There were still rumors of a love affair between Elvis Presley and co-star Ann-Margret even after he got married to Priscilla. Priscilla wasn’t too happy about the rumors, of course, and kept Elvis honest.

In her book, Priscilla details how the press would not stop asking about the pair after Viva Las Vegas premiered. Elvis assured Priscilla that nothing was going on between them and Ann-Margret wasn’t his cup of tea.
