Joe Manganiello shows off his sweaty guns as he exits the gym: would you hit it?

Here are some photos of Joe Manganiello leaving the gym yesterday in LA. On one side, I feel his pain. I would hate to be photographed coming out of the gym, mostly because I don’t shower at the gym – my house is like a five minute drive away, and I prefer to shower at home. So I leave the gym feeling sweaty, exhausted and DONE. Do not take my photo. That’s what Joe’s body language says to me. On the other hand, it’s Joe Manganiello and all he’s got (really) is his body. He wants you to see his guns. He wants you to want him. Accept the meathead for who he is.

I was genuinely surprised two weeks ago when I covered Joe’s Men’s Health photo shoot and so many of you were like “He’s hot!” I’m not judging! Different tastes, and all of that. I just thought he looked like a ‘roidy meathead and his back freaked me out a little, but I was in the minority. So, with that in mind, I thought you girls would enjoy these photos. As for his Men’s Health UK cover, Men’s Health released a behind-the-scenes video too:

I don’t get why so many men are working out with giant tires these days? You know who else does that? Ryan Lochte. I bet Ryan and Joe would get along really well.

    Oh my! Hell ya come to mamma!

  2. Thora says:

    The grey beard isn’t doing him any favours. It doesn’t really go with virile gym body he’s trying to rock.

  3. A says:

    I would hit that a million times. YUM!

    • Micki says:

      Yes, me too, provided he doesn’t talk.

      • telesma says:

        That was my first thought. As long as he doesn’t open his mouth. He’s pretty, but damn. “Better to be quiet and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt” certainly applies to him.

  4. epiphany says:

    He’s hot from the neck down – that body, wow. He’s strong, masculine – the face, though. He looks a bit – hawkish?
    His nostrils always look flared, like an animal trying to catch the scent of prey. That’s weird, I guess, but that’s what he looks like to me.

  5. Thora says:

    Wow. I just checked his age and he’s only 36. Seriously dude lose the grey beard. It makes you look like you’re in your 40s.

  6. Hautie says:

    I can recall many years ago… in my youth. That athlete’s/football players worked out, using tires. Big ugly HEAVY tires.

    I think it was for strength. And the ability to learn to handle weight that shifts easily, if not grabbed correctly.

    Like grabbing offensive linemen. You need to grab their big ass correctly, to throw them down. haha!

    Anywho. Yea, I like Joe.

    And since I have seen him handling that tire. I realize he has really strong hands. Oh, my!

    • Chickie Baby says:

      I’m in line right behind you, sister! Love the guns and the hands.

      And what’s all the griping about the gray in his beard? At least he HAS hair on his noggin, and it doesn’t look like he’s losing any….

  7. Lucy2 says:

    I don’t find him attractive, but he does have good hair. Hiding that and having the beard is not helping him here.
    I’ve also been rewatching some True Blood since it starts again soon, and his acting on that is pretty terrible. I haven’t seen him in anything else though, so maybe it’s just that show.

    • Trixie Belden says:

      Just saw him on a rerun of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ and he was hilarious. On purpose, not because he couldn’t act!

      I prefer big strong men, but he’d have to promise me not to get any more jacked up than he is now.

  8. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    Man, I’d love to be attracted to this guy, I’d even go as far as saying that I feel like I should be but something about that Men’s Health cover makes me feel like I’m in trouble, and not the good kind, I feel like he wants to come knock me out lol

  9. Katie says:

    No. He’s an idiot and he looks like a mouth breather.

    • V4Real says:

      I probably would too but only because he scares me and I would be afraid to say no. 🙂

  11. luffy says:

    i like him with out the grey beard and hes not puffy looking enough for steroids.

  12. Shannon1972 says:

    Nope. Does nothing for me at all. To each their own. 🙂

    • Dubois says:

      He does nothing for me either. He seems dense and lord have mercy when he talks.

  13. Maria_Spain says:

    2 words : hell yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaassssss!!


  14. sauvage says:

    Oh yes, I would. Hard. He’d barely be able to crawl into a taxi after I’m finished with him. ’nuff said.

    Actually, the guy has grown on me. I never cared about him too much, but his part in ‘Magic Mike’ kind of did it for me. It showed me that at least he has a sense of humour, which makes me like him.

  15. Jade says:

    He’s foul! Eeeekkk

  16. Kristine says:

    Yes. I would tap it hard.

  17. Rachel says:

    Kaiser, it’s not just men. Flipping tractor tires is the new big thing. I know a lot of women who do it.

  18. Mac says:

    Yes. Yesyesyesyesyes……

    That video just made my day.

    Thank you:)

  19. Toot says:

    He’s hot as Alcide, so yeah doable.

  20. Moana says:

    Oh yeah, he’s the hot. If he were attracted to old chunk-a-dunks, I’d gladly oblige.

  21. Nerd Alert says:

    Obviously ASkars twitter pic and Joe M getting papped at the gym is a way to promote the season premiere of TB without trying to appear too famewhorey. Although the Ellen Page pic was a lot more clever than the meaty werewolf after the gym.

    Oh, and I wouldn’t go after it to hit it, but I wouldn’t kick it out of bed, either 😉 AFTER HE SHOWERS.

  22. Shannon says:

    Omg yes!!! You’d have to peel me off of him!!! I’m in love with this stud. I love how big he is. Is every way. Tall and those muscles!! This is what a man should look like. I get giddy every time I see pics of him.

  23. Virgilia Coriolanus says:


    That’s all I see.

  24. fluffyrabbit says:

    Holy shit! RAWR!

  25. Anna says:

    I would totally hit it. But I’d turn off the lights and pretend he is Thor. I mean, Chris Hemsworth. I mean, Thor. I mean…

  26. MademoiselleRose says:

    Shit, yeah. I wish he’d lose the beard though. Beards are for ugly men who need to cover their faces IMO.
