joe manganiello arnold schwarzenegger muscle and fitness 'True Blood's' Joe Manganiello shows Arnold Schwarzenegger his muscles

“True Blood” star Joe Manganiello has been loved for his muscles since he was introduced to fans as Alcide Herveaux in Season 3. Now Arnold Schwarzenegger has been introduced to Manganiello’s impressive body as well.

Muscle & Fitness magazine placed Manganiello on its January 2014 cover, and threw a party to honor the big issue. Manganiello has also been busy promoting his new book, “Evolution: The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You’ve Always Wanted,” which is content a former body builder like Schwarzenegger knows something about.

At the party, Schwarzenegger and Manganiello posed together in front of a picture of the cover, which sees the “True Blood’s” star’s muscles practically popping off the page. “The Universe somehow avoided implosion when we got these two in a room together at our party in LA last night!” the magazine tweets.

By now, Schwarzenegger is actually likely used to seeing Manganiello’s muscles. The two are starring together in the new action flick “Sabotage,” which is due in theaters on April 11, 2014.
