You remember Matthew Lewis right? The guy who played Neville Longbottom? Or maybe you remember him as the guy who did puberty the right way. 

Here's a picture to jog your memory:

Yeah, that guy. 

Well, Matthew just gave an interview to Seventeen magazine, and in it, he dropped some seriously hot gossip about life behind the scenes of the Harry Potter movies. 

Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley may have stolen the show when it came to on-screen romance, but it turns out there was some MAJOR crushing going on IRL. Like Neville and Hermione. 

Yup. Matthew had a crush on Emma Watson for YEARS while filming those movies. He told Seventeen: "I probably had a crush on Emma for a couple of years, until I was 13 or 14 – something like that."

But before you get your hopes up, he's got bad news for you: It never became a thing. "I mean nothing ever came of it, anyway. It never went anywhere," he said.

And he wasn't the only one brewing up a love potion. Matthew went on to reveal that there were a LOT of raging teen hormones amongst the cast: "Effectively for us, it was like being in school. We started tutoring on set and we were on set all the time, so I think that everyone had crushes on everyone else at some point."

And Valentine's Day is when the sparks would fly. "There was always Valentine’s Day – everyone would write secret Valentine's cards to different people," he added. "I think on the second [film] there was like love notes and love letters flying around...It was just exactly what you would imagine you would get in any high school, just we happen to be in a film studio."

We wonder what other off-screen magic romances we totally missed out on.
