Who is Austin Butler? If you’ve heard the name Austin Butler a lot in the past year, you’ve probably been thinking about his performance as Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic.
Austin’s successful turn in the blue suede shoes of the King resulted in the addition of two glistening awards to his shelf: a Golden Globe and a BAFTA. At the Golden Globes, the actor said of the late King of Rock and Roll, “You were an icon and a rebel, and I love you so much!” You are in my thoughts, and I will not forget you!
Here’s all you need to know about Austin, a talented actor who is switching gears to play the villain in Dune: Part 2.

Does Austin Butler have a girlfriend? What girl is Austin Butler dating now?
Austin is dating Cindy Crawford’s daughter, supermodel Kaia Gerber, and the world’s hearts have just been crushed.
Life & Style reports that the couple’s age difference doesn’t appear to be a problem for them. A reliable source said, “Austin is older than her by 10 years, but she likes that.” The source claimed, “They make a really cute couple, and they seem to be having a great time getting to know each other.”
They have just been seen leaving their hotel in Paris for a night of romance. A solid connection was evident by the fact that they were still holding hands while eating in the city of love.
Austin dated Vanessa Hudgens for nine years and was previously linked to Lily-Rose Depp. After breaking up with Vanessa, he told GQ, “Life is full of changes and you’ve got to find a way to constantly be evolving and growing.”

Who does Austin play in Dune 2?
Austin, who has previously played one of the world’s most prominent guitarists, plays the devious Feyd-Rautha in Dune: Part 2.
Based only on the clip, Austin’s bald head is nearly unrecognizably different and frightening. Many of Austin’s fans have remarked that he has not lost the Southern drawl he used for his role as Elvis, but according to Dune 2 co-star Dave Bautista, he no longer has it.
This wasn’t Austin Butler, whatever he was. We can rule out Elvis Presley. His appearance and voice have changed. The way he carries himself, Dave told USA Today, is unnerving.
What has Austin Butler said about portraying Elvis?
He told the Hollywood Reporter, “When I began the process, I set out to get my voice to be identical.” That’s chilling, for sure. That started the fire, then. I had been taking vocal lessons for a year before we began filming.
He continued by saying, “I watched as much as I could, over and over again,” referring to his study of Elvis’ movies and performances. I have a huge sense of duty to Elvis, his ex-wife Priscilla, their daughter Lisa Marie, and his many fans throughout the globe.
Baz Luhrmann told GQ that he also saw additional similarities between the actor and the role. Elvis was a very religious man. Furthermore, I believe Austin has a deep spirituality. He has a deep and expansive interior existence. He’s beautiful on the exterior, but you can tell he’s a serious thinker on the inside.
Austin, when preparing for the part of Elvis, remarked, “I was looking at Elvis, and I was seeing the icon, the superhero.” This was said during a special screening of Elvis hosted at London’s Ham Yard Hotel. Those attributes do not define the guy. I had to take it all off.
Acting like Elvis made him feel like “a kid wearing their dad’s suit,” and he questioned whether or not he could “ever hold a candle to Elvis’ magnetism.” He performed an acceptable job, in our opinion.
