Riley Keough's Mom Lisa Marie Presley Didn't Want Her Growing Up Like a 'Hollywood Celebrity Daughter'
Here’s what the 26-year-old The Girlfriend Experience actress had to share:
On how she knew her husband Ben Smith-Petersen was the one: “We were together eight months and then we got engaged…But I think I told him I wanted to marry him after a week. I was like, ‘Homie… .’ I don’t know, I just had a moment. I don’t over-intellectualize it because it just kind of happened, and I went with my gut there. We both had the same reaction, like, ‘OK, cool.’”
On the level-headed approach to fame her mom Lisa Marie Presley instilled in her: “She was like, ‘I don’t want you growing up like another Hollywood celebrity daughter.’ She was so not about that life, you know? She didn’t really put attention on it. It was there. We’d get photographed doing stuff, but I didn’t see a tabloid until I was 15.”
On choosing the right moment to enter the industry: “I wanted to grow up before I started acting. I wanted to live my life a bit. I also really don’t like attention on me, so it was kind of coming to terms with all of that.”
