Joe Manganiello’s psychic crush
Joe Manganiello had a celebrity crush on Sofia Vergara before they started dating.
The Magic Mike hunk had been asked who he would choose as his celebrity girlfriend in a magazine interview with People magazine back in June.
And after choosing Modern Family star Sofia as his answer, Joe later started a relationship with the Colombian beauty.
Speaking about the coincidence during a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, Joe joked that his choice had obviously worked in his favour.
"I had forgotten I had said that," Joe said during his chat On Air With Ryan Seacrest. "And when the magazine came out, by that time, we were seeing each other and when I got the magazine and opened it up and read it, I forgot I said that. I started laughing."
But Sofia was understandably flattered by Joe’s attention, with the actor adding: “She was laughing at me. She thought that I was crazy for having said that out loud or said it in the magazine, but you know, I guess it worked.”
Sofia recently opened up about her relationship with Joe, appearing almost giddy about their romance.
“I’m very happy romantically,” Sofia told People magazine. “It couldn’t be better!”
The stunning brunette also said while the relationship is still in the early stages, she has high hopes for the future with Joe.
However, the 42-year-old actress added she is trying her best not to jinx their love affair.
“You know I'm just having a great time and it's a special time in my life and I'm trying not to think too much about it. It’s something very new so we will see what happens,” she told US television show Extra.
