After dressing up as the King of Rock and Roll for Baz Luhrmann's film, Austin Butler, 31, disputes claims made by fans that he still sounds like Elvis Presley.
On January 10, Austin won his first Golden Globe. His acceptance speech was mocked online because it featured Elvis-like speech patterns.
After being questioned about it in the press room, the actor responded, "I don't even think about it; I don't think I sound like him still, but I guess I haven't noticed because I hear it a lot.".
Austin continued, "I often compare it to when someone lives in another country for a long time, and I had three years where ...
...that was my only focus in life, so I'm sure there's just pieces of my DNA that will always be linked in that way.".
He admitted to Janelle Monáe for a Variety interview in December that he didn't see my family for three years while he was getting ready for the part.
He admitted, "I had months where I wouldn't talk to anyone.
And while I was speaking in Elvis' voice the entire time, that was all I could think about.
I just feel so endlessly grateful to them that they gave me this space to somehow try to capture the essence of ...
...this man that means so much to them, and that they love so much, he said, as reported by Entertainment Tonight.
The Carrie Diaries actor was incredibly grateful in his acceptance speech after winning Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama because this was his first Golden Globe nomination and his first Globe win.
He then gave a special shout-out to director Baz Luhrman before saying, "Oh, man, all my words are leaving me. I just am so grateful right now I'm in this room full of my heroes.".
I owe this to a fearless, visionary director who gave me the freedom to experiment while knowing I would always have support, according to Austin.
Baz Luhrmann, I adore you.
