Julianne Hough stuns as Jolene in Dolly Parton 'Heartstrings' sneak peek

Dolly Parton talks sexual harassment, feminism and why she avoids politics

Country legend Dolly Parton is clearing the air, making known her views on the #MeToo movement and feminism in general. Parton said she has experienced sexual harassment but most likely not to the extent as other women who have spoken up had. The country singer also says that she relates to feminists but is hesitant to label herself as one because she never saw herself in that way.

Julianne Hough embodies the redheaded temptress Jolene in "Dolly Parton's Heartstrings."

In images newly released from Netflix, Parton, 73, is pictured with Hough, 31, who stars as the inspiration for Parton's signature countryballad.

Hough rocks auburn locks and a series of crop tops for the role in the anthology series.
