Tom Cruise and his co-star Brad Pitt had to hang upside down for half an hour without a break to achieve a pale vampire look during the filming. Since vampires can't handle the sunlight, Interview with the Vampire was filmed at night, which took a toll on some cast members. Brad Pitt shared with Entertainment Weekly, 

"There are no windows in there. It hasn't been refabbed in decades. You leave for work in the dark – you go into this cauldron, this mausoleum – and then you come out, and it's dark. I'm telling you, one day, it broke me. It was like, 'Life's too short for this quality of life."

Let's take a closer look at this stunning photo of Elvis and his mother. Those who knew Gladys and Elvis all agreed the two were more intimate than your average mother and son. In his book, From Elvis In Memphis, Wolfson claimed their relationship was "sweet to the point of sickly.”

Elvis and his mother had a very tight bond and even had their own secret language with many pet names for each other and the things they both loved. It was challenging for anyone else to understand them, even Elvis's father often felt left out of their unbreakable bond. According to one of Elvis's love interests, he talked to Gladys in baby talk, even as an adult.
