Joe Manganiello is one of the hunkiest guys in Hollywood.
"We had a photoshoot for the movie [Ten] poster. I was wearing a sleeveless top, crossing my arms and flexing," he recalls. "Arnold came in and said, ‘I see you're flexing your biceps. Don't do that. Keep it loose and [with crossed arms] put the other hand back to push [the muscle forward]—you'll get an extra three inches.'"
An extra three inches is always something to be thankful for, but that wasn't the only perk that came from working with the Terminator. "Arnie was a hero to me. He's the reason why every guy of our generation started going to the gym," Manganiello explains. "To film with him for four months was awesome. And he still trains every morning."
And while the True Blood babe's main focus used to be "getting more ripped," he now "[wants] to be a great athlete. It's about becoming stronger, fitter and faster."
Yum! Manganiello's full interview appears in the July issue of Men's Health U.K., on sale Monday, June 3.
