Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) covers Attitude Mag: would you hit it?

lewis attitude

“From Hogwarts to Hottie” indeed. Matthew Lewis played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films, and he turned into a beautiful butterfly, didn’t he? Damn bro. Lewis covers the new issue of Attitude magazine and now everyone is hot and bothered. You can see Attitude’s feature here. There’s a lot of hot, furry man. And it’s glorious. I love it when a dude is naturally hairy and they don’t feel the need to shave or wax their bodies. It’s hot.

Lewis is especially fit these days because he’s about to play a personal trainer in a romantic comedy. He tells the magazine that he’s shunned sugar, carbs and alcohol:

“I spoke to the director and I said it’d be nice to get into the mindset of someone like Patrick, because he’s not drinking alcohol, he’s just eating salads all the time. I was very interested to know where you go to in your mind to have that level of commitment. So I sort of gave up alcohol – I say sort of, I have given up alcohol. It’s tough. I do the pub quiz every week, and I’m sitting there every Wednesday with a Diet Coke… I’m off sugar and I can’t really eat carbs. I really wanted to see if I could stick to such a strict regime, and to really understand what it’s like to have a goal like that and really 110% go for it. I mean I’ve always been a bit of a sports enthusiast anyway, I love the gym and all that stuff, but I can’t wait for a pint of lager, I tell you that! The pizza and beer will definitely be making a comeback over the summer.”

[From The Daily Mail]

If this is what it takes to get that body… no, it’s still not worth it if you have to give up carbs. But I appreciate the effort and seriously, damn bro. He’s so hot. Even JK Rowling thinks so! She tweeted Lewis this morning:

His legs though… my God!

    I clicked the article… The photo loaded… And the noise I made should probably be illegal. Puberty was SO good to you, Neville. And is it bad that I think it’s f@cking hilarious that JK Rowling openly drools over these guys? Admittedly weird as hell, since she’s known them since they were 11… But still kinda funny. But still pretty weird. Eh. I can’t decide. Halp.

    Edit: it seems I misread her tweet. It sounds more like a mom who doesn’t want to see either of her sons naked, not like she’s drooling. Nvm. Not weird. Just funny.

    • Snazzy says:

      I didn’t see it as drooling. It was more like she was an aunt finding a pic like that of her fave nephew … I thought her reaction was hilarious. Afterwards she sent him another tweet, something about her supporting him in all he does, but for him to put his clothes back on :)

      But yes, puberty was indeed very good to him! #allaboutthefur

    • Bridget says:

      Puberty really was good to him. It was so funny to me that they actually had to unattractive him up for the last couple of Harry Potter movies.

      • mimif says:

        I feel like those pics should have come with a ***SPOILERS*** alert.

      • Bridget says:

        Neville was also one of my very favorite characters, so I’d have a soft spot for him even if he hadn’t grown up so well.

    • Shambles says:

      Or a *GRAB AN EXTRA PAIR OF UNDIES* alert.

    • Franca says:

      I liked him better as Neville :shrugs:

      Also, I’ve seen he posted a shirtless photo which is a major turn off.

  2. M.A.F. says:

    God damn! I…yeah. I’m not into hairy men but I could get into that!

    • Shambles says:

      My bf is naturally fuzzy and I kinda love it. To each their own ;)

      • Absolutely says:

        I like fur. Aidan Turner and Pierce Brosnan are my favorite furry men.

        Damn, Neville (sorry, Matthew).

        I feel dirty.

      • moomoo says:

        Me, too! Husband got laser treatment to some areas but I begged him to keep it on his chest and below his belly button! He didn’t listen for the chest. :-(

    • Ennie says:

      To me nothing attracts me more than seeing hairy, well shaped arms and hands… for real!
      Love furry men!
      My hubs is so-so in the fur department, so that leaves me out to just ogle them ;)

  3. Goats on the Roof says:

    Yes, yes I would. *fans self*

  4. mom2two says:

    Yes, he’s grown to be quite a handsome man. And he seems like a very nice and funny guy.

  5. Talie says:

    Good for him! It’s always amazing to an “ugly duckling” blossom into a good-looking adult.

  6. Mia4S says:

    Gives hope to awkward little boys everywhere. Wow!

  7. LadyMTL says:

    I’m so confused, I remember this guy when he was a toothy kid and now he’s a…a man?? I shouldn’t be gaping, this is all kinds of wrong.

