Joe Manganiello Leaves the Gym in Los Angeles

Posted on August 22, 2014

Y’know, we’re really starting to respect this man-whore for working the shit out of the press this year, “Be Me or Do Me“-style.


Joe-Manganiello-GOTS-LA-BGWBCRHT-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)Joe Manganiello shows off his muscles while leaving a gym in Los Angeles.

Between the publicist-generated magazine covers, insanely high-profile canoodling and  constant post-workout photo ops – every single one of which are celebrity image-management maneuvers we covered extensively in the book – we’re starting to peer closely at all his pictures to see if we can spot a copy of it peeking out of his bag or something. He’s following the T Lo Guide to Celebrity Image Management precepts to perfection. We have to assume he’s got a dog-eared copy with tons of notes in the margins.

Maybe we should start holding private seminars with C-list stars to show them how to rise up the fame ladder.

Also: Yes, darlings. You are absolutely welcome. You can thank us by buying our book.


Your other favorite shameless man-whores.

    • Nancer

      Thanks, uncles! This is just what I needed to start the day right!

    • MinAgain

      It must be Friday.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        It’s raining men, hallelujah!

    • FibonacciSequins

      This is going to be a good day.

      • @Biting Panda

        I needed this. I need Joe. Now, if could just get a weeeee bit closer……

    • Anna

      Can you imagine going to same gym as him?: You can do it Joe, put dat ass into it.

      Yes, I would like to rip that tank top there…aalllll the way off.

      • Trent

        Now *that’s* side-boob I can appreciate…

        • Anna

          Yes, hot guy with PECS in a tank top is the only case I approve of.

    • Alicia

      His gym routine is working well for him.

      • Luca

        for us too

    • KinoEye

      Taylor Swift, THIS is how you leave a gym. Examine closely and take detailed notes. I know that’s what I’m doing…

      • International Model

        …but not too close. A six foot blond with teeth like a pony, mountains of muscles, and a willingness to shame people is the stuff of nightmares.

        • demidaemon

          Nightmare fuel!

    • Henry Maler

      At least he actually looks like he was at the gym unlike certain stars we know.

    • Raspberry2012

      I won’t ever wonder again if our Uncles love us. You clearly DO, and you show us how much every Sausage Friday!

      • Anna

        My eyes feel better now, albeit I’m shifting uncomfortably in my seat. Joe on a platter, I mean leaving the gym, is exactly the cure for the Selena-Tyra-Mrs. Kanye West-and all the rest of the tacky that ails us.

        • Thomas

          I love that you called her Mrs. Kanye West, especially since she’s just his mannequin now and has the personality of one lol

          • Anna

            She Who Must Not Be Named.

      • Gayer Than Thou

        Holy mother of Liza Minnelli. I would like a slice of that!

    • Karen Belgrad

      I take special pride in having been tweeting (with a BeMeOrDoMe hashtag) about his activities with Sofia for a while now :)

    • @Biting Panda

      Papa Bear, come to Momma!!

    • SewingSiren

      Is 359 an activewear brand? That he works for? Because that’s a lot of 359.

      • ConnieBV

        Strangely enough, nope. 359inc is his production company. I guess he made those shirts for the company?

        • MartyBellerMask

          And here I thought it was the name of the gym.

        • SewingSiren

          Thanks. That I never would have guessed.

    • SugarSnap108

      I am willing to follow the instructions on his shirt.

      • Raspberry2012

        It’s the only polite thing to do!

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      MMMM, snausage…
      He certainly seems to be advertising the heck out of this 359 stuff…

    • Dany


      Sorry, I just turned into my teenage, hormone filled self. I’ll be in my bunk now.

      • homofascist

        Seriously. That nipple slip in the first picture is getting it done for me this morning!

      • AnotherG

        I keep reading “Nip Here.” Over. And over. And over. And . . .

    • Jaeda Laurez

      “Rip Here???” Thanks, Joe- you’ve really gotten into the spirit of Sausage Friday. Much appreciated.

    • Thomas

      I’ll GLADLY rip there! *Drools all over self*

      • Raspberry2012

        I’ll rip there and further down, if he’ll allow it.

    • Glam Dixie

      From the side he looks enormous! This is not a complaint. Sings, “What a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man”.

    • KendraMR

      Now if only “Rip Here” was below his waist…

      • Kitten Mittons


    • JR Labrador

      I googled. “3:59″ is his production company. Something about breaking a 4 minute mile. Insert your 4 minutes with Joe jokes here.

    • Christi Wampler

      He’s hairless.

      I can’t.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Full beard, no chest hairs. I has a sad.

      I’d still hit it.

      • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

        Me too…hell, I’m practically speechless from all the drool, and I swear my hands were shaking as I’m typing this…cold shower here I come…Lordy, that’s a lot of testosterone I need to mess with.

      • Trent

        I always thought it was ridiculous on True Blood that he was so manscaped, given that he was a *werewolf*, but then I read an interview in which he said that he was naturally smooth all over. Not fully buying it, but whatever…still hot.

        • demidaemon

          Now we need to see proof that it is truly “all over.”

          • Trent

            Heh…I volunteer to check it out!

            • demidaemon

              You aren’t the only one! 😉

            • SRQkitten

              The line has formed!

        • Heather

          I dunno, it’s possible. The menfolk in my family have the ability for full beards and tons of hair on their heads – but none of them have much hair anywhere else. My brothers don’t even have underarm hair, seriously. They got a lot of guff for it in high school as you can imagine. My grandmother says it’s all her Native American blood – but mixing it with my Pap’s German genes gave the boys beards. Lol. Yay, genetics!

          • Sam Smith

            Yeah, my hubby can grow a full and thick beard, but is not particularly hairy in general. And, hubby actually bears a strong resemblance to Joe (in the face not the muscles), so yay for that.

    • hyperionic

      Mehhh it doesn’t take much smarts to show off your muscles and hook up with another b-lister.

      • Thomas

        I’m pretty sure that Sofia Vergara is an A-lister. She’s the highest paid female star on tv now, if I’m not mistaken.

        • Trent

          Wow — she makes more than the actors on The Big Bang Theory? Shocking, since that show has twice the audience and much higher ratings these days than Modern Family.

          • Thomas


    • ConnieBV

      VIERNES SALCHICHA, como no!

      • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

        Ay, niñ un salchichón! Venga acá, bonito..yo tengo algo muy especial para ese salchichón.

        Wouldn’t it be a shame if he were hung like a hamster?

        • formerlyAnon

          There are toys for that.

        • ConnieBV

          You know, at this point he would just have to sit there and be pretty. Solita festejo.

    • Vivi N

      I want that tee. I don’t know why but I do.

      • SRQkitten

        Vivi, you can have the tee, I’ll take what’s in the tee, thank you!

    • Catherine

      This’ll do for Sausage Friday.

    • WendyD

      ALL OF THIS.

    • Abbey Rogue

      That’s a lot of mannipple for 9am.

    • marlie

      *fans self*

      Also, I almost laughed out loud at work because Of Course.

    • alyce1213

      I think I’m alone here in that he does nothing for me. I see someone who spends to much time looking at himself in the mirror. I don’t find huge muscles attractive. And he just doesn’t look very bright. Meat.

      • boweryboy

        Nope. You’re not alone. I prefer lanky, dorky, bespectacled men – hairy and/or gingers a plus. Basically, I’m attracted to nerdy types.

        • Synnae

          My experience is that half the guys in my gym who work out seriously hard were lanky dorks to begin with (hell, I’ve seen some of them come in like that). It is actually really good, because they are geeks at heart and you can talk Star Trek in between lifts!

      • cocohall

        I saw a photo of him from his teen years and he was much closer to dork than jock. You have to wonder if this is just overcompensation for being picked on when he was a kid.

        • Glam Dixie

          My cousin’s husband did the same, was a tiny, short little skinny kid that took a bunch of crap in school and went into the gym as an adult and didn’t stop until he looked like Stone Cold Steve Austin. Literally. People ask him for pictures and autographs and everything even though he’s too short they still think it’s him.

        • formerlyAnon

          I’d be willing to say he probably realized along the way that there’s a lot more mileage to be gotten out of his current look in his profession.

          • cocohall

            Jim Parsons might argue otherwise, but in general, yes. Hollywood favors the fellow who can look like GI Joe. (And then lose 60 lbs to play sick or struggling and then return to hulk form in 3 months, tops. THhy do not appear to have it any easier than the women.)

      • formerlyAnon

        Oh, you know I’m in the lanky camp. But he’s admirable as a stunning specimen of what he is, I think. It’s a more artistic admiration on my part.

        • DB Ruberto

          THIS. Art for art’s sake…

          • alyce1213

            I might go along with the art comparison if he were a better example of it — cut and sculpted, like David Beckham for example. Joe looks overstuffed to me.

      • The Versatile Chef

        Preach it, sistah.

    • frannyprof

      St. Joe, I love thee.

    • RescueMe23

      Thank you. Thank you..

    • Danielle

      My weekly dose of Hot Italian Sausage! Thank you, uncles. You’re doing the Lord’s work, truly.

    • PinkyK

      Hey Wolfie, I’ll be your bitch!

