PRISCILLA PRESLEY SAYS SHE IS ‘SO NERVOUS’ ABOUT THE RECEPTION OF ‘PRISCILLA:’ Priscilla Presley spoke with The Hollywood Reporter recently about Priscilla, the forthcoming movie based on her 1985 memoir. “I’m so nervous because it’s my life,” she told the outlet. “The people who are watching, they’re living it with you, and you hope and pray that they get it. They get your feelings, your hurts, your sensitivity.” She also commented on the controversy surrounding her age when she met 24-year-old Elvis—as she was only 14 years old at the time—calling it “a different time” then. “When I saw the movie, I tried to separate myself and live it as if I was just a fan or just someone that’s wanting to see the movie,” she added. “At the end, I actually, I was quite emotional. Only being 14. You look back and you go, ‘Why me? Why am I here? Why am I driving in a limo, going through the gates of Graceland with Elvis?’ ”
