Priscilla Presley has something to say about the upcoming biopic based on her late husband's life.

When asked by RadarOnline.com about who she wants to play her role in the film, the actress laughed, eventually revealing that if Lana Del Rey were, indeed, picked for the part, she would be okay with it.

“I like Lana a lot,” Priscilla, 74, said, hours after Radar broke the news that Lana is begging to play her in the biopic.

“Lana feels it’s a role she was born to play,” an insider told Radar. “She’s has her agent badgering Baz for months now, hoping to get her cast.”

Fans know Priscilla was married to the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, from 1967 to 1973 and had one daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, with him. He died four years later, from heart failure possibly related to a drug overdose. Austin Butler has been cast as Elvis in the film.

When asked by Radar if she believes Austin is the best actor for the role, Priscilla said “I don’t know.”
