Harry Potter hunk Matthew Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom, shows off his body for Attitude Magazine, but author J.K. Rowling would rather not see him nearly naked.

Has dorky Neville Longbottom taken some polyjuice potion?! Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis is revealing his amazing body by posing shirtless (hello, six-pack!) on the cover of the UK’s Attitude magazine, and in little more than an open cardigan and Emporio Armani briefs (Accio ice cubes!) inside the pages.

Though fans are panting over his impressive physique, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling would rather see the 25-year-old hunk fully dressed.

Though he has apologized to the world-famous author for the unexpected surprise, Lewis told the magazine that he’s glad to finally show the world the real him.

“I was excited, I guess, to go on the red carpet on the release of the last film and be me, and not have to have the fat suit under my T-shirt,” he said. “It was quite an exciting buzz.”

And though Lewis has been hearing a lot of chatter about his good looks, the actor said he wasn’t expecting it, nor does he think he’s all that.

“I’ve never considered myself to be good looking at all,” he admitted. “Just average.”

Lewis will next be starring in the film Me Before You, in which he’ll play a triathlete and personal trainer. To prepare for the role, he’s adjusted his diet to get into the mindset of the character and transform his body even more.

“I’m off sugar and I can’t really eat carbs,” he said. “I really wanted to see if I could stick to such a strict regime, and to really understand what it’s like to have a goal like that and really 110 percent go for it.”

Me Before You is currently scheduled to be released in 2016.
