Todo mundo que leu Harry Potter não se esquece do personagem Neville Longbottom interpretado pelo ator inglês Matthew Lewis. Atualmente com 25 anos, Matthew está no novo filme Como Eu Era Antes de Você (Me Before You) que será lançado ano que vem, seu segundo grande papel em um filme depois de Harry Potter. Lewis está na capa da edição de junho da revista Attitude e revelou que está se divertindo com seu status de novo galã. Confira fotos do Matthew Lewis de cueca na Attitude Magazine:
Matthew Lewis comentou sobre praticamente ter parado de beber para interpretar seu novo personagem em Me Before You:
“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.”
Também comentou sobre sua transformação ao tirar o aparelho dos dentes e mudar seu corpo, e falou que não se considera bonito, mas sim na média.
“Whenever I go back to Leeds or see people I went to school with they always talk about my veneers. I’m like, ‘I haven’t got veneers, these are my actual teeth!’ If I can’t f*cking convince people I went to school with how am I going to convince anyone else! I had these braces – which were fucking painful by the way – for six months, and then it was kind of a weird thing, I was excited I guess to go on the red carpet on the release of the last film and be me, and not to have to have the fat suit under my t-shirt. It was quite an exciting buzz. I was 21, I was like ‘yeah, this’ll be cool!’ It was never meant to be a ‘hey everyone, look at me!’ but it was nice to be able to go and be myself. And then obviously a lot of attention focused on it, which I didn’t expect at all. I’ve never considered myself to be good-looking at all. Just average.”
