Joe Manganiello is happy to get naked when filming episodes for ‘True Blood.’ The 35-year-old star plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux in the HBO series and has no problem with revealing his butt when he transforms from occult animal to human because he thinks it would be unrealistic for his character to magically have clothes.
Joe said: “As far as the butt cheek stuff goes, it just makes sense. It’s not gratuitous; it’s realistic. If you’re a werewolf and you transform, you lose everything and there are your butt cheeks. The show is a deconstruction of supernatural creatures. It’s not like other werewolf projects, where you magically reappear with tiny jean shorts on.”
‘Magic Mike’ star Joe works hard to stay in shape for his role in ‘True Blood’ and says he feels like he has to look good to play a werewolf. Joe didn’t mention if he uses anabolic steroids or human growth hormone like some other celebs. Sylvester Stallone is well known for abusing steroids and was in fact arrested in Australia for bring them into that country illegally.
Joe spoke to Out mag: “I like working hard. It’s my letter of gratitude to Alan Ball for giving me this opportunity. Vampires are animated corpses. They can get away with not looking like they go to a gym. I’m a wild animal — that’s how I should look.”
Go for it Joe – keep on pumping that iron! If ‘True Blood’ ends you can always be a model. Joe looks like he is in amazing shape and is he uses steroids, then so what? Do you think Joe uses performance enhancing drugs to attain and maintain his amazing physique? Sound of in the comments below.
