Joe Manganiello reveals his past drinking problem

By Ashleigh Nicole,

We all love the sexy werewolf Alcide from the HBO show True Blood. Now, actor Joe Manganiello is a soon-to-be published author as well. In his new book, he writes about some of the more undesirable years of his life.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Manganiello spoke about his past drinking problem in some detail and to discuss his new book, Evolution: The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You've Always Wanted. He ended up divulging much more.

"There was a period of about four years where I needed to quit drinking, the actor said, reports E! News. "And the drinking always got in the way."

After 11 years, the successful actor is telling the world all about it in his book, which is to be released Dec. 13.

The 36-year-old, 6-foot-5 beef-cake actor didn't always have the charmed life he seems to lead today. In the Huffington Post interview, he spoke about his early struggles, his battle with alcohol, and the hard work it took to get him where he is today — revealing a whole new side to the otherwise mysterious actor.
