While Daniel Radcliffe honed his stage acting skills and Emma Watson became an outspoken advocate for women’s rights, Matthew Lewis (a.k.a. Neville Longbottom) has spent his post–Harry Potter career becoming very hot.

He continues excel in this pursuit, most recently by posing for the June issue of Attitude in nothing more than a cardigan, underwear, and abs. At first glance, the brain thinks: Hot damn! Longbottom? Neville Hotbottom is more like it.

But then visions of his dopey little-kid face start to emerge. The desire to lick his adult-man abs is replaced by memories of his love of Herbology. The burn of lust is replaced by searing shame. Even J.K. Rowling felt uncomfortable:

When child stars mature into hot adults, we all feel like creeps. (But seriously, Neville, call me.)
