Austin Butler is keeping his Elvis accent close, and his girlfriend, Kaia Gerber, closer.
Although the 21-year-old model did not join her 31-year-old boyfriend on the 2023 Golden Globes red carpet, Gerber was later photographed holding hands with Butler while wearing a semisheer black maxidress with her hair down in loose waves. January 10 was a big night for the Elvis star, who took home the award for best actor in a drama motion picture.
However, the pair's public displays of affection didn't end with a little hand-holding. In an Instagram video shared by the French magazine Gala, Gerber and Butler were seen sharing a long embrace and kiss outside the ballroom of the Beverly Hilton hotel, where the Globes were taking place.
Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber have been linked since November 2021 and made their red-carpet debut as a couple at the 2022 Met Gala six months later. Though unafraid of a bit of PDA, the pair have remained quiet about their relationship to the press. When asked about her during an August 2022 interview with GQ, he responded, “I don’t think there’s anything I want to share about that, but thank you for providing the space.”
Clearly, their relationship is still going strong—as is the Elvis accent Butler adopted for his role in the Baz Luhrmann film, which wrapped filming in March 2021.
“I don’t even think about it. I don’t think I sound like him still, but I guess I must because I hear it a lot,” he told a reporter on the Golden Globes red carpet, per The Hollywood Reporter. “I often liken it to when somebody lives in another country for a long time and I had three years where that was my only focus in life. So I’m sure that there’s just pieces of my DNA that will always be linked in that way.” Sure!
