Back in November of last year, People magazine named Adam Levine as the Sexiest Man Alive. In April, they named Lupita Nyong’o as the Most Beautiful Person. Today we learn that the magazine famed for naming the sexiest and most beautiful has named actor/director Joe Manganiello as the Hottest Bachelor in Hollywood. Joe and his sick bod grace the cover of this week’s new issue of People devoted to all of the Hottest Bachelors in Hollywood. Click thru the gallery to see a few examples of why Joey Man has been deemed the Hottest Bachelor and then click below to read excerpts from People‘s interview with Joe in this week’s new issue.
Joe Manganiello knows what he’s looking for in a woman – he just hasn’t found her yet. “I am part Sicilian,” he tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “I am passionate. I am a hot-blooded person. If you don’t like spicy, then maybe I’m not for you.” The star, 37, who plays sexy werewolf Alcide on HBO’s True Blood and makes his directorial debut with the new documentary La Bare, opens up about everything from his first crush (Princess Leia!) to his perfect kiss (“like you’re off the planet”) to whether he believes in true love. “I think the crazy love that you fall into in the beginning turns into ‘like’ and ‘need.’ Chris Rock told me that!” says the Pittsburgh native, who is set to reprise his role as a stripper in the upcoming Magic Mike sequel. “He’s like, ‘Kid, you wanna get married? Listen, there’s love, and you can feel love the first night, but that’s not what it is. It’s, ‘I like you and I need you.’” No matter what, he says, “I’m at my best when I have someone to wake up next to.” As for his favorite part of a woman, “I’m big into smell,” he says. “It’s funny I got cast as a werewolf. There’s something about the smell on that part of a woman’s neck where it meets the jaw, ahhhh! It’s heaven.”
Whenever People names someone as the sexiest, most beautiful or hottest, there tends to be some disagreement. I don’t think anyone is taking any issue with Joe Manganiello being named the Hottest Bachelor. Lorde, he is actually the Hottest period. Well chosen, People. Very well chosen.
