Elton John and his husband David Furnish were overcome with emotion at the premiere of Rocketman at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (16May19).

Taron Egerton, who plays the Candle in the Wind hitmaker in the musical biopic, opened up about the couple's response to the film during a radio interview on BBC Radio 2's The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on Monday.

The star, who sat between British actor-turned-filmmaker Dexter Fletcher and songwriter Bernie Taupin, confessed he focused a lot of his attention on watching Elton and David during the screening.

"Dexter and I watched it from a 45-degree angle to watch Elton and David," the 29-year-old shared. "They were grabbing and squeezing each other’s knees. They were crying. (It was) really emotional. It’s the spirit of their life."
