Remember when Nick Jonas posed shirtless in Flaunt Magazine and essentially threw his Disney reputation and virginal past into the dust? Whatever means he needed to prove that he was a grown man seemed to really work. And now, Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis has done the human population the good service of following in Jonas' foot steps. The only person who seemed to mind Neville Longbottom's tanned torso out in full view was, rightfully, J.K. Rowling, because she watched him grow up — unlike many of us, in person, rather than on screen — and the character he played is like her child. So yeah... that has to have been a little awkward.
Since his days on the Harry Potter set, Lewis has go on to star as a British soldier in the television series, Bluestone 42. As shocking as his transformation might seem to some who haven't been following his career post-Potter, the actor is indeed a very grown 25-year-old man who has been seducing us all long before this infamous photo shoot.
How, you might ask? Well, my friends, Lewis has been dropping hints of his upcoming reveal as smoldering shirtless model for the past few years, so lo and behold: all of the times Matthew Lewis has tried to seduce you and, now, succeeded in making fans drool around the world.

Look at that subtle movement. So talented, so mysterious.
8. When He Said This
