Neville Longbottom be gone! Evanesco even! (That’s the Wizarding world spell to disappear, lol)
Matthew Lewis has been making jaws drop and tongues wag over the past couple years from his RIDICULOUS (-ly awesome) transformation from the pudgy-faced boy into the shredded hotness he is today.
This time around, it’s for the cover of ‘Attitude‘ magazine in the UK, where he discusses his new movie, Me Before You, and his character development…giving good reason for his current state of ripped-ness.
“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 [laughs].”
Seems to be working Matty…
Day-UM! He sure has come a long way from this…
Is that super creepy or what 😯
He certainly is all grown-up, and now facing some very adult problems…like, what to do with body hair when playing a character that is a hairless triathlete:
“Apparently triathletes shave their legs for added aerodynamics, to buy you that extra couple of milliseconds. And my character, that is what he would do, so I think I’ll be losing the leg hair! I haven’t waxed before. I was quite keen just to shave every day but it was Emilia’s idea. She was like ‘no just wax it! Then you’ll only have to do it once!’ I was like ‘argh!’ I haven’t done it yet but we’ll see!”
I do believe I’m going to have to check this flick out.
It’s set to be released to theaters on March 18, 2016.
Here’s something a little extra, lagniappe if you will 😉
He’s cuddling a PUP-PAY! ❤
My day just got a whole lot better!
