The glamour, pressure and constant excitement of being part of Tinseltown, where you're eternally in the spotlight, certainly isn't for everyone. But hey, if it means that we can spend an afternoon sipping on a decaf latte with Chris Hemsworth (AKA big, strong, muscular Thor), or jogging up in the Hollywood Hills with the benevolent and charismatic Ashton Kutcher, then to that we say "oooh yeah!".
From the established legends like Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, and Daniel Craig, to the new generation of A-listers like Tom Hardy, Eddie Redmayne, Josh Hutcherson and more, there are no shortage of movie men who can make any viewer's heart skip a couple of beats.
If you told us that you never dreamed of a young Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Evans, or Zac Efron sweeping you off your feet, then frankly, we wouldn't believe you. There is so much talent (we're talking acting-wise, and aesthetic) littered across the movie industry that sometimes it's often way too difficult to pick a go-to actor and stick with them. The good news is that most of these A-listers have bank accounts that surpass anything we could possibly imagine, so with one of them as a hubby, we'll be able to confidently say, "yeah, you know what Mr. Teeny Bopper-Chipotle-Employee, I WILL add guac to my burrito for an extra $2".
Without further ado, it's time to dive straight into this quiz. At the end of it, we'll give you a shiny new hubby to take home (well, figuratively).
William Bradley Pitt, or better known to us simply as Brad Pitt, was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma on December 18th 1963. As told by IMDB, "An actor and producer known as much for his versatility as he is for his handsome face, Golden Globe-winner Brad Pitt's most widely recognized role may be Tyler Durden in Fight Club (1999). However, his portrayals of Billy Beane in Moneyball (2011), and Rusty Ryan in the remake of Ocean's Eleven (2001) and its sequels, also loom large in his filmography."
Young Leonardo DiCaprio
Is there a more iconic face than Leonardo DiCaprio in his early career? His reputation back then was up there in the upper echelon of actors. From his portrayal of the starcrossed-lover Jack in James Cameron's 1997 film Titanic, to his depiction of Frank Abagnale Jr in Catch Me If You Can, there's no denying that young Leo was a heartthrob and a half. Interestingly, as told by IMDB, in January 1999, Leo's lawyers filed an application to allow DiCaprio to copyright his own name.
Older Leonardo DiCaprio
After bursting onto the scene in his teenage years, DiCaprio has continued his success as he has grown older. While it's safe to say that he doesn't have the same appeal now as he did in his heyday, Leo still remains as one of the world's most high-profile actors. "In 2012, he played a mustache-twirling villain in Django Unchained (2012), and then tragic literary character Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby (2013) and Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)." - IMDB
Zac Efron (as a blonde)
As IMDB tells us, "Zac was raised in Arroyo Grande, CA. He took his first step toward acting at the age of eleven, after his parents noticed his singing ability. Singing and acting lessons soon led to an appearance in a production of "Gypsy" that ran 90 performances, and he was hooked. After appearing on-stage in "Peter Pan", "Auntie Mame", "Little Shop of Horrors" and "The Music Man", guest parts quickly followed on television series, including Firefly (2002), ER (1994), CSI: Miami (2002), NCIS (2003), and The Guardian (2001). " Then, Zac Efron finally broke onto the movie scene in a big way thanks to High School Musical, for which he won the Teen Choice Award for Breakout Star.
The Rock, as he was known in his wrestling days, is now one of the highest paid people in the entire entertainment industry. He earned $12 million for Hercules in 2014, $15 million for Walking Tall in 2004, and $5.5 million for The Scorpion King, way back in 2002. With a long list of countless other film and tv appearances, plus over twenty years in the wrestling business, it's safe to say that for Dwayne Johnson, money is no issue.
Johnny Depp (born John Christopher Depp II) is probably most famous for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean. According to IMDB, "In 1990, after numerous roles in teen-oriented films, his first of a handful of great collaborations with director Tim Burton came about when Depp played the title role in Edward Scissorhands (1990). Following the film's success, Depp carved a niche for himself as a serious, somewhat dark, idiosyncratic performer, consistently selecting roles that surprised critics and audiences alike".
