Ansel Elgort Tries On His ‘Man Bun’ After Meeting Migos At Cannes Premiere

Ansel Elgort had just finished the red carpet at a Cannes premiere and was on his way to party, when he and a group of friends caught up with Migos rapper Offset at The Gold Bar. The 22-year-old actor and Offset, who plays Drai, one of the group’s rapper members, were able to meet briefly at the party after earlier getting their first-hand look at the Netflix series Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. The event also boasted performances by hip-hop heavyweights Cardi B and French Montana. Elgort was a big advocate of the streaming service, and shared a few more Instagram stories to encourage people to check out the show ahead of its May 15 premiere. He also used his profile to draw attention to the Time’s Up initiative of 2018, where he posted a photograph of his choice poster:

Elgort had walked the carpet in a throwback beard and ponytail, but soon changed into what he described as a “man bun” hairstyle. “I’m literally gonna go on camera talking about a reality show where I’m living as an adult,” he said. “It’s basically a very modern TV show with my sisters, grandmother and dogs.” Elgort said that he has completed his character arc on the show so far, and that he hadn’t seen Migos perform on the Fyre set until this week. “Well, actually my uncle was like, ‘Stop listening to them music — because they can’t fly anymore.’ We all fell asleep, but we pretended like we weren’t asleep. It was hilarious,” he said. While on the red carpet, Elgort said he didn’t feel any pressure on being an older brother to his three younger sisters, and that his age actually works for him. “I have a little bit of experience with girls in the music industry, so I’m a little less nervous,” he said. “I’m not intimidated by any of them. I’m just embracing the fact that they’re the leads.”
