With the release of the biographical musical movie Elvis in 2022, the name of the talented actor Austin Butler has been on many people’s minds. His amazing performance as Elvis Presley captured viewers’ attention and also gained critical acclaim.
Along with people’s fascination with his career, Austin’s personal history has also become a topic of fascination. But more than anything, fans are eager to take a look at Butler’s relationship history. So, here is a look back at the Elvis star’s life and relationships.
When Did Austin First Found Fame?
Well, in the current time, Austin is best known for playing Elvis Presley in the popular artist’s biographical film. Butler, on the other hand, was already a household name thanks to his roles in Disney Channel and Nickelodeon shows. He had small parts in shows like Hannah Montana, iCarly, Out of Jimmy’s Head, and Wizards of Waverly Place.
Austin Butler’s professional growth continued with his appearances in shows like The Carrie Diaries, and The Shannara Chronicles, and movies like Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure, The Intruders, The Dead Don’t Die, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
However, the Anaheim, California, native’s popularity reached its peak after being cast as Elvis Presley in the biographical film by Baz Luhrmann. Seeing as he gained critical acclaim as well as the audience’s approval, it can be said that Austin’s career will continue to rise.
Besides his career, Austin was also in the news thanks to his romantic endeavors. So, let’s take a look at his previous relationships, including his long-term one with Vanessa Hudgens, and find out who his current girlfriend is.
How Long Were Austin and Vanessa Together?
Long before Austin Butler found fame as Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, he was in the news because of his relationship with fellow actress Vanessa Hudgens. The duo was first seen together in September 2011, while attending a party together. They looked cozy together, and fans of the pair were excited about their new love.
After this, Austin and Vanessa were seen together at numerous movie premiers as well as on dates at many popular intersections. Moreover, Butler and Hudgens were each other’s biggest supporters when both of them lost one of their parents to cancer. The ex-couple were very supportive of each other’s careers and never hesitated to share proud messages about their partner.
Despite being in the spotlight, the former couple managed to keep much of their relationship away from the spotlight. Austin Butler’s ex-girlfriend also stated that due to their careers, the pair were mostly in a long-distance relationship.
This same distance seems to be the reason behind their breakup. The duo ended their almost 9-year-long relationship in 2020. Butler and Hudgens have since moved on with their respective lives.
Who Is Austin’s Current Girlfriend?
Fans were heartbroken when reports about Austin and Vanessa’s breakup made headlines. However, after ending their relationship, both of them have moved on with their lives. Vanessa is currently dating baseball player Cole Tucker, and below we will look into Butler’s love life.
After his breakup with Hudgens, Austin was linked to his Elvis co-star, Olivia DeJonge. Reports suggested that the pair were spotted together in a movie theater while filming the movie in January 2020. Olivia Pope stars as Butler’s on-screen wife, and it seems like their chemistry bled into real life too.
The pair were apparently seen together until November 2020, but neither of them confirmed or denied the reports about their relationship. Similarly, Austin was seen passionately kissing model and actress Lily-Rose Depp in London. But besides this sighting, the duo was not seen together afterward.
However, the Elvis star seems to have found love in another model-turned-actress. Currently, the title of Austin Butler’s girlfriend belongs to Kaia Gerber. The pair sparked dating rumors in late 2021, and their relationship was confirmed soon after.
Furthermore, Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber made headlines after posing together at the Met Gala. They were also photographed together on multiple occasions. Then Gerber supported her boyfriend at the Cannes Film Festival and also at the Elvis screening in New York.
Well, it is evident that Kaia Gerber and Austin Butler’s relationship is going strong despite their 10-year age difference. We hope the relationship continues to flourish and we will see them together for a long time.
