Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich have been in separate states during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a new interview with Oprah magazine, the 31-year-old actress is explaining why they’re apart during this time.
“Being on tour for three months and traveling and starting a business…it’s a lot. So to be able to be home and stop and pause and look inward and connect back to myself has been glorious,” she shared. “I’ve been on my own. My husband is in Idaho doing lots of yard work…and so we’re kind of doing our separate things right now. But it’s really been a magical time.”
“I think in my 30s, I’ve always been around people, and I’m always trying to create and do a lot of things…but this is new, it’s a little different,” Julianne says. “I don’t feel lonely, but I definitely feel alone. I think there’s a big difference.”
She added, “I feel alone…I miss people a lot, I wanna hug them and talk to them, but I’m really enjoying this time where I can really connect to what’s really important in my life and look forward to when we get out of this, who do I want to step into? Who do I want to arrive in this new world as?”
Earlier, Brooks opened up about being up in Idaho away from Julianne on his podcast.
