Joe Manganiello inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger

London: `True Blood` star Joe Manganiello says he admires the way action star Arnold Schwarzenegger shaped his career in Hollywood.

The 37-year-old `Magic Mike` actor starred alongside Schwarzenegger in the action film `Sabotage` earlier this year, and has remained close friends since, reportedly.

Manganiello says the 66-year-old actor inspired his own career in Hollywood. "He`s my friend," he said. "Just hanging out with him, you realise what`s possible with your life. It takes a lot of work.

"I just visited him on the set of Terminator 5. We hung out, smoked a cigar, it was great. We`re a couple of people who are not afraid to get dirty and do the work."
