Joe Manganiello has just been crowned People‘s Hottest Bachelor. But he’s much more than just a pretty face.
Manganiello appears on the cover of this week’s People magazine, and he managed to beat out other Hollywood hotties Liam Hemsworth, Jared Leto and newly single Prince Harry to take the publication’s title.
Even though countless women would love to get their hands on the actor, he revealed to the mag that he’s at his best when he has a lady in his life.
“I’m at my best when I have someone to wake up next to,” he confessed.
However, that doesn’t mean the La Bare star just rushes into love. Nope, he likes to take his time.
“I think the crazy love that you fall into in the beginning turns into ‘like’ and ‘need.’ Chris Rock told me that!” Manganiello confessed. “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.'”
Manganiello’s also a very passionate person, which he credits with being part Sicilian.
“I am part Sicilian. I am passionate. I am a hot-blooded person. If you don’t like spicy, then maybe I’m not for you.”
And as for his favorite thing about a lady? Well, it seems as if his True Blood role of werewolf Alcide is actually not that far off from his real life.
“I’m big into smell,” he said. “It’s funny I got cast as a werewolf. There’s something about the smell on that part of a woman’s neck where it meets the jaw, ahhhh! It’s heaven.”
