Joe Manganiello in West Hollywood

Posted on July 18, 2014

The Hottest Bachelor in Hollywood is not feeling his normal “spicy” self today, it seems.  Shame on all of you, for treating this man like a piece of meat and causing him such pain.


Joe-Manganiello-GOTSNYC-GTRIPCC-Tom-LOrenzo-Site-TLO (1)“True Blood” actor Joe Manganiello is spotted heading to lunch in West Hollywood, California.

Come back, Joe. We’ll comfort you and teach you to walk with your head held high. We’ll bring you back to spicy. And if you won’t listen to us, then at least take a couple lessons from Miss Witherspoon, who knows a thing or two about walking CONFIDENTLY to her car.

    I’d rather watch him not want to have his picture taken than see Reece work a parking lot any day.

    • Shawn EH

      It’s a difficult choice!

      • Jacob Bowen

        Yeah I’m pretty sure I can’t choose which one I would rather look at…

        • Shawn EH

          We can have both!

    • evave2

      Wendy, I’m with you. Also, he looks like an actual human being. I wonder if he was coming back from the gym. No Taylor Swift empty purse look for our JOE.

  • EveEve

    Sausage! Thanks TLo.

  • Grumpy Girl

    Really, dude: you’re heading to lunch dressed like that? I hope it’s take-out that you’re just picking up.

    • MoHub

      I don’t know. Does anyone dress to go to restaurants any more?

      • sugarkane105

        I don’t have the most exciting life in the world, so when I DO go out to eat, I usually dress up much more than this. It’s fun.

      • boweryboy

        I don’t dress to go to a restaurant, but I do put in a bit more effort than this – even if I’m only wearing a tee and shorts.

        • Grumpy Girl

          exactly. With a body like his, he could put in just a tiny bit more effort . . . This truly looks like “laundry day” to me.

    • sugarkane105

      But he’s Captain of the Violent Gentlemen club!

    • Alicia

      He and Taylor Swift have swapped bodies, Freaky Friday-style. So she’s going to the gym in lunch outfits and he is going to lunch in gym outfits. Hilarity ensues.

      • Judih1

        you nailed it perfectly

  • Coolekat

    God almighty!

  • sugarkane105

    I love some good man calves to start my morning.

    • SugarSnap108

      I have a thing for well-developed calves and forearms.

    • marlie

      Those ARMS though…

      • sugarkane105

        Porque no los dos?

        • marlie


  • Phoenix

    are he and sofia over already??

    • GTrain

      i sure hope so

  • MilaXX

    MMmmmmm Love Sausage Friday’s!

  • kmk05

    Is it terrible that I think that, without his face to offset the rest, he’s too buff for me? It looks like he can’t turn around to look back to save his life.

    • Jaime

      While I would not kick him out of bed for eating crackers, I wholly agree – I much prefer leaner muscle. Say, his co-star Alexander. *nod*

    • BLauDGaspode

      I find him to buff, too. Lean and flexible for me please 😉

    • marlie

      He generally isn’t my type, but there’s something about this guy… But otherwise, I agree.

  • Edward Thomas-Herrera

    Sad little hunk… I’d still hit it.

    • yllas

      He’s 6′ 5″. How tall are you?

  • Melanie

    mmmmm. he’s so lovely.

  • majorbedhead

    Ahhhh. What a nice start to the day.

  • Tee

    Thanks you for the sausage breakfast. Much, much more satisfying than that Witherspoon fluff.

  • Anna

    I’ll spend the rest of the day trying to cheer you up, Joe. If you’re still upset in the morning, I’ll cheer you up in the shower too and then we can go to breakfast.

  • MartyBellerMask

    The obligatory Manganiello pics have been posted. I hereby declare Sausage Friday has begun! (**smashes champagne bottle across Joe’s thigh**)

    • decormaven

      Long may it wave!

  • Jaeda Laurez

    His clothes are terrible and irrelevant. i’d climb it like a jungle gym, and I think that’s the real story here.

    • random_poster

      Thank you for getting to the bottom of the matter.

  • colleenjanel

    Awwww … our Patron Saint of Sausage Fridays(TM) has teh sadz. He’s still beautiful, even when overcome with ennui.

  • Thomas

    Yum, but no to the camo shorts. Actually, I don’t really like camo anything. I find it tacky.

    • Wink

      Excellent question. My guess is they notice. Just saying…

    • Alloy Jane

      Oh, I’m sure he gets the once-over, but that’s par for the course if you’re a built dude in that part of town. Or a nice-looking gal, for that matter. But West Hollywood is too full of celebrities for anyone to lose their marbles over seeing them.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    He has the same iPad cover I have! I can now feel a deeper sense of connection…

    • Anapestic

      Is that a smaller-than-usual iPad, or does he just have really big, um, hands?

      • Jessica Freeman

        It’s the mini

        • Anapestic

          Oh, thanks. Way to step all over my dreams.

          • random_poster

            We can still think he has really big hands.

      • Jacqueline Wessel

        I prefer to think he has really big hands.

