Joe Manganiello: 'Flaunt' Feature!
Here’s what the 35-year-old True Blood and Magic Mike hunk had to share with the mag:
On not fitting in during his childhood: “I’d always yell at my mom to close the door at night because I wanted monsters to come out of the closet and from under the bed. I really felt like if they existed, they would at least be my friends.”
On why he thinks viewers connect with True Blood: “Honestly it might be the fact that we’re in a global economic recession, and people need this kind of fantasy to get far away from where they’re at … When finances are down werewolves embody people’s fears that the masses are going to turn animalistic – a fear that the have-nots will attack the haves.”
On what the hit HBO show means to him: “I really didn’t feel like I fit in until I got True Blood. I’ve never been more fulfilled in my entire life, from the time I wake up until the time I go to sleep at night. I always felt like something was missing, and I don’t anymore.”
