In Magic Mike XXL we get to know Big Dick Richie a little better and find out he’s a closeted Backstreet Boys fan. But in real life, actor Joe Manganiello is out and proud with his BSB love.
In an interview with The Daily Beast, Manganiello admits that men can’t deny the power of the boy band’s hit, “I Want It That Way.” Though, as Manganiello makes clear, BSB are really a “five-part harmony group,” not a boy band.
“I’m kind of obsessed with the idea that no matter how tough you think you are as a man, ‘I Want It That Way’ comes on the radio and you roll that window up and sing at the top of your lungs,” Manganiello said laughing. “You’re the sixth member of the group, harmonizing.”
