Elvis Presley was known first and foremost for his exceptional singing and songwriting, but he was also a popular actor as well. After shooting 13 movies, he signed on to film Viva Las Vegas opposite Ann-Margret. It is now known that the pair engaged in a passionate affair while they worked together. After about a year, the co-stars split up, prompting Elvis to return to his fiancée Priscilla Presley, and get married.

Ann-Margret and Elvis remained close friends for the remainder of his life, all the way until his death.

However, despite the support of close friends and family, the later years of Elvis' life were reportedly overshadowed with drinking and substance abuse.