    • Joanna B

      Well hand me a skillet and call me Jimmy Dean, it’s Sausage Friday!

    • girliecue

      Joe, LOVE your suggestive shirt and the body on which it is placed. But believe me, I don’t need any instructions on what to do with you…

    • Freynika

      I feel sorry for the guy who has to use the machine next to him at any given moment. How can you even compare? Funny thing is, he actually doesn’t do much for me, except in shots without his face. It’s all about the face for me, and I’ve never cared much for his.

    • formerlyAnon

      I can’t say I’ve ever pondered the pros and cons of peek-a-boo tank tops for men before this photo. I generally prefer men’s clothing to be there or not. But for some reason this one is striking me as genius. (Yes, I think we can conclude the reason is Mr. Manganiello.)

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      Oh yes. Thank you, gentlemen. This was just the inspiration I needed to write today!

    • evave2

      Are you guys saying this is part of HIS PR strategy? Because I gotta say THIS guy oozes realism. LOOK AT THOSE CALVES.

    • decormaven

      Barely a glimpse of the eyes, but it’s ok because those arms… Thank Goodness It’s Sausage Friday!

      • Anna

        TGISF! Merchandising opportunity!

        • decormaven

          I like the way you think.

          • Anna

            We were late to the “mom ripped jeans” party, but I think there’s a market for TGISF t-shirts. I will also never say TGIF anymore, why have a regular ol’ Friday when you can have a sausage one.

    • yayito83


    • colleenjanel

      Boy, got that out of the way early! I mean where can you go with Sausage Friday after this? Might as well just call it a day!

      • formerlyAnon

        Hush, you!

        (S/He/Higher Power of Choice has created Man in infinite variety for a reason. It possibly has more to do with a healthy gene pool than TLo’s Sausage Friday, but might as well take advantage.)

    • Kristi Mitchell

      Put me down for a Definitely DO HIM. in a heartbeat.

    • Coco Cornejo

      Side pec. Is that a thing now?

    • greymain


    • Mothra

      Oh yes. I am pretty sure there is something in THAT bag. Meow.

    • MilaXX

      lol Love his T-shirt

    • LibKat

      The man understands his audience. THIS is how you do a post-gym photo op, Tay-Tay.

    • Ashleigh

      ew. where’s the hair?? that’s TOO much man-scaping, honey!

    • Peeve

      God, I do love me some sausage Friday! Thanks, ‘Shameless Man-Whores’!

    • majorbedhead

      This is the antidote to the really shitty day I’m having. Thank you, uncles.

    • shopgirl716

      Call me old school but I have a hard time with men who wax a larger percentage of their body surface than I do. It’s just not right.

      • Thomas

        I don’t think it’s wrong or right. It’s just a matter of preference. Bodybuilders usually wax to because the muscle definition shows better when waxed.

        • shopgirl716

          Yeah, bodybuilders freak me out too. Way too much time in front of the mirror.

    • jjfg

      Came here to look for the PR recap, got side tracked by this little feature. Project what?

    • Synnae

      He may be man-whoring himself to high heaven – while still managing to miss my bed- but he is also working out properly before his photo-ops. Looking like that takes discipline and work, a lot of hard work.

    • NWMothra

      Too busy at work and just now seeing this. My day would have been a whole lot better had I opened TLo first! It’s not Friday without some Joe. Thank you.

    • lundibleu

      I don’t like these vests – either wear a proper one or nothing at all.

    • Jeremy

      He really is man-whoring himself out as a product. 3:59 is his film production company.
      I’d still take that product anytime.

    • kerryev

      Speaking of ‘Be Me or Do Me’-style try hards, has anyone else seen Katherine Heigl’s new magazine cover? Short sleeved sweater, cup of coffee, smiling straight at the camera in what looks to be a real live kitchen. Copy is something like ‘Motherhood changed me!’ I have no problem with her but that level of b.s. is pretty brazen.

      • demidaemon

        Oh, yes, I’ve spotted it in the grocery line multiple times over the past month. I had to control my instinct to gag at it. Also, Good Housekeeping is a step down, no?

    • Man Dala

      I bought the book and read it twice.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Rip here-Yes, I will. Thanks, uncles!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      The next step for TLo-TED talks for the celeb who wants to up his or her game

    • Lilyana_F

      Aw, daaaamn, I’m not usually into muscles at all, but I find these photos very aesthetically pleasing…

    • YoungSally

      RIP here as in tear or R.I.P. here – either one is fine by me.

    • Esz

      He really seems to be skipping his leg days tho…..

    • irielle

      Now that’s the way to dress for the gym.

    • Louise Bryan

      Pure self-indulgence, T-Lo. Fess up.
