Austin Butler Reveals Unusual Weight-Gain Method for Elvis

Oscar nominated actor Austin Butler has recently revealed the unique way he put on weight to play Elvis.

Austin Butler gained notoriety when he was chosen to portray Elvis Presley in the Baz Luhrmann biopic Elvis.

Audiences were in awe with Butler’s physical transformation in the film, something he had to do to accurately depict the illustrious musician known for his distinctive physique.

It has recently emerged that Butler used an unusual method to acquire the required weight gain: he would drink melted ice cream. Butler admitted in an interview with Variety that he would make high calorie shakes out of quarts of ice cream, whole milk, and peanut butter in which he would drink several times a day. Even though this may seem like a fun approach to put on weight, Butler has relayed in several interviews that it was a strenuous process and one that he took seriously. To guarantee that he put on weight in a healthy and long-lasting manner, he also collaborated closely with a nutritionist and a personal trainer. To truly embody the role of Elvis, he also practiced playing the guitar and received vocal instruction.


Butler’s dedication to his performance as Elvis Presley is commendable, and among many awards, he has so far received a Golden Globe for Best Actor as well as a Best Actor nomination at the 95th annual Academy Awards.
