Austin Butler Wishes His Girlfriend Kaia Gerber’s Ex Jacob Elordi ‘All The Best’ With Playing Elvis In New Biopic

Austin Butler wished Jacob Elordi, his girlfriend Kaia Gerber’s ex, “all the best” when he was tapped to be the next actor to play Elvis in a new Priscilla Presley biopic.

When asked what he thinks of the Euphoria star, 25, who is channeling the Hound Dog singer in A24’s next film based on Priscilla’s 1985 memoir, Elvis and Me, the 31-year-old actor sends some words of encouragement to his predecessor.

“I wish him all the best,” the star, who won his first Golden Globe on Tuesday night for his role as The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, told Variety.

He continued, “We haven’t spoken, but I hope he’s having a good time.”

While there appears to be no animosity between the two actors, Butler’s girlfriend, 21, previously dated Elordi for just over a year between 2020 and the end of 2021.

Coincidentally, the former couple made their relationship Instagram official by posting an adorable photo of them dressed as Elvis and Priscilla Presley for Halloween in October 2020.

As of December 2021, Gerber is on good terms with Butler, who gave them a big kiss and hug backstage after winning his first Golden Globe Award.

The lovebirds celebrated his success at an after party at the Chateau Marmont before going home together.

Austin, who dated actress Vanessa Hudgens from 2011 to 2020, was first romantically linked to Kaia in late 2021 before they officially hit the red carpet in May 2022.

They cemented their romance by appearing together at the Met Gala last year and then flying to Cannes together, where she supported him at the premiere of Elvis.

In December, the couple enjoyed a family trip to Mexico with Kaia’s parents, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, and brother Presley and his girlfriend.

The model was previously in a relationship with Saturday Night Live Lothario Pete Davidson in late 2019 at a time when he was 26 and she had just turned 18.
