DID ELTON JOHN HIT ON TARON EGERTON?
Sir Elton is feeling frisky these days — and maybe longing to be the younger man he once was! He seems more than pleased with the choice of the actor who portrayed him in Rocketman, Taron Egerton. In fact, when the young new star met the legend behind the biopic for the first time, Elton made him blush with his saucy salutation. “We were filming the wedding scene for [the 2014 film] Kingsman and he said if he were five years younger, it would be me that he was marrying.” Did Taron have a retort for the flirty remark? “I think I just mumbled and went red,” Taron told Star. “I was very nervous. For the first few times I met him, he made me blush. He doesn’t do that anymore because I’m used to it.”
