Joe Manganiello on “The Morning Show” in Toronto

Posted on July 08, 2013

Oh, thank God. He groomed.

Isn’t it sad that this is the thought that springs to our minds most often when we see a male star making a little effort? Let’s all make sad faces while we ponder that. Also, let’s feel superior. That’s always the best.



“True Blood” star Joe Manganiello seen heading to the taping of Global’s ‘The Morning Show’ in Toronto.

We don’t hate longer hair on the right guy – and in fact, Joe is one of those guys who looks great with longer hair. But he’d been sporting the shaggy beard and hair for too long. We don’t know about the rest of y’all, but we were getting sick of the look. We’re loving the summertime trim.

The suit’s kind of an ill-fitting mess, but we’ll let that go. He groomed, you guys.

      gimme them boots under my bed.

  • I bet he smells nice too. Mmmmmm.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Ummm hmmmm….. you are so right.

  • Beardslee

    What a sad commentary on male stars when basic grooming is cause for celebration! Oh, the humanity!

    • Kristin McNamara

      That shorter hair is giving me LIFE. Now if only he’d shave the beard off and transform back into the Joe I fell in love with on One Tree Hill in like, 2007 before he was a big star. Man alive was he scrumptious in that show. (And shirtless in like, every one of his scenes.)

  • veriance

    Almost didn’t recognize him with shorter hair. He looks delicious.

    Pale gray suit and medium brown boots? I’m not sold on that pairing.

  • It’s just not his suit. But he looks lovely a bit tidier!

  • hughman

    One Ring to Rule Them All.

    • It is mesmerizingly large.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      My first reaction to your comment was “is his pants’ fabric that thin”?

  • unbornfawn

    The good grooming is carrying the look.

  • Silly Grrl

    I just want to ride him like a big, muscly horse.

    • stephbellard

      Is it just me or does he actually look less bulky here?

      • Silly Grrl

        A little bit. They’re not filming right now, so maybe he slims down a bit when they’re not.

  • Emily

    I really liked his long hair but that beard was 100% unacceptable. The groomed version is HOT.

  • marlie

    I wouldn’t kick him out of bed.

    • I would. So we could do it on the floor.

      • marlie

        Best line of the day.

      • Coolekat

        Good one. I can see it pretty clearly, myself.

      • Prudentia

        Annabelle Archer wins the internet today!

  • Tina Power

    I just wanna nibble that beard right off him. Then make him grow it back and do it again.

  • Emily Compton

    I never found this guy attractive until I just saw these pictures. GROOMING WORKS!

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    When Joe does “scruffy” it’s totally HOT because he looks like a grown-ass-man…. and plenty of it. Um Hm!!
    A lot of the guys trying to do the scruffy look like they are growing their first beard – patchy, wiry, underfed, dirty, homeless stuff – totally gross.

  • Fordzo

    You can all fight over him, he does nothing for me. That suit looks ridiculous.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Oh. Em. Gee. This makes up for no Sausage Friday. Praises be.

  • Rand Ortega

    Really? A werewolf ring? That’s all I can see.

    • formerlyAnon

      When I see such, um, unfortunate-on-a-grown-ass-man jewelry, I always pretend he’s being paid 5 figures to be photographed in it, which is a rational choice. Or it’s a gift from someone he loves. Loves very, very, much. Who might be in, oh, 2nd grade. These are calming and soothing things to imagine.

      • Rand Ortega

        Like Chandler wearing the god awful bracelet Joey gave him on “Friends”. “I pity the fool who puts on my jewelry!”. I truly hope it’s some very profitable product placement.

  • PastryGoddess

    I can’t stop looking at his hands. and that’s all I’m going to say now

  • Tatiana Luján

    I seriously can’t tell if the suit fits or not. He looks hot, that I can tell.
    The boots are terrible with this look.

  • majorbedhead


  • MilaXX

    I never liked the long hair on him, but this hair cut is divine!

  • I want to rub my face in his beard. Also I love his haircut.

    • Lisa McKissack

      I want to rub my face all over him.

  • amber.


