Joe Manganiello has said the success of his marriage to Sofia Vergara proves his ''instincts about her were right''.

The 43-year-old Magic Mike actor, who tied the knot with the 48-year-old Modern Family star in 2015, admits how he knew "pretty quickly" that she was 'the one'.

Speaking to People magazine,  he said: ''I knew pretty quickly that I could trust her, and she knew pretty quickly that she could trust me.

"And we're both the kind of people who are capable of putting the other person ahead of ourselves.

''I was capable of putting her wishes ahead of mine, whatever they were, and she was capable of doing the same. Once you have that, you don't let go of it.''

''My instincts about her were right.''

Manganiello said he and his wife have been enjoying spending time together in lockdown, and admits the pair caught up on each other's favourite TV shows and movies.

''Sofia had never seen Mad Men, which I saw every episode of and was obsessed with, so we went through all of Mad Men.

''Then she had never seen The Sopranos and I was like, 'That's the greatest show that's ever been made that kicked off all of the great cable shows. It paved the way. You have to see these.' So I watched The Sopranos again. She thought it was brilliant.''

He added: ''I love [director] John Milius so I watched Conan the Barbarian again, and I've been going through David Fincher movies.

''And we watched all three seasons of Eastbound & Down, which she'd never seen.''
