Joe Manganiello may have ranked number one in People’s annual Hottest Bachelors list, but there’s more to celebrate than just his looks—the actor has some pretty good taste, as well. He recently admitted that Princess Leia was among his first crushes.

"'Star Wars' was my whole life when I was little. At that age, I was like, ‘I need to go find my Princess Leia!’” the actor joked to People. (We can bet he’s probably excited for the new “Star Wars” movie, where Carrie Fisher reprises her iconic role.)

The “True Blood” actor also revealed that despite his vampire alter ego, he’s a bit of a softie when it comes to relationships. “I like hugs and kisses and snuggling,” he admits to the magazine. While “True Blood” is currently in its final season on HBO, Manganiello won’t be off our screens for long—a “Magic Mike” sequel is already in the works, where he’ll be reprising his role as stripper “Big Dick Richie.”
