‘Our love was electrifying, he wanted to marry me,’ Elvis said of his and Ann Margret’s affair.

During the filming of Viva Las Vegas, ELVIS PRESLEY and ANN-MARGRET shared an “electrifying passion.”

“When Elvis slammed his pelvis forward, mine slammed forward as well,” she explained.

They shared a devil within, but they also deeply loved each other, talked about marriage, and remained close until the end.

They were two of the world’s hottest stars, equally talented and enthrallingly charismatic.

On the sets of almost all of his films, the King was used to chasing flings, but something unusual happened while filming Viva Las Vegas in 1964.

He was used to having the upper hand both on and off camera, but the Swedish beauty was a match for him in every way.

“She’s the female you,” one of Elvis’ friends explained when a befuddled and besotted Elvis asked what was going on.

Ann-Margret was the only co-star who shared top billing with Elvis Presley in any film, and she was also the only one who was invited to his funeral.

His father Vernon asked her to represent the Presley family on a 1977 TV special shortly after the star’s death, and he sent her flowers until the day he died.

The actress later revealed that their bond was based on their intimate and unique connection, not just physical attraction.

“We both felt a current, an electricity that went straight through us,” she said of their instantaneous and overwhelming connection.

It would become an uncontrollable force…

We had no idea we shared a devil within us.

We were quiet, courteous, and cautious.

But once we got to know each other, I knew what was going to happen.

Also, Elvis.”

When they co-starred in 1964’s Viva Las Vegas, Ann-Margret was already a well-known singer and dancer, having made a global sensation in the 1963 film Bye, Bye, Birdie.

“We both had a visceral response to music,” she explained.

Elvis and I were both enthralled by music, which reawakened a smoldering repressed passion.

It was a strange, humiliating, amusing, inspiring, and wonderful sensation.

We saw virtual mirror images of each other as we moved our heads.

When Elvis slammed his pelvis forward, mine slammed forward as well.

I was down there with him when he dropped his shoulder.

I was already on my heels when he spun around.”
