Joe Manganiello insists True Blood nude scenes are not gratuitous

But despite the show's reputation for risque nude scenes, Manganiello is adamant he doesn't reveal all just for gratuitous reasons.

He tells Out magazine, "It just makes sense. It's not gratuitous; it's realistic. If you're a werewolf and you transform, you lose everything... The show is a deconstruction of supernatural creatures. It's not like other werewolf projects, where you magically reappear with tiny jean shorts on."
