    We're not sure when, why or how we became so obsessed interested in seeing child stars grow up (ahem, Neville Longbottom), but it happened, and we've accepted it. 


    Today, we're here to show you what the kid who played Dudley Dursley (real name Harry Melling) in the "Harry Potter" franchise looks like now. Like his co-stars before him, Melling has gone through quite the physical transformation. 


    For reference, here's a photo of him at the "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" premiere back in 2004: 



    And now, get ready for it, here's what he looks like now (well, in 2014): 





    And here is he back in 2013:



    The now 26-year-old continues to pursue his acting career, and according to his IMDb page he's appeared in a few TV movies and short films. He also wrote and starred in his very own play, "Peddling," in 2014 and 2015. You can watch a video of him performing a monologue from the play in the video below: 




     In March, the actor spoke to The Economist about his "Harry Potter" co-stars, saying:



    I'm very happy they're doing what they're doing but I wouldn't compare myself to them. I don't feel jealousy or anything like that really, because they're just different situations. I'm not one of "the three," so I'm not going to be in that position, but equally, that allows me to get on the Tube. The thing with [having played] Dudley is that you get a call every now and again going, "We're looking for a really fat, rattish guy." And then my agent has to go, "Oh no, sorry, he's changed."



    He seems to be quite content doing what he's doing. Good for him!

    Kylie Jenner's latest product promotion is for the company PureLeef, which manufactures serums that can apparently enhance a woman's curves naturally. 


    The 17-year-old posted a photo on Instagram Thursday of herself holding a bottle of the PureLeef Breast Plumping Lotion, writing beside the image that she's a user and swears by the results she's seen. In the split shot, Jenner's chest and derriere are showcased as proof. 



    PureLeef describes its process on their website: "We target women of different ethnicities with natural products to help safely enhance or slim their bodies into shape and keeping the curves you desire. PureLeef can be used on men as well. PureLeef is a company that surveyed and partnered with several chemists and doctors to create products that safely gives you the body that people pay thousands of dollars to create."


    A 40-ounce jar of the Butt and Body Pluming Cream sells for $47 (and has a four-star review on Amazon), while the Breast Plumping Lotion goes for $49. 


    This is the latest product the reality star has attached her name to in recent months. In March, she became the brand ambassador for Nip + Fab's anti-wrinkle cream. Because, you know, it's all about prevention. 


    Jenner will be revealing more of her beauty secrets on her own website, KylieJenner.com, set to launch in the near future.

    We don't know about you, but we think mimes are pretty creepy. Sure, they're supposed to be funny, but something about their painted faces has always rubbed us the wrong way. 


    Blake Lively, on the other hand, thinks being a mime is the "#BestJobEver." 


    The actress shared a snap of her, a friend and two mimes posing on the street in Spain. She's standing in the middle, looking great as always in a little black dress, while the mimes are on the outside striking typical hands-up, surprised-face poses. 



    A photo posted by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on



    The "Age of Adaline" star captioned the fun pic, "Who's the class clown now suckers?!?!?!! Oh... Still me. Hmm. Mmk. Nevermind #BestJobEver #CanCirqueDuSoleilPleaseSeeThisAndInviteMeToJoinPLEASE #YesIKnowTheyreMimes." 


    The mother of one also shared a photo of herself right before getting down in dirty in a massive tomato fight (La Tomatina, perhaps?). She looks terrified:



    Before.... #YesDummyHasHerPhoneInHerPocket

    A photo posted by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on



    Lively is currently in Spain shooting her new film "All I See Is You," which is set to be released in 2016.

    Nicki Minaj put her ex-boyfriend on blast after he claimed he ghostwrote some of the lyrics off her "Pinkprint" album. 


    In his new song "Lifeline," her ex Safaree Samuels raps: "This n****r bent outta shape with a gorilla face / My bars on The Pinkprint no one will ever match / My dick print, little n****r, you can never match."


    In an uncensored video (below) of her performance in Toronto on Tuesday, Minaj made it clear she writes her own lyrics while talking to the crowd from the stage. 


    "'Til this day, I never stopped," she said. "See a bitch ass n****r can't write my raps. You know why? You don't have the heart, or the mind frame, or the motherf**king intellect, bitch n****r. Don't even know how [to] pronounce these motherf**king words in my motherf**king rap, bitch."


