Has Joe Manganiello Gotten Too Beefy?

My relationship with Joe Manganiello goes way back. It started when he appeared in a bit part on “How I Met Your Mother.” Wow, that guy is hot, I thought. A few years later, the same gorgeous face appeared as a heartbroken werewolf on “True Blood” with a prediliction for taking his shirt off. I swooned. Joe has yet to make an appearance in the two episodes of “TB” season four that have aired so far, which is highly disappointing. So today, when I caught a glimpse Joe’s cover of Muscle & Fitness magazine, it was the first time we’d come face to face in months. And I freaked. That perfect, perfect specimen has gotten—gulp—way too muscle-bound for my taste. Put down the weights, Joe, put down the weights.

Luckily, this photo makes me think the situation isn’t so bad. Perhaps Joe’s muscles on the cover got a little boost from Photoshop?

In the article, Joe talks about his body’s transformation. “I’m 220 lbs., on the nose. Funny thing is, everyone keeps saying, ‘How much weight did you lose? You look so much thinner!’ But all my measurements have gone up. My waist is two inches smaller, but my shoulders, arms, and chest have all gone up.” Yeah, we noticed.

He also told a funny anecdote. “I had a friend of mine call me and tell me that it was a girl’s birthday in his office, and they got her a cake with my picture on it,” he said. “A year ago I wasn’t on anybody’s cake. It makes me feel really good, and it makes me want to work even harder from a fitness standpoint.” I don’t know, Joe. Don’t overdo it. Nothing is less attractive than a man who is too obsessed with his body.

What do you think of Joe’s new physique?
