Joe Manganiello thrilled about being picked for People’s sexiest men

Joe Manganiello has two special ladies in his life that he wanted to tell when he found out that he was being added to People’s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive club, his mother and his fiance.

“I told Audra and the first thing she said was, ‘Don’t forget, I wash your underwear,’” Joe laughed while recounting to how he broke the news to his fiancée, model and actress Audra Marie. “Then she gave me a big hug and told me how proud of me she was.”

Also pleased with the honor? Joe’s mother!

“I said, ‘Go get People magazine this week.‘” Joe said of how he broke the news to Mama Manganiello, back in his hometown of Pittsburgh. “She said ‘What for?’ And I said, ‘Well, you know, it’s the Sexiest Man Alive issue.’ And she screamed ‘Oh my God! You’re the Sexiest Man Alive?!’ And I went ‘No, no… I’m one of the guys.’”

People, which separated their “Sexiest Men” into different categories, picked Joe’s steamy photo – showing the star, dripping wet in a clingy T-shirt to lead the pack of their “Supernaturally Spectacular” chosen hunks, ahead of “Twilight Saga” star Alex Meraz and “Vampire Diaries’” chiseled-jaw hero Paul Wesley and his blue-eyed scene stealing co-star, Ian Somerhalder.

Joe admitted that he was honored by the magazine’s nod, another accolade in his blossoming career, which took off big time after he joined the cast of “True Blood” during the show’s third season.