    Samuels' only credit on "The Pinkprint" is for Artists & Repertoire, or talent scouting and artist development. 




    For his part, Samuels maintained he wrote the raps when he ran into TMZ at LAX, and said he isn't keeping quiet anymore. 


    Songs on "The Pinkprint" give fans insight into Minaj's personal life and the emotions that came with the end of her 11-year relationship. "Bed of Lies" is apparently about Samuels


    "One of my goals was to give people a glimpse into my personal life, because it's something I've kept very private," she told Rolling Stone last year. "I had to learn to do something as simple as sleep alone. I struggled with, 'Do I express these feelings?' And I decided there's no reason for me to hide. I'm a vulnerable woman, and I'm proud of that."

    When Ryan Seacrest, the “busiest man in Hollywood,” touches something in the entertainment world, it usually turns to gold. But it seems the “American Idol” host, radio personality and producer of such mega-hits like “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and the Emmy Award-winning “Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution” missed the mark this time.


    The new Seacrest-hosted reality TV show “Knock Knock Live” was pulled by Fox after just two episodes, Variety.com reports. The reason? The show earned abysmal ratings. The series “averaged a 0.6 rating and 1.75 million viewers, one of Fox's lowest series debuts ever,” per The Hollywood Reporter.


    “Knock Knock Live” -- a program which involved celebrities such as David Beckham and Justin Bieber surprising regular folk at their homes with prizes -- will be replaced with comedy repeats. Viewers can expect to see encores of “The Last Man on Earth” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” in the Tuesday 9 p.m. timeslot. 


    “Knock Knock Live” was produced by Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment and Dick Clark Productions. Seacrest served as executive producer.

    Roastmaster Donald Trump is burning anyone within a 100-mile radius of the 2016 presidential race. It's just too bad we can't hear the slanderous silliness that might have spewed from his never-dormant mouth in presidential elections of yesteryear ... until now!


    This video depicts how Trump would hypothetically smack-talk Washington, Lincoln, and all of those old, bearded white guys. Not even Millard Fillmore is safe.


    And for those ready to write in and inform us the U.S. has technically had just 43 presidents, to you, we say: Grover Cleveland came back, but much like Mase, he was a completely different person when he returned. So we count him twice.

    At first glance, Chris Pratt seems to have it all. A wildly successful career. A charming family. The adoration of millions. But there's one thing the 36-year-old actor still needs to solidify his A-List status: A well-designed Facebook page.


    Last night, Pratt invited "friends and fans" to a enter a contest to design his new Facebook header. The winning photo will become Pratt's official header, and its designer will receive "accolades plus maybe a free dinner at Applebee's or something like that."



    Hello friends and fans. I am in the market for a new header for my FB page. I want to do a contest. Whoever replies with...

    Posted by Chris Pratt on Friday, July 31, 2015

    Pratt specified that he wants four of his favorite characters included in the design: Peter Quill ("Guardians of the Galaxy"), Owen ("Jurassic World"), Andy ("Parks and Recreation") and Emmet ("The Lego Movie"). Besides that, entrants can include anything their hearts desire, from "largemouth bass" to "cool guns or rollerblades."


    Good luck, and may the best Photoshopper win.

    You can try to suppress your inner sissy. You can deepen your voice, straighten your wrist and hide your bangles and baubles at the back of the closet. You can invent rules and punishments to try to scare your inner sissy into submission -- that 's what Philip Dawkins, my guest this week on the podcast The Sewers of Paris, did. You can even claim masc 4 masc on your profile. But you just can't keep a good sissy down. As Philip learned, your inner sissy is going to come out, so you might as well give in.



    Who are your favorite sissies from movies, TV and literature? I posed the question to my friends and was delighted by the response.

    Back in the early days of film, it was harder for sissies to be overt. Here's Howard Everett Horton, who appears dismayed by female attention but intrigued by a waiter with scones:



    But other sissies were unmistakable even in those heavily closeted times. Franklin Pangborn never seemed to hold back:



    There's also the unforgivably under-appreciated Frank Nelson, who might not have been gay, exactly, but he certainly flitted around in his scenes with Jack Benny.



    And here's Dr. Pretorious in Bride of Frankenstein, oozing with sinister science, a sort of mad version of All About Eve's George Sanders:



    Pink-hued Snagglepuss seems to have had a delicate affect, although so far, no confirmed lovers have come forward.



