Joe Manganiello Explains Why He Won't Act with Sofia Vergara

Joe Manganiello is brooding in black and white on the cover of Haute Living‘s July/August issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 38-year-old Magic Mike XXL actor had to share with the mag:

On starting his relationship with fiancee Sofia Vergara: “She had just gotten out of a relationship and I knew that she wanted to be single, but we knew right away, and she knew she was screwed. I said to her, ‘If you need to be single, go do it and do it now if that’s what you need to do,’ and she didn’t. She tried to stay away from actors and I tried to stay away from actresses as much as possible, because of the fear of being away from each other. What happened then was that we wound up in relationships with people who didn’t understand us.”

On why he won’t act with Sofia: “Her fear is that we’d make the next Gigli… I gave her [a] script and was like ‘Please read this. It’s such a good part for you and it’s amazing for me,’ and she said, ‘No, I’m not going to make Gigli,’ and kind of threw it on the ground.”

On doing a third Magic Mike: “All of us just loved hanging out. I would pay to go hang out with these guys for two months. I’d love to do it again.”
