'Elvis' Cast Appears at Cannes Press Conference, Director Baz Luhrmann Talks About the Film's 'Greatest Review'

The stars of the new movie Elvis, directed by Baz Luhrmann, stepped out for a press conference and photo call at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

Tom Hanks, Austin Butler, Olivia DeJonge, and Alton Mason were in attendance at the photo call on Thursday morning (May 26) in Cannes, France.

Baz and the cast were joined by Elvis‘ real-life wife Priscilla Presley, who has shown a ton of support for the film.

During the press conference, Baz talked about the “greatest review” the movie received.

“No review would ever mean the most to us than the woman who was married to Elvis Presley,” Baz said, talking about Priscilla‘s reaction.

Priscilla wrote a note to Baz that read, “‘I just wasn’t ready for that. Every breath about Austin, every move, the spirit of the person, the humanity. If my husband were here today he’d look him in the eye and say ‘How dare you? You are me.’”

Baz added, “He was a father, he was a husband, and a grandfather and a person, and they have children. The greatest review I got from them in my life; now there’s something they can look to that is the truth of the humanity of the man.”

Tom avoided a question about his polarizing accent during the press conference.

FYI: Olivia is wearing Prada.
