Ladies, if you're in need of some new eye candy, look no further. People magazine rounded out its list of Hollywood’s hottest bachleors, and the most eligible, Joe Manganiello, the hunky werewolf from True Blood, certainly gets our nod of approval.
"I am part Sicilian," Manganiello said. "I am passionate. I am a hot-blooded person. If you don't like spicy, then maybe I'm not for you."
Think you can handle the heat?
Manganiello’s intensity carries over from the film set to the weight room. The 37-year-old star, who makes his directorial debut with his new documentary La Bare, wrote a guide to sculpting a ripped build in his book Evolution after reforming his own workout regimen.
“I was not blessed with the genes to put on muscle weight,” he told the NY Daily News. “I’ve never touched a steroid. I had to bust my ass.” Manganiello’s swoon-worthy six-pack will soon be on full display when he reprises his role as a male stripper in the upcoming Magic Mike sequel.
But there’s more than meets the eye with this heartthrob! Asked about who his first crush was, Manganiello revealed his nerdy side and confessed that it was Princess Leia. He also gushed about his favorite body part ("That part of a woman's neck where it meets the jaw...it's heaven," he says). And while he may be currently on the market, this bachelor won’t last long. Ultimately, "I'm at my best when I have someone to wake up next to," he told People.
