Even at a magical school like Hogwarts, geared to teach young wizards and witches how to excel in the supernatural arts, there were rules that were meant to be followed. One of the reasons that it was easy to fall in love with J.K Rowling’s characters is that they were so wholesome and the young actors chosen to play them did a great job bringing them to life. At Hogwarts, the teachers were always respected because not doing so meant having to explain yourself to Dumbledore – which no one really wanted to do. Of course, Harry, Hermione, and Ron often went against the advice of their teachers, but the context was adventure, not just their desire to misbehave.
But school only lasts for so long and with the final movie now six years (yes, it’s been that long) behind us, the cast of the film have all moved on. They are all grown up now and are taking on the world in their own ways – but do you think that Dumbledore would be proud of their choices? Would he take exception to some of their latest work? What would he think of the skimpy outfits, some of them have been wearing? Here are 15 cast photos we think Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry would find unacceptable…
15 Bonnie Has All The “Wright” Stuff
Whoa – hold the phone – is that really little Ginny Weasley? Believe it or not, this is the same mousy little girl that played Ron’s sister and she has blossomed into a drop-dead beauty. But would Hogwarts approve of this skimpy outfit? We think not!
Bonnie Wright hasn’t been sitting on her hands since the Harry Potter films wrapped; she’s been busy carving out a neat little niche for herself as a model and believe it or not, a producer. Not only has she added a number of film credits to her resume since she played Ginny, but she’s also signed with Next Models and appeared as a runway model at the London Fashion Week. But she’s not just a pretty face, Bonnie is also interested in the technical aspects of filmmaking and is the owner of her own production company called Bon Bon Lumiere.
14 The Problem With Being The Most Famous Boy Wizard
At one stage people wondered whether or not Daniel Radcliffe would ever be able to move on from his role as Harry Potter. After all, it can be difficult for a young actor to break away from such an iconic casting but Daniel Radcliffe has pleasantly surprised us all with incredible adult performances in movies such as Imperium. But that’s not to say that he hasn’t had a few ups and downs between then and now. Fame can be quite a burden to bear and at the height of Harry Potter fever, Daniel was spotted looking drawn, hungover, and sometimes even drunk, more than once. But he seems to have cleaned up his act and now looks set for a future that Hogwarts would be proud of.
13 Emma Watson Showing Off Her Legs
Have you watched the 2013 film Bling Ring yet? If not then this picture of a smoking hot Emma Watson wearing tiny shorts and sexy heels might be enough to inspire you to check out the film. The movie is based on a real life crime story involving a group of teenagers and young adults known as The Bling Ring AKA the Hollywood Hills Burglars who burgled the homes of several celebrities (including Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Lindsay Lohan) between 2008 and 2010 and stole approximately $3 million dollars’ worth of belongings and cash. The ensemble cast included Emma Watson as well as Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga, and Claire Julien. All we have to say is this – Emma would have been in a lot of trouble if she arrived at Hogwarts looking like this!
12 Posing For Hef Would Definitely Be Against The Rules
Do you remember Scarlett Byrne from the Harry Potter movies? She played the minor role of Pansy Parkinson in the sixth, seventh, and final film but most of us recall her from the fourth season of the sci-fi show Falling Skies. So what has this hottie been up to since her Hogwarts days? Well, quite a lot actually. She appeared in a few films, including Lake Placid: The Final Chapter and in 2015 she joined The Vampire Diaries as a witch-vampire hybrid called Nora Hildegard.
But it was her Playboy photo shoot in the March 2017 edition that really got her noticed and for good reason – she’s grown up to be smoking hot! But posing nude seems very naughty for a Harry Potter girl – we wonder what JK Rowling had to say about this?
11 Helena Bonham Carter Wasn’t Drinking Pumpkin Juice
We’ve all had crazy nights that left us looking a little like this…
Helena Bonham Carter was the perfect choice for the role of the terrifying Bellatrix Lestrange in the last four Harry Potter movies but we don’t think it was magic battles that left her looking like this. This embarrassing photo of the eccentric actress was captured as she left the BAFTA TV awards in 2014 and we can safely say that it wasn’t pumpkin juice that she was drinking that night. But even witches need to blow off a little steam sometimes and it’s a good thing that she had someone to drive her home because she was definitely in no position to be operating a broom. But Helena seems to take it all in her stride doesn’t she?
10 We Know Dumbledore Would Disapprove Of Jamie Waylett’s Life Choices
You’d think that having a budding movie career would be exciting enough, but that certainly wasn’t the case for young Jamie Waylett.
This British actor is known for his role as the Hogwarts bully, Vincent Crabbe, but his passion for crime and reckless behavior seemed to have ruined his career forever. Jamie was arrested in October 2011 for his part in the 2011 England riots after this photo, showing him carrying a Molotov cocktail, surfaced. He was charged with violent disorder and looting and when police raided his home they also found a stash of cannabis plants. In 2012 he was sentenced to two years in prison for his various crimes. Since then there’s been almost no word from him so hopefully, he’s cleaned up his act.
9 Verne Troyer Has Finally Admitted He Has A Problem
Most of us remember Verne from his most famous role as Mini-Me in the Austin Powers movies, but he also appeared in the very first Harry Potter movie as Griphook; a goblin employee at the Gringotts Wizarding Bank. But years of hard partying and fast living seem to have taken a toll on him and over the last few years, it’s controversy that’s kept his name in the headlines – not his work. In 2008 he was embroiled in a sex tape scandal and he’s been caught on film a number of times looking drunk and washed-out.
