Riley Keough Tells 'Esquire' She Doesn't Think About Being Elvis Presley's Granddaughter

Riley Keough looks smokin’ hot in this gorgeous shot from the March 2016 issue of Esquire magazine!

Here’s what the 26-year-old The Girlfriend Experience actress had to share with the mag:

On her famous relatives: “I was always interested in having my own money-not my family’s money. I don’t think it had anything to do with me being Elvis‘s grand-daughter. None of my drive was I need to get away from my family legacy! I wanted to save up the money to go to film school. People always ask, How crazy is it that your grandpa was Elvis and your stepdad was Michael Jackson? I make them happy and say, “Yeah, it’s soooo crazy!” But actually, I don’t think about it, ever. The reality is I knows much about my grandpa as you’d know about a grandpa you never met.”

On acting: “I had a little lucky streak from a minute, booked another movie. Booked another movie. Booked another movie. This is f–king easy. I see this with a lot of people who start acting. You go in – I got this, and you’re cocky, and people like that, so they hire you. Then you get beaten up little bit. Everything crashes. Oh my God. Am I a sh-t actor? Then you’re not so cocky.”

Also pictured: Riley spotted arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport with her husband Ben Smith-Petersen and their pet pooch to catch a departing flight on Monday (February 15) in New York City.

FYI: Riley is wearing a Native youth coat at the airport.

    And she was Michael Jackson’s former step child….A true visionary regarding , of all things pop , rock and soul.

    Elvis was cool, took a certain style and became the face of it… Similar story to many “rock icons” of his time.
