Neville Longbottom aka Matthew Lewis Covers Attitude: ‘Harry Potter’ Star Goes Shirtless For Gay Mag

May 25, 2015 | By TheSpreadit More

Matthew Lewis, aka Neville Longbottom, from the Harry Potter movie franchise is all grown up. The English actor is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Attitude. Lewis’ hot pictures turned him instantly into a sex symbol; this is something that J.K. Rowling, the author of the popular books, was not ready to see.

Matthew Lewis, 25, became an international star after appearing in the Harry Potter movies, now he is trying to change the child star narrative. He covers and poses shirtless for the June issue of Attitude, a British gay lifestyle magazine.

The role of Neville Longbottom seems a very distant memory for Lewis after photos of his most recent photo shoot surfaced online. With one move, the Bluestone 42 actor became an icon in the gay community and a popular figure with the ladies. For Attitude‘s swimwear and underwear issue, Lewis goes all in by showing his six-pack abs and putting his bulge on full display.

All of this hotness was too much for J.K. Rowling to handle. Rowling, who has known Lewis since he was still a young boy, jokingly told him on Twitter to please go put a shirt on. She wrote:

“Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God’s sake. I will always support you whatever you want to do, Matthew. Now go put some clothes on.”

Rowling’s tweets have gone viral, but Lewis handled the whole thing very well. He answered Rowling with:

“Well, this is awkward. Sorry, Jo…

Lewis was always in good shape, but for his upcoming movie, Me Before You, he decided to push things to the next level. He shared:

“My character, Patrick, is a triathlete and personal trainer, so he’s totally focused on the race that he’s going to be running. I spoke to the director and I said it’d be nice to get into the mindset of someone like that, because he’s not drinking alcohol, he’s just eating salads all the time, and 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.”

The Wasteland actor also opened up about his physical transformation after shooting the last Harry Potter film. Lewis shared:

“Whenever I go back to Leeds or see people I went to school with they always talk about my veneers. I’m like, ‘I haven’t got veneers, these are my actual teeth!’ If I can’t f*cking convince people I went to school with how am I going to convince anyone else! I had these braces – which were fucking painful by the way – for six months, and then it was kind of a weird thing, I was excited I guess to go on the red carpet on the release of the last film and be me, and not to have to have the fat suit under my t-shirt. It was quite an exciting buzz. I was 21, I was like ‘yeah, this’ll be cool!’ It was never meant to be a ‘hey everyone, look at me!’ but it was nice to be able to go and be myself. And then obviously a lot of attention focused on it, which I didn’t expect at all. I’ve never considered myself to be good-looking at all. Just average.”

Matthew Lewis at age 25 seems to be very focused on his craft. Some are even predicting that in the future he could land the role of James Bond.
