True Blood star Joe Manganiello is doing his country of origin a major service in the most recent issue of Vanity Fair Italia: He's gracing them with his surreally sculpted abs.
After being listed as one of People's (and ours) Sexiest Men Alive, Joe is making sure to convince the rest of the world he is just as sexy. So he's dishing to the international mag about...
Well, who really cares since it is in Italian and there is no language barrier with pics this hot!
Looks like there is one thing Americans and Italians can agree on: Joe's an Italian stallion we wouldn't mind riding off into the night with!
As such, we couldn't help but take a peak at some scans, leaked on one of Joe's fan sites, from the outdoor photo shoot.
There are some über-seductive shots of the TV werewolf just rollin' around in the grass and dirt like any other sexy mystical creature (taking pointers from Robert Pattinson, are we?)
From the looks of these pictures, the photographer had the lycanthrope climbing some trees and becoming one with nature—what with those shots of him resting on logs and hanging from branches like his onscreen wild animal alter ego.
When the TV star wasn't getting down and dirty during the shoot, we think the genius cameraman must have been doing his best to at least semihide those clutch abs Joe holds so dear to claiming even more fame and some more money in the bank.
We're so sure the hunk put up a fight about the minimal wardrobe requirement since he is way more the clothing optional type when it comes to that chiseled chest of his. But damn, we can't blame him.
It is just too bad Joe's working that no-shave November look forever! We get it. It makes him look all the more wolf-esque, but it's time to take a cue from your sexy clean-shaven cast mate Ryan Kwanten. Pick up a razor.
But if the Italians will look past the stubble, I guess we can too. Plus, gelato galore could not amount to how excited we are to see what happens to Joe's character during True Blood's fourth season!
