Taron Egerton Opens Up About Working With Kevin Spacey, Calls Him An 'Audacious Flirt'

Taron Egerton has spoken out about Kevin Spacey, revealing the disgraced actor is an “audacious flirt” but was never “inappropriate” with him.

While recently promoting his new film Robin Hood, the 29-year-old actor opened up about starring in the unsuccessful film Billionaire Boys Club with Kevin: “In some respects the movie didn’t turn out as strong as it could have done. That’s me being totally candid. There was a lot of jargon about investments and figures.An audience doesn’t go to the cinema for that, they go for character arc.”

“It didn’t quite come together in the way it should have. Which is really disappointing and horrible for all the talented people who worked on that film,” Taron continued (via ET). “And then there was Kevin Spacey’s involvement. He was never inappropriate with me. There’s a fine line, though, isn’t there, between someone being an audacious flirt and being predatory? I thought he was the former. But it’s sad that his professional demise threw such a shadow over our film.”

“On the surface level, he’s flirty. He is not my first experience of a flirty older bloke,” Taron added. “Even from the age of 17 or 18, I’ve experienced that and I’ve never felt threatened by that, although [Spacey] obviously has made some people feel threatened, and that’s unacceptable.’”

    It’s been a year and Kevin has been charged with NOTHING. He’s a victim of gossip and the #metoo movement which has lost all credibility. I hope he makes a huge comeback because he is a GREAT actor. One of the finest.
