Actor discusses hit show, first directing effort

 

It’s been a long road for Joe Manganiello.

The “Magic Mike” hunk, who’s engaged to Sofia Vergara, says he’s been sober for 12 years.

“Of course sobriety is something near and dear to me,” the 38-year-old actor told Us Weekly at the screening of “The Resurrection of Jack the Snake,” a documentary about the former wrestler and his own issues with sobriety.

“Twelve-and-a-half years sober,” Manganiello added. “So obviously this is something very close to my heart.”

Manganiello, who was once homeless and struggling, opened up about his fight to stay sober in the past.