Born in Boston back in 1971, this actor has not only made great strides in the industry, but has even opened up his own fast food burger chain. "Mark Wahlberg is one of a handful of respected entertainers who successfully made the transition from teen pop idol to acclaimed actor. A Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee for The Departed (2006) who went on to receive positive critical reviews for his performance in The Fighter (2010), Wahlberg also is a solid comedy actor, proven by his starring role in Ted (2012)." - IMDB
When we think of this actor, we think of Deadpool, and that's pretty much the end of it. However, his acting career is much more broad that most of us realise, including films like Van Vilder, The Proposal, Life, Green Lantern, and Buried, a roughly 2-hour film of Ryan Reynolds trapped inside a coffin. Apparently, as Ryan has said himself, he was a troublesome child: " I would run around the neighborhood on Halloween throwing firecrackers in people's mailboxes, at their houses, and things like that. We were just these little hell raisers. I'm sure I have a lot to atone for, if there is a judgment day. It's gonna be a long list for me. It goes right up until I was about 18" (IMDB).
Gosling, initially from Canada, made his entertainment debut as part the The Mickey Mouse Club. According to IMDB, "He attended an open audition in Montreal for the TV series "The Mickey Mouse Club" (The All New Mickey Mouse Club (1989)) in January 1993 and beat out 17,000 other aspiring actors for a a spot on the show. While appearing on "MMC" for two years, he lived with co-star Justin Timberlake's family." With his partner, Eva Mendes, Ryan has two children.
James Franco with a moustache
Some people suit facial hair, that's just a fact. It's equally a fact that some people absolutely do not suit facial hair. Where does famous actor James Franco fall on that spectrum? We'll let you be the judge of that. While he does look a little scruffy in this image, it's still not as ragged as his character Tommy (Johnny) in The Disaster Artist. James was born on April 19th, 1978 in Palo Alto, California, and boasts a filmography to rival the industry's best and most successful actors.
James Franco clean shaven
Now this is the James Franco we're a little more accustomed to. James broke onto the scene in Freaks and Geeks in 1999, and since has starred or featured over 150 titles. Franco tried for the role of Spider-man (2002), but as IMDB states, "After losing the lead role to Tobey Maguire, James settled for the part of "Harry Osborne", Spider-Man's best friend in the summer 2002 major hit Spider-Man (2002). He returned to the Osborne role for the next two films in the trilogy."
As the younger brother of James, Dave sat in his shadow for a while, but now is truly well-established in his own right. "Dave made his first television appearance at the age of 21, in 2006, in an episode of 7th Heaven (1996). A string of high-profile TV work followed, interspersed with roles in some moderately successful movies, including Charlie St. Cloud (2010) and Fright Night (2011), and he came to bigger prominence when he played Eric Molson in the hit movie version of the cult TV series 21 Jump Street (2012). " (IMBD)
Clive Owen, originally from England in the UK, is an established and versatile actor. As described by IMDB, he " is one of a handful of stars who, though he is best known for his art house films, can handle more mainstream films with equal measures of grace and skill. Owen is typically cast as characters whose primary traits are a balance of physical strength, intellect, conflicting soul but forceful will. He is best known to film audiences for his work in Children of Men (2006), Closer (2004) and his breakout part in Croupier (1998)."
If there was a better individual performance by an actor as a villain than Heath Ledger's Joker, then please, point us in that direction. Heath was born in Perth, Western Australia, but as the story goes: "When he was seventeen he and a friend decided to pack up, leave school, take a car and rough it to Sydney. Heath believed Sydney to be the place where dreams were made or, at least, where actors could possibly get their big break. Upon arriving in Sydney with a purported sixty-nine cents to his name, Heath tried everything to get a break." (IMDB)
"James Frecheville is an actor and producer, known for Black '47 (2018), Animal Kingdom (2010) and The Drop (2014)." While he is not as household a name as some of the other mega stars on this quiz, it can certainly be argued that he's a bit of a heartthrob. James has appeared in a number of TV episodes of Requiem as Nick Dean, as well the of of Buster in the hit TV show New Girl. He will also feature in The Seven Sorrows of Mary, which is a film currently in production.