But he’s finally admitted that he has a problem and in April 2017 he announced to his fans on Facebook that he was undergoing treatment for alcohol addiction so hopefully behavior such as this will soon be a thing of the past for Verne.
8 Is This Really Luna Lovegood?
Okay, we know it looks steamy, but Evanna Lynch (who played the role of the kooky Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter) insists that these nude photo’s of her are fakes although some people aren’t so convinced. It really does look like her so we’ll leave it up to you to decide.
After doing a little research about this young actress we don’t believe that she would do something as sleazy as this. She’s used her celebrity to help promote healthy self-esteem and talk about her own struggle with an eating disorder, so we think it’s unlikely that such a wholesome person would need to strip down to gain more fans. But make no mistake – she has certainly grown up to be a beautiful young woman and we’re sure to see more of her in the future – just not like this.
7 Robert Pattinson Started Out So Well And Then…
While some Harry Potter stars used the recognition they earned from the movies to forge successful acting careers, others seemed to fizzle and one of the prime examples is Robert Pattinson. Now that’s not to say he hasn’t been successful – at one stage he was considered to be one of the highest paid and most bankable actors in Hollywood and was even featured in TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World, but since then his career seems to be on a steady decline. Photographs like this, of course, don’t help matters – this doesn’t look like someone you’d want to cast in a movie, is it? His career got off to such an incredible start when he played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, let’s hope he can still make something of it.
6 What Would Dumbledore Say If He Saw Ron Like This?
Getting a good night’s sleep is essential for a developing witch or wizard because it’s going to be pretty hard to fight off the dark forces if you’re not well rested. That’s why we think Hogwarts would definitely not put their stamp of approval on this candid picture of Rupert Grint. The photo shows him after he emerged from a London hotel room after what looks like a heavy night of indulgence. He looks pale, with dark rings around his eyes and just plain exhausted, so you have to ask yourself – what has he been getting up to? The answer is – not a lot. While Rupert’s co-stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe have managed to take their careers to the next level, his seems to have stalled. No wonder he looks worse for wear.
5 Emma Watson Is All Grown Up
Throughout their adventures at Hogwarts, Hermione was always the one keeping her friends out of trouble, but now that Emma Watson is all grown up – and all filled out – she looks like she could be getting men into trouble instead!
Emma has come a long since her days at Hogwarts and her career looks set to continue to skyrocket. It’s hard to believe that before she landed her breakout role, which made her a household name almost overnight, her only previous acting experience was in school plays. Critics were so impressed with her performance in Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone that they said she “stole the show” and Watson was nominated for five awards for her portrayal of Hermione and won the Young Artist Award for Leading Young Actress.
4 Sorry Ladies, Matthew Lewis Is Taken
Matthew Lewis started his acting career at the age of five, but his breakout role came at the age of 11 when he landed the part of the bumbling Neville Longbottom – a part that he played throughout all eight of the Harry Potter movies. He was quite a funny looking character, but looking at him now you wouldn’t even say that it’s the same person. When he appeared on the cover of the June 2015 issue of Attitude everyone was blown away by his transformation and couldn’t stop looking at his tight body and heavenly abs.
But the sad news for his legions of swooning fans is that this hottie is officially off the market. In late 2016 Matthew announced his engagement to his long-time girlfriend Angela Jones.
3 Devon Murray Should Have Got Detention For These Pics
Devon Murray is best known for his role as Gryffindor wizard Seamus Finnigan and he appeared in all eight of the Harry Potter films. As you can imagine he earned some pretty good money from this, but a fast paced party lifestyle seems to have eaten up his small fortune. A few years ago his mother claimed that Devon had spent a large chunk of his million dollar fortune on parties, cars, and girls and we can't say we're surprised. This is the same boy who was caught on film smoking on the set when he was just 11. When asked why she didn’t try and guide him in a better direction she said, “He was a teenage boy. He went drinking. He went out with girls. He bought cars. I only have one child. I wasn’t going to give out to him over that”.
2 Would Hogwarts Frown On Daniel's Nude Scene?
Believe it or not, Daniel Radcliffe’s parents originally turned down the role of Harry Potter on his behalf as they were told that the contract would involve six films shot in Los Angeles. It was then that Warner Bros. stepped in and offered him a two-movie contract instead, with the filming to be done in the UK. Part of the reason for this was because JK Rowling was convinced that he would make the perfect Harry and praised producer David Heyman for finding him, saying, "I don't think Chris Columbus could have found a better Harry”.
Daniel began to branch out to stage acting at the age of 17 and one of the first productions he starred in was Peter Shaffer's play Equus where he played the lead role of Alan Strang – a stable boy obsessed with horses. The role generated huge media interest because of the nude scene – something we’re sure Hogwarts would not approve of!
1 Is That A Cigarette Natalia Tena?
Natalia Tena is known for playing offbeat characters and is best known for her role in the Harry Potter franchise as Nymphadora Tonks and the wildling Osha in the HBO series Game of Thrones. So to see her smoking a cigarette really shouldn’t surprise us – her characters are not known for following the rules. At least we hope it’s a cigarette – it does look a little suspicious, doesn’t it?
You may not know this, but Natalia is also a musician and the lead singer and accordionist of a band called Molotov Jukebox who released their debut album Carnival Flower in spring of 2014. She’s also been cast to play Sara Morten in CBS' upcoming drama Wisdom Of The Crowd which is set to air in October this year, so watch out for that.
