    Austin Butler Addressed The Accusation That He Changed His Voice After Starring In "Elvis"

    "I can prove it."

    By now, you've seen Austin Butler on his press tour for Elvis.

    "During #Elvis, I didn't see my family for about three years," Austin Butler tells Janelle Monáe. "I had months where I wouldn't talk to anybody, and when I did, the only thing I was ever thinking about was Elvis."


    Everyone always jokes about how he really diiiiigs deep into the whole method acting thing and even morphed his voice into Elvis's deep tone.

    “There’s people out there who say that ever since I played Elvis, my voice has changed — that it got deeper, more Elvis-y,” Austin said.

    "But that’s not true. I’ve always sounded like this, and I can prove it. Here's a clip from an interview I did 10 years ago," he said, before an old interview of him on a red carpet started playing.

    In the clip, his voice is pitched wayyyyyy up, like chipmunk-y. It was a funny way to address the accusations that his voice changed.
