Julianne Hough shows off her bikini body on the beach with her dogs

Julianne Hough

Julianne Hough is currently in Southport, North Carolina filming Safe Haven, which is an adaptation of yet another insufferable Nicholas Sparks’ novel. On Monday afternoon, she took advantage of a break in her schedule to hit the beach in a neon orange (pink?) bikini. As you can see, that dancer’s body is still going strong, and Julianne has quite the athletic build going on. Julianne might be an uninspired actress, but her body looks fantastic. She’s practically impossible to cut up, right?

Unfortunately, one of our photo agencies has decided to criticize Julianne’s figure in these photos, which were taken in broad daylight and thus don’t boast the advantage of flattering lighting (much like the situation with Scarlett Johansson’s bikini bod from earlier this year). As such, this lighting would be unforgiving to virtually all women because — let’s face it — there’s a reason that professional bikini photo shoots usually take place in the early morning or very late afternoon.

Still, these photos really are worth it for the puppies involved. You guys know how I am about doggie photo ops.

Like I’ve said before, Julianne is capable of taking the occasional bad photo at a bad angle, which can be exacerbated by a sketchily-constructed dress, but her body is insane. Further, she’s actually running in some of these photos, and practically nobody looks their best while running. I usually look like I’m trying not to die while running, and Julianne looks like she’s managing to at least masquerade that feeling.

    The next aniston… Anyway nice bikini

    She looks fantastic. And people need to deal with whatever “flaws” they see. In fact they should wake up and visit a public pool or beach to see what people really look like in swimsuits.

    It’s just sick how women are criticized for looking anything less than flawless. It’s simply not possible.

    Love her! She looks great, I miss her in DWTS.

    I’ll never get why this plain Jane, Kate Hudson wannabe gets acting roles. She can dance, yes, but I just can’t warm to her in acting roles.
    Love how all the stars are taking out their extensions for the summer. Lohan take note!

  6. Bob says:

    She looks fantastic without any Photoshopping. Most women are way to critical of each other. Most women would love to have a body like that and most guys would kill to be with a girl like that. Including me!

  7. Birdix says:

    Nice thing is–she looks completely comfortable in her skin.

  8. Chordy says:

    She’s a fair skinned girl wearing a bikini in bright, harsh light. These pictures actually prove that she has one of the most slammin bodies on planet Earth. In this light, you can see every little hint of cellulite that your body even thought of producing, and Julianne Hough has none. NONE! Man, our society’s perception of what a woman’s body should look like are sadly and grossly skewed if a single person looks at these pictures and has anything critical to say about the shape this woman is in. I mean, wow.

    My sister lives in Southport and just met her the other day and said she has a fantastic figure, muscular and very healthy looking, much nicer looking than some of the other actresses who are so painfully thin they look sick.

    I shudder to think of what my scantily clothed body would look like in mid-sprint. She looks awesome.

  11. Ramona Q says:

    Safe Haven, gah! It’s “haven”. A haven is safe by definition.

  12. Carolina says:

    She reminds me of Renee Zellweger in these pictures.. anyone else see that? Down to the hair and glasses. She looks great, regardless.

    You know, if we had more photos like this without the attempt at shaming the celeb that a lot of mags do (you just know this would run in, say, Star magazine with some awful headline saying Julianne’s getting soft or something) then I think we’d all feel a lot better about our own bodies. Obviously Julianne is in fantastic shape and looks amazing, and it’s comforting to see that someone who is super-fit can still take an unflattering photo, or that her body can look kind of weird if she’s caught at an odd moment. It doesn’t mean that she doesn’t look great, it just means that ALL bodies look weird when you catch them at a weird moment, and that’s so comforting when you’re comparing yourself to the red-carpet photos of celebs with perfect lighting and makeup and angles, and thinking “why don’t I look like that when my friend takes a candid of me?”
