Cat Deeley: All-Smiles for Vegas September 2013

Posted Friday August 23, 2013 8:05 AM GMT

Taking time away from her hosting duties on "So You Think You Can Dance," Cat Deeley scored the cover spot on Vegas magazine's September 2013 issue.

While looking absolutely gorgeous in designer duds from Gucci and Tiffany & Co for the Brian Bowen Smith-shot spread, the 36-year-old star dished about her marriage and her reasoning on why the dance show is so popular.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Deeley's interview below. For more, be sure to visit Vegas!

On "So You Think You Can Dance":
“We were left alone to do our own thing for so long, but we found our niche. I never feel terrified. I feel excited and my adrenaline goes and I love it. The audience likes when people mess up, because every single person does in every day of their lives, but it’s how you handle it when you fall over or when you drop the mic. If you handle it with a bit of charm, the audience loves it.”

On her uniqueness:
“I don’t really take myself too seriously because I can’t. I’m never going to be that sophisticated woman who’s so put together that her bra and knickers always match. I’ve reached the grand old age of 36, and I’m fully embracing the fact that I’m not perfect, I’m a bit klutzy my nose bends one way, and I don’t have any boobs. I’m quite fun to hang out with and to go and have cocktails with-and I think perfection is really boring, actually.”

On her long distance marriage:
“We have an absolutely lovely time when we’re together, because we’re like, ‘Oh, I have to go again in a minute.’ All my friends are really jealous of it, weirdly. They’re like, ‘What I wouldn’t give to have my husband get out of my hair sometimes for eight days!’”

On her young audience:
“I didn’t want to continue this myth that everybody’s perfect. I just don’t think it’s very healthy for young women who don’t know the industry. It’s taken a village of people to make me look like that. Some of the best magazines are so creative and the images are pieces of art, but I think it should be made clear that that’s not reality. It’s important that women aren’t faced with this idea of perfection and trying to aim for something that’s absolutely unattainable.”
