From Nicholas Hoult To Bow Wow: 15 Actors Who Went From Boys To (Hot) Men

Nicholas Hoult, Bow Wow, Josh Hutcherson, Shia LaBeouf

As we were fanning ourselves while watching Nicholas Hoult play a weirdly hot zombie in Warm Bodies, we had to come to terms with the fact that this strapping young actor was the adorable young-un who helped Hugh Grant get the girl in About a Boy 10 years ago. Wow, we thought, what a pleasant surprise to see these cute child stars make good … and yummy. But really, we shouldn’t be that surprised. As we started combing back through the boy stars of the early 2000s, we discovered a nice number of them had made this transition quite nicely. From big movie names like Daniel Radcliffe and Bow Wow to TV stars like Shia LaBeouf and Zac Efron, these kids are making good — and are now totally legal and not at all creepy to stare at. Enjoy 15 of them in the gallery below:

Saggy Pants Laws: WTF? WTF? WTF?

The campaign to ban low-riding pants hit a snag in Florida yesterday when a state supreme court judge ruled that a law against “saggy pants” in Riviera Beach was unconstitutional, following the overnight arrest of a 17-year-old who dared to show off his underwear. Despite the obvious WTF-ery of this kind of legislation, there are still similar laws on the books in several states, and cities like Dallas and Atlanta have also considered making droopy drawers illegal (it’s a shame The Wire isn’t around to work this into a season).

If the battle over low-riding pants continues to boil over, we should expect to see a concentrated effort on the part of rappers everywhere to fight this madness. In the gallery below, we spotlight some entertainers who should take personal offense at this attempt to give them a legal wedgie.
