What did Jacob Elordi have to say about Elvis Presley?
In his September 2022 GQ cover story, The Kissing Booth star talked about being inspired by the Love Me Tender star Elvis Presley. He stated that he bought Peter Guralnick’s Elvis biography Last Train to Memphis after seeing the Luhrmann movie’s trailer.
Jacob told the media outlet, “I was just like, damn, Elvis Presley wanted to be James Dean. He wanted to be Marlon Brando. I’ve researched almost every actor from that time period, and I passed [Elvis] off as an entertainer and singer.”
Elordi went on to say, “But then he was an actor. I guess, in a way, I’m trying to learn from these people. Because I obviously don’t have any friends that have been through the same thing, really, so they’re almost like guiding beacons.”
