Actor Joe Manganiello went "deaf" after working with screaming fans on 'Magic Mike XXL'

Joe Manganiello went "deaf" after working with screaming fans on 'Magic Mike XXL'.

The 37-year-old actor has revealed that his hearing suffered after he and his 'Magic Mike XXL' co-stars, Channing Tatum and Matt Bomer, filmed a scene with some hysterical extras.

Joe explained: "This time, there were 900 during our dance scene, so it was a bigger rush.

"The sound of 900 screaming women is literally deafening. My ears were ringing for days after I did my final routine."

However, the 'True Blood' star - who is currently dating actress Sofia Vergara, 42, - revealed that he wasn't fussed about learning the complicated stripping routines because he's so used to it by now.

Talking at the launch of the MB Chronowing smart watch at Soho House in West Hollywood on Thursday (06.11.14), Joe told PEOPLE magazine: "It's not a big deal any more. It's old hat at this point."

He also added that the best part of filming was the delicious food that he and his fellow co-stars Elizabeth Banks, Jada Pinkett Smith and Michael Strahan got to enjoy on set.

Joe shared: "I eat like a normal human being when I'm not training. We were in the South. So there's chicken pot pies and fried chicken and you know, sweet potato souffle, all that good fun stuff."

'Magic Mike XXL' is due out in cinemas from July 2015.