    Of course, there's a rich vein of sissies in The Boys in the Band. Harold is terrifying, but Emery's fey mincing is a sheer delight. And then his fangs come out:



    For a whole army of sissies, take a look at the end of Blazing Saddles, when a western brawl literally breaks the fourth wall into a bunch of "sissy maries" doing "The French Mistake" -- a strange throwback to the early days when sissies had to butch it up when the cameras rolled.



    Personally, I'm partial to Hollywood Montrose in Mannequin. "I never thought they'd hire anyone stranger than me," he purrs. At the climax of the film, he hoses down an army of security guards, proudly declaring that his favorite things are fighting and kissing boys.



    Philip, my "Sewers of Paris" guest, adored Hank Azaria as Agador Spartacus in The Birdcage. It's a controversial depiction, since the actor is straight and he's way over the top. But as it turns out, he was all too aware of how fraught his portrayal might be -- and he agonized over it:



    But even more controversial is Jack McFarland from Will and Grace. He's about as flouncy as they come, and a lot of gay men found a touch of homophobia in Sean Hayes' performance, particularly since he wasn't publicly out at the time. Was Jack an offensive clown, or a wry trickster?



    But sissies are more than just entertaining -- they can also be life-changing. When I was a nervous queer kid in the suburbs, afraid of my own capacity for mincing, I was desperate for a knight in sparkling armor to rescue me. I needed someone to show me that it's OK to lift your pinky, it's safe to swish. That knight was Steven Stucker, who you probably know as Johnny from Airplane. But if you're looking for a deeper cut, you can catch him in a courtroom scene in Kentucky Fried Movie, where he plays a hysterical stenographer. Even though his appearances were brief, they were a revelation to me. Here was a man who could be funny and confident and unafraid even as his loafers lighten to the point that he's almost walking on the ceiling. At that time, I thought there was nothing worse than a man who isn't masculine. But it was as if Stephen's characters were looking right at me, saying, hey, it's all right kid. Go ahead. Stop holding back. It's so much fun to be a sissy.



    But for my favorite Stucker appearance, check out his 1985 appearance on Donahue -- it's on YouTube -- where he talks calmly and honestly about living with AIDS, even as a live audience boos him. Being an effeminate openly gay man in those days was scary enough, but to go on national TV before a hostile audience and tell people that AIDS isn't a death sentence must have taken more courage than most of us can even dream of. In his appearance, Stephen is upbeat and energetic, and as always funny -- "Don't I look fabulous?" he demands. Stephen was fearlessly effete at a time when that was considered shameful, and open about his health when the country was gripped by fear.



    When he was in Airplane, he was what I needed to see. When he was on Donahue, he was what the country needed to see.

    Society has a tendency to heap shame on the sissy, deriding him as weak or faint of heart. He even faces rejection from other gay men who demand "no femmes." But sissies are brave. They're defiant. And sometimes, they're even heroes.

    Reps for Simpson and Ross did not immediately respond to request for comment. 


    Congrats to the happy couple!

    It's Harry Potter's birthday, and you know what that means: time to get riddikulus.


    It's hard to believe, but the boy wizard, who was born July 31, 1980, is turning 35 this year. Perhaps even harder to believe is that we still don't know everything about him. Though Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came out in 2007, author J.K. Rowling is still revealing secrets we had no idea about. 


    Rowling actually shares a bday with Potter, so you know they'll be turning up, and you can celebrate too with these crazy "Harry Potter" secrets Rowling has revealed over the years through interviews and fan questions:


    1. Harry Potter and Voldemort are related.




    Image: Giphy 


    Looks like Harry has some family after all! Holidays are going to be awkward.


    Rowling has confirmed Harry and Voldemort are related through the Peverells, the dudes who inspired "The Tale of the Three Brothers" from The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Though many wizarding families are related if you trace it back far enough.


     


    2. Wizard kids are homeschooled before Hogwarts.




    Image: Giphy


    Well, they should probably learn math at some point, right? 


    When Rowling was asked where wizard kids go to school before Hogwarts, she said, "Most are homeschooled, because they aren't really able to control their powers, so it would be too dangerous to let them out and about," reports Time. 


