WHOA!

And we thought Alcide's relationship with Sookie heading into True Blood Season 7 was a shocker.

Joe Manganiello showed up at this week's Style Awards in New York City sporting a very different look than usual. He was wearing a shirt! Oh, and he also shaved. Big time. Full time. Entirely.

Yes, the hairy actor behind HBO's hottest werewolf now has short hair and nary a beard or mustache. It's a radical change, but is it an improved one? Compare. Contrast. And vote now:

Well, it was a fun rumor while it (barely) lasted.

But following reports that claimed Demi Moore was dating True Blood hunk Joe Manganiello, a reliable source has now come out and shot that chatter down: True Blood hunk Joe Manganiello.

"There is 100 percent zero truth to that," Manganiello told Ryan Seacrest yesterday on the host's 102.7 KIIS FM radio show. "I met her once at a premiere and I maybe talked to her for three minutes."

And what did the stars discuss during that meeting? Getting naked, of course, as Manganiello stars in the upcoming Magic Mike.

"She was in Striptease, so I was like, 'Hey, you played a stripper! I'm playing a stripper,'" he told Seacrest, adding, "And we kind of had a three-minute conversation about exchanging stripping notes, and that was it."

So there was talk of getting naked? Sounds like there's a chance for these two after all!

Might we have a case of true love for a True Blood star? Or perhaps just true lust...

According to Heat Magazine sources, Joe Manganiello got along quite well with Demi Moore at a recent party in Los Angeles celebrating the premiere of That's My Boy.

"They looked amazing together," the insider said of Ashton's ex and the Magic Mike actor. "Demi was getting a lot more attention than a lot of the younger girls in the room, and Joe was seen waiting for her before they went off and hung out together at the party. They had amazing chemistry."

Joe and Demi met after the latter signed on for Magic Mike and have reportedly kept in touch, even after the actress pulled out of the film in which Manganiello stars as a stripper named Big Dick.

This publication insider claims the hunk is responsible for getting Moore back on track after a rough few months.

"Demi has finally got her groove back - and it's all thanks to meeting Joe. She's feeling confident again and, more importantly, sexy."

True, sex appeal is FAR more important than confidence in one's self.

There are many reasons to watch True Blood: Action, gore, suspense and sex being foremost among them.

But the latest issue of GQ gives fans of this HBO hit another reason to tune in when the series returns on June 26. Here it is:

That's Joe Manganiello, who plays the werewolf Alcide and who has been made a series regular.

How did he get so ripped? Easy, the actor says: the script called for it.

"If Alcide was described as weighing 300 pounds with a comb-over and missing his front teeth, that's what I would look like," Manganiello tells the magazine.

True Blood star Joe Manganiello and Audra Marie, his actress/model girlfriend, are now engaged! Congratulations to the happy couple, and sorry ladies!

On vacation in Italy, the hunk popped the question to Audra Marie, who he met at a 2009 Super Bowl party, and didn't hit it off with right away.

"She wouldn't go out with me for six months," Manganiello recalled to People. "We started dating a few months before I got cast [on True Blood]."

TRUE BLOOD, TRUE LOVE: Joe Manganiello now has both!

Manganiello says Marie is "a great dresser. She's gorgeous, and she's tall. And she's sweet ... nice. And she makes crazy English breakfasts."

Marie says her man's most appealing qualities are his "sense of humor, his work ethic and how humble he is with everything that has gone on."

Sounds like a relationship that doesn't suck! Eh, eh?

Anna Paquin has come out as a bisexual.

While this news caused somewhat of a stir for fans of True Blood, most viewers are far more concerned about questions surrounding season three of the show, namely: What will happen to Bill and Sookie?

When we last left this couple, the former had proposed to the latter... only to be kidnapped at the conclusion of season two. As soon as the show premieres this summer on HBO, Sookie will be looking for her man - but she won't be alone.

Joe Manganiello has signed on as Alcide, a werewolf that will bond with Paquin's character as they search for Bill. Get your first look at the actor in this role below:

“There is definitely some [sexual] energy between the two of them,” producer Alan Ball told EW.com “It’s not like either one of them is looking for romance, but they’re thrown into several intense situations [and] it’s hard not to bond on a deeper level."

The show premieres on June 12. For more True Blood spoilers, visit our pals at TVFanatic.com.
