Nicolas Cage, Baz Luhrmann, Celebs Remember – The Hollywood Reporter

Jan 16, 2023

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, John Travolta, Nicolas Cage and more are paying tribute to Lisa Marie Presley, who died at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center on Thursday at 54.

Presley was rushed to the hospital earlier in the day after she experienced cardiac arrest in her Calabasas, California, home.

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” her mother, Priscilla, said in a statement. “She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.”

She will be laid to rest at Graceland next to her late son Benjamin Keough, said a rep for Presley’s daughter, Riley Keough. In July 2020, Benjamin died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound at age 27. She was also the mother of twins Harper and Finley.

Elvis star Austin Butler shared an emotional message about the loss of Presley, writing, “My heart is completely shattered for Riley, Finley, Harper and Priscilla at the tragic and unexpected loss of Lisa Marie. I am eternally grateful for the time I was lucky enough to be near her bright light and will forever cherish the quiet moments we shared. Her warmth, her love and her authenticity will always be remembered.”

In a statement, Cage, who was Presley’s third husband, said, “This is devastating news. Lisa had the greatest laugh of anyone I ever met. She lit up every room, and I am heartbroken. I find some solace believing she is reunited with her son Benjamin.”

Presley died only days after attending the 2023 Golden Globes in support of Elvis, Baz Luhrmann’s film about her iconic father, who is portrayed by Austin Butler. Presley had given her blessing to the film as a family member and had been gracious on the awards circuit in support of the project, which is getting awards buzz.

Luhrmann remembered Presley on Instagram Friday, sharing a photo of her with Butler. He wrote, “Over the last year, the entire Elvis movie family and I have felt the privilege of Lisa Marie’s kind embrace. Her sudden, shocking loss has devastated people all around the world. I know her fans everywhere join me in sharing prayers of love and support with her mother, Priscilla, and her wonderful daughters Riley, Finley and Harper. Lisa Marie, we will miss your warmth, your smile, your love.”

Speaking about the film on the Globes’ carpet, Presley told Entertainment Tonight that the movie “was truly mind-blowing. I really didn’t know what to do with myself after I saw it. I had to take five days to process it because it was so incredible and so spot-on and so authentic that, yeah, I can’t even describe what it meant.”

In a statement, Warner Bros. Pictures said, “We are deeply saddened by the passing of Lisa Marie Presley and send our condolences and sympathy to her children, family and people around the world who loved her. She was an invaluable partner and truly lovely person whom we will remember as a devoted mother, beloved daughter, and loving friend.”

Cary Elwes, who co-wrote 2016’s Elvis & Nixon, reflected on her loss as “heartbreakingly sad,” joining many on social media who have been sharing reactions and tributes. He wrote, “A sweet and gentle soul. We send our deepest, heartfelt condolences to Priscilla, Riley and her family and friends.”

“Lisa did not have an easy life, as some might think,” friend Leah Remini shared, noting that she was heartbroken and hopes she’s at peace, resting with her son and father.

Billy Corgan, who collaborated with Presley early in her career, tweeted an emotional message about how “there is heartbreak and then there is sorrow,” adding, “This would be sorrow and on more levels than I can count.”

Juliette Lewis shared a series of posts to her Instagram Story about the loss of Presley, writing that she was “beyond heart broken,” “Too much to say to feel. Processing… Heart aches for her family.”

PETA’s senior vp shared a statement after Presley’s death, writing, “Lisa Marie Presley was not only a talented singer-songwriter, loving wife and mother, but a friend to animals. Learning that an Elvis impersonator had named a chimpanzee after her and was exploiting him for profit, she successfully teamed up with PETA to get her namesake released to a sanctuary. And she didn’t stop there: Early in the pandemic, when shelters were in desperate need of foster families, Lisa Marie and her twin daughters set a wonderful example by opening their home and hearts to two dogs. Though the ‘Lights Out’ singer has passed away, her bright vision for animals will continue to inspire all of us at PETA.”

Got home late from seeing a show to hear the tragic news about Lisa Marie Presley. I had only met her a few times briefly. But I have to admit I felt a kinship with her. Not many people know what it’s like. I know she was a special person. My heart aches for Priscilla.— Seán Ono Lennon (@seanonolennon) January 13, 2023

Utterly devastated to learn of the hideously premature death of a surprisingly sweet, fierce, generous, talented and painfully vulnerable Lisa Marie Presley.
I will treasure you always in my heart girl. Thank you for your kindness. May you now be granted peace. Sx— Garbage (@garbage) January 13, 2023


Oh no. This is such horrible news. The entire world is sending love and prayers to Priscilla and Lisa Marie’s children right now. May it give you stregnth.— Diane Warren (@Diane_Warren) January 13, 2023

There is heartbreak and then there is sorrow. This would be sorrow and on more levels than I can count. Please send your prayers out for her family and children at this difficult time. I truly cannot find the words to express how sad this truly is. RIP @LisaPresley— William Patrick Corgan (@Billy) January 13, 2023

I had the chance to know @Cilla_Presley when I was on Dancing With the Stars and as a mother, I can’t imagine the pain she must be going through with the untimely passing of Lisa Marie. I have the image of little Lisa Marie growing up. RIP Lisa Marie Presley— Marlee Matlin (@MarleeMatlin) January 13, 2023

So sad about Lisa Marie Presley. Oddly I was just at Graceland yesterday and took this picture. The guide was telling us that sometimes she would have dinners in the dining room, and once she had a party for her friends in the plane named after her. Rip sweet soul.?️— Jennifer Tilly (@JenniferTilly) January 13, 2023

?Deepest sympathies to the family of #LisaMariePresley Much too young to have died. Only 54, same age as my mother when she passed. Condolences to her mother and surviving children. Tell the people you love …that you love them ✨— DeborahNorville (@DeborahNorville) January 13, 2023
