Both Elton John and Bernie Taupin were moved to tears while watching the new Elton biopic Rocketman, which opens next Friday, May 31st. Elton and Bernie talked about the effect the movie had on them both: "(Elton John): I never thought in my 73rd year, that I'd be sitting here in Cannes with a film coming out. To be honest with you? I was blown away. I was very moved -- and I cried the first time I saw it, and I cried a lot this time. (Bernie Taupin): It was a wonderful experience and I echo Elton's feelings 100 percent. I mean, it was very emotional. There were a coupe of scenes in it where I was quietly sobbing (laughs) to be quite honest."

Elton John's one-time fiancee Linda Hannon appeared on Good Morning Britain and spoke about her romance with Elton, who in 1970 suddenly broke off their engagement -- only months before scoring his first international hit with "Your Song."

Hannon -- who is not featured in the new biopic -- said that she would love to reconnect with Elton after all these years, explaining, "I am very happy for him. I never believed he would become the superstar that he is. I would like to hear from him. I don't know what I would say to him. But I would like to see him. There's no resentment, and there's certainly no bitterness. It would be a joyous meeting if we did meet, I'm sure." Elton John and Bernie Taupin chronicled Elton's breaking things off with Hannon in the 1975 classic "Someone Saved My Life Tonight."

Hannon went on to recall, "We were together for almost two years. I was in love and I think he was too. The relationship was going smooth. Everything was going very quickly. I went off to the antique shop and got my ring because he had no money. His mother had ordered the wedding cake -- and it's true what the song says, he came back at 4 a.m. and tells me it's all over. And that was the last time I ever saw him."

Hannon, who's now 75 and living in Dallas, added, "I was kind of devastated because we planned so much for the wedding and then all of a sudden he says 'sorry, it's all over.' Sometimes I wonder if he has forgotten about me. I was disappointed not to be in the movie."
