What Calmed
Austin Butler's
Nerves About The
Elvis Premiere
Baz Luhrmann's "Elvis" biopic is set to hit theaters later this month, and while it may seem like an exciting time for everyone involved, there's one person who has been understandably nervous in the weeks leading up to its premiere — Austin Butler. However, something very heartwarming ended up happening that ultimately put Butler's worries to rest.
According to Austin Butler, two of the most important critics of "Elvis" were The King's ex-wife Priscilla Presley and their daughter, Lisa Marie. Once he heard that the pair had both watched the movie and fallen in love with it the actor's nervousness over the premiere was completely washed away.
Back in May, both Lisa Marie and Priscilla attended special screenings of "Elvis" and then took to social media to rave about the film, particularly Butler’s performance. No matter what critics or audiences think about the film, it seems that Butler has already gotten all the approval he needed the most.
