Joe Manganiello talks about the 'biggest adjustment' he made in his marriage to Sofia Vergara
Joe Manganiello gushes about his marriage to Sofia Vergara and says after all these years he is still trying to deal with the biggest adjustment
Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara have been married for two years and even after all these years, he is still trying to wrap his head around the fact that he married his celebrity crush. Joe, who wed Sofia in November 2015, gushes about his wife and opens up about their relationship in the April issue of Cigar Aficionado magazine.
Joe admitted that he found it difficult to believe that someone could ever love him like Sofia does. “The biggest adjustment in marriage? Coming to grips with the idea that someone who is not related to you could possibly love you that much. She was it for me,” the actor revealed. Like others who may believe that marriage is all about sacrifice and hard work, Joe seems to think otherwise.
“People say things like, ‘Marriage and relationships are work.’ But it’s not. Life is hard. Having somebody to help you deal with it is the greatest thing that ever happened,” he admitted. However, the actor believes that one can learn a lot from their past and he sure did learn a thing or two from his previous relationships.
“Looking back on the relationships I had before this, I think the universe was giving me some tough practice so I’d get this right,” he said. Joe always spoke about how much he admired Sofia even before they started dating. The couple was first introduced by their mutual friend Tyler Ferguson.
Joe and Tyler had always been very close and when he found out that Sofia was single after her split from ex-fiancé Nick Loeb in May 2014, he did not want to let go of an opportunity where he could get to take Sofia out on a date. It is then that he requested Tyler to give him Sofia's number and after six months of dating, Joe asked her to marry him on Christmas Day 2014.
Currently, the duo is eagerly waiting for the release of their first film together. “I read the script and knew it was a great role for me — then it was a five-year struggle of getting it made. It’s a story about redemption and putting your life back together,” he said.
