6 Guys From Your Childhood Who Did A Really Good Job Growing Up


  1. Neville Longbottom
    Or Matthew Lewis, as his parents (and no one else) call him. We first met Neville in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” when he looked like a British Beans with a snaggletooth and a gut. Now he’s a chiseled, bronzed god with the most lickable core I’ve ever seen. It’s a shame he didn’t look like this for any of the Harry Potter movies, but if he had, I probably wouldn’t have paid attention to anything other than his puppy dog eyes and scruffy jawline. Mama like.

    A "regram" (is that what they call it?) from the one and only @josephsinclair. That boy got mad skillz with the camera.

  2. William Mosely
    It’s probably unfair for me to include this guy on the list, because I’m pretty sure he was just born sexy. My boy Will first graced the majority of us with his portrayal of the oldest brother Peter in the Narnia movies. I definitely spent most of 2005 googling pictures of him and printing them out for my locker. Now he plays Prince Liam in the E! show “The Royals,” that is so bad that you can’t help but watch every episode, twice.

  3. Josh Peck
    It’s safe to say no one saw this coming. Josh was definitely the funnier of the two brothers on “Drake and Josh,” but he was also 800 pounds, and lacked even an inkling of sex appeal. Drake was the one who sparked a sexual awakening in the hearts of preteens everywhere, and helped us all develop a taste for bad boys. Josh’s transformation came out of nowhere. One minute we were drooling over his on-screen brother, and suddenly Josh presented his sculpted jaw like “Not so fast, bitches.”

  4. Jonathan Lipnicki
    Okay, so this guy kinda fell off the grid after playing George in “Stuart Little” when he was still practically a zygote. We all knew his face when we were kids, but he hasn’t appeared in a major movie in a long ass time. Little did we know that the only reason he stopped acting was because he was spending so much time working on his hot bod. Now he passes the time practicing mixed martial arts and thinking of the perfect way to ask me out (Fine, I made that last part up, but a girl can dream).

  5. Nicholas Hoult
    Remember the fat kid from “About a Boy?” Yeah, he grew up super hot, and then started banging Jennifer Lawrence. He also portrayed a zombie in “Warm Bodies” and gave me a lady boner for the undead. He recently played a role in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and still managed to be hot despite the fact that his post-apocalyptic makeup was terrifying and he disguised his English accent. Snaps for Nicholas.

    Lol our couple name is #Joult?? 🙂

  6. The Fat Sprouse Twin
    Dylan, that is. He was the more rambunctious of the two on “Suite Life of Zack and Cody,” and inexplicably fatter than his twin. Seriously, how did that happen? Was his dressing room just better stocked? His blonde mop and lack of personal hygiene in the show was a major turnoff, but then he went and grew into a total fox. It also helps his image that his brother, Cole, has taken to wearing strange vests and growing his hair out, trying to be a hipster but ultimately looking like a founding father. Props to both of them for getting a college education.