    *Gapes anyway*

  8. Kiki says:

    I don’t like too much hairy men either, but a thinly trimmed hair on the Che’s and chin is good enough for me to say he is hot and call me perverse but he is packing.

  9. Rachel says:

    I loved Neville before he was hot. In fact, Hot Neville is kind of freaking me out. Except for that picture in his skivvies… dammmmmmmmmnn.

    Also, I do think he trims his chest hair. Obviously not waxing it all off, but definitely trimming it. That’s the look of a guy who shaved his chest hair and is letting it grow back in.

  10. Lilacflowers says:

    More Neville Longbottom! Less Clooney!

  11. Samtha says:

    The puberty gods smiled on him, that’s for sure.

  12. paola says:

    God bless puberty!

    Talking about Harry Potter… i just realised the other day that the snake Harry set free in Philosopher’s Stone turned out to be Voldemort’s final Horcrux (Nagini)

    • swack says:

      @paola, I didn’t know that about the snake! And I’m a big Harry Pottery fan.

    • Dani Lakes DDS says:

      Unfortunately, that’s actually been debunked. Someone just made it up. Would have been a really cool plot twist, though.

    • Linn says:

      I don’t think that’s true? The snake Harry sets free in the first book is a boa constrictor (nonvenomous) while Nagini is clearly a poisonous snake.

    • paola says:

      I found it online as a quote from JK Rowling herself.
      “Yes, it’s rather funny, really, that next to no one realized the snake that harry set free in Philosopher’s Stone turned out to be Voldemort’s final Horcrux, Nagini”

      Regarding the fact Nagini was a deadly venomous snake: Horcruxes have their own ways of defending themselves, so it is possible that Nagini was never venomous until after she became a horcrux?

      • Sarah B says:

        Sorry to nerd out, but Voldemort created the Horcruxes before his “death” when Harry was 1, which was why he was able to survive.

        Harry set the snake free just before his 11th birthday, so Nagini would’ve been venomous for 10 years at that point.

      • Bridget says:

        Sarah, we don’t actually have a specific timeline on when each Horcrux was created, though we tend to think of Harry as the final Horcrux. It is possible that Nagini was made a Horcrux after Voldemort became corporeal again in the 4th book, as his soul was so unstable at that point from being ripped apart so many times – after all, Nagini doesn’t quite fit the profile of any of his other Horcruxes aside from Harry, the accidental Horcrux, as the rest were extremely rare artifacts. The several Horcruxes in existence of his death would have sufficiently enabled him to come back to life.

        Wow, I am such a nerd.

      • paola says:

        I’m glad to see you don’t only nerd about GoT but also about Harry Potter.

        *High fives Bridget*

      • Linn says:

        I agree with Bridget. Voldemort created the other Horcruxes before his fall but I don’t think it’s true about Nagini.

        Voldemort meant to use Harry’s death to create the last Horcruxe, which obviously didn’t go as planned, so he still had one left when he was reborn.

        “However, if my calculations are correct, Voldemort was still at least one Horcrux short of his goal of six when he entered your parents’ house with the intention of killing you. He seems to have reserved the process of making Horcruxes for particularly significant deaths. You would certainly have been that. He believed that in killing you, he was destroying the danger the prophecy outlined. He believed he was making himself invincible. I am sure that he intended to make his final Horcrux with your death. As we know he failed. After an interval of some years, however, he used Nagini to kill an old muggle man.”
        Chapter 23 of The Half Blood Prince

      • Bridget says:

        Paola, I love Harry Potter! I’ve read those books countless times, and yet they still don’t get old. JK Rowling really came up with something special.

      • paola says:

        I agree Bridget.
        If I could turn back time I would read them before watching the movies. That was a huge mistake.
        JK Rowling came up with some really bright ideas: new words, new places and such a clever plot line. And so complicated.
        I think they’re on the top of my favourite books’ list along with ‘The prince of Tides’, ‘The city of the beasts’ and ‘River God’.

      • Bridget says:

        I had only seen movie #2 before I read any of the books, and I picked up my copy of The Deathly Hallows the day it came out, and I truly loved that final book. I think its one of the all-time great finales; she let almost everyone have their moment to shine, and the Battle of Hogwarts was so unbelievably epic. Though I chuckle at the comparison of that and the final obstacle course of book 1, where the best that each professor could come up with was easily solved by a bunch of 11 year olds.

