Elle Fanning is currently making the rounds at Cannes because she’s serving on the Cannes jury (the youngest person to do so, ever). That means she’s also got about 1.5 million costume changes to cover while she’s there, and not all of those are going to be winners. Best case scenario, your bad fashion will land you on a worst dressed list. Worst case scenario, it lands you on your ass because your dress was pulled too tight for your organs to function.
Last year Gotti was the toast of the Cannes International Film festival. OK, maybe calling it the toast is bit of an overstatement, but it was tolerated. So maybe the fact that Rocketman, the Elton John biopic starring lover of the gays Taron Egerton, received a standing ovation at its recent Cannes premiere shouldn’t be a surprise. I’m sure it’s a feel good movie, especially when you’re already feeling good off of free champagne and proximity to sequins. But Taron was moved to tears by the enthusiastic reception. And now his tearful reaction has gone viral on Twitter, much to James Van Der Beek’s relief.
