Actors James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) are featured in the new “Sexiest Man Alive” issue of People magazine this week. In a section about twins who “light up the screen” with looks and talent, the magazine writes:

“As Harry Potter’s Fred and George Weasley, they’re a matched set of flame-haired mischief. But away from Hogwarts, James and Oliver Phelps, 20, aren ‘t redheads or even, they say, very much alike.

James (left): We’ve learned to watch each other’s backs, but we’re pretty different personalities. I tend to take the mickey [to tease] a bit more, while Oliver is more sensitive.

Oliver: Stylewise, what I think is good James thinks isn’t. When we’re finished filming [Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix], I’m going to let my hair grow in dark brown with highlights. James wants his short.

James: We’ll be brown again when we get clearance from the studio.

Oliver: Probably around Christmastime. In time for the family photos.

This issue of People Magazine is available on newsstands now. James and Oliver Phelps will be seen again as the Weasley Twins in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, due in theaters next July. Thanks lj, pop, and all who emailed!
