Josh Duhamel, Julianne Hough and Cobie Smulders: 'Safe Haven' Set Secrets and Steamy Love Scenes (EXCLUSIVE!)

Pin It
Is 'Safe Haven' the new 'Notebook?' Is Safe Haven the dark side of Nicholas Sparks? That's what Cobie Smulders told us on the Southport, North Carolina set of the upcoming book-turned-movie back in August!

We were lucky enough to see Cobie, Julianne Hough, and Josh Duhamel up close-and-personal as they filmed in the small town and even in the dark, mesquito-filled woods! And, yes, Josh is even more perfect and handsome in person!!!

The film's stars, who were SO down to earth by the way, sat down for interviews in between takes, where they gushed about the film's empowering message, getting geared for those romantic scenes, and their favorite music to listen to on set!

How would Josh describe the movie? "Unpredictable, suspenseful, and romantic!" We like the sound of that!

We of course had to ask Julianne: What's it like being a leading lady in a Nicholas Sparks movie, following in the footsteps of Miley Cyrus, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and more? Hough explained, it's "as good as it gets!"

Oh, and how cute are Julianne's dogs? Seriously....

Make sure to come back for more Safe Haven goodies and be sure to check out the flick when it hits theaters on Valentines Day! Perfect timing, right?
