Austin Butler’s Charm In A Red Carpet Interview Has People Weak In The Knees

Austin Butler’s Red Carpet Charm Leaves Fans Swooning

I’m officially adding “flirt” to Austin Butler’s resume.

Because he definitely had charming and playful energy at The Bikeriders Australian premiere on Thursday.

The actor was supposed to be interviewed by 7Bravo host Lucia Hawley (who happens to be Nicole Kidman’s niece), but instead of talking about himself or the film, he appeared more interested in talking about her.

He asked about her hometown.

Her interests.

There was also an exchange about how wet and dry they were despite the rain in Sydney, which I feel like I shouldn’t be watching, IDK.

When Lucia giggled and said she was supposed to be the one doing the interview, Austin sheepishly said, “I don’t like talking about myself” — and proceeded to ask her questions.

“What else can you tell me?” he said. “What are you interested in?”

“Art,” Lucia replied.

“Art? Do you paint yourself?” he wondered. “Um, no I don’t,” she answered, “but I like looking at them. Curating.”

“I wanna do that at some point,” Austin noted. “Where do you find your art?”

“I..I…I should probably jump into the questions, ‘cause this is my job,” Lucia said, laughing. Austin then responded, “Aw, okay, what do you want to talk about?”

People were seriously obsessed over the clip, taking to social media to share their thoughts.

“I don’t even like this dude like that but this had me giggling lol,” one fan wrote on Reddit, leading another to say, “[That’s] literally my reaction, this guy has never really been on my radar but hello.”

“He could charm the pants right off of me any time,” another fan agreed.

Someone else said, “woah, might need him actually 🙂‍↕️,” while a fifth fan wrote, “I saw someone say I’d be leaving this interview asking what are we 😭.”

This was art, if you ask me.
