Not every super hottie is lucky enough to start out that way. Years of growth and the sweet blessing of puberty can make miracles happen and sometimes it’s the ‘nerds’ who end up looking jaw-droppingly, eye-poppingly good-looking. And luckily for us, some of the most dramatic nerd-to-hottie transformations happen in Hollywood, right before our eager eyes. Here are 12 nerdy actors who have turned into total hotties. Guess who’s number one on this list. Come on, guess! You know who it is! Hint: He’s responsible for a new term of this very phenomenon. *wink wink, nudge, grin*
12. Emma Watson
It may seem strange to think of Emma Watson as someone with nerdy tendencies since she’s now a super-glam gorgeous A-list actress, but remember that when she broke onto the scene in the Harry Potter movies she was the nerdy, uber-studious, academically-obsessed Hermione Granger. Taking the scholarly geek to the next level with her witching ways, Hermione was the top nerd at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, if you catch a glimpse of her on the red carpet or in ads for top endorsement deals, you can’t help but be taken aback by how lovely Emma Watson truly is, all grown and leading the way for the next generation of Hollywood women.
