With the new Elvis biopic now in full swing, it's no surprise that Priscilla Presley has some involvement with the creative process. The 72-year-old tells Closer Weekly that she's had a "hands-on role" in the movie starring Austin Butler as Elvis Presley. As a result, she has nothing but great things to say about the director, Baz Luhrmann. \u201cI have been involved with Baz,\u201d she says. \u201cHe has come to my home and he has been emailing me. In fact, we\u2019re going to be having another lunch at my home. He\u2019s keeping me on top of everything. It\u2019s been wonderful. He is a genius.\u201d Priscilla has a small creative role in the new Elvis biopic Elvis and Priscilla Presley \/ Uncredited\/AP\/Shutterstock While Priscilla does confirm that she's had a hands-on role in the biopic, it is a small role. Still, she admits that the biopic will be a Hollywood version of her ex's legacy. With that answer, a lot of movie junkies and critics probably have an idea of what to expect. \u201cI\u2019m not getting involved with any kind of telling him what to do or how to do it or suggestions,\u201d she explains. \u201cNo, no. I think this will be very stylized, very different.\u201d Priscilla LOVES Tom Hanks\u00a0 as Colonel Tom Parker Tom Hanks \/ REUTERS\/Mario Anzuoni One of the first people to be in the biopic was Tom Hanks for the role of Colonel Parker, Elvis's long-time yet controversial manager. Priscilla is sure to praise Tom's portrayal of Parker in the film. Priscilla also reveals that a lot of the plot in the film will center around Colonel Parker. \u201cTom Hanks can pretty much capture anybody as far as his acting ability and how professional he is and how deep and deeply involved he gets with the character,\u201d she says. \u201cI\u2019m extremely pleased. I think that it\u2019ll be very good.\u201d Elvis Presley and Colonel Tom Parker \/ GAB Archive\/Redferns\/Getty Images It's been 42 years since Elvis's death and Priscilla admits that she doesn't ever stop thinking about him. \u201cHe never really goes out of my mind,\u201d she tells news outlets. \u201cI mean, having his grandchildren and my daughter, just looking at them, I already see little bits of him.\u201d She continues to praise her late husband, \u201cI\u2019m still living somewhat the life in many ways....