Colin Firth is an Oscar-winning actor from England. As IMDB tell it, "His first professional role was as "Bennet" in the West End production of "Another Country". From this performance, he was chosen to play the character of "Judd" in the movie of the play. He went on to play a variety of character parts in both film and television... In 2011, he won the Oscar for Best Actor for his commanding leading role, playing George VI in The King's Speech (2010)."
We've got another actor coming all the way from across the pond! "Taron Egerton was born on November 10, 1989 in Birkenhead, Cheshire, England as Taron David Egerton. He is an actor, known for Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014), Eddie the Eagle (2015) and Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)". Funnily enough, according to IMDB, "His name, "Taron", is a version of the traditional Welsh name, "Taran", which means "thunder". His name came from a spelling mistake on his mother's part, putting an "o" instead of the second "a"."
Born on April 26, 1980 in Cullman, Alabama, Channing Tatum finally got his big break when he was cast in a Ricky Martin music video, where he was paid $400 for a 7-day shoot. As told by IMDB, "Channing can be seen on the big screen as a featured actor in Coach Carter (2005), in which he plays a high school basketball player. He was also in the very popular TV series CSI: Miami (2002) where he played the role of Bob Davenport."
As indicated by IMDB, Nicolas cage "often plays eccentric wisecracking characters", has "Sharp, dark, pointy eyebrows and striking blue eyes", and he "Loves to improvise, occasionally to the annoyance of other cast members." He clearly grew up in a star-studded community, considering that he went to the same high school as number of famous names, including: Angelina Jolie, Michael Klesic, Lenny Kravitz, David Schwimmer, Jonathan Silverman, Gina Gershon and more. According to IMDB, Cage's last name at birth was Coppola, but "Cage changed his name early in his career to make his own reputation, succeeding brilliantly with a host of classic, quirky roles by the late 1980s."
Shia LaBeouf is a famous actor today, but as a kid, "he and his parents would dress up like clowns and sell hotdogs in the park across the street from their apartment." (IMDB). Shia "is well known for playing Louis Stevens on the popular Disney Channel series Even Stevens (2000) and has won a Daytime Emmy Award for his performance. His best known role is as Sam Witwicky, the main protagonist of the first three installments of the Transformers series: Transformers (2007), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)." (IMDB)
Joseph is a Los Angeles native, who was born into the entertainment industry, with both of his parents working for the Pacifica Radio station KPFK-FM. He has been featured in a number of tv shows, tv movies, and feature films over his journey. "In 2010, he headlined the indie drama Hesher (2010) and also established himself as a mainstream star in Christopher Nolan's Inception (2010). Balancing both independent and Hollywood film, Joseph scored another Golden Globe nod for the drama 50/50 (2011)" (IMDB).
Daniel Radcliffe has gone on to star in a number of other films and projects as an adult, but there is no way that this actor will ever escape from the association of being Harry Potter, 'the boy who lived'. Aside from his role in the wildly successful fantasy world of Harry Potter, and his other films, Radcliffe has also appeared in theatre on Broadway. According to IMDB, "Radcliffe debuted as J. Pierrepont Finch in the 2011 Broadway revival How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, a role previously held by Broadway veterans Robert Morse and Matthew Broderick"
Has anyone realised how similar Elijah Wood and Daniel Radcliffe look? It's uncanny! Anyway, moving on... As told by IMDB, "Elijah Wood is an actor best known for portraying Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson's blockbuster Lord of the Rings film trilogy. In addition to reprising the role in The Hobbit series, Wood also played Ryan in the FX television comedy Wilfred (2011) and voiced Beck in the Disney XD animated television series TRON: Uprising (2012)." Funnily enough, his first official film credit was a minor role in Back to the Future Part II (1989).
Long-haired Matt Damon
Matt Damon is a Hollywood star, through on through. But rarely do we see the actor with the long, flowing locks. Do we like it? Do we prefer it over the clean-cut, sophisticated Matt Damon? Regardless of his haircut, at least we can appreciate that he's, in reality, a regular sized human. Unlike in one of his more recent films, Downsizing, where he is shrunk down to a size of a toothpick. This actor is best known for his roles as Jason Bourne in the Bourne series, as well as The Martian and the Oceans series.
