It seems Elvis Presley is always on Priscilla Presley's mind.

In an interview with The Times UK published Sunday, the actress, 78, opened up about her "rollercoaster" marriage with the rockstar and how she never really stops thinking about him.

When speaking about spending time at Graceland, Priscilla noted how she "can still feel Elvis' spirit there."

"To be honest, there isn’t a day [that] goes by when I don’t think of him," she said of her late husband. "Just last week I saw a shirt and I could almost hear myself saying, 'Elvis would love that. Should I get it for him?'"

Priscilla then touched on what she believed Elvis would have done had he not died at such a young age.

"Musically, I think he was pretty happy with how things had turned out. He loved knowing that his music meant something to people," she said. "I remember sitting with him at Graceland listening to some of the songs he was recording, and I asked him why he sang so many ballads. He answered me straight away, 'Because those songs touch the heart. Life’s truth is in those songs.' He was right."

She wondered if Elvis would have switched genres and "moved more towards gospel music."

"If you ever saw him sit down at the piano and sing one of those old songs, you’d know what I was talking about. His face so serene and beautiful he would lose himself in gospel music," she recalled.

The ex-wife of the late singer then addressed the ups and downs of their marriage.

"Do I dream of Elvis? Sure. When someone has been such a big part of your life, that’s bound to happen. Living with him was a rollercoaster but I don’t think I’ll ever find anyone I love as much as I loved him," she concluded.

Last month, Priscilla gave her stamp of approval to Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla, which was released on Oct. 27.

During a Q&A event at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas, she revealed she had her reservations about the film going into it.

“I was very concerned about this movie,” Priscilla, who is credited as an executive producer on the film, said. “I think it's right on, to be honest with you.”

Priscilla then praised the Academy Award-winning filmmaker herself as showed her appreciation for the care she showed in telling the story, which was adapted largely from Priscilla's 1985 memoir, Elvis and Me.

“I love her filmmaking. I think she does a great job. She is for women, and when she approached me about doing a movie about me, I was moved by it,” she noted. “If anyone were to do a movie, it would be for her. I would never support another movie from anyone else doing it."
