Austin Butler Unveils His Likely Oscars 2023 Plus One, & It's Not Girlfriend Kaia Gerber

As one of the Best Actor nominees, Austin Butler will be a guest of honor at the 2023 Oscars, and it turns out he has a pretty good idea who will be by his side. It doesn’t sound like it will be girlfriend Kaia Gerber, either.

The 31-year-old attended the 2023 Oscars Nominees Luncheon on February 13 with his sister Ashley as his date. During an interview at the event, he said he was bringing his dad with him to the 2023 SAG Awards and his movement coach Polly Bennett to the BAFTAs.

While he said that it was “so hard to make a choice” about his guest, Austin mentioned that a special friend would likely join him at the Oscars.

Austin told Access Hollywood he would likely bring his agent James with him and explained why.

For starters, Austin described him as “one of my best friends in the world.”

“I’ve known him since I was 17 years old and he also happens to be my agent,” he added. “We were friends first, and I would not have my career without him. The amount of times that he’s helping me to decide on whether or not to do something or he’s pushed me to. He’s believed in me in moments where maybe I didn’t believe in myself.”

He continued, saying “I think I’m gonna bring James because he’s been on this ride with me for a long time.”

As a star herself, it’s entirely possible Kaia will have her own invite to the awards show. We’ll have to see what happens on March 12!

In the same interview Austin also talked about a time when he almost retired from acting.
