That was fast: PEOPLE’s Hottest Bachelor may already be off the market.
Joe Manganiello is spending time with Sofia Vergara, a source confirms to PEOPLE, creating what could be the sexiest couple in Hollywood, new as the relationship may be.
«They just started to hang out,» the source says. Reps for both actors had no comment.
The news comes just after Manganiello, 37, raved about the Colombian bombshell in an interview with PEOPLE for the Hottest Bachelors issue.
«You’re gonna get me in trouble. I don’t want to be like a home-wrecker. This person is engaged,» he said of Vergara, who split from fiancé Nick Loeb in May. «She’s got the curves, she’s got a beautiful face, beautiful hair, just gorgeous. Naturally beautiful. She’s feisty!»
The True Blood hunk (whose character Alcide had a shocking scene in Sunday’s episode) and the Modern Family star first met in May at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
For Manganiello, dating his celebrity crush is a dream come true.
«There was a picture someone snapped at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner where they caught me looking at Sofia Vergara’s butt,» he told PEOPLE during the Hottest Bachelor interview. «When you talk about being manipulated, that’s what I’m talking about. It’s like a moment of zen. There is nothing in my brain. If only I could meditate that well. I don’t go after other people’s women. She’s got a guy. If she was single, I would be like, poof!»
Looks like he went «poof,» all right!
