While speaking to the publication at the Monday, June 17, premiere of his movie in Los Angeles, the Oscar nominee noted, “All I was thinking about was the bike, though. I just wanted to make sure that it was OK.”

Austin plays Benny in the film, which takes place in the 1960s and follows the Chicago motorcycle club known as the Vandals MC. Although the club begins on a more benign note in the movie, it gradually becomes a crime syndicate.

The Elvis star further noted that his father, David Butler, appreciated the movie because he’s a fellow motorcycle enthusiast.

“My dad rode motorcycles, so I think … It’s been cool to get to talk about my dad a lot recently because he gave me that first love of motorcycles,” Austin added.

Following the L.A. premiere, Austin attended an after-party with his girlfriend, Kaia Gerber, whom he’s been dating since late 2021.
