Austin Butler wishes Lisa Marie Presley was

Austin Butler wishes Lisa Marie Presley was ‘here to celebrate’ after the film based on the life of her legendary father, Elvis, received eight Oscar nominations.

Butler, 31, who was nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of The King, remembered Lisa Marie following her tragic passing at age 54 as he spoke with The Hollywood Reporter shortly after the nominations were announced.

‘[This role] seemed as though it was this impossible mountain to climb in front of me,’ he told THR. ‘There were so many pitfalls and so I just was focusing on one step at a time.

‘And really the thing for me was just honoring the life of this man and his family. And that’s why those moments when Lisa Marie and Priscilla [Presley] got to see the film and then I first saw them after… nothing I would do would ever top that. And especially with Lisa Marie not being here with us. I just wish she was here to celebrate today with us.’
