Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber seemed, erm, happy to see each other at the Elvis Premiere at Cannes Film Festival.

The couple shared passionate kisses on the red carpet, seemingly unfazed by the crowds around them.

Austin, 30, and Kaia, 20, grabbed each other’s faces as they snogged, with the Elvis Presley actor then wrapping an arm around his girlfriend.

The actor looked totally dapper in a suit, while Kaia looked stunning in a red gown as they celebrated the release of the highly-anticipated movie, which is set to hit cinemas in June.

Austin, who’s starring in the upcoming Elvis biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann, was also joined by his co-stars, including Tom Hanks and Olivia DeJonge.

He also posed with Presley’s ex-wife Priscilla who, after the screening, was seen wiping away tears.

The film also received a 12-minute standing ovation and has so far impressed critics.

The biopic depicts the rock and roll musician as he goes from a young boy living in Memphis, Tennessee, and delivering his first performance, to international star.

Viewers will also get a glimpse into the intense press attention he faced and see Austin perform memorable hits including Jailhouse Rock, That’s All Right Mama and Unchained Melody to raucous audiences.

Later, the cast attended a star-studded after party, with Austin giving us his best Elvis smoulder and Baz stealing the show as he changed into an epic Elvis look complete with a huge collar.

Stars including Shakira, Kylie Minogue, Georgina Rodriguez, and Winnie Harlow also rocked up to walk the red carpet and get a first glimpse at the film.

After about three months of dating, Austin and Kaia went public with their relationship earlier this year, attending W Magazine’s annual Best Performances party ahead of the Oscars together.

The former Disney Channel star previously dated Vanessa Hudgens for nine years, before the pair called time on their relationship.

Vanessa is now dating Cole Tucker.
