Matthew Lewis Had a Crush on Emma Watson While Filming 'Harry Potter'

Matthew Lewis says a lot of behind-the-scenes crushing happened while he and his co-stars were filming the Harry Potter movies!

The actor, who portrayed Neville Longbottom in the films, admits that he personally had a longtime crush on Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger.

“I probably had a crush on Emma for a couple of years, until I was 13 or 14 something like that,” he told Seventeen. “I mean nothing ever came of it, anyway. It never went anywhere.”

He says it’s not awkward, though, and they totally laugh about it now.

“She knows about that,” Matthew added. “It’s not something we’ve not talked about or anything.”

“Effectively for us, it was like being in school,” he explained. “We started tutoring on set and we were on set all the time, so I think that everyone had crushes on everyone else at some point.”

“There was always Valentine’s Day everyone would write secret Valentine’s cards to different people,” Matthew shared. “I think on the second [film] there was like love notes and love letters flying around… It was just exactly what you would imagine you would get in any high school, just we happen to be in a film studio.”

You guys, Neville and Hermione!
