Spill the tea!

By now you’ve surely seen Rocketman, the biopic about Elton John that has made $167 million worldwide and reignited your love for songs like I’m Still Standing and Your Song.

The film has been critically acclaimed because of its musical numbers, costume designs and of course, Taron Egerton’s incredible performance.

In Sydney, Egerton sat down with Smallzy to talk all about the film and how Elton John’s private diaries helped him prepare for the role.

According to Egerton, the diary entries were “hilariously pedestrian”, but they did the job!

Egerton has since formed a great relationship with Elton John and talked to Smallzy all about what happened when John first watched his portrayal on screen.

Yikes, that’s a lot of pressure!

Egerton also performed on stage with John at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and says that it is definitely a moment he will never forget.

He told Smallzy all about his nerves onstage and how crazy his life has become since the film.

The big question everyone wants to know is: did Egerton experience any glitter-related-injuries on set?

Those costumes are AMAZING.

What a throwback.

“I’m building on what she created.”