  • barbarienne

    This is nice enough, but I still had to go back and look at the pictures of him on the rocks. Because.

  • mickiemonkey

    Werewolf ring? I see a gargoyle.

  • crash1212

    Why can’t these guys find suits that fit them? Is it that hard? Apparently, since so few seem to manage it. Also…is that a King Kong ring? Yes, yes…the grooming is wonderful.

    • somebody blonde

      To be fair, he’s a giant, and he’s pretty damn close to right.

      • demidaemon

        Yes, he has a rather freakish body (by that, I mean unusual–tall and pretty much 99% muscle) so this is as probably as good as it gets, sadly.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    I want that lion head ring for my own self. If it comes with Joe, all the better.

  • Coolekat

    Would love to see this head on top of his jeans tee shirt look. He is gorgeous in an extremely masculine way. He makes me want to purrrrrrrrr

  • Kimberlini

    That’s the best I’ve ever seen him look! Love the look of that beard with his shorter hair.

  • Eric Stott

    Looks like a mobster – a very minor mobster

  • kim bunchalastnames

    well, but now he looks like david boreanaz.

    • girliecue

      Ack! Dammit, you’re right! Loves me some David Boreanaz but now they’ve both lost their uniqueness. Maybe we should double check and have them do a side-by-side. That would make me feel better. In so many ways.

      • sweetestsith

        Shirtless side by side? To get the full effect?

        • girliecue

          Works for me!

  • flamingoNW

    Saw him IRL recently. This short hair not so flattering on him. I was expecting to be rather overwhelmed by his Manganielloness but he was…not so much. Serious bling hound, though. Got a picture of that ring and a serious watch.

    • Synnae

      More details?

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Why can’t he walk around all day in a very revealing speedo?

    • largishbearishAtlish

      forget a speedo, some nice ‘floppy’ boxers would be *MUCH* nicer…speedos tend to hug and hide…

      • formerlyAnon

        I know you. You’re the one who brought up silk boxers the other day, aren’t you?

        Well done.

  • formerlyAnon

    God bless. He shaved his neck and trimmed his beard. Who knew that would be so unusual that I’d find it appealing. And I’m not a fan of beards.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I can’t judge his clothes at all. Ever. I don’t care what he wears. The grey in his beard is killing me.

  • conniemd

    Interesting looking at the fit of the suit. Most ill-fitting suits have wrinkles on the stomach and chest because they are too tight. His suit fits good across the chest, but his arms and legs appear way too buff for the girth of the sleeves and pants. Mmmm. Well-muscled male.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I was never that enamored of his look. Until now. I’m such a sucker for a good haircut and well-groomed, graying facial hair. Yum. Yum. Yum.

  • nannypoo

    Why doesn’t someone fix his collar?

    • largishbearishAtlish

      I thought the same thing, then realized…its a freagin malestar with FACIAL HAIR!!! whothehellcares. Can we count the malestars on the RC with facial hair over 1/2 inch long? go ahead…I’ll wait…..

  • j_anson

    Still not really my type, but wow does he look 1000% better this way.

  • e jerry powell

    Poor fit be damned. Do you know what these pictures are doing to my naughty parts?

  • ankali

    Those pants fit him oddly. I insist that he remove them.

  • joything

    First time I’ve gasped, “Oh, hot DAMN,” at a manstar in a loooooooooooooooonng time. Groom, guys.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    He’s so very yummy.

  • Oh you hot groomed double standard, you. I forgive you the sloppy suit even if I don’t forgive myself for not calling you & your stylist out on it.

  • AnniNoone

    Do you suppose he has his hands waxed?

  • Aside from my OCD kicking in about his collar, I think he looks great. Nice color on the suit.

  • Clueless_Jock

    He looks much older though. Which isn’t a bad thing.

  • Synnae

    The groom was overdue, although I saw a few pap shots last month where his hair gotten long enough to be tied back which looked actually really good.

    The jacket itself is ok, love the colour, and it is tailored to his frame a lot better than most male celebs on the red carpet. The pants however are hemmed just too short and have fallen victim to the curse of linen…
