Er, awkward indeed!

Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling may no longer be able to ever look at her beloved, adorable and innocent Neville Longbottom ever again.

The 49-year-old author viewed new, sexy photos of Matthew Lewis, who played the character in all eight movies based on her books and made his debut in the first one at age 11, published in the June 2015 issue of Attitude magazine. One of them shows the 25-year-old actor (who has grown into a hottie, in case you weren't aware) sitting on a chair in a pair of underwear that leaves little to the imagination.

Attitude magazine also features Lewis on the cover, pulling up his tank top to reveal his rock-hard abs. Rowling clinked on a link tweeted by the magazine, which was accompanied by a cropped version of the cover, that led to a full article containing both pics.

". Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close," Rowling said on Twitter on Thursday. "Warn me next time, for God's sake."

Main Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe had appeared naked in Broadway and London productions of the psychological thriller play Equus.

"Well, this is awkward. Sorry, Jo..." Lewis responded, using Rowling's nickname.

".@Mattdavelewis I will always support you whatever you want to do, Matthew," she said. "Now go put some clothes on."

Then, gloriously, Jason Isaacs, who played the evil Lucius Malfoy, got involved.

"Surely Neville Pertbottom now?" he tweeted.

".@jasonsfolly @Mattdavelewis I wouldn't know," Rowling replied. "I hastily averted my eyes and read an article on Political Correctness to get over the shock."
