Why do we bestow upon Hollywood’s finest the name of ‘stars’? Consider this for a moment; it is not mere hyperbole: these big screen icons exude an aura that can carry charismatic waves across an entire room, drawing us into their gravitational pull. And thus, it won’t be wrong to say that Austin Butler, the Golden Globe-touting charmer, incarnates this star-quality phenomenon.

For instance, last month, he mesmerized and gave Sarah Harris, host of The Project, a rosy-cheeked tizzy. He worked his magic with the finesse of a maestro, making laser-focused eye contact and using a voice that seemed to channel Elvis Presley himself—all without revealing too much about his game.

Austin Butler’s Unstoppable Charm: A Reporter’s Confession

The way Austin Butler charms the audience, leaving even seasoned interviewers like Sarah Harris blushing and flustered, is truly something to behold.

During a June interview on The Project, the Elvis star, 32, effortlessly enchanted his way into Harris’ heart with his smoldering gaze, gravelly voice, and thoughtful questions. Despite evading most of her inquiries, Butler’s rizz was undeniable, causing Harris to admit he had a “very piercing gaze”. She added:

You do this thing where you look into people’s souls… I’m getting it now.

Butler met Harris’ gaze and replied:

This exchange quickly went viral, with fans on social media agreeing that Butler’s star power is indisputable. The actor has been in the entertainment industry for years, but it was his role as Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s acclaimed biopic that truly catapulted him to stardom.

Let’s read a few fans’ comments (via YouTube/The Project):

The Great Gatsby & Elvis director, Luhrmann, who saw Butler’s potential from the start, earlier predicted that the actor would surprise audiences with his talent (see news.com.au). The latter’s film, The Bikeriders, was recently released; it also starred Tom Hardy.

Austin Butler’s Forthright Thoughts on Working with Tom Hardy 

Although Austin Butler and Tom Hardy’s relationship in The Bikeriders is literally ride-or-die, the former was not sure what to anticipate from the Venom star when they first met in person. 

The Bikeriders' original December 1, 2023, theatrical release was postponed due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike.

You never know when you meet your heroes if you’re going to get along. 

Despite Butler’s initial reservations about meeting Hardy, he later found himself enraptured by the latter’s humor and unique wit. 

And Tom makes me laugh harder than almost anyone in this world.

The Bikeriders’ original December 1, 2023, theatrical release was postponed due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike. The film, directed by Jeff Nichols, is set in the 1960s and also stars Mike Faist, Michael Shannon, Damon Herriman,  Boyd Holbrook, Beau Knapp, Karl Glusman, Toby Wallace, and Norman Reedus. 

Revving up expectations and shredding all doubts, Austin Butler and Tom Hardy’s magnetic bond in The Bikeriders promises to wheel us into the gritty, high-energy world of motorcycle club loyalty and brotherhood.
