Drool! True Blood hottie Joe Manganiello named Hottest Bachelor of 2014 by People magazine

2014-07-01 14:15
Los Angeles - Joe Manganiello has been named People's Hottest Bachelor.

The True Blood hunk triumphed over the likes of Jared Leto, Liam Hemsworth, Sam Smith and Britain's Prince Harry to take the publication's title, and in an accompanying interview he admitted he is ''at his best'' when not single.

He said: "I'm at my best when I have someone to wake up next to."

The 37-year-old actor credits his Italian background for his "passionate" nature.

He said: "I am part Sicilian. I am passionate. I am a hot-blooded person. If you don't like spicy, then maybe I'm not for you."

And the Magic Mike star believes it takes time to properly fall in love.

He explained: "I think the crazy love that you fall into in the beginning turns into 'like' and 'need.' Chris Rock told me that!

"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.'"

Joe also admitted he loves playing a werewolf on True Blood because he is so attracted to the smell of a woman.

He said: "I'm big into smell. 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."

We totally think he deserves this title, don't you agree?
