  • Austin Butler’s voice coach recently said that the actor’s “Elvis” accent could “be there forever.”

  • His ex, Vanessa Hudgens, responded to reports of this with one word via Instagram: “Crying.”

  • Hudgens once encouraged her ex-boyfriend to find way to play Elvis.

Austin Butler’s “Elvis” accent may be here to stay, and ex-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens is all shook up about it.

In an interview with ABC Gold Coast on Monday, one of Butler’s voice coaches, Irene Bartlett, contended the actor’s voice at Golden Globes was the real deal.

“What you saw in that Golden Globes speech, that’s him. It’s genuine, it’s not put on,” said Bartlett.

Barlett said she was unsure how long Butler may speak like the King of Rock and Roll but added his accent could “be there forever.”

“Crying,” Hudgens responded on Instagram on Thursday.

Hudgens and Butler dated for nearly decade, during which time Hudgens encouraged him to find way to play Elvis Presley in a film.

“So I was looking at lights. There was an Elvis Christmas song on the radio, and I was with friend of mine, and I was singing along, and my friend kind of looked over at me and goes, ‘You’ve got to play Elvis,'” Butler recalled during a roundtable interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I said, ‘Oh, that’s such long shot.'”

Butler added: “Then couple of weeks later, I was playing the piano. I never really sang for any of my friends or anything. That same friend was there, and I was playing the piano. She said, ‘I’m serious. You’ve got to figure out how you can get the rights to a script.'”
