Chris Evans and Joe Manganiello: The Battle of the Hollywood Hunks

It’s summer, and among other things, that means we’re going to be seeing a lot more half-nude celebrities frolicking on the beach.

GQ is ahead of the game. They’ve picked Captain America hottie Chris Evans for their cover and interviewed True Blood hunk Joe Manganiello in their upcoming July issue.

Justin Bieber is underage, and Ryan Phillippe is dating god knows who, so we’re ready for Summer’s new Hollywood crush. So who will it be—Evans or Manganiello? Evans has a romantic side to accompany those good looks, telling GQ:

“The point is that when I see a sunset or a waterfall or something, for a split second it’s so great, because for a little bit I’m out of my brain, and it’s got nothing to do with me. I’m not trying to figure it out, you know what I mean? And I wonder if I can somehow find a way to maintain that mind stillness.”

The way Evans feels about watching the sunset is, I’m sure, the same way the interviewer felt about watching him.

Manganiello, on the other hand, has another attractive quality—modesty. He says he doesn’t keep in shape out of vanity, but to stay true to the character:

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

He’s got a sense of humor, too:

“Once they yell action, you're a werewolf and you're not thinking about it. But before, there's a boom guy crouched behind you at ass level.”

Evans stars in GQ’s Annual Fall Fashion Preview, looking dreamy in a double-breasted suit. Manganiello shows off his abs along what looks like the backdrop of a gorgeous Greek island.

I think this summer has room for two Hollywood hotties.
