Joe Manganiello: Women's clothes are hard

Joe Manganiello has a newfound "respect" for women and what they wear after donning a thong for his upcoming movie.

The hunk plays Davis in What to Expect When You're Expecting - a father who incites jealously in all his fellow parents because of his impressive physique.

Joe walked the red carpet this week with his co-star Anna Kendrick. The actress was wearing skyscraper heels and Joe told of his awe for her.

"I respect women for what they have to wear, in general. I mean, the high heels? I had to wear a thong in a movie this year. [So] yeah, I have a lot of respect," he quipped, referencing his role in upcoming stripper movie Magic Mike.

In What to Expect When You're Expecting, one particular scene sees Joe doing chin-ups. Despite appearing carefree and topless throughout the movie, the actor insists showing off his honed abs wasn't always a walk in the park.

"It was over 100 [degrees] during those days that I had to do all of the chin-ups," he told Access Hollywood. "I had to do about 900 chin-ups a day, and it was about 100 degrees."

The film features 31 different babies. Joe is glad he avoided the more unenviable tasks on set.

"I didn't have to change any diapers but I'm sure somebody did," he laughed.
