Sofia Vergara on Dating Joe Manganiello: ‘He Seemed Like a Lot of Work’

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are one of Hollywood’s hottest couples, but the actress wasn’t keen on going out with him at first. 

The 42-year-old has revealed in an episode of Ellen (airing Monday, May 4) that it took the Magic Mike XXL actor a plane ride to New Orleans to get her to agree to go on a date with him.

He seemed like a lot of work because so handsome and younger than me and like so sexy and whatever best bachelor or whatever he was. And I’m like ugh. Just too much! But he convinced me.

The couple — who got engaged in December — have also officially moved in together. The Hot Pursuit star opens about their move, which was actually happening the day of her interview with Ellen.

We’re moving today to a house, actually! We’re doing the move, and it’s been crazy, but I wanted to come, ya know, and see you… I left him unpacking my things.

To congratulate her on her engagement, Ellen Degeneres presented Vergara with a cake, in which a shirtless male stripper jumped out of and was joined by two more male strippers. (Just watch).
