Austin Butler is looking back on his time as a young actor.

The now 31-year-old has acted most of his life and is now getting major attention, including an Oscar nomination thanks to his latest role as Elvis Presley.

“I am grateful I started young because it allowed me a lot of time to make mistakes. I had so many years of really bad acting,” he told People. “And I still have so much to learn, but that’s what really excites me about acting is that you, it’s like anything, you can improve, and you can get better. It excites me to think about 10 years from now how I will have grown and how you can continually try to find more truth.”

If you missed it, Austin has recently revealed that when he was younger, he looked to have a career like this actor, who also started out at a young age.
