Tom Felton turns a ripe old 26 today — so, yeah, Harry Potter fans, you’re going to be middle-aged soon. That also means it’s been years since he’s had to bleach his hair that awful Draco Malfoy blond. Sorry, some of you were perhaps drawn to that ‘do, in all its evil glory. We can’t really imagine spending our entire adolescence defined by such a distinctive style. (Though there are probably some perks that made up for it.)
It’s a big weekend for vets of the Harry Potter series! Emma Watson’s new movie Perks of Being A Wallflower opened yesterday, and today Tom Felton turns 25! The little toe-headed kids we knew as evil Draco Malfoy has grown up into quite the handsome dude, showing up to red carpet events looking like a walking GQ cover. His latest film The Apparition scared the crap out of us in theaters last August, and it looks like his next movie Night Wolf will definitely do the same. What is it with this guy and freaky flicks, huh? Too many years hanging around with he-who-shall-not-be-named, we guess.
On top of his acting skills, Tom’s also a musician and songwriter. In 2010 he released a collection of original songs called In Good Hands. He’s also flexed his comedy muscle with appearances in Get Him To The Greek and British sketches alongside Justin Bieber, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Keira Knightley among many other famous faces. In honor of his quarter century on the planet, we’ve assembled his 25 most handsome looks of all time. Enjoy!

Everyone knows that the first few days after the holidays can be a real bummer. But these sexy celebs chased away the post-holiday blues by heading to Miami Beach. And we have to say, seeing them strut their stuff in the surf cheered us up, too! Rihanna, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Mischa Barton and even ex-Nsync’er Lance Bass were spotted soaking up the sun, while Jennifer Lopez cruised the harbor in a yacht with her boyfriend Casper Smart. And that’s just the start! Check out the gallery below to see what other stars helped make Miami Beach even hotter!

Given that our first instinct is to slather them with SPF 75 and follow them around with a golf umbrella, it’s probably better that we’re just catching a glimpse of all these celebrity beach vacations, rather than actually being on those trips ourselves. Off the coast of Maui, Ben Stiller opted for paddle boarding this week, while Brooke Burns swam and Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon canoed off the same island. Meanwhile, Marc Jacobs and ex-boyfriend Lorenze Martone lounged on St. Barts, Cuba Gooding Jr. laughed with friends poolside, Tom Felton partied in Miami and Rihanna tweeted her fans from Barbados. Seeing how happy they all are, we guess we can temporarily ignore the potential for celebrity sunburn. Plus, think about how much vitamin D they’re getting right now! So, so much!

Internet, look! Your boyfriend Matthew Lewis is still being sheepish and cute while promoting Harry Potter in Australia today. We’ll sit on the snarky comments we want to make about his shirt because we’re sure the rest of the world finds it precious, and just say this: “Awwwww.”
Tom Felton, who’s hotness is growing on us every time we gaze into his piercing blue eyes, was spotted yesterday at LAX looking all sorts of RPattz wearing a hoodie and carrying a guitar. Across the country, Daniel Radcliffe showed up at The Daily Show with a book and iPod in hand. He then proceeded to be absolutely nerd-dorable while chatting with Jon Stewart about his love for Spongebob Squarepants and the time he fangirled to Amy Poehler‘s face. Watch below.
The Deathly Hallows premiered in New York last night and we couldn’t help but sniff a little looking at all the pictures. Each premiere means we’re inching gradually towards the end. A lot of the tertiary characters didn’t show up for the event but our main squeezes did. After wearing a dreamy Oscar de la Renta to the London premiere, Emma Watson chose a Bottega Veneta gown,Ã‚Â Giuseppe Zanotti platform peep toe heels andÃ‚Â Lorraine Schwartz jewelry for the NYC leg. We’re not totally feeling the look and the harsh make-up, but more on that in our next post. Not much smiling from Emma at this one. She looks like she’s taking this quite emotionally, and we don’t blame her.
Props to Daniel Radcliffe for turning up in Prada as well! Ã‚Â Completely the trio was Rupert Grint who cleaned up quite nicely in his suit as well. He also looked like he had taken a brush to his hair and what a difference that made! Alan Rickman — possibly one of our favorite actors and the only one who could pull off Severus Snape — looked as cool as cool could be. Pulling up the handsome quotient were Tom Felton and Matt Lewis aka Draco Malfoy and Neville Longbottom. Growing up has agreed with these two. A couple of celebrities also turned up for the premiere. Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker brought their son, James Wilkie. (Note to SJP: Stop putting your son in twee hats.) America Ferrera brought new husband Ryan Piers Williams. Sarah Hyland showed up looking lovely in an LBD, and our happy WTF of the day was Jay Manuel! All-in-all, a pretty successful premiere.

