Joe Manganiello Says He Is NOT Dating Demi Moore [AUDIO]
Sexy “True Blood” star Joe Manganiello called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to talk about starring in upcoming flick “Magic Mike” as stripper “Ricardo Grande,” and busted rumors he’s dating Demi Moore.
Is There Any Truth To The Rumor That You’re Dating Demi Moore?
“There is 100 percent zero truth to that. I met her once at a premiere and I maybe talked to her for three minutes. Lovely woman. You know we actually exchanged…you know she was in ‘Striptease,’ so I was like, ‘Hey, you played a stripper, I’m playing a stripper,’ and you know we kind of had a three-minute conversation about exchanging stripping notes and that was it. Lovely woman, but geez. They will print anything! Once it’s on the internet there’s no fact checking, and everybody just prints off everyone else’s articles!”
How’s “True Blood” Going?
“‘True Blood”s awesome! Getting ready to finish up the finale here and this season’s pretty exciting. We definitely bring the sexy back this year on ‘True Blood’.
Will Alcide Finally Hook Up With Sookie In ‘True Blood?’
“I will say that I got to use some of new-found ‘Magic Mike’ movies this season on ‘True Blood.'”
On Matthew McConaughey Stipping & Wedding
“I had preconceived notions about it. I think I thought, ‘Wow, that’s really weird,’ but once you get in front of 200 screaming women. I mean, they ripped McConaughey’s thong off at one point, the girls.” Did Matt mind the pawing? “They signed off paperwork that said basically, ‘the animals in the zoo will bite,’ you know, and you’re ok with that, and then they were handed stacks of dollar bills and were told, ‘go for it,” but I don’t really think they needed much encouragement, I mean they were wild.” Did Matt ever wear a shirt? “At times I think he’s wearing a leather vest, and at one point he’s wearing a yellow spandex halter top.” Did Joe go to Matt’s wedding? “No, I didn’t go to his wedding.”
On Being A Stripper In Upcoming “Magic Mike”:
“It’s really funny. It’s funny almost in like a 80s pro-wrestler kind of way. How can any of us take ourselves seriously with American flag thongs on and fireman suits? It’s really kind of wish fulfillment I would think for a lot of guys out there.”
How Can Guys Go & Buy Tickets To This Movie?
“I’ll give you a parallel. Any guy, any straight guy out there who’s gone and like hung out in the back row of a yoga class… See “Magic Mike” and it’s gonna be fish in a barrel. I think we’re gonna do alright.”
