Harry Potter actor Matthew Lewis is leaving his days as Neville Longbottom behind him one article of clothing at a time. The 25-year-old strips down in the new issue of UK's Attitude magazine and J.K. Rowling was not ready to see all of that.

The author tweeted on Thursday (May 21st,) ".@Mattdavelewis Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God's sake." Matt responded by writing, "Well, this is awkward. Sorry, Jo..." Rowling wrote back, "I will always support you whatever you want to do, Matthew. Now go put some clothes on." Fellow Potter actor Jason Isaacs, who played Lucius Malfoy chimed in to ask, "Surely Neville Pertbottom now?" JK tweeted, "I wouldn't know. I hastily averted my eyes and read an article on Political Correctness to get over the shock."

  • J.K.'s original tweet referred to Daniel Radcliffe's role in the play Equus where he got completely naked on stage.

A major skeleton has been discovered in the closet of the Duggar family of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting. In Touch Weekly and TMZ broke the news on Thursday (May 21st) that 27-year-old Josh Duggar was investigated for sexually molesting five girls starting back in 2002 -- including a few of his own sisters.

TMZ has confirmed the story with law enforcement that Josh was 14 when he was accused of fondling the genitals and breasts of the girls. Some of them were supposedly sleeping when the incidents occurred. According to a police report, it happened again nine months after the original claims which prompted patriarch Jim Bob and church elders decided to send him away to a treatment program. Michelle Duggar revealed that no actual treatment was given and that her son just worked with a guy remodeling homes.

  • Josh responded to the news in a statement which read, "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life."
  • He has also resigned from his position at the Family Research Council.
  • Jim Bob and Michelle also responded to the story saying, "Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives. When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes, and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles every day. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God's kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us -- even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey -- the good times and the difficult times -- cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything."
  • Josh's wife Anna also shared her own statement which read, "I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. I remember feeling that same shock. When my family and I first visited the Duggar home, Josh shared his past teenage mistakes. I was surprised at his openness and humility and at the same time didn't know why he was sharing it. For Josh, he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was -- even very difficult past mistakes. He continued to do what he was taught. I know who Josh really is -- someone who had gone down a wrong path and had humbled himself before God and those whom he had offended. Someone who had received the help needed to change the direction of his life and do what is right."
  • The investigation reportedly kept the family from appearing on an episode of Oprah back in 2006 after someone sent an email to the show to warn them about the allegations.

The reviews are in and former Glee star Dianna Agron fails to impress during her performance in McQueen in London's West End.

The 29-year-old plays a girl named Dahlia who breaks into the home of late fashion designer Alexander McQueen to steal a dress. Broadway World collected reviews from various publications which all seem to be in agreement that her performance falls flat.

  • Michael Billington of The Guardian wrote, "However you choose to define it, the show certainly doesn't offer much in the way of drama...Stephen Wight is also excellent as Lee: outwardly tough and self-assured, inwardly shy and vulnerable. Dianna Agron falls into monotonous vocal rhythms as Dahlia..."
  • Ben Lawrence of The Telegraph explained, "Another issue is Agron...who never manages to elevate her character beyond a clothes-horse spouting psychobabble. She speaks in a strange, sing-song voice throughout, reciting rather than metabolizing her lines..."
  • Holly Williams wrote in The Independent, "Glee star Dianna Agron is not good, I'm afraid. Her delivery is glib yet slow -- I never believe the quick-fire rapport with McQueen, and when they get onto more profound or personal matters, her probing feels painfully crass rather than deep-and-meaningful."

37-year-old Maggie Gyllenhaal is apparently too old to be a love interest for a 55-year-old man. The former Oscar nominee chatted with The Wrap about her experience dealing with sexism and ageism in Hollywood.

She told the website, "There are things that are really disappointing about being an actress in Hollywood that surprise me all the time. I'm 37 and I was told recently I was too old to play the lover of a man who was 55. It was astonishing to me. It made me feel bad, and then it made me feel angry, and then it made me laugh." Maggie did not specify which movie the part was for but she went on to express that she isn't entirely pessimistic about the industry saying, "A lot of actresses are doing incredible work right now, playing real women, complicated women. I don't feel despairing at all. And I'm more looking with hope for something fascinating."

