The empirical evidence is in: Joe Manganiello is a hunky beefcake of man-loaf. You can't argue with science.
We previously operated under the assumption that Joe had sprung forth from the womb in his current form — or at least some shadow of it. But, this is not the case. Joe Manganiello was once an awkward, gawky kid with glasses. Conan O'Brien showed the photographic proof on last night's show.