        Also, Snaps wrecks me. As does Neville’s defiance. And the fact that you don’t want to mess with Mrs. Wesley.

    • Ennie says:

      NAgini was made into a Horcrux with the death of someone from the ministry… I think it was a woman who died in Albania? She became mad after a bad spell to make her lose her memory, and she went to Albania later and never came back… She was found by someone in Voldy’s team and she was sacrificed to make Nagini a Horcrux.

  13. Mich says:

    Some of the responses to that tweet are hysterical: ‘Pubis Expecto!”, “Master of the Puberty Spell”, “Accio Abs!”.

  14. lisa says:

    10 pts gryffindor!

  15. serena says:

    Definitely. Oh Neville has grown to be a wonderful hot man (the Harry Potter fangirl in me is rejoincing).

  16. insomniac says:

    Haha, that tweet from Rowling cracked me up.

    And yeah, Matthew grew up very nicely. Reminds me of the first time I saw Jerry O’Connell as an adult after carrying around the mental image of him as the little fat kid from “Stand By Me.”

  17. OSTONE says:

    Oh I would hit it, hard.

  18. Midnightatthemuseum says:

    Now we know where Neville keeps his toad……

  19. Greek chic says:

    I thought it was Adam Levine on the cover.

    I am sorry but I didn’t notice the legs…

  20. Bea says:

    He looks like a young Clive Owen, that is never a bad thing.

  21. Dani L. says:

    Indeed I would. I could ignore all the hair for one night.

  22. InvaderTak says:

    Rowling rules.

  23. Kelly says:

    I thought it was Adam Levine and now I can’t unsee him.

  24. Alyce says:

    I’m 27 so he’s not actually that much younger but it still feels wrong. But he sure did grow up nice!

  25. INeedANap says:

    He’s gorgeous and seems like a sweet, affable guy.

    Yes please. Every day and twice on Sunday.

    (All the Harry Potter kids have come out pretty OK, right?)

  26. kri says:

    I thought it was Adam Levine for a sec,and I was all NO. Now I am all YES. I love a man who keeps his body hair. At least some of it. He looks amazing.

  27. Lucy says:

    Too hot, hot damn!! He’s gorgeous.

  28. kibbles says:

    Wow! He is my new celebrity crush. His body is gorgeous and he has just the right amount of body hair in my opinion. He really has what I consider to be the ideal male body. He’s the best looking guy that came out of Harry Potter. If I were Emma Watson I’d be all over that.

  29. Size Does Matter says:

    Dude is hot. Anybody know how tall he is? Maybe he’s still, um, growing? Ok, now I feel weird.

  30. Katenotkatie says:

    Well damn. His metamorphosis reminds me of Nicholas Hoult’s- the most awkward looking boys are now the hottest men. Thank the puberty gods.

    • Alyce says:

      I still find Nick Holt kinda strange looking. Different strokes for different folks though.

      • Linn says:

        I like Nick but Matthew does nothing for me. I can see why other people would find him attractive, but I wouldn’t hit it.

  31. JBH says:

    He has a men’s “hourglass” figure on the cover.
    Am I seeing things?

  32. Tig says:

    I can’t wait to see the movie that’s responsible for his “transformation”- Me Before You. I loved the book. I think it’s so funny when these actors go,essentially, enjoy while you can, bec I am drinking like a fish once the movie wraps! Congrats to him- the hard work and diet clearly paid off!

  33. Lara K says:

    Oh Lordy, he is so hot! And like a real, accessible hot!
    So wish I was 10 years younger… Or even five

  34. Naddie says:

    He looks really, really good, but his long face will be always weird to me. Would I hit it? I say no, but that’s easy to say when he’s not in front of me.

  35. Adrien says:

    Clive Owen + Adam Levine – Adam Levine= Yes, I would.

  36. GlimmerBunny says:

    He’s good-looking now, but I was never into any of the kids* in Harry Potter. Give me Lucius Malfoy, Sirius Black, Scabior, Snape or Barty Crouch Jr. ANY DAY!

    *Young Voldemort in “Chamber of Secrets” was the only hot young actor in my opinion. Cedric was okay.

  37. jaye says:

    That underwear pic, though. I mean, heavens to murgatroid. I can’t get right.

  38. QQ says:

    Damn.. I made such a rude Noise.. Good God All that fur.. Yes .. OMG..Im at a loss for words