    • Tom and Lorenzo

      LOL I said the same thing. Lorenzo

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Me too … it’s the second thing I noticed.

  • RescueMe23

    I hear that after that article came out in People Magazine he’s now dating his dream girl Sophia Vergara

    • Imasewsure

      I kind of love the idea of them as a couple…. they are both so larger than life but I thought she was engaged to someone else… oh well, the turnover rate is fast in Hollywoodland!!

      • demidaemon

        I thought she was engaged to someone else? Or is that over? I’m really behind on my celeb gossip after giving up cable and E! News.

  • Danielle

    The patron saint of Sausage Friday never ceases to disappoint.

  • boweryboy


    • Coolekat

      I think you are all alone on this one.

      • alyce1213

        No not alone, he does nothing for me.

      • boweryboy

        I can live with that.

  • lamh

    Aww he does look kinda sad here.

    But as someone sad I’d def still not throw that out of bed.

    I’ll ignore this look for now and just rewatch a clip I saw of Joe showing Conan a little stripper move on Conan’s show

    • Marci Smethurst Wolcott

      That was sweet!

  • shirab

    Not sure if he’s sad or attempting to go incognito. If the latter, he should know that we can ID him just fine without seeing his face.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Pretty sure his backside would suffice for identification purposes.

    • Gatto Nero

      I guess it must get tiring to be stalked by paps everywhere you go.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    I love the notion of walking confidently to one’s car. In my case, it would be because I, somehow, remembered where I parked.

  • Imasewsure

    Alas this is how I like my hot muscle guys to dress…. if they must dress, that is…

    • Anna

      Indeed, once in awhile he requires clothing but my preferred dress code for Joe is: “Birthday Suit Only.”

      • demidaemon

        I agree.

  • holla

    too many late nights with Sofia, lucky girl!

  • FrigidDiva

    All I know is he’s a lot better to look at than this interest report I’ve been working on all day.

  • Bert Keeter

    I’d suggest the paparazzi give him a wide berth…. He doesn’t mess around… I’ve seen him in action… make a photographer turn on his heels and skedattle by just verbaly intimidating him… was AWESOME!

    • Kitten Mittons

      My love for him only grows with that story.

    • sleah_in_norcal

      you SAW him? can i touch you?

      • Bert Keeter

        It will cost you $5…. :)

  • Synnae

    I always have such mixed thoughts about celebs trying to dodge the paps and Joe and his guns show are no exception.
    On the one hand he willing did that People’s cover, worked all the TV shows and announced a hook-up with Sofia Vergara at the exact same time his character is killed off…
    On the other hand, it must really suck to lose your privacy and for Joe being 6’5″- he literally stands out no matter what he looks like- and can’t hide. (at 6’2″ I know that feeling very well). So er yeah…

    • Qitkat

      Even Joe is entitled to those occasional moments of feeling “I wish I wasn’t famous I wish I wasn’t famous I wish I wasn’t famous I wish you guys would go away I wish you guys would go away” 😉

  • Terri Terri

    He’s hot even in laundry-day clothes.

  • marlie

    This is a photo of a celeb who *isn’t* going out and about just for show. He looks like a regular dude running errands. And honestly, I think he’s hotter here than in some of his red carpet ensembles.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    He’s getting too close to my Hate List because he is my height and my (former) build and he looks like that and I never did and never will.

  • Erica Codey-Rucker

    I could teach him some things…none of them involve walking.

  • Qitkat

    Even Joe is entitled to those occasional moments of feeling “I wish I wasn’t famous I wish I wasn’t famous I wish I wasn’t famous I wish you guys would go away I wish you guys would go away”.

  • alyce1213

    I feel he’s a guy who spends a lot of time in front of the mirror, which is a turnoff to me. (Ducks)
    I’m not blind, he’s handsome, but he thinks so too — way too much. (Ducks again)

    • Mink Carlyle

      I am entirely sure you are right. I also think he thinks he’s a talented actor, which he’s not, really. He’s not my cup of tea.

  • Boobs Radley

    Oh, Joe. Your shirt seems to indicate that a game of hockey would cheer you up. So let’s get a rousing game of tonsil hockey going, shall we?

  • demidaemon

    I am confused by his shorts. Is that a drop crotch I am seeing? No, no, no.

    Don’t be sad, Joe. I’m sure there are lots of willing BKs here to give you a shoulder to cry on. Among other things. And I’m one of them.

  • dancho

    WTF is up with those gnarly legs? No hair? :-

  • Man Dala

    He can pound me like a piece of veal.

  • sleah_in_norcal

    violent gentlemen are welcome chez sleah, as long as they look like him…i’m developing a thing for werewolves. the one on penny dreadful ain’t so bad either. but oh how i’ll miss alcide.

  • Fannie Wolston

    That club name mystifies…Violent Femmes = violent mens = violent gentlemen? too many syllables sounds goofy.
    Greasy ears with a pout not sexy

  • Mary Lauer

    Love the kindle in his hand …

    • Mary Lauer

      Okay, iPad mini, not kindle … maybe he has the kindle app tho. 😉
