- He said he would be taking his sister Ashley as his date to the 2023 Golden Globes, although he was romantically linked to Kaia Gerber at the time
Austin Butler has certainly taken Hollywood by storm! The star, who kicked off his acting career on Disney and Nickelodeons shows, cemented himself as a leading man with his incredible take on the iconic Elvis Presley in 2021’s Elvis, and he has a slew of high-profile projects in the works. Before he gets to those future movies, however, he is expected to appear at the 2023 Golden Globes, where he can celebrate his hard work in Elvis with his nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama category.
Austin will be vying for the trophy against Brendan Fraser (The Whale), Hugh Jackman (The Son), Bill Nighy (Living) and Jeremy Pope (The Inspection) during the televised event, which returns to NBC this year following internal changes made by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The awards show had been taken off the air amid controversy about the lack of diversity among its former voting body.
While Austin may be climbing the dizzying heights of fame, it appears he won’t easily forget the support that got him there in the first place. In a nod of appreciation to his family, the handsome actor revealed he will be taking his sister Ashley Butler to the 2023 Golden Globes, despite him being romantically linked with Kaia Gerber. Although he said it was a “hard” decision, per ET, Austin explained, “She’s my one and only sister, so it’ll be nice to be with her.”