     


    3. Ginny became a professional Quidditch player.




    Image: Giphy


    After Deathly Hallows, Ginny went on to be a professional Quidditch player and later reported on the sport for The Daily Prophet, because the girl has skills.





     


    4.  Hermione got her parents back.




    Image: Giphy


    A lot of people think Hermione lost her parents for good after she altered their memories for their own protection, but that's just because we're all ignorant muggles. Rowling says Hermione got her parents back "straight away."


     


    5. Slytherin isn't so evil anymore.




    Image: Giphy


    Albus Severus still doesn't want to go there, but Slytherin has been "diluted" after Voldemort's downfall. Sorry, Malfoy. That's a bummer.


     


    6. Harry's son stole the Marauder's Map from him.




    Image: Giphy


    Rowling solemnly swears Harry's son James is up to no good, and pilfered the map from his dad's desk.


    Mischief managed, bruh.


    7. Harry lost the ability to speak Parseltongue.




    Image: Giphy


    Rowling says Potter loses the ability now that he's no longer a Horcrux, and he's "very glad to do so."


     


    8. Voldemort's boggart is his own corpse.




    Image: Giphy


    In Harry Potter, a boggart is a shape-shifting thing that takes the form of your worst fear, and Rowling says Voldemort's worst fear was death, so the boggart would be his own dead body. 


    Really, it probably should've just been a mirror. (Ouch! Can someone get He Who Must Not Be Named some sunscreen? Dude just got burned.)


     


    9. Dumbledore's Army kept their coins.




    Image: HarryPotter.wikia


    Rowling says the DA saved the coins, which are now "like badges or medals of honor," but our guess is if these kids went on to wizarding college, the coins probably got traded for some late-night libations.


    Neville probably knows what we're talking about.




    Image: HarryPotter.wikia


    Wow. I remember my first butterbeer ...


     


    10. Most of the characters found love.




    Image: Giphy


    The characters found love in a Hogwarts place. Draco Malfoy marries Astoria Greengrass, George Weasley marries Angelina Johnson, Neville Longbottom marries Hannah Abbott and Luna Lovegood marries Rolf Scamander, the grandson of the guy who wrote Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.


     


    11. Harry ended up with the flying motorbike.




    Image: HarryPotter.wikia


    Mr. Weasley fixed it and then gave it to Harry, because he has such a great track record with flying vehicles. 




    Wait, never mind.


     


    12. Harry Potter's scar was lightning-shaped because it's cool.




    Image: Giphy


    When asked about the lightning shape of Harry's scar, Rowling said, "To be honest, because it’'s a cool shape. I couldn’'t have my hero sport a doughnut-shaped scar."


    Yup. Harry's scar just looks that way because it's cool. Whether or not you believe in magic, there's no denying the boy who lived has swag.

    Happy birthday, Harry Potter!

    "Paper Towns" author John Green took to Medium to defend Cara Delevingne over a sexist morning show interview.


    Delevingne made headlines earlier in the week after a cringeworthy interview with "Good Day Sacramento" to promote her new film based on Green's 2008 novel. The hosts called her by the wrong name, commented that maybe she needed "a little nap" and asked her "if " she read the book.  


    In his blog post, Green said that Delevingne was asked this same question about reading "again and again" while they were on the press tour together for more than a month. The movie's male star, Nat Wolff, "was almost always asked when he’d read the book, while Cara was almost always asked if she’d read it." (Something Zach Braff also noticed.) Wolff was also asked about whether his female co-stars were good kissers. 


    The process of promotion can become repetitive and dehumanizing, and Green admitted to surrendering to interview questions like, "Who is your miracle?" ("At first, I tried to fight it, tried to argue that we must see people as people, that we must learn to imagine them complexly instead of idealizing them, that the romantic male gaze is limiting and destructive to women. That’s the whole point of the story to me.") Eventually, he just said, "My wife."  


    He credits Delevingne with breaking the mold. 



    Cara, however, refuses to stick to the script. She refuses to indulge lazy questions and refuses to turn herself into an automaton to get through long days of junketry. I don’t find that behavior entitled or haughty. I find it admirable. Cara Delevingne doesn’t exist to feed your narrative or your news feed  --  and that’s precisely why she’s so fucking interesting.



    Delevingne posted this excerpt on Twitter, before realizing Green was the one who wrote it. 





    She also stood up for herself.

