The actor who is going to play Elton John in the upcoming biopic Rocketman told Attitude Magazine that Sir Elton’s relationships with his manager John Reid will be depicted explicitly, passionately and very, very emotionally, especially sex scenes, which he describes as ‘electric’ and ‘raw’. “The rawness of that experience, the fear of that experience, but also the joy of the experience of Elton’s first kiss… it’s electric, it’s exciting, your stomach is doing somersaults,” he explains, adding that he personally treated this scene and this story like it was his own first crush – he experienced the same affection. “We wanted to try to do that justice, and also at that point their relationship hasn’t broken down yet,” Egerton said about the first gay sex experience of his character. “They were falling in love and it’s beautiful because it should be. We didn’t want to play like they were a couple who were eventually going to fall apart, we wanted to play it like two guys in their early twenties who are falling in love and who are incredibly sexually attracted to each other. I don’t really know how much further we could have gone,” the actor says.
