How Austin Butler’s Dad Helped Him Prepare For His Role In ‘The Bikeriders’

Austin Butler looked stylish at the Los Angeles premiere of “The Bikeriders” on June 17, and he had a little bit of help from his partner Kaia Gerber. “I was trying to figure out what to wear tonight and she said to wear this one, so I went with it,” he told Access Hollywood. The role in the upcoming film was a long time coming for Austin. His dad taught him how to ride a motorcycle when he was a teen and at the premiere he told Access how that helped him for this role. “It planted a seed in my mind at a young age of loving motorcycles and then I got to do it,” he said. The “Dune: Part 2” star also revealed if he has any similarities to his “The Bikeriders” character. “I mean, you could only work with yourself, so you’re just trying to find different parts of yourself. He’s definitely a part of me,” Austin said. “The Bikeriders” hit theaters June 21.
