|I NEVER THINK ABOUT GRANDFATHER ELVIS
February 18, 2016 - Aaj Kaal Times / Elvis Express Radio
She can stake claim to having what is arguably the most famous Grandfather in the World, and yet Riley Keough has declared that she never gives a thought about her mega-
famous grandfather, Elvis Presley.
The King's Granddaughter has been making a career for herself in the movies since 2010, but her life has always been in the limelight due to her famous Granddad. Now, aged 26,
the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley landed a big break toward worldwide fame with a supporting role in the Oscar-nominated film 'Mad Max: Fury Road', but in a recent interview,
Keough says that she still gets hassled by the fans of her grandfather, the King of Rock 'n Roll, and even on lesser occasions by fans of her one-time stepfather of just 20 months,
"People always ask me, 'How crazy is it that your grandpa was Elvis?'" she tells Esquire. "I always make them happy and say, 'Yeah, it's soooo crazy!' But actually, I don't think
about it, ever. The reality is I know as much about my grandpa as you'd know about a grandpa you never met."
Riley's grandfather died 12 years before she was born, and she insists she never had any interest in taking advantage of her family's fame-rich past, in fact says she’s pretty much
over the whole Elvis being a legend thing, and maybe you should be, too? She said.
