Austin Butler discussed his time working with Tom Hanks on the film Elvis. The actor admitted that he felt “intimidated” upon meeting Tom Hanks.

Austin, 31, talked about his first encounter with Hanks, which took place at Australian director Baz Lurhmann’s home.

During his latest appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Austin shared, “Whenever you meet somebody that you admired for a long time you hope that they’re going to be warm to you. But you never really know.”

The dynamic pair Austin and Hanks portrayed was Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis Presley’s manager.

He continued, “And somebody like Tom, he’s been doing this for so long and he’s such a master of his craft and so I was intimidated.”

“Tom turns around and sees me and goes, ‘My boy! Give me a hug,’ and he gives me the biggest bear hug,” Austin said, adding, “Then Baz said, ‘Let me give you guys a moment,’ and we just talked for so long.”

“At one point [Hanks] said, ‘You know I was at the studio earlier today and I was choosing which doors I was going to throw up outside of for the first couple of weeks.’ And I said, ‘Why? You nervous?” and he goes, ‘Yeah. I’m so nervous.’ I said, ‘You’re nervous? I’m terrified.’ He goes, ‘Nobody knows what Colonel Parker sounds like. Everyone knows what Elvis sounds like.’”

“Suddenly we were colleagues you know,” Austin told Norton, adding, “We were both being able to share in our fear and we were joined in that way.”
