Riley Keough, the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough, has had quite a life. She grew up in the spotlight as one of the child stars of “Flipper” and went on to star in several other TV shows before moving on to movies like “The Runaways” and “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
But while she started out as a model who just wanted to get away from her famous mother—Ellen DeGeneres once said she looked like “a young version of Elvis Presley”—she now seems comfortable with her celebrity status. In fact, she recently revealed that some aspects of fame are actually beneficial: “People stop you on the street all day long saying how much they love this or how much they love that movie or song — it’s very flattering. It makes me feel good about myself and my work.”
