Joe Manganiello Is Unrecognizable With Dramatic New Look

Joe Manganiello is one of the undisputedly hottest men in the world, famous for his attention-grabbing roles in Magic Mike (and that gas station routine), True Blood, One Tree Hilland plenty more besides. In November 2015, Manganiello married fellow beautiful person Sofia Vergara in a lavish ceremony befitting their shared natural glamour (via PopSugar). Manganiello proposed to the Modern Family bombshell after just six months of dating, as reported by People at the time. Hilariously, right before he settled down with Vergara, Manganiello was named People's "Hottest Bachelor."


The couple clearly has a deep connection, taking every opportunity to publicly share their adoration for each other. As Manganiello told Men's Health, "My life is great because I really like my wife. I like talking to her. I like goofing around with her. We f*****g laugh all day long every day. My favorite thing in the world is making my wife laugh so much she cries. It's the best." Although they're one of the most recognizable Hollywood pairings, a recent change to Manganiello's classic look has fans doing a double take. 

Joe Manganiello proves blonds have more fun

Manganiello accompanied Vergara to a mini Modern Family reunion in celebration of her former co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson's 45th birthday (Ferguson actually introduced the couple, too, per Closer Weekly). As documented on Instagram, the happy couple posed alongside the birthday boy, Sarah Hyland, and Julie Bowen. What was immediately noticeable about the shot, apart from the fact that all parties were acting responsibly by donning masks for the occasion, was Manganiello, who cradled a small dog bundled up like a baby and was also rocking a shock of bleached blonde hair.


In a second pic, we were gifted a closer look at the action star's wild new look as he snuggled up with the doggo, looking lovingly at it. Alongside his usual rugged beard, Manganiello is rocking a punk-rock mohawk, which is so far removed from his typical tall, dark, and handsome look. Vergara didn't draw attention to the change in her caption, when sharing the photo, simply thanking Ferguson for "our first Modern Fam reunion." The comedic actress told People previously that the sexiest thing about her hubby is his intellect, pointing out how rare it is to find someone who's handsome and intelligent.