Short-haired Matt Damon
Okay, here's the Matt Damon that we're a little more familiar with. This famous actor was born on October 8, 1970, in Boston. According to IMDB, "While in Harvard, he kept on skipping classes to pursue acting projects, which included the TNT original film, Rising Son (1990), and prep-school drama, School Ties (1992). It was until his film, Geronimo (1993), was expected to be a big success that he decided to drop out of university completely." So there you go... Damon is a University drop out!
As definitely the more acclaimed and universally-known Affleck (sorry, Casey), Ben has starred in a huge number of projects over his journey. As told by IMDB, "Affleck wanted to be an actor ever since he could remember, and his first acting experience was for a Burger King commercial, when he was on the PBS mini-series, The Voyage of the Mimi (1984). It was also at that age when Ben met his lifelong friend and fellow actor, Matt Damon. They played little league together and took drama classes together."
Chris Evans as Captain America
There's nothing totally out of the ordinary for how Chris Evans began his acting journey, taking the pathway of performing in school productions and community theatre. What is out the ordinary, however, are Captain America's abilities. I mean seriously, as if this Hollywood actor wasn't already hunky enough, they went and turned him into a darn superhero. He has been a pivotal member of the Avengers franchise in the MCU, but has also starred in a number of other feature films over the course of his journey, including Fantastic Four (2005).
Chris Evans as himself
Okay, we're moving away from the Captain America side of it all and focusing on Christopher Robert Evans just as himself, the average, everyday dude. Well, perhaps average isn't the right word, considering that this man lives a life of stardom has one of Hollywood's most recognisable faces. According to IMDB, "2007 proved to be one successful year for Chris, as he had two movies released around the world that same year, starting with the second installment of the Marvel franchise Fantastic Four". We must say, he definitely knows how to rock a suit.
Eddie Redmayne is most notable for his roles in Les Miserables as well as, more recently, the Fantastic Beasts films which intertwine with the Harry Potter universe. Like many actors, Redmayne began his career in theatre. IMDB explains: "Redmayne's first professional stage performance came in 2002 at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre where he played Viola in "Twelfth Night". In 2004, he won the prestigious Evening Standard Outstanding Newcomer Award for his working in Edward Albee's play "The Goat". Further stage successes followed, and in 2009, he starred in John Logan's "Red" at the Donmar Warehouse in London".
Caveman Christian Bale
Men are funny creatures, aren't they. One minute, they can have a baby-smooth face as soft as butter, and the next minute, they can look like they've just emerged from 15 years living in a cave. Okay, maybe the suit conflict's the scruffy look here a little, but it's certainly different to what we're used to with Christian Bale. He's most notable for his role as Bruce Wayne and Batman in the Batman films, however, we're struggling to imagine Gotham's masked defender with a fluffy beard and untamed mane.
Christian Bale as Batman
Batman has a unique, deep and distinguishable voice. But to be perfectly honest, it's a little darn difficult to understand at times. Like, c'mon man, just take the mask off when you're speaking. It's like when people talk with food in their mouth. Anyway, if you can move past this point, there would be a heck of a lot of perks to having Christian Bale as Batman as a right-hand man or partner. Just don't ask him where he goes at night...
Apparently, in Hawaiian, Keanu translates to "cool breeze over the mountains". According to IMDB, "His first popular success was the role of totally rad dude "Ted Logan" in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989). The wacky time-travel movie became something of a cultural phenomenon, and audiences would forever confuse Reeves's real-life persona with that of his doofy on-screen counterpart". Of course, Keanu is most recognised for his roles in The Matrix and its sequels, and his fast-paced action film, Speed, after which, "the understated actor became a big-budget action star" (IMDB).
Originally from Austin, Texas, Hawke has firmly established himself in Tinseltown. IMDB states that he "appeared in numerous films before taking a role in the Generation X drama Reality Bites (1994) for which he received critical praise. He starred in the romantic drama Before Sunrise (1995), and its later sequels Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013)." Furthermore, "His role as the father in the coming-of-age drama Boyhood (2014) earned him multiple award nominations, including the Academy, BAFTA, Golden Globe, and SAG Award for Best Supporting Actor".
