Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann is renowned for putting together lavish and intricate films featuring gorgeous details, and that makes him pretty much the perfect person to create the new movie release Elvis. Austin Butler plays the titular music icon, and his performance in the film has been praised by fans. Interestingly, it sounds like the actor got some solid advice from none other than Luhrmann film vet Leonardo DiCaprio ahead of working with Luhrmann on his music-infused biopic.

While you’d be hard pressed to recognize the hair slicked, rhinestone clad Elvis actor as the Charles Manson cult member Tex Watson, Austin Butler did indeed play both characters who were based on real life people. As for the latter, he acted opposite Leonardo DiCaprio as the character in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood… and, at some point, Butler got some scary, yet sound advice from the A-lister about working with Baz Luhrmann. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Butler revealed that DiCaprio told him that Luhrmann was going to push him to his acting limits to find new abilities that he didn’t even know he possessed. Here’s how Butler relayed that advice:

Leo told me, ‘Baz is going to constantly keep you off balance, and it’s going to pull things out of you [that] you never knew you had inside you. That’s exactly the experience that I had.
