It comes after Austin said he “lost connection” with his character after playing Elvis.

He told GQ magazine, “You can lose touch with who you really are, and I definitely had that when I finished Elvis—I don’t know who I am.”

In addition to the mental impact of playing Elvis, Austin also revealed that he was bedridden for a week after falling unwell a day after finishing filming in March 2021.

Austin said he’s been diagnosed with a virus that mimics appendicitis, and said it’s like shutting down his body right after filming.

He said, “I woke up at four in the morning in excruciating pain, and was taken to the hospital.”

Despite his auditions for the role, Austin admitted that he still finds Elvis’ music “relaxing” because he’s talked about being a huge fan of the American singer.

“I’ve never loved someone I’ve never met more than Elvis,” he added.

Speaking of the similarities between him and Elvis, Austin revealed the death of their mothers when he and the rock star were 23 years old.

Austin admitted it gave him ‘chills’ because he said he looked for things that could allow him to connect with Suspicious Minds on a personal level.

His comments come before the presentation of Elvis’ biography at the Cannes Film Festival.

The film stars Austin and Tom Hanks, who plays his infamous manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

There’s a lot of excitement going on about the biography of Elvis Presley from Australia by Baz Luhrmann, who hopes to recreate the uproar he made when he brought the can to Cannes with the Moulin Rouge! 20 years ago.

The film chronicles Elvis’ life and career from his early days as a kid growing up in Mississippi to his rise as a rock ‘n’ roll icon and movie star, along with his complicated relationship with his manager.
