HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - JULY 22: Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler arrive at the Sony Pictures'

Austin Butler’s ex Vanessa Hudgens has some comments about his Elvis Presley accent. Months after canceling filming for his Golden Globe turn as the King of Rock in “Elvis,” Butler continues to channel the late legend with his voice. Recently, the actor’s voice coach came to his defense in an interview with ABC Gold Coast in Australia, saying that the change was “real.” However, that didn’t slow down the memes about Butler’s accent.

On Jan. 20, Hudgens responded to an Instagram slideshow of memes about how her ex-husband’s voice has evolved since he starred in “Elvis.” The “Princess Switch” star captioned the post, “Crying.”

Butler and Hudgens were together from 2011 to 2020, so the 34-year-old is definitely familiar with his pre-“Elvis” voice. A source told E! News that distance was the reason for the separation of the couple. When the news of their breakup broke in January 2020, Hudgens was busy filming “The Princess Switch: Switched Again”, while Butler was in Australia working on “Elvis”.

In May 2022, the Golden Globe winner offered a quick answer to a question about their breakup in an interview with GQ Hype. “Life is full of changes,” he said. “And you have to find a way to keep changing and growing.”

For his part, Butler has maintained that he doesn’t hear as much Presley in his accent as everyone else. After his Golden Globe win, he told Variety that he didn’t notice a permanent change in the sound of his voice. “I don’t think I’m like him yet, but I guess I am [it must be] because I hear it a lot,” he said.

Butler continued, “I often compare it to when someone lives in another country for a long time. I had three years there [Elvis] it was my only focus in life, so I’m sure there are just pieces of my DNA that will always be connected that way.”
