Taron Egerton Opens Up About 'Rocketman's Backlash From The LGBTQ Community

Taron Egerton looks so handsome on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue, available now.

Here’s what the 29-year-old Rocketman actor had to share with the mag:

On backlash from the LGBTQ community on a straight actor playing Elton John: “I have spoken to gay people for whom it’s not a problem, and I’ve spoken to gay people for whom it is a problem. I completely understand. But for my part, I’m an actor, and I did not get into acting to just play people like me. You have to draw the line somewhere, and I don’t want to live in a world where straight people play straight people and gay people play gay people.”

On kissing Richard Madden in the film: “For me, kissing a man onscreen is no less appealing than kissing a woman onscreen. I’m not in any way repulsed by the male form. It’s an uncomfortable thing regardless of who you’re with — it makes no difference as to your sexual preference.”

On rumors he will play James Bond: “I have a spy franchise. I don’t know if anyone needs two.”

'Rocketman' Stars Pose for 'GQ' Photoshoot!

Rocketman‘s Taron Egerton, Richard Madden, and Jamie Bell are featured in the brand new issue of GQ magazine (which features Keanu Reeves on the cover).

In the interview, the trio spoke about some of Elton John‘s biggest hits (Rocketman is a biopic with Taron playing the role of Elton).

Taron spoke about “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from The Lion King, saying, “Like many people of my age, The Lion King was a huge thing. I watched it over and over and over. At the time, my mother and I were living in a bungalow on the isle of Anglesey, which is an island off the north coast of Wales. It’s quite remote. You have to cross a very beautiful expanse of water over a bridge to get to it. We’d moved there from the North of England. It was probably a couple of years after my parents had separated. I remember it being this sort of adventurous time in our lives, where we were off in this new place. And that was a big, fairly formative piece of film in my life. It was one of those things that stick out as being one of the first things I really fell in love with.”

Taron Egerton Jokingly Slams Richard Madden on Instagram

Taron Egerton had a little fun with his Rocketman co-star Richard Madden today on Instagram.

Taron posted a photo of the pair on set and began his caption, “I have been dead lucky in the sense that I have great family and the most amazing friends. Most of those people have been in my life for a long time. It isn’t often a new person like that comes along. When they do it’s really special.”

Then, Taron joked, “@maddenrichard is NOT one of those people. He is horrible. This photo was taken on his last day of filming on @rocketmanmovie . I was so relieved that he was finished and I didn’t have to look at him or talk to him any more; I couldn’t stand another moment in his company. He was jealous and bitter because my hair was better than his and I have more followers on Instagram.”

FYI: Taron is clearly joking, as Richard actually has over 2 million followers while Taron is just shy of a million. And their hair is just a little different in the below photo!

If you missed it, Taron recently spoke about filming sex scenes for Rocketman with Richard.

Pictured inside: Richard heading out for a hike on Friday (April 26) in Los Angeles.
