Oh, No! True Blood Stud Joe Manganiello Cutting Back on Gym Time

If there truly is a God, he will take care of Joe Manganiello's smokin' body while he's in Europe next month.

True Blood's hot as friggin' heck werewolf tells me he'll be crossing the Atlantic for some vacation time, but warns…

"I'm going to eat myself through Greece and Italy," he said at the Entertainment Weekly and Women in Film pre-Emmy party at the Sunset Marquis hotel. "I've never been to Europe so I'm going to eat and have fun."

But what about that fine physique we've all come to worship appreciate. "I'll workout a bit because I like to—just not as hard as I do normally," he said.

Manganiello starts filming the next season of the hit HBO vampire series in November. Maintaining his body isn't actually in his contract. "It's not in there, but it is the character," he said. "He's described in the book as being built as a shithouse basically. I have a lot to live up to with what Charlaine Harris wrote."

We know we'll be seeing Joe at some point during today's Emmys festivities, so make sure you're following @marcmalkin and @brettmalec on Twitter.
