Austin Butler (30) and Kaia Gerber (20) are the new Hollywood dream couple of the moment.
He is one of the most promising young actors and thanks to his role as Elvis Presley (1935-1977), King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, in the film by Baz Luhrmann (59), he is flying high.
She is the daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford (56) and Rande Gerber (60), George Clooney’s (61) best friend and business partner.
On Wednesday, Butler and Gerber walked hand in hand down the red carpet at the world premiere of “Elvis” in Cannes and exchanged kisses for the photographers to the sounds of “Love Me Tender” – also to the delight of the audience.
The two are said to have been a couple since the beginning of the year. In March, they appeared at a party in Los Angeles ahead of the Oscars. The actor and model were also spotted together at the Met Gala in New York. But they have now really witnessed and celebrated their love for the first time on the Côte d’Azur.
love comes love goes
At the film festival, Gerber wore a tailored Celine by Hedi Slimane dress with Tiffany diamond earrings. She inherited her fashion sense from her mother and emulated her career early on. At the age of ten she got her first modeling job for the children’s line of Versace. Gerber can already look back on a turbulent love life. So she was in a relationship with Pete Davidson (28), the current partner of Kim Kardashian (41). There were also brief relationships with actors Jacob Elordi (24) and Cole Sprouse (29).
Despite his young age, Austin Butler has been in the business for a long time. He made his debut at the age of 14 in the “Nickelodeon” program and was also seen in youth series such as “Hannah Montana”. For a long time, his focus was on TV productions. He first set an exclamation mark in the cinema in 2019 in the Tarantino hit “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” as Manson Family member Charles “Tex” Watson (76). Butler was in a relationship with US actress Vanessa Hudgens (33) for nine years, later he also had a brief affair with Lily-Rose Depp (23), the daughter of Johnny Depp (58). Incidentally, Priscilla Presley (77) is extremely satisfied with the role of her ex-husband, as she emphasized at the premiere. The film opens in Swiss cinemas on June 23.
