Lisa Marie Presley was one of the most famous children in the world when she was first born on February 1, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. Her parents were the famous singer Elvis Presley and his wife, Priscilla Presley. On the other hand, she died away on January 12, 2023, at the age of 54, after being brought to the emergency hospital at her California home after being discovered unconscious by her family members.
The death of Lisa Marie occurs almost seven months after “Elvis,” a high-budget biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring her father, was made available in theaters throughout the United States. The fact that Luhrmann was involved in the development of the movie, in addition to Lisa Marie and Priscilla, was one of the primary reasons why there was so much excitement about the movie.
Both the mother and the daughter had very positive things to say about the movie, especially the way that actor Austin Butler portrayed the “King of Rock and Roll” in the film.
On January 10, 2023, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association conferred the Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a Drama Motion Film onto a recipient, and their opinions were shared by the organization. As it was announced that Butler had won the prize, he gave a hug to Baz Luhrmann and his sister, who he had brought with him as his date. Following that, he blew a kiss toward Priscilla and Lisa Marie, who was making her final public appearance there just two days before she passed away.
“And the family of Elvis Presley. Thank you folks. I am grateful that you have shared your homes, your emotions, and your memories with me. Lisa Marie, Priscilla, I love you forever, “In his statement accepting the award, he said.
At the time that he was speaking, Priscilla could be seen touching her heart with her palm while Lisa Marie seemed to be overcome with emotion.
A few short weeks after Lisa Marie’s passing, Butler was notified that he had been nominated for an Academy Award in the category of Best Actor for the same performance and picture. Butler reminisced on his connection with Lisa Marie and how her presence had an influence on his life during an interview on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” The discussion took place on “The Tonight Show.”
Because of his work in “Elvis,” Butler received a nomination for an Academy Award for the first time in his acting career. After the news, Butler sent a statement to Good Morning America in which he made sure to include Lisa Marie in the acknowledgement of her accomplishment.
“Although this is such a good time, the pain is just so profound with the death of Lisa Marie,” Butler said. “Life is full of so many ups and downs, and while this is such a positive moment.”
Since I am aware that she placed a high priority on this matter, I am certain that she is overjoyed at the moment.
According to the actor, he first met Lisa Marie while they were screening “Elvis” at Graceland, which is the estate that Lisa Marie inherited from her father, Elvis Presley.
On “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” he shared with Jimmy Fallon that he had never had an experience in which he had met someone and felt an immediate depth of relationship with them. “I’ve never had an experience where I met somebody and felt an immediate depth of relationship with them,” he said. “She’s also a person who didn’t have anything to prove and wouldn’t open up to anyone, and yet she opened up to me,” I said. “She’s also a person who didn’t have anything to prove.”
“We came so close in such a short amount of time,” he said.
Butler also made a reference to the “emotional contrast” of promoting the movie and the awards season while at the same time grieving the loss of Lisa Marie.
“It’s odd at times like this because it’s so bittersweet,” he said. “I don’t know how else to explain it.” “Even though a lot of wonderful things are taking place, I can’t help but feel terrible for her family. And you know how disappointing it is that she is not here to celebrate with us.”
Fallon expressed his satisfaction that Butler had the opportunity to meet and have a connection with Lisa Marie, even if it was just for a little period of time. In response, the young actor said as follows:
“Yes, I’m glad I got to be with her at the (Golden) Globes; it’s something I’ll never forget for the rest of my life,” the speaker said. “I’ll never forget that for the rest of my life.”
When it comes to the competition for the role of Best Actor at the Academy Awards, Butler is up against the likes of Colin Farrell, Brendan Fraser, Paul Mescal, and Bill Nighy.
