Priscilla and Elvis Presley’s story is one for the ages. The American musician married the Naked Gun star in 1967. In the course of their 6-year marriage, they had their fair share of tumultuous moments, some from which their marriage couldn’t recover.

They finally called it quits in 1973. But that doesn’t rob their story of its sheen in any way. Priscilla’s release will ensure that their story remains alive forever. Credit must be given to the protagonists for their efforts.

Jacob Elordi and Cailee Spaeny impressed one and all as Elvis and Priscilla. The Pacific Rim: Uprising star in particular has brought her A-game to the fore for this one. And it is no small part down to the help she had received from various sources.

The lady herself, Priscilla Presley, was by her side, letting the 25-year-old on how her story went. That too with utmost patience. Spaeny was surprised by how gracious the 78-year-old was with her time. One day in the course of their work, she had the strangest experience – listening to Elvis Presley in The Adventure of Ford Fairline star’s presence.

Cailee Spaeny shared this moment while in conversation with Hollywood Reporter. She said,

“When I was on the phone with Priscilla one time, we were speaking, and then Elvis came on her radio in the background… She [gasped], ‘Do you hear that?’ And I said, ‘What?’ And she said, ‘He’s on the radio.’ And then she put the phone up to the speaker.”

There was a stunned silence on the phone call. Gathering the courage to speak, the Mare of Easttown star asked Priscilla, “Does that happen a lot? Does he come up on your radio a lot?”

It was a very interesting moment for the On the Basis of S*x star indeed. She will never forget the fact that she got a sign from the Can’t Help Falling in Love singer while shooting the 2023 flick.
