“That’s right, Skarsgard. And I can do this…”
True Blood star Joe Manganiello is a single man now after calling off his engagement to girlfriend Audra Marie which I’m going to take a shot in the dark and say has nothing to do with the fact that he stars in no less than 8,000 rape fantasies. Probably not a factor. Us Magazine reports:
After about a year and a half of dating, the hunky star, 34, and the model-actress announced their engagement in October 2010; he popped the question during a vacation in Italy.
At the time, Manganiello gushed to E! News of his love: “I always dreamed of finding someone who is beautiful and sweet, equal parts. And I did. From there she’s just unbelievably understanding and compassionate and patient from all the craziness that comes from this job and lifestyle.”
But by spring 2011, a source close to the actor noted he “refused” to set a wedding date. “He [went] completely quiet about discussing wedding details,” the source said.
As his then bride-to-be forged ahead with choosing her wedding dress, her bridal party and even her gift registry, “He [was] clearly having reservations.”
Except here’s the cringe part, ladies. Apparently Joe was spotted with Rose McGowan on Monday, but hey, maybe it’s just a have one-time sex with a chick who’s probably really self-conscious about her face and therefore overcompensates type thing. He strikes me as an old romantic.
