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:

Our hearty congrats go out to actors Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell, the latest celebrity couple to get married in secret. The pair tied the knot in front of family and friends in California on Tuesday, Wood’s rep told E! Online. The former True Blood actress, who wore a Carolina Herrera gown, tweeted about it yesterday:
Evan, 25, and Jamie, 26, first met back in 2005, when they starred in a Green Day video together. After dating for a brief time, they broke up and Evan moved on to Marilyn Manson for four years. She reunited with the Billy Elliot star last year. Is it wrong that we can’t wait to see their beautiful, ethereal babies? OK, we’ll just hope for them to make a movie together first. Just look at how sweet they look together:

Say it all together now: At least it’s not Marilyn Manson. Did you say it? You know we can’t hear if you said it or not. You better have said it, because it looks like Evan Rachel Wood and on-again, off-again, possibly-on-again-forever boyfriend Jamie Bell might have just gotten engaged. The two were snapped exiting a bar in Hollywood yesterday accompanied by the giant rock glimmering at the end of Evan’s arm. Wood initially dated the Adventures of Tintin actor in 2005 when the two met on the set of Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends” video; the couple already has tattoos of the other’s first initials. Granted, Evan also has a Marilyn Manson tattoo on her thigh, but that’s over with! We never have to go to that dark place ever, ever again! Congratulations to the happy couple, if the rumors are true!

If you’re struggling to get through your Tuesday afternoon, accept Channing Tatum’s shirtless photos in GQ as your sweaty, ripped gift for making it through the work day. In addition to taking it off for the magazine, Channing discusses his stripper past at greater length. Apparently the actor and his buddy agreed to work it for the bachelorettes together. “Okay, we’re going to do this for a little while just to be crazy and insane; then we’re getting out,” Channing explained. “I had wanted to tell people … I’m not ashamed of it. I don’t regret one thing. I’m not a person who hides s—,” which we hope means we can look forward to a completely pantless pictorial in Tatum’s future.
As if that’s enough naked male camaraderie for you, Tatum joked about having sex with co-star Jamie Bell in an interview with NYMag about their new film The Eagle. “Jamie and I have a bromance. We’ve been having sex for a few years now,” Channing laughed, explaining that it was “going fantastic,” and despite Bell’s small stature, “He’s a goer.” We wouldn’t so much call that a bromance as an actual romance. And we wouldn’t so much call it a romance as the new beautiful image we see when we close our eyes at night.
Evan Rachel Wood is currently on hiatus (whatever that is) from her controversial relationship with Marilyn Manson, but still can’t resist a direct swipe at his ex-wife Dita Von Teese. Lest we forget, Manson was married to glamorous brunette burlesque star Dita, but then swiftly traded her in for blonde teenage actress Evan. Strangely, Evan then dyed her hair brunette, began wearing vampish makeup and dressing in wincingly-tight corset-style dresses. But, according to Evan herself in an interview with British mag Style, the comparisons to Dita couldn’t be further from the truth. “She’s the last person I would want to be like,” she says.
Charming. I’m sure you’re the last person Dita wishes had nicked her look, but hey ho. Just to be absolutely sure that there was no connection, we’ve unearthed a pic of Evan a few years back when she was dating British actor Jamie Bell, and one from this year when she was dating Manson. Yep. There’s definitely no Dita-von-Alike going on there at all. See the real Dita Von Teese after the jump. [Source: Style mag; Photos: Splash News Online]
