactly trying to hide it. The actress was on “LIVE! with Kelly” to discuss a scene that was so steamy, it had to be cut from the film.

“It was a little too hot and steamy and sexy, it will be on the director’s cut, though ... Let’s just say I’ll always have that in my back pocket, that I gave Tom Cruise a lap dance,” Hough said.

It’s a shame, too, because Hough reportedly took her role as Sherrie Christian in “Rock of Ages” specifically for that lap dance. PopSugar caught up with the star at the Spike Guys’ Choice Awards, where she gushed about Cruise.

“You have no idea, he is the sexiest thing I have seen, besides my boyfriend,” she giggled. Hough and boyfriend Ryan Seacrest have been together for two years. He even faked a proposal on “American Idol” this year, much to viewing audiences’ disappointment.
