Looks like Dudley Dursley, aka Harry Melling has shed a few pounds. I must say he’s gotten quite attractive.

In an interview with Telegraph he admitted that the producers of Deathly Hallows almost recast him because of the weight loss.

“It was nearly two years ago,” he says, refusing the offer of breakfast. “I was doing a show at the National Youth Theatre, playing an old man. Before that I had played fat clowns and I thought, ‘If I want to have the career I would like, I am going to have to lose weight.’ I was just starting drama school, and found I was moving around a lot. I also started to eat sensibly. The weight just dropped off. I went from 16st to 11st 5lb.”

He hadn’t appeared in a Potter flick for a couple of years, so when the producers saw him again they didn’t even recognize him.

[H]e had changed almost beyond recognition, to the producers’ alarm. “They did this double-take, ‘Oh my God, we are going to have to do something,’ and I felt very guilty. They could have recast, but instead they padded me out.”

Wow, I’m rendered speechless. Who would have thought?


College Student Woes

January 12, 2010

so my friend wanted to make sure i added that her boyfriend is fucking stupid and needs to learn how to communicate.

and onward! so i have officially completed my second day of the semester. luckily i got into the math class i needed which is a plus. sadly all the classes i got into are at the santa rosa junior college and not city college san francisco. damn budget cuts. but oh well. my teacher’s are actually pretty cool. my economy teacher quoted aladdin, “you’ve heard of the golden rule? the one who has the gold makes the rules”, another teacher compared the first day of a new semester to a date on eharmony and said he wanted to raise his grade on ratemyproffesor.com from a B to an A. another gave a brief history of his life as a broke rockstar in crappy bands during the sixties, and another one referenced star wars. so all in all it’s been a good first two days. and now my social life is officially over. my teacher’s were talking about the amount of homework we’d have and for the first time since i started school back in kindergarten i believe that it will be EXACTLY how much homework they say it’s going to be. To be a full time student you need at least 12 units. well this semester i’ll have 18. yea, i know it’s going to be tough, which is exactly why i know that my social life is officially over. which is depressing because i really like my social life.

the santa rosa jc has been good to me so far though. except for the fact that i’ve practically seen half of the kids i went to high school with so far around the campus. i think to myself, wasn’t this the reason you moved away in the first place? but at least i still technically live in san francisco otherwise i might kill myself. and it’s not just my old high school peers who irritate me about the school either. i mean i wouldn’t call myself a fashion snob {very far from it actually} but seriously?! the clothes the people wear here is ridiculous. and i thought that they dressed weird in san francisco. at least hot straight guys are more bountiful in santa rosa than san francisco. almost all of the great guys in san francisco are either already taken or gay. so that pretty much sucks for me. not in sr though, or santa cruz. which is another reason i’m excited to get there eventually.

on a completely unrelated topic, i went to the deli today to order a BLT {a bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich for those of you who aren’t in the know} and this is how the conversation went:

me: “hi, i’d like to order a BLT”
counter guy: “alright, would you like lettuce and tomato on that?”

seriously dude?! yea, i just asked for BLT but hold the L and the T. or better yet, hey dude, can i have a B? no. i asked specifically for a BLT. done deal. order over. maybe it’s just habit for him but honestly, it’s still a pretty ridiculous question to ask. you don’t order a ham and cheese sandwich and have the deli guy ask if you want cheese on that. it’s a given because it’s in the name unless you say otherwise. duh.

i don’t know why but i feel i need to share this.

wasn’t daniel radcliffe just so adorable back then? it was during the days when the better other dumbledore was still there and before he got naked with a horse on stage decided to do plays. oh well, what can you expect from someone who’s trying desperately to escape the name harry potter as his only acting experience on his resume? just like apparently emma watson turned into a total douchebag bitch. {not that bitch is that much better than douchebag, but it sounds a little more elegant}

ok i’m going to stop being a loser on the last night of my social freedom {even though i have homework to do already} and go join my friends who are making mac and cheese downstairs {yes mac and cheese. who said you can’t enjoy it in your twenties?} peace x
