Joe Manganiello has ALWAYS been a hottie, but he wasn't always a loaded star!!
Actually, even after Joe played Flash in 2002's Spider-Man and landed a recurring role as True Blood's seXXXiest werewolf, he was still having so much trouble paying his bills that he got kicked out of the place he called home!
"About six months after the shoot ended, I got thrown out of my apartment for not paying rent. Lost my car. Lost all my clothes. Furniture. The sheriff gave me 5 minutes to collect my things in a duffle bag and leave the apartment. All the money I was paid as a guest star that year — which was not a lot, after I'd paid out my expenses — I spent on training. I netted zero. I lived off my savings, hoping my car didn't break down. I just put everything into seeing what I could actually do. I think that was the shift."
Could you imagine our poor beefy babe on the streets??
Thank goodness he had those guns to protect himself! We wouldn't have wanted any muggers to compromise that perfect bone structure.
Guess hard work, determination, and rock hard abs really CAN beat all the odds!
