Harry Styles, Ansel Elgort and Miles Teller were also considered for the role, but director Baz Luhrmann believed The Carrie Diaries actor was best suited for the part.

The director told Deadline, "I knew I couldn’t make this film if the casting wasn’t absolutely right, and we searched thoroughly for an actor with the ability to evoke the singular natural movement and vocal qualities of this peerless star, but also the inner vulnerability of the artist."

He continued, "Throughout the casting process, it was an honour for me to encounter such a vast array of talent. I had heard about Austin Butler from his stand-out role opposite Denzel Washington in The Iceman Cometh on Broadway, and through a journey of extensive screen testing and music and performance workshops, I knew unequivocally that I had found someone who could embody the spirit of one of the world’s most iconic musical figures.”

There's little we love more in this life than salivating over engagement rings, so props to Miles Teller who gave us ample opportunity to do so when he proposed to girlfriend Keleigh Sperry in recent days.

The Whiplash star got down on one knee while on safari with Keleigh at the weekend, and this ring has to be seen to be believed.

Celebrating her sister's engagement, Christie Sperry York uploaded a selection of photos documenting the big moment, and we're struggling to take our eyes off this piece of jewellery.

"These two got engaged while on an African Safari over the weekend!" Christie announced in a post which has been liked hundreds of times so far.

 

How sweet it is to be loved by you

"Can't believe the last Sperry girl is engaged! Love both of you guys to pieces and so incredibly happy for this new chapter in your love story!"

"Now come home so we can celebrate," Christie added.

Praise for the ring has rolled in, with one Instagram user writing: "And NASA thought there was a solar eclipse today….still guessing what that light is!"

Miles, who is perhaps best known for his roles in Fantastic Four and War Dogs, has been in a relationship with Keleigh since 2013.

Ok so you might not be familiar with who Miles Teller is exactly, but he's best known for playing the lead role in Whiplash, an Oscar winning movie about drumming. 

However, turns out Miles is a bit of a douche and the good people of the Internet are not impressed. 

The headline of the article: "Miles Teller Is Young, Talented, and Doesn't Give a Rat's Ass What You Think" was our first indication that there might be something a bit arrogant about the whole thing, and my god were we right. 

According to the magazine Esquire Miles is on a "quest for greatness" which apparently involves a bit of "di*keshness" too. 

Some of the best quotes from the article include: 

"You're sitting across from Miles Teller at the Luminary restaurant in Atlanta and trying to figure out if he's a d**k. 

You've just told him, by way of making conversation, that according to legend the champagne coupe in your hand is shaped like Marie Antoinette's left breast, and he tells you the highball glass is modeled after his c**k. Then he tells the waitress the same thing"

In fairness to him, he's done his fair share of good work so far in career including this summer's Fantastic Four and the Divergent series.

The part of the interview that has really got on people's nerves though is when he starts to explain how he is better looking than people think he is.  

"I was thinking about that today, how I probably think I'm better-looking than the public thinks I am," he says with a laugh, like it's funny that he's willed himself into a higher tier of male beauty through limitless confidence. "

If he plans on becoming the next Shia LaBeouf, he's right on track.

The Oscars red carpet is a cut-throat place as E! host Ryan Seacrest proved yesterday in no uncertain terms!

Ryan was scouting for celebrities to interview before the ceremony when Naomi Watts' publicist all but pushed the actress in his direction, saying, "Ryan, I have Naomi!"

The host clearly didn't deem poor Naomi famous enough though, as he shunned her in favour of Whiplash star Miles Teller, shaking his head at Naomi's publicist as he did so.

Ouch!

Ryan must have felt bad later on, as he did come back to Naomi for a chat, asking her about (what else?) her pre-Oscars diet.

Although Naomi had been pictured on Instagram just hours before holding up a homemade frittata, she admitted that she hadn't eaten much of anything that day. "'I’m hungry on days like today because you usually have starved yourself," she said. Well… at least she's honest!

 

Oscars count down #Naomiwatts #fritatta game is tight …. Look out for it on the #redcarpet today #shhhhh

Despite Ryan's awkward snub earlier in the evening, Naomi's Oscars look went down a storm, with her Armani cut-out gown earning her a place on many of last night's Best Dressed lists:

Although she was not up for any awards herself, Naomi's recent film Birdman came away with the gong for Best Picture – so all in all not a bad night!
