Taron Egerton cannot escape reviews for “Rocketman”.
The 29-year-old actor starred as iconic singer-songwriter Elton John in the new film. “Rocketman” received positive reviews following its May release, with particular praise towards Egerton’s performance.
Nonetheless, the actor tells Jimmy Kimmel he likes to stay away from reviews: “I try and avoid reviews, but Elton sends me them everyday. Everyday. It’s the same title every time, ‘And another one.'”
Egerton explains how the legendary singer is a huge fan of the film and “absolutely broke down” the first time he saw it.
“Rocketman” premiered at Cannes on May 16 and in the UK on May 22. It will premiere in North America on May 31. The film stars Egerton alongside Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard.
