Two time winner of Dancing With The Stars and actress, Julianne Hough, showed off her slim figure in a simplistic red bikini on Southport Beach yesterday (July 15). The star was not alone, her two pups Lexi and Harley accompanied her at the beach.

The actress tweeted about the experience “Fun day at the beach http://instagr.am/p/NHY8x3Cf2a/ ” The instagramed pics display her scruffy beloved hounds rolling around the sands with the backdrop of a picturesque gorgeous ocean in the background. Longtime boyfriend Ryan Seacrest was unable to join in on the beach day due to his work duties with hosting his radio show.

The 23-year-old actress is in Southport working on her latest project Safe Haven. The film is helmed by Swedish director, Lasse Hallstrom, best known for his works with romantic films such as Chocolat and Dear John featuring Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried.

The film version is based on Nicolas Sparks’s novel published in 2010. The story follows a woman caught between two love interests in her new home in Newport while battling a past that haunts her.45-year-old Sparks shares about his inspiration for the dramatic novel as the theme of domestic abuse is a constant throughout. His inspiration draws from his wisdom and exposure to various facets of media. “It had been a long time since I’d written anything to do with danger. I think the last one was The Guardian—and that was published eight or nine years ago—and that’s been a fan favorite. So I thought,“OK, what’s an element of danger I can put into a new story?” said Sparks.

As for the on-screen version, Hough plays the role of female lead character Katie Feldman opposite Transformers actor Josh Duhamel.
