Bare_a

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.

Details_bomer

For those who may have been fantasizing about a perfect gay marriage to Magic Mike and The Normal Heart's Matt Bomer will have to make room in their honeymoon suite for three. It turns out that not only is Bomer married to his partner Simon Halls, but that they wed three years go, a full year before he came out publicly in 2012 when he accepted an award from the Desert AIDS Project in Palm Springs. 

His interest in The Normal Heart was spurred by the work of Larry Kramer and people like him, and Bomer acknowledges that the many rights he has today, including marriage, are ones that he would not have otherwise.

In a behind-the-scenes videofrom his Details shoot, Beomer talks about working with Mark Ruffalo, reactions to rumors that he might have been cast in 50 Shades of Grey, whether he'll be doing a Mgic Mike sequel and what the hardest part was of shooting that film, going to the gym, his favorite designers, L.A. vs. N.Y., and his formal style tips.

Joe 1

With the anticipated return of True Blood right around the corner on June 16th, actor Joe Manganiello is thankfully taking full advantage of the renewed spotlight. The 6-foot-5 actor beefs up the cover of the July issue of Men's Health UK, where his detailed fitness routine is discussed along with an accompanying photo spread of Manganiello demonstrating his peak physical prowess.

"I'm not 18 anymore. But you won't hear me saying that, because me at 36 would destroy me as a teenager," the actor boasts. "In my mid-thirties I'm making bigger gains than I've ever made in my life."

Movies: "Magic Mike"... More Than We Dreamed He Could Be

"You are the husband they never had. You are that dreamboat guy that never came along."

YOUR FEATURE PRESENTATION

An exhilarating all night double date is winding down on a bridge in Tampa, just before the sun rises. MAGIC MIKE (Channing Tatum) stands up on the railing, looks over his shoulder and dives gracefully backwards into the water to the mild delight of the anonymous girls. His new protégé "The Kid" (Alex Pettyfer), already eager to follow in his new buddy's footsteps (and body rolls), jumps in awkwardly after him.

"Hey Mike, I think we should be best friends!" 

The Kid blurts the invitation out with both of them bobbing in the water. He's like a little boy who's just discovered a whole new playground. It's a perfectly crush-worthy unguarded moment -- the kind that makes you give yourself over completely to a movie. My heart is yours, movie. Treat me right. 

This gem of a scene is also, as it turns out, the exclamation point to a perfectly formed Act One, "June". The movie takes place over the course of one life-changing summer for Mike and The Kid: June, July, and August. You go to Magic Mike to see seven spectacularly formed male bodies but the movie turns out to be all sculpted, too: June is introductions, flirtations and promise, by July you're deep in love/lust and too hot for clothing, and in August... Well, you know how sticky August gets.
