Riley Keough is cherishing the memory of her late mother Lisa Marie Presley. The actress who is the eldest child of the singer in a recent interview of Vanity Fair’s latest issue opened up about her last meeting with her mother at the post-Golden Globes party in January to celebrate Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis film. Lisa Marie passed away at the age of 54 on January 12 just days after the party. Let’s see what she had revealed.
Riley Keough said remember thinking about how beautiful she looked
The 34-year-old said of the final encounter with her mother, “We had dinner. That was the last time I saw her. I remember thinking about how beautiful she looked, and that was my strongest memory of the dinner.”
Moreover, she said she wanted her to be remembered as “one of a kind.”
Later on she shared, “She was just so unapologetically herself in every circumstance, and so strong. The life she had was not easy, and the treachery she endured and the lack of real love and real friends.… She definitely had some great friends and relationships in her life, but I don’t think she really ever had.… People were just coming for her since she was born—wanting something from her and not being totally authentic. She had to develop very thick skin. She was a very powerful presence and extremely loving and extremely loyal and sort of a lioness — a fierce woman, and a really wonderful mother. I think that would be my summary because I’m her daughter. She was the best mom.”
Prior to the interview, the Daisy Jones & The Six star become the owner of Graceland (her grandfather Elvis Presley’s Tenn. home), and the heir of her mother’s estate.