    The Kardashian and Jenner sisters have been supportive of Caitlyn Jenner's transition, but it's still an adjustment for everyone. While the 65-year-old officially introduced herself as Caitlyn to the world in June, Khloe Kardashian says she and her sisters have yet to make the jump themselves to calling the former Olympian by her chosen name. 


     "We don't like to say that Bruce is gone, per se. We, my sisters and I, we will call Caitlyn 'Bruce,' and we've been told that's completely fine," Kardashian said during an appearance on "The Project" while in Australia promoting the Kardashian Kids clothing line on Thursday. 


    The 31-year-old explained that her stepparent told her and her sisters they were allowed to call her any name they wanted. 


    "Because on the phone, when she calls me, it's the same voice as Bruce. And if I'm not physically with her, it's hard to remember in the moment that I'm talking to Caitlyn, if that makes sense," she said.


    If Jenner gave permission to her family to call her by any name, that's her choice, but it's important for others to realize that transgender individuals have chosen new names to reflect their true identities. There's a reason Jenner's docuseries is called "I Am Cait." It's a declarative statement, not a suggestion. 


    It's also interesting that Kardashian would mention Jenner's voice since it seems to be a source of  insecurity for the star. In a new clip from an upcoming episode of her show,  Jenner attempts her "best feminine voice" in front of stepdaughter Kim Kardashian, who seems oblivious to how hurtful it was when she told Jenner her attempt wasn't successful. 


     "Women cannot relate to the whole voice thing," Jenner said in the clip. "They don't see it as being that important when it is that important, not only for you just to speak and order and do all that kind of stuff, but very important for your soul that you're feeling good about that." 


    Still, you can't entirely fault Kim for being being oblivious, since it's a learning process for the family. As Khloe told the hosts of "The Project," "There was a hard time for the entire family, that we were all transitioning with her, but in front of an audience. That's not really the normal way to go about it."


    She added, "There is a lot of raw emotions, that it's hard to do in front of a camera. For us, we were trying to be really open and raw with it, I think. We all got through it and that's completely over, it's all behind us now. So, we are just happy for her. We just want her to be happy. But there was definitely a moment that was really tough for all of us."

    Well a happy Friday to us all! One Direction has released a new single AND given fans the glorious gift of a hilarious fan interaction video -- and it's a little challenging to decide which one we're more excited about. 


    Since they weren't sure they'd thrown Directioners for enough loops recently (JK, we're pretty sure we've had enough with Zayn's sudden departure from the group and news of Louis fathering a child), they decided to surprise fans once more, dropping their newest single called "Drag Me Down" very early Friday morning.









    The new track is the boy band's first release since the beloved Zayn Malik left the group back in April. Fans are evidently pretty pleased with the song, seeing as it's already jumped to #1 on U.S. iTunes charts, according to MTV, as well as Billboard's Trending 140.





    In other 1D breaking news, they showed off some pretty laughable (though endearing!) dancing skills in a meet and greet this week. Backstage at a Kansas City, MO concert, Harry, Niall, Louis and Liam received a few pointers from a young fan named Gavin on how to properly execute the hottest dance trends of the moment, the Whip and Nae Nae


    The boys of 1D seemed to be fairly out of touch with the dances, hence Gavin's stepping in to help them out. The impromtu dance lesson was documented by Gavin's sister, Hannah, who was his date to the concert. Hannah later posted the videos to Twitter, adding that she and Gavin had been given the chance to meet the boys as a gift from the Make-A-Wish foundation. 








    The ever-charming Niall later posted a tweet about dancing with Gavin, which prompted an equally sweet video response from the young fan, which Hannah again uploaded to her Twitter.








    The boys of 1D are showered with the word "amazing" on a daily basis -- but the question today is whether they're earning it more for their latest single, or for their newfound dance skills.

    Drea de Matteo is heading down the aisle!


    Boyfriend Michael Devin, bassist for the band Whitesnake, popped the question to the "Sopranos" actress during a concert in Atlantic City on July 25. 


    "I fell in love with a very beautiful woman a few years ago and I want to embarrass her as much as I can," he said. "And I would like to invite her up right now."


    De Matteo then joined her beau on stage along with her two kids, daughter Alabama and son Waylon from a previous relationship with singer-songwriter Shooter Jennings. A concertgoer captured the moment and posted the video to YouTube, which you can watch above.