Together with Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling, Keri Russell, Christina Aguilera, this singer/actor appeared as a child on The All New Mickey Mouse Club (1989).

After leaving the band and then creating and releasing his own music, "Timberlake has branched out into an acting career, having most recently starred in The Social Network (2010), Friends with Benefits (2011), and Trouble with the Curve (2012)." (As told by IMDB)

"At the age of eleven, Gyllenhaal made his movie debut in the comedy-drama City Slickers (1991), playing Billy Crystal's character's son. He made an impact in various films in the late 1990s and early 2000s, in films such as the period drama October Sky (1999), his breakthrough performance, and as the title role in the psychological thriller Donnie Darko (2001), for which he received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Actor, playing a psychologically troubled teenager." (IMDB)
Eric Marlon Bishop... wait, who? Yep, that was Jamie Foxx before he became Jamie Foxx, who unofficially changed his name in order to get more opportunity to move up the pecking order for stand-up comedy shows. According to IMDB, "He won an Academy Award for Best Actor, BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy, for his work in the biographical film Ray (2004)." IMDB continues: "Other prominent acting roles include the title role in the film Django Unchained (2012), the supervillain Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), and William Stacks in the modern version of Annie (2014)."
How did George Clooney get into the acting business? Well, his cousin, Miguel Ferrer, got him a small role in a film. Thereafter, Clooney began to pursue acting. IMDB elaborates: "His first major role was on the sitcom E/R (1984) as "Dr. Doug Ross". More roles soon followed, including "George Burnett", the handsome handyman on The Facts of Life (1979); "Booker Brooks", a supervisor on Roseanne (1988); and "Detective James Falconer" on Sisters (1991)." Of course, Clooney's role in Oceans 11 (and its sequels), remain as some of his most well-known films.
The name's Bond, James Bond. Well, actually it's Craig, Daniel Craig. According to IMDB, "One of the British theatre's most famous faces, Daniel Craig, who waited tables as a struggling teenage actor with the National Youth Theatre, has gone on to star as James Bond in Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), Spectre (2015), and Bond 25 (2020)." The actor has 74 filmography credits, including both TV and feature films, and even made an appearance as a Stormtrooper in The Force Awakens back in 2015.
Scruffy Hugh Jackman
The multi-talented Aussie can sing, act, dance, play instruments and can probably turn water into wine (don't quote us on that one). There's no doubt that combination of his accent and his talent makes him a heartthrob, but where do we stand of the scruffy version of Hugh Jackman? Would you let Wolverine into your house for a dinner party, or make him wait outside to eat the leftovers? This is because he is, of course, "best known for his long-running role as Wolverine in the X-Men film series" (IMDB).
Clean Hugh Jackman
Facial hair, be gone! For better or for worse, well that's simply a matter of opinion. Let's dive into Jackman's back story a little, with the help of IMDB: "Jackman has a communications degree with a journalism major from the University of Technology Sydney. After graduating, he pursued drama at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, immediately after which he was offered a starring role in the ABC-TV drama Correlli (1995), opposite his future [partner] Deborra-Lee Furness." Thereafter came Wolverine and X-Men, and the rest is history.
Robert Pattinson was born in London, England and is most recognisable for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight series. His story is a powerful one, proving that no matter what anyone says, anything is possible: "He never thought about becoming an actor and his drama teacher in school even advised him not to join the drama club because she thought he wasn't made for the creative subjects. But at age 15, he started working backstage at the local drama club called Barnes Theatre Company after his father convinced him to attend because he was quite shy. Later, he auditioned for the play 'Guys and Dolls' and he got his first role as a Cuban dancer with no lines." (IMDB) And we all know what happened after that.
Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Taylor Lautner "quickly developed a love for acting at the age of seven years old when his martial arts instructor, who was involved in show business, encouraged him to audition for a small appearance in a Burger King commercial". IMDB continues: "Once Taylor moved with his family to Los Angeles, he found himself landing more and more small acting roles. He booked many occurring roles on various television shows such as My Wife and Kids (2001), Summerland (2004), and The Bernie Mac Show (2001)."
