Don't Mess With Joe Manganiello in 'A Streetcar Named Desire'

By: Brandon Voss

True Blood hunk Joe Manganiello returns to the stage as Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire, which officially opens tonight at New Haven's Yale Repertory Theatre.

But if you get tickets to the Tennessee Williams classic, please be warned that, much like his iconic character, you wouldn't like Joe when he's angry. reports that the beloved oft-shirtless wonder went off on a audience member taking pictures during last night's final preview performance. Staying in character, the actor yelled, “Can you stop with the camera? You have no idea how distractin’ it is!” He also tweeted from backstage, "Dear person taking pictures during our show tonight… The ushers are going to be looking for you and you will be thrown out… you are insanely distracting to all of the actors onstage and incredibly rude. If you read this, please leave and don’t come back.”
