Austin Butler said his Elvis Presley accent era was over

He denied allegations of an Elvis-style emphasis on speaking at the awards ceremony. Instead, he suggested that a part of him will always be tied to the role.

“I don’t think I speak like him yet, but I guess I have to, because I hear him a lot,” he told the Globes press room. “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 goal in life, so I’m sure there are only pieces of my DNA that will always be linked in this way.”

Butler told Norton that he intentionally did not continue to look like Elvis until well after production ended. If he had, he would sound different, claiming that the deepest voice is his natural voice. “I should think consciously not to talk like I am right now. But my voice sounds different when I’m talking to my dog ​​or when I’m talking to my dad or when I’m here right now,” Butler told Norton.

Although the days of Butler growing up in Anaheim, Calif., looking like Elvis from Memphis, Tenn., are over, the damage caused by the rocker’s accent for so many years will linger.

“I probably damaged my vocal chords with all that singing,” Butler told Norton.

Butler isn’t the only one addressing his drawl. Vanessa Hudgenswho previously dated Butler, left a short comment on an Instagram post regarding Elvis’ deep South Austin accent, writing, “Crying.”