    "I have two questions for you: One, will you make sweet, passionate love to me for the rest of my life?" Devin asked. (Here's to hoping her kids somehow didn't pick up on that part!)


    The actress replied, "Forevermore," a reference to Whitesnake's 2011 album


    "And two," Devin continued, "Will you marry me, please?"


    Before responding to his second question, de Matteo sweetly asked him, "Will you love my children forevermore?"


    Devin said "yes!" and thus the deal was sealed. 


    Then the "Sons of Anarchy" actress dropped a celebratory F-bomb, but hey, that's rock 'n' roll for ya!

    Congratulations go out to these badass lovebirds!

    With so many niche holidays -- at least one for every day on the calendar -- it can be difficult to remember exactly what to celebrate. Luckily, how you should celebrate is never in question: a commemorative Instagram photo.


    Lena Dunham celebrated "National Mutt Day" in style on Friday, posting a topless photo of herself with her adorable dog, Lamby.

    Lamby was the principal subject of Dunham's 2013 essay "A Box of Puppies," which was published in The New Yorker. In the piece, the "Girls" star celebrated her beloved puppy, writing, "He’s a mutt, it’s true, but if you told me he was Marie Antoinette’s breed of choice I’d believe you: a golden sausage with the most human eyes I’ve ever seen on a non-human."


    Happy Mutt Day, Lamby!

    Social media is killing rap beef. Callouts that might have been refined and organized into calculated disses are now being carelessly dropped on cyberspace with less consideration than a Craigslist post for a used panini.


    It's been a busy week for the newfound Drake-Meek Mill rivalry. Long story Too $hort, Meek Mill called out Drake for having a ghostwriter. Instead of responding via Twitter, Drake did things the old-fashioned way: He recorded a track about Meek Mill. With his mouth. Into a mic. Because that's what rappers are supposed to do.


    See the full recap here.


    Meek Mill's trolling makes one wonder what it might have been like had Twitter existed during the Tupac and Notorious B.I.G era. Would they have pushed each other to create amazing art? Would things have gotten so violent? Would Taylor Swift have injected herself into the feud?

    If you’re of a certain age — an age whose childhood, and even early adulthood, didn’t involve cell phones or wireless internet — chances are you remember what it was like to watch Tom Cruise and realize, in whatever simple and clear manner, that you were observing greatness.

    The state of and interest in boxing looks a lot different today from when the first "Rocky" film hit theaters in 1976.

    Nevertheless, Michael B. Jordan hopes his new film "Creed," in which he plays the son of the Italian Stallion's former foe Apollo Creed, will give the sport a shot in the arm.


    "The film will hopefully help inspire this next generation of boxers and athletes," the actor told The Huffington Post at DICK's Sporting Goods Sports Matter panel at NASDAQ MarketSite in New York on Tuesday. "Instead of going into MMA and doing all those kind of other things, which is fine, we want to rejuvenate the sport of boxing, as well."


    Scheduled for release this November, Jordan said the film will showcase "the difference between what boxing used to be and what it is today."

    It's also not the star's first turn going through intense preparations to play the role of an athlete. Jordan's well-known among "Friday Night Lights" fans as Vince Howard, the quarterback who uses football as an outlet to escape troubles at home.


    Jordan explained that while he worked out and got in shape to play a high school football player on TV, things were a little more difficult stepping into the ring.


    "Boxing’s a different thing. It’s a film. You have intense days of shooting all these fight scenes we have to do," he said. 


    "I ate so much grilled chicken and brown rice and broccoli. Training two or three times a day. Drinking a gallon and a half of water every day," Jordan continued.


    Before you think it's all just for show, Jordan said he even sparred with some of the sport's best, including Olympic gold medalist Andre Ward.


    "I went and checked out Floyd Mayweather when he was training for one of his fights," Jordan said. "Really tried to soak up boxing as much as I could."

    You probably remember teen actor Clayton Snyder from his time playing Hilary Duff's crush, Ethan Craft, on "Lizzie McGuire" from 2001 to 2004.


    More than 10 years after the series ended, Snyder is now an adult because that's the way time works, and at 27 he looks different because, you know, aging.

    Anyway, you get the idea. He looks different than when you saw him on that kids' show more than a decade ago.
