‘Harry Potter’s’ Neville Beefs Up For Racy Spread, J.K. Rowling Reacts

Neville aka Matthew Lewis from Harry Potter has grown up. There’s even a meme in the Harry Potter’s universe that despite playing a nerdy character for most of the Harry Potter franchise, actor Matthew Lewis has grown out of that awkward phase to transform into a good looking hunk.

For a few years now, fans have been shocked over just how different Lewis looks from when he first started playing Neville Longbottom. Here are a few comparisons for anyone who is out of the loop.

So yes, little Neville has been turning heads for a while now, but a new spread for Attitude magazine focused on Matthew took him to a whole other level that has fans drooling. Here’s a quick look at the photos that everyone is using heart eye emojis over.

Of course, media blogger Perez Hilton got in on the fun too.

That said, there’s one person who isn’t fawning over the heartthrob and that’s Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. The author, who has seen Matthew Lewis grow up before her eyes, was practically scandalized by the whole thing, and even took to Twitter to post a message about the racy photos of her once sweet Neville Longbottom.

Of course, the Harry Potter author is referencing the Broadway play that Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, starred in while in the buff.

What’s your reaction to seeing little Neville all grown up?
