Joe Manganiello is one hot guy and his fiancee Sofia Vergara is one lucky lady!
The Magic Mike XXL star recently revealed that he has been sober for twelve years, while attending the documentary presentation of The Resurrection of Jake The Snake in Los Angeles on Sunday.
The 38-year-old former True Blood star is not only celebrating his years of sobriety, but also looking forward to his wedding to Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara in the fall.
Joe was the celebrity moderator for a panel discussion about the Steve Yu-directed documentary The Resurrection of Jake The Snake, a story about professional wrestling legend Jake Roberts who struggled with drug addiction, depression, and money woes after his retirement.
The Evolution author felt he was the appropriate speaker to shed light on experiences relating to the film’s theme about the difficulties staying on the straight and narrow of sobriety.
Manganiello said, “Of course sobriety is something near and dear to me. Twelve-and-a-half years sober. So obviously this is something very close to my heart.”
He adds, “There was a period of four years where I needed to quit drinking. It was one of those obstacles I needed to get over. Once again, I needed to clear the road in order for these things to happen.”
Manganiello popped the question to Sofia Vergara on Christmas Day, after dating for six months.
Joe is actually ready to tie the knot to Sofia as soon as possible, but the wedding has had to be delayed due to their work commitments.
Sofia spoke to Access Hollywood at the SAG Awards in January, saying of the wedding, “It’s going to be big. We started off with 20 [on the guest list] , and now there’s like pages and pages.”
Vergara adds, “We want to get married at a time when we can get away and make time for a honeymoon. So the wedding will probably be later this year. I’m promoting my movie [Hot Pursuit] with Reese Witherspoon, so we’re kind of busy so we’re trying to do it maybe [this] fall. This summer is too busy”.