Long-haired Ashton Kutcher
Long-haired Ashton or short-haired Ashton, that is the question. While Kutcher burst onto the scene by playing Michael Kelso in That '70s Show, he's gone on to star in a number of films and TV shows. Audiences got a real look at the scruffy, long-haired Kutcher when he replaced Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men as Walden Schmidt for a total of 84 episodes. He also played Steve Jobs in Jobs (2013), Adam in No Strings Attached (2011), ad Reed Bennett in Valentine's Day (2010), among a number of other appearances.
Short-haired Ashton Kutcher
Say bye to caveman Ashton, because here we are with clean-cut, sophisticated, suit and tie-wearing Ashton. Do we prefer that, or does the untidy, lazy facade have more appeal? Moving on, aside from his on-screen appearances, Kutcher does a lot of work outside of the spotlight. According to IMBD, "In 2010, Kutcher was named one of Time Magazine's Top 100 Most Influential People." He also created the Demi and Ashton Foundation, which aims to put a halt to a serious issue affecting kids worldwide. He is also co-founder of Katalyst, a social media studio.
When Alex Pettyfer was younger, he played Willy Wonka in his school production of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. He also, according to IMDB, "At age 7, Alex started modeling for Gap's children range. He also appeared in TV commercials for other brands. When he was older, he modeled for Burberry to fund his traveling adventures." Interestingly enough, by the time he established himself in the film industry, he had actually turned down a lead role - Alex was "offered the title role of Eragon in the film Eragon (2006), based on the same titled, best-selling novel by Christopher Paolini, prior to the casting of Ed Speleers. He turned down the part because of his [worry] of flying" - IMDB
As the story goes, "from the age of four, Josh knew that he wanted to be an actor. In order to pursue his goal, Josh and his family moved to Los Angeles when he was nine-years-old." What really put Josh on the map was his performance in Zathura, as IMDB elaborates: "Despite underperforming at the box office, "Zathura" helped earned for Josh his first Young Artist Award for "Leading Young Actor"." A collaboration with Robin Williams in RV (2006), then Bridge to Terabithia (2007) took his career to the next level. Finally, his role as Peeta in The Hunger Games propelled him into stardom.
This actor has bold blue eyes and a rather toned build. He is certainly one of the more popular Aussie actors to make it into the Hollywood scene. His younger brother, Liam, has also been involved in the entertainment industry, also Chris probably takes the take in terms of stardom. According to IMDB, "His first Hollywood appearance was in Star Trek (2009), but it was his titular role in Thor (2011) which propelled him to prominence worldwide. He reprised the character in the science fiction blockbuster The Avengers (2012)."
This US actor has made steady progress over his journey, slowly moving into bigger, more successful roles, and is now a household name. As IMDB describes, "He came to prominence for his small-screen roles, including Bright Abbott in Everwood (2002), Ché in The O.C. (2003), and Andy Dwyer and Parks and Recreation (2009), and notable film roles in Moneyball (2011), The Five-Year Engagement (2012), Zero Dark Thirty (2012), Delivery Man (2013), and Her (2013). In 2014, he broke out as a leading man after headlining two of the year's biggest films: he voiced Emmet Brickowoski, in The Lego Movie (2014), and starred as Peter Quill / Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). In 2015, he headlined the sci-fi thriller Jurassic World (2015)."
IMDB gives us an insight of the journey of Tom Hardy, who most recently starred in Venom (where he was paid a whopping $7 million. "With his breakthrough performance as Eames in Christopher Nolan's sci-fi thriller Inception (2010), English actor Tom Hardy has been brought to the attention of mainstream audiences worldwide. However, the versatile actor has been steadily working on both stage and screen since his television debut in the miniseries Band of Brothers (2001). After being cast in the WW2 drama, Hardy left his studies at the prestigious Drama Centre in London and was subsequently cast as Twombly in Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down (2001) and as the villain Shinzon in Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)."
What an incredible transformation Matthew Lewis has made! The actor, originally from Leeds, England hit the movie scene with his role as the clumsy, unlucky and often laughed-at Neville Longbottom in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Over the next 10 years, he would appear in all of the remaining Harry Potter installments, and as he and his character grew, audiences started to view him differently. After Harry Potter, he has featured in Terminal (2018), Me Before You (2016), The Sweet Shop (2013) and a number of TV series episodes.
