Celebrities Who Want To Get In Your Pants… With Their Underwear Line
Neville Longbottom missed a golden opportunity to cash in on his underwear modeling. The actor Matthew Lewis, who played the awkward Hogwarts student in “Harry Potter,” stripped down to his boxer briefs for the cover of Attitude magazine. Nobody was more displeased with this skimpy photoshoot than the opinionated author J.K. Rowling. “Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God’s sake,” Rowling tweeted. Why you be looking in the first place, Rowling? Thought so. Lewis modeled Emporio Armani for the shoot, but imagine how much money he could have made if he had worn his own brand? These other celebrities know what’s up.
Ellen DeGeneres gives away a lot of underwear with her name on it. On the Ellen Shop, there are boxers made of modal fabric and elastane.

All around the world, pretty girls know Britney Spears and her recent single with Iggy Azalea. Few people know about the 33-year-old’s Intimate Collection line of underwear. One reviewer named Socalgirl gave a two star review on Amazon for the Begonia Full Shaper bra, saying, “Such a pretty bra, but the fit is not good in my case. It’s also a soft laminated cup, which means it has two layers of unpadded material sewn together for slight support.”
Dita Von Teese is a famous burlesque dancer, model, and costume designer who designed an underwear line called Von Follies in 2012. She was at the British department store Harrod’s last week in London to promote her newest line Femme Fatale. “When people said your child years are the best, that wasn’t the case for me.

Forget about Victoria’s Secret. Let’s talk about the baseball legend Derek Jeter’s secret. He allegedly kept his underwear line a secret to save his reputation as a baseball player.

There is a defensive system that shoots ice arrows from your groin “when overenthusiastic sports fans forget that even sports icons needs personal space,” according to Details.
Cristiano Ronaldo likes to pose in his underwear. According to Men’s Health, his body fat is at the most in the single digits.

One of his opponents, Schalke’s Max Meyer, was also photographed wearing CR7 underwear!
David Beckham has his own line, but you might have seen his joint effort with James Corden.

That’s Kylie – always trying to help out the clueless spouses.
Not all underwear brands have a happy ending. Bar Refaeli launched a line called Under.me and it went south 18 months after launch, according to Jewish Business News. They didn’t make as much business as they had hoped and they had to fire most of the employees. Refaeli’s partner David Balsar said, “We’re cutting costs in order to keep business very lean and profitable. We have one and a half people doing everything.” Is that one person and a half-human superhuman doing everything?

Do you hate holes ripped in your underwear? What about frayed elastic? Then you’d better stay away from Jessica Simpson’s brand of purple and orange thongs because the Amazon reviews showed no mercy. “I washed them when I got them, obviously, and then again and noticed the elastic immediately frayed in each pair after the second washing. So disappointed because I love her shoes,” said a user named Taylor on January 16.
