Austin Butler Refers to Ex Vanessa Hudgens as ‘Friend’ When Retelling Story About ‘Elvis’ Role

Austin Head servant as of late retold a story including ex Vanessa Hudgens, alluding to her as a companion.

During The Hollywood Journalist’s Entertainers Roundtable, the Brilliant Globe victor, 31, uncovered it was a “companion” who urged him to seek after the job of Elvis Presley in Elvis.

“The prior month I heard that Baz [Luhrmann] was making the film, I planned to see Christmas lights with a companion, and there was an Elvis Christmas tune on the radio and I was chiming in, and my companion investigated at me and goes, ‘You must play Elvis.’ I said, ‘Gracious, that is such a remote chance,’ ” Steward said.

“A long time later, I was playing the piano,” he proceeded. “I never truly sang for any of my companions or anything. That equivalent companion was there and I was playing the piano.

She said, ‘I’m not kidding around. You must sort out how you can get the freedoms to a content.’ Then, at that point, my representative called and said, ‘So Baz Luhrmann is making an Elvis film.’ ”

While Steward didn’t explicitly name Hudgens, 34, in the meeting, the entertainer shared an almost indistinguishable story a long time back when the two were still attached.

“Last December, we were driving along and we were paying attention to Christmas music, and afterward an Elvis Presley Christmas tune came on,” Hudgens said on a 2019 episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan. “He had recently colored his hair dull. He’s a characteristic light, and I was taking a gander at him and he was chiming in and I was like, ‘Darling, you want to play Elvis.’ ”

Very much like Steward referenced, Hudgens went on by adding how she demanded he tryout in the wake of hearing him sing a greater amount of the famous stone and-roller while playing the piano. “Then in January, he was sitting at the piano,” she shared. “Furthermore, he’s playing and he’s singing and I’m as, ‘I don’t have the foggiest idea how, yet you want to sort out how you can play Elvis. As, I don’t have the foggiest idea how we get freedoms or what we do, yet you want to play him.’ ”

Head servant and Hudgens were spotted together without precedent for 2011 at Disney costar Ashley Tisdale’s sister’s birthday celebration, and showed up at red floor coverings after that.

At the point when it was openly declared that Head servant would be assuming the job of Elvis in July 2019, Hudgens shared her help in an Instagram post.

“I AMMMM OVERRRR THE F — — MOOOOOOOOONNNNN. I Can hardly Pause 😍😍😍😍😍😍 SO Pleased with MY HONEYYYYY!!!” she composed at that point.

A source affirmed to Individuals that the two split up not long after, formally parting in January 2020, refering to requesting work and itineraries.

Both have since continued on, Head servant with model Kaia Gerber, and Hudgens with master baseball player Cole Exhaust.
