Austin Butler on Elvis and Why it Took Months After Filming to Find Himself Again

During the interview, Butler talked about the pressure of taking on such an important role, how it took him months after filming to find himself again, why he didn’t see his family or friends for two years while working on the film, being scared to have Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley see the film, and more.
