The daughter of rock and roll legend writes, "I'll eat my own foot if he doesn't get an Oscar."

The daughter of Elvis Presley has approved Austin Butler's performance in Baz Luhrmann's upcoming Elvis biopic.

Her late son, Benjamin Keough, isn't alive to see Butler's portrayal of her father, Lisa Marie Presley says in an Instagram post. 

Since I am forever mourning the loss of my son, I haven't posted in quite some time 

Presley began her post. My heart and soul have been shattered into almost nothing by this hideous grief."

However, I must mention that I have seen Baz Luhrmann's movie Elvis twice 

Butler is perfect for the role, and Presley said, "I will eat my own foot" if he does not win the Oscar for his performance. 

" She added, "You can feel and see Baz's love, care, and respect for my father throughout the beautiful film, and I'm so heartbroken that my son can't see it. 

"I just can't express enough how much I love this film, and I hope you will too.
