We ain’t even mad at this one…
True Blood & Magic Mike Star Joe Manganiello Voted PEOPLE’s Hottest Bachelor
Joe Manganiello knows what he’s looking for in a woman – he just hasn’t found her yet.
“I am part Sicilian,” he tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “I am passionate. I am a hot-blooded person. If you don’t like spicy, then maybe I’m not for you.”
The star, 37, who plays sexy werewolf Alcide on HBO’s True Blood and makes his directorial debut with the new documentary La Bare, opens up about everything from his first crush (Princess Leia!) to his perfect kiss (“like you’re off the planet”) to whether he believes in true love.
“I think the crazy love that you fall into in the beginning turns into ‘like’ and ‘need.’ Chris Rock told me that!” says the Pittsburgh native, who is set to reprise his role as a stripper in the upcoming Magic Mike sequel. “He’s like, ‘Kid, you wanna get married? Listen, there’s love, and you can feel love the first night, but that’s not what it is. It’s, ‘I like you and I need you.'”
No matter what, he says, “I’m at my best when I have someone to wake up next to.”
Yeah, yeah…never mind all that isht he’s talking. Let’s get into the pics, shall we ladies? Hit the flip.
