When the final installment of the Harry Potter series hit theaters in 2011, audiences everywhere were treated to a delightful surprise. No, it wasn't Daniel Radcliffe dressed in an old-man wig during the film's epilogue. It was the totally grown-up and totally sexy Neville Longbottom. A magic, sword-swinging, world-saving, hotter-than-hot Neville Longbottom. And, as it turns out, the transformation — or, at least, the world's reaction to the transformation — came as a bit of a shock to Longbottom himself.

Matthew Lewis — as he's known when he's not starring in HP movies — made an appearance at the VIP preview for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando last week and ever so graciously addressed his coming-of-age. In fact, he told People that he's "incredibly flattered" by all the attention he's been getting. "It kind of leaves me at a loss for words," he explained. "I don't know what to make of it."
Lewis is also a bit embarrassed by watching his former self on-screen. "I cringe, I really do," he told the mag of seeing the early Potter films. "It's like home movies. When your parents get your home movies out, no kid wants to watch that!" (People)
