Riley Keough Talks To Nylon About Being Elvis’ Granddaughter


Sometimes I forget that Riley Keough is even Elvis Presley‘s grandkid, but I bet she doesn’t!

The girl definitely has entertainment in her genes, and she definitely resembles the King in many lights. While it may seem difficult for her  to step out of his shadow, there is something she’s thankful for: that she doesn’t have The King’s last name.

The model-turned-actress daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and Danny Keough talked to NYLON magazine, saying:

The 26-year-old stunner says Elvis was “acknowledged and treated like what he is, which is a family member. It was never like, ‘He was very famous.’ I was aware of the legacy because I was around it growing up. We were always going to Graceland – but it’s never burdened me in any way really.”

“I didn’t have it as hard as my mom. I didn’t have his last name,” she adds. “There’s something about that … writing my name, it’s not Presley. That’s heavy.”

Despite her unique lineage, Riley says her mom tried to keep her grounded.

 was like, ‘I don’t want you growing up like another Hollywood celebrity daughter.’ She was so not about that life, you know? She didn’t really put attention on it,” Keough explains. “It was there. We’d get photographed doing stuff, but I didn’t see a tabloid until I was 15.”

“I wanted to grow up before I started acting,” she adds, explaining why she waited to enter the entertainment biz. “I wanted to live my life a bit. I also really don’t like attention on me, so it was kind of coming to terms with all of that.”


Not sure how much time she got to have as an adult- she started acting and modeling at like, 18. Still, she does seem like she has a good head on her shoulders and/or isn’t completely insufferable.

Riley Keough Got Hitched!

67th Annual Cannes Film Festival - De Grisogono Party

Sorry Elvis Presley fanboys- Riley Keough is off the market!

The actress, 25, married her fiance Ben Smith-Petersen on Wednesday in Napa, California.

Some high-profile guests including Kristen Stewart, Zoe Kravitz, Dakota Johnson, Cara Delevingne, the bride’s Mad Max: Fury Road costars Abbey Lee and Courtney Eaton all gathered to celebrate the union of the actress and stuntman.

The bride and groom first met while filming Mad Max: Fury Road in 2012 and Smith-Petersen confirmed back in August that the couple were in fact engaged.

This is the first marriage for Keough, though she was previously engaged to Alex Pettyfer in March 2012, and moved on real quick to Ben Smith-Petersen, that same year. Guess when you know true love, you gotta jump on it.

So happy for this gorgeous couple!

Riley Keough is Engaged! So Definitely NOT Making Out With Rob Pattinson…

67th Annual Cannes Film Festival - amfAR's 21st Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Riley Keough, Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, has found someone to ‘love her tender.’  Keough is engaged to her stuntman boyfriend, Ben Smith-Petersen, who announced the news on his Facebook page earlier today.  Smith-Petersen posted a picture of the two snuggling and Keough proudly displaying her new hardware.  He captioned it, “So that happened.”

According to sources:

“They’re very serious. They’re perfect for each other. Great people.  So happy for them. They joked about having a dog ‘baby’ together now and how it was just a matter of time until they made it official.”

The happy couple met on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road.  This is the second engagement for Keough, who was previously engaged to Alex Pettyfer, her costar in Magic Mike.  The two split- but had reportedly reconnected – and were spotted at a premiere for The Butler last August.  She had also dated Ryan Cabrera, and there had been rumors of her hooking of with Robert Pattinson.  Keough vehemently denied the rumors however, as she is friends with and costarred in The Runaways with Pattinson’s ex- Kristen Stewart.

Anyway- Keough is with Smith-Petersen now- and a happy life and congratulations to them both!

Have Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence Split?

Jack The Giant Slayer Premieres in Hollywood

X-Men stars, Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence started dating in 2011, split briefly in 2013, and then rekindled their adorable romance on the set of the X-Men sequel later that year.  Lawrence plays the role of the very blue and sexy Mystique, while Hoult plays the mutant Beast.  Anyway.  During their split back in 2013, there were rumors that Hoult was putting the moves onto model/actress Riley Keough, also known as Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter, also known as Elvis Presley’s grand daughter.

Well.  According to Page Six – the Keough and Hoult were spotted canoodling at a party in NYC on Wednesday night- so now everyone suspects that the X-Men cuties may have hit another rough patch.

‘They were sitting arm-in-arm in a booth with Adam Lambert and Charl Brown,’ a witness told the site.

Another source observed that the duo ‘looked cozy,’ though Nicholas was also chatting with ‘a bunch of other girls.’

Lawrence has spoken of her relationship with Hoult in the past:

‘When we’re busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn’t text back or call. Life’s super-busy,’ she told Marie Claire.

‘Obviously you know what they’re doing, and you trust them. We’re so young that it would almost be like if we lived in the same city, what would happen? We’d be living together.

‘At least this way he’s in the same boat as I am: We can go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other.’

I always thought Lawrence and Hoult were super cute together.  But I guess they are both young, successful and super busy- so those are all challenges.  As for Keough- she has had her share of famous boyfriends- dating Ryan Cabrera for a couple of years, followed by Alex Pettyfer for a couple of years, and most recently, stuntman Ben Smith Petersen.  She was also rumored to be dating Rob Pattinson following his split with Kristen Stewart.
