Joe Manganiello Directs 'La Bare' Male Stripper Documentary - VIDEO


Capitalizing off of his role in the successful male stripper film Magic Mike, True Blood man-wolf Joe Manganiello has directed a male stripper documentary called La Bare which follows the performers and fans of the ladies’ strip club La Bare in Dallas, Texas.

Manganiello told Vulture:

“Soon after filming, there were the bands that had pulled their songs from the film despite the protests of their record label, the ban of our art/posters on bus stops and billboards due to it being too risqué ... And then came the wait for the MPAA rating ... And with that, the realization that I indeed had found something new, something fresh, something shocking to show the general public.”

“With Magic Mike, we scratched the surface, and with La Bare, I had the opportunity to plumb the depths of this strange and provocative world hidden in plain sight. Shocking, hilarious, and heartfelt, the film explores every level of the profession in three vivid dimensions."

Plus, it’ll help tide you over until the Magic Mike sequel and musical stage adaptation.

  2. Joe Manganiello seems quite fascinated with the male body, including his own. Did she say that "men were like microwaves and women were like crock pots--or ovens?" Get out the Easy-Off. Boo hoo for the straight strippers.

  9. @Rob,

    Who knows with the MPAA. They don't like male nudity or even the hint of it.

  10. I've never really been a fan of the stripper look--big muscles, hairless bodies but 80s hair band hair on the head... Not my favorite look

  11. You silly bitchy FAT queens..less time making remarks about someone who chooses to do more than sit behind a computer...FYI I am FIT!

  12. The commentators protest too much that they find these guys unattractive. It is basic human nature to be attracted to physically fit individuals - I believe a number of studies have found this to be true. To disregard the level of commitment and energy as well as aesthetic choices these guys have made probably comes from envy.

  13. This nothing if not tonic. These guys are healthy for sure, and seem to be nice as can be as well. Plus they show off just the kind of male bulge that people love, or should, and all need to get entirely used to. Male strippers are good for everyone.
