Taron Egerton Regrets Leaving Elton John 'Hanging' After Golden Globes Win

Taron Egerton exits the BBC studios in London on Friday afternoon (January 10).

The 30-year-old actor opened up in a new interview about not hugging Elton John after winning a Golden Globe award for playing the iconic singer in Rocketman.

“I do regret that,” he said. “I left Elton John hanging when I was winning an award for playing Elton John. But you know what, you aren’t in your right mind in that moment.”

“I haven’t had a great deal of practice at winning awards. I didn’t nail it but it was a great moment regardless.”

Taron added that he was forgiven by Elton: “Yes, he was fine. The rest of the award show we were holding hands beneath the table.”
