“And when I did that, the only thing I ever thought about was Elvis. I spoke with his voice the whole time,” he told singer Janelle Monáe in an interview fordiversity.

The actor stars alongside Tom Hanks elvisLuhrmann’s June release film about the rock ‘n’ roll singer’s life and career.

He said VMAN: “[Luhrmann] had all the executives and everyone from RCA back in the offices, he brought them into the recording studio and said “I want you all to sit across from Austin” and he told them to bother me.

“So they made fun of me and stuff like that while I was singing.”

Butler also said Leonardo DiCaprio warned him about Luhrmann’s unusual approach to filmmaking.

The actor who worked with the director Romeo + Juliet, apparently told him, “Baz will push you in ways you didn’t know anyone could.” He will throw you off balance and throw you off balance.”

After filming for elvis Butler was wrapped up and hospitalized in March 2021 when his body “started to shut down.”

In conversation with GQButler described how he wrapped up filming in March 2021, only to be diagnosed with a virus that has the same symptoms as appendicitis, leaving him bedridden.
