PARIS, May 16 (Reuters) - Sporting a sequinned “EJ” rocket on his lapel, Elton John beamed his way down the Cannes red carpet on Thursday to see the premiere of his own biopic - “Rocketman”.
The movie, starring Taron Egerton, tracks the singer’s early days. Although not competing for awards, it was still one of the most anticipated screenings of the film festival.
Accompanied by his husband David Furnish, John posed for photographers alongside the cast in heart-shaped, jewel-encrusted sunglasses. (Reporting by Sarah White; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
