Kenny Wormald is having the last laugh.

Once bullied for being a male dancer, the Footloose actor, 27, shows off his fancy footwork in one of the most anticipated movies of the season and recently performed a seductive number in front of millions on Dancing with the Stars with Julianne Hough.

"I used to get made fun of ... especially growing up in Boston," Wormald told Celebuzz. "Kids are terrible, they don't realize how heavy words can be."

Years later, his haters now kiss up to him.

There's no denying that Julianne Hough and her Footloose costar Kenny Wormald have chemistry.

During the same week that they partied together in N.Y.C. and participated in a touchy-feely performance on Dancing with the Stars, reports surfaced that the talented twosome also made out.

"It's all completely untrue," Hough's publicist tells PEOPLE of the rumors.

How can something so pointless be so much fun?

This update of the '84 teen classic that gifted us with Kevin Bacon and a killer soundtrack has slicker dance moves but keeps the original's infectious spirit.

Julianne returns to the ballroom Tuesday night a bonafide movie star, thanks to her leading role in the soon-to-be-released remake of Footloose. And she will dance "on the very stage that basically started everything," she says.

"I definitely got a little emotional," she says about returning to the DWTS studio.
