Ryan Seacrest better watch it!

Julianne Hough might be dating the American Idol host, but it's Footloose costar Kenny Wormald that's kissing her on the silver screen!

So how did Wormald, 27, like smooching the former Dancing With the Stars pro? "It was cool," he told Us Weekly at a Cinema Society screening of Footloose Wednesday in NYC. "Ryan's cool [too]," he added.

"[Julianne is] the hardest working person on the planet, and I'm not just saying that to be politically correct," Wormald gushed. "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 knows remaking an iconic classic is a big responsibility. "We stayed really true to the original," he told Us. "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." 

Footloose opens in theaters Friday.