It looks like all of that Hermoine/Draco fan fiction you’ve been slaving over for the past ten years was thisclose to playing out in real-life, as Emma Watson’s Tom Felton crush gets revealed in her new Seventeen interview. The Snape/Hagrid stuff…not so much. “He was my first crush,” Watson says about her fellow Hogwarts student. “He totally knows. We talked about it — we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that’s cool.” Sure, Felton laughs about it until Watson’s out of earshot, then weeps with regret under a pile of old Sorting Hats in the prop closet.
The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 actress says her “huge crush” on Felton faded away after the first two Harry Potter films, but Emma Watson’s dating life still has her figuring out how to find the next malevolent wizard of her dreams. “I’m so impatient – It’s one of my worst traits,” Watson says. “If I want to see someone, I want to see them, and if I don’t, then I don’t. My friends are always telling me I have to play hard to get because I’ll pretty much say to a guy, ‘I like you – let’s go hang out.’ But my friends are like, ‘You can’t do that! You have to string this guy along. It’s a nightmare.” Sure, but not so much of a nightmare as realizing that you missed the chance to make the romantic fantasies of millions of fans comes true. Alan Rickman and Robbie Coltrane, there’s still time for you to make it work!

Tom Felton might have just won the Best Villain award at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards for his portrayal of the nefarious Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, but in real life, his personality couldn’t be any sweeter. Our friends over at VH1 News caught up with the burgeoning hunk on the red carpet before last night’s big show and asked him about his old pal from Hogwarts, Cedric Diggory (aka Robert Pattinson). Felton praised his old pal as being “humble” not once but TWICE during our interview with him, and told us how much he was looking forward to catching up with his old chum at such a festive occasion.
Post Secret is a guilty pleasure website for a lot of people who like to know the dirty, anonymous details of other people’s lives. The site rarely offers blind items for celebrity gossip, except in the case of Harry Potter and The Illegitimate Baby, posted last week. An anonymous woman sent the site a postcard with images of all of the main male leads from the Harry Potter films and wrote “One of these men is the father of the most amazing little girl in the world. He’s never met her, he never will. He probably can’t even remember my name.” Subsequently, the entire internet started buzzing about who the father could be (if the post is actually true, and let’s face it, it could be the most genius viral marketing ever).
While the real identity is only shared with the blog’s author and her God, more than a few people suggested that the dad was Tom Felton, a.k.a. Draco Malfoy, the most evil bleached-blond in all of the wizarding world. Felton laughed off the accusation, writing on his Twitter page “my friend just found this on the web! just to confirm that i can be canceled out of this equation lol!” Similarly, twins Jamie and Oliver Phelps have denied that the child will grow up to inherit their ginger locks. Oliver wrote “Apart from making me laugh, I can honestly say it’s 100% not me,” while Jamie said “To clear things up, this isn’t me. Funny, but nothing to do with me.” That leaves Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe, Jason Isaacs and Alan Rickman as the potential dads, and we’re pretty sure that once this kid grows up, it’ll be pretty easy to see a resemblance—these are not men who blend in. Care to venture a guess who it could be?
The premiere of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is exciting for so many reasons. Not only is the the penultimate installment of the beloved series, but it’s also the first time that the entire cast has completely come into their own and grown into adulthood and it’s (hopefully) not creepy for us to say that they’re a really good-looking bunch. The film premiered in New York last night at Alice Tully Hall and the cast and dozens of celebs (and their kids) were in attendance. And in a crowd full of fashion darlings like Sarah Jessica Parker and Lourdes Leon, it’s pretty safe to say the Emma Watson was easily the best dressed of the night in a slinky black number. Hermione Granger has officially gotten a makeover and she looks amazing.
We are seeing the film this week and are proud to say that we have never actually used the word “squee!!” for anything, but right about now we are totally squeeing our pants, We. Are. So. Excited. We can’t wait till Friday to discuss – are any die hard fans out there planning to hit up the midnight showing on Thursday? Let us know! And in the meantime, check out who attended last night’s premiere.
