Roast: Vanessa Hudgens appears to be throwing shade at her ex-boyfriend Austin Butler after he got ruthlessly mocked over keeping his accent for Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic
Ex-flames: Vanessa and Austin were in a long-term relationship from 2011-2020
Fans were quick to notice that 34-year-old Hudgens replied underneath that she was ‘crying,’ perceived as crying with laughter at the jibe.
The post came from social media influencer , who boats nearly 40,000 followers on Instagram.
The joke is a reference to the over-the-top lengths that Lady Gaga went when campaigning for an Oscar nomination for her role in House of Gucci, which did not fare well for the pop singer.
His caption calls back to the way the A Star is Born actress was notoriously mocked for her subpar Italian accent while portraying Patrizia Reggiani.
At the time, a who worked on the film with her costar Salma Hayek noted that the New York-raised Gaga’s accent sounded ‘more Russian.’
And much like Butler, Gaga — real name Stefani Germanotta — insisted in a that she ‘lived as [Reggiani] for a year and a half. And I spoke with an accent for nine months of that.’
Coming to Butler’s defense shortly after his Golden Globe win, his voice coach Iren Bartlett said ‘What you saw in that Golden Globes speech, that’s him. It’s genuine, it’s not put on.’
‘I feel sorry people are saying that, you know, it’s still acting [but] he’s actually taken [the voice of Presley] on board,’ she said, adding that the change might be permanent: ‘I don’t know how long that will last, or if it’s going to be there forever.’
Fans have been confused about the voice change since filming for Elvis wrapped back in March 2021, nearly two years ago.
Irene further explained why Austin still sounds like he did in the movie: ‘Because of COVID shutdowns, he was working on it all the time and it’s difficult to switch off something you’ve spent so much focus [and] time on.’