JENNIFER GARNER TREATS HER CHILDREN LIKE REAL KIDS: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck don't want their wealth and movie star status affect their kids' upbringing. Jennifer explained how they maintain normalcy while chatting with Us Weekly earlier this week saying, "We're so involved. I just took a year and a half off of work and I've been home. You treat them like real kids. They have boundaries and they have rules and they throw fits." She continued, "Yesterday, we were at a bike store getting their bikes serviced and getting new helmets that fit and...my littlest one, Samuel, saw something he wanted. I had just said, 'We're not buying anything,' and he threw a fit. The people at the store said to me, 'Please let us just give this to you' because he was so unhappy. And I said, 'I'm sorry that he's throwing a fit in your store and you're so sweet to want to give this to him. And thank you for asking me first. But he's going to have to throw a fit.' I said no. No is no.'" Jenn and Ben are parents to nine-year-old Violet, six-year-old Seraphina, and three-year-old Samuel.

EMMA STONE AND ANDREW GARFIELD WERE NEVER TOTALLY BROKEN UP: Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield's recently rekindled relationship may have never been broken to begin with. Sources tell E! News that their time apart was strictly work-related. An insider revealed, "It was always a 'break' due to schedules. They have been really busy, so they finally have had time to see each other again. They care for each other and always have the best time when together." Emma and Andrew were photographed holding hands while out to dinner in West Hollywood on Wednesday night (May 20th.)

BUZZFEED WRITER ACCUSES 'ONE TREE HILL' ACTOR OF MAKING MISOGYNISTIC COMMENTS TO HER: A Buzzfeed writer named Susan Cheng is accusing One Tree Hill and Mad Men actor Paul Johansson of making misogynistic comments toward her during their interview. She claims he bragged about his tennis skills saying, "My serve is pretty strong. I'll serve that ball right down your throat." Susan also alleges that he said at one point, "I'm sweating like a rapist." Johansson's lawyer responded in a statement arguing that there was nothing sexual or inappropriate implied by his comments and that the rapist comment was taken out of context. Susan defended her initial claims by writing, "After all, it was just the culmination of about three comments from Johansson that would've been inappropriate in an ad agency in the early 1970s, like the one his misogynistic character works at on Mad Men. But this is hardly 1970. It's 2015, and we work at BuzzFeed -- far from the time or place where I would've expected his remarks."

'BACHELORETTE' RESPONDS TO SLUT-SHAMING BACKLASH: Kaitlyn Bristowe has no regrets about what she did during her time on the show despite what the promos for the season may have implied. She explained to E! News, "I just feel like what world are we living in. It's 2015. The Kardashians talk about sex on the show all the time. I think it's just a big deal because it's The Bachelorette and they've never really gone there. It's just been this secret world in the fantasy suite." Kaitlyn continued, "I don't think it was a mistake, the decision I made. I think the timing probably wasn't the best, just because, I mean, there are other relationships developing, but just the timing wasn't the best. What is a relationship without the physical part? To feel chemistry with somebody has a lot to do with being physical. I don't know why that's such a shock to people! I'm like, 'After how many seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette are people going to realize that people are going to make out?' It's a thing."

Aisha Tyler agrees that there should be a woman in late night but she's not interested in the job at the moment.

The comedian recently told E! News, "It's been really flattering that friends and the Internet, and also Slate and Vogue and Esquire -- a lot of people were mentioning me for late night. Honestly, I would love to have that job someday for sure. It's crazy to think a woman couldn't do it and do it successfully. It's madness. Right now I have a podcast called Girl on Guy that's 70 percent male audience and it's raunchy and it's edgy and it's funny. I think it'd translate beautifully into that space. I don't have room for another job right now. My dance card is full. But I'd love to get into that eventually someday." Aisha continued, "And you know what's interesting to me, just completely neutrally as an observer? To me it was such an opportunity to counterprogram late night. Of course it would work. It's about finding the right person. But honestly, when everybody looks the same in late night, and you put up somebody who looks different, you would immediately, immediately just benefit from standing out from the crowd. You wouldn't just bring people who were curious, you'd bring all kinds of people who don't watch late night because they don't see anyone who looks different or appeals to them in a different way. So to me it's like leaving a bag of money in the street, honestly. But we'll see. We'll see. I think somebody's gonna do it. And when they do it, everybody else is gonna be like, 'Why didn't we do that first?'"
