Julianne Hough reckons that 'age is irrelevant' but admits that her boyfriend Ryan Seacrest is the “oldest man” that she's dated.

The 'Rock Of Ages' actress reckons that the 14-year age gap isn't a problem for her but his wealth did. According to Julianne, Ryan got in touch through email but she was very cautious before arranging a date despite all of her friends suggesting that they would make a great match.

“I’ve never dated anyone my age but Ryan is definitely the oldest man I’ve dated. Age is irrelevant I think,” she said, according to Showbiz Spy.

“Mutual friends would be like, ‘You guys would match perfectly.’ And then eventually when I was single, he emailed me. I was very cold."

She then added: "I was nervous about dating him because he is a very scary person. He’s powerful and influential. I was like, ‘No, no, no’ but it just ended up happening.

“Our inside joke is that we have to schedule scheduling hanging out. But it somehow works.”

Despite the actress's fondness for sexy dresses and risque dance moves, Julianne was actually raised as a Mormon and had a strict childhood.

“We learned about being humble, thoughtful and grateful, always to see the good in people,” she said. “No sex before marriage, no drinking alcohol, no drugs, no dating before you are 16, pornography is not good. The thinking is there are certain things that pollute your mind, that aren’t giving you great direction."

She continued: “I still try to be a good person — yeah, I like a glass of wine with dinner and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. I think a lot of rules are to guide and protect people from going too far, I know where my limit is — everything in moderation.”
