Please enjoy these pretty pictures of Taron Egerton & Richard Madden in Cannes

"Rocketman" Red Carpet At The 72nd Annual Cannes Film Festival

I don’t have much to say here other than “enjoy these pretty photos of Taron Egerton and Richard Madden.” Thursday was devoted to the photocall and premiere for Rocketman at the Cannes Film Festival. Rocketman is the authorized bio-pic of Elton John, with a focus on his childhood, early fame and his 1970s drug and alcohol abuse. Taron plays the young Elton, and Elton and David Furnish were on hand during the filming of Rocketman, and they produced the film as well. They were happy to come out for the Cannes premiere too. Once you see Taron and Elton stand side-by-side, you really get it. Taron absolutely looks like a young Elton.

Fashion-wise, Taron really killed it. Taron wore a brown and blue patterned Etro suit for the photocall – coordinating with Elton’s blue suit perfectly – and then he wore Tom Ford for the premiere. Tom Ford made him a silver-grey velvet tuxedo jacket which just looks great. Richard Madden went for white Armani tuxedo jacket and he looked seriously foxy. Two beautiful men.

Can we also give David and Elton some props? They totally had a hand in casting decisions and not only is Taron a great choice for Elton, the choice of Richard Madden for one of Elton’s manager and lover John Reid is just… a good choice.

    Richard Madden… yes.

    • Original T.C. says:

      He just gives me all the tingles. Hawt!!! Thanks for the present Kaiser.

    • Caroline says:

      Bodyguard on Netflix. yaaaaaasssssss 🤤

    • mom2two says:

      Another yes from me. Richard is gorgeous. He would have been my ideal Batman but since it looks like the MCU snapped him up, it wasn’t going to happen anyway.

      Hope Rocketman does well. The cast is talented and they all seem lovely.

  2. Becks1 says:

    Oh. Good morning. Those are some pretty pictures.

  3. mia girl says:

    I’ve only watched that John Lewis & Partner’s Elton John origin story holiday commercial a thousand times so I cannot wait to see this movie!!!

    • SM says:

      Yes! It was such touching short film.
      As for these two, I will take Richard please. I am not sure what is that about Taron but I find his face very weird. Maybe it’s the brows.

  4. Amaryis says:

    I’ll have one of each, please.

  5. Lightpurple says:

    Elton and Taron worked together on Kingsman: The Golden Circle. So, Elton knew who he was choosing. They seem to have a very good relationship.

  6. Div says:

    For some reason that white streak in Richard Madden’s hair is damn sexy.

    • The Dot says:

      It really is. It’s working for him.

    • tempest prognosticator says:

      Oh, yeah, the white streak seals the deal.

      I can’t get over how much Elton looks like my Aunt Beverly. Uncanny.

    • Lizzie says:

      for every reason. my lord he is handsome. that is a fine head of hair.

      • Kateeeee says:

        Is it hair makeup though? It doesn’t appear to be white during the daytime call, but maybe I just can’t see it clearly. In any event, those are two handsome gentlemen.

        The movie itself looks great to me. Can’t wait.

      • xdanix says:

        @Kateeeeee It’s not hair makeup, it’s natural. He’s had it since he was a kid, I believe- he just dyes it a lot for promo tours and roles. It’s not really visible in the photo call pictures above, but it was very visible in others- I think it’s just the lighting and angles.

    • Cay says:

      I have one too, and I thought it just made me look old. I’ll try to think of it as sexy from now on.

  7. Mia4s says:

    Wow, they look great. And good for the actors and filmmakers for making an R rated film and embracing the gay content and romance. Unlike the cowards who made Bohemian Rhapsody. Ugh, it’s more pathetic everyday that Malek won an Oscar for that SNL sketch. 🙄

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      I had zero interest in seeing Bohemian Rhapsody despite being a big Freddy Mercury fan (the trailers looked bad, the director is on my black list, etc.). But I’m totally there for Rocketman!

  8. Jenns says:

    Richard Madden should’ve played Jon Snow.

  9. minx says:

    I have to laugh at Richard Madden and Aiden Gillen (Bo Rhap) portraying John Reid. How flattering for him!

  10. Lucy says:

    Thanks for this. This year I realized I really missed Richard in GoT. Also, I absolutely love his hair. Gray streaks are hotttt!!!

    • Becks1 says:

      I don’t think I really appreciated him in GOT until I started rewatching the first season, and now I’m like “oh heyyyyyyy there.”

  11. Harryg says:

    Taron Egerton, yay! Taron Egerton for Bond!
    Both are cute.

  12. Gail says:

    These pics, an article on Margo Martindale, and a delightful video of Leslie Mann and Brendan Fraser?? My day is starting on an all-time high — you do the Lord’s work Celebitchy!!!

  13. Lex says:

    Holy moly. Adding to the buzz bank

  14. Tangie says:

    I always thought they were the same person kinda like Amy Adams and Isla Fischer. Ha!!!

  15. Miss M says:

    Robb Stark! 😍

  16. schmootc says:

    So very pretty. Sigh. Can’t wait for the movie to come out. I swear I’ve watched the trailer at least a dozen times.

  17. dommyluc says:

    Richard Madden standing there in that white tuxedo just screams, “I am the new James Bond, bitches!”

  18. LahdidahBaby says:

    Omg, this post makes my DAY. I’m dying to see this film, DYYYYYYYYYING!!

  19. Starkiller says:

    I guess I’m the only one, who thinks they look like a pair of smug assholes. Don’t find Madden particularly attractive, but he is a fine actor. Edgerton, is straight-up unfortunate looking.

    • Shirurusu says:

      Haha living up to your name there starkiller! 😂 I’ll add that I think both men are fine as hell but all the suits in this post need to be burned by GOT dragons, especially Tarons silver slipper looks like a moomoo dress that shrunk in the laundry or one of those pillows that make your hair electric!
