‘Kingsman’ Star Taron Egerton Might Have Just Come Out

Did Taron Egerton, the star of the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman, just come out?

That’s what fans are wondering after he posted a photo on his newly-launched Instagram account.

The post shows an unnamed young man with the simple caption, “Cutie. My boy (heart).”






Cutie. My boy

Now, this could be a ‘bromance’ moment. Or, the Kingsman star might be coming out in the most chill way possible.

Even though the Instagram account is only days old (there’s a total of just five posts), Egerton already has over 100,000 followers on the social media platform.

And for the most part, those fans were supportive of the news.

“He is adorable. But is someone coming out or just bromancing”

“I really hope this is your coming out happy for you”

“Omg my if Taron is gay, my dream finally came true lol”

“the gays have won”

One commenter wrote, “does that mean he’s got a boyfriend now,” and Egerton ‘liked’ the comment.

In another playful exchange, a fan asked Egerton to tag the young man in order to reveal his identity and he responded writing, “Nah, he’s mine and mine only.”

Some folks say the truth has been in front of us for a long time.



We're guessing we'll get a definitive answer sometime, but the bottom line is if Taron is coming out as gay or bisexual, good on him.

And if the post was just a bromance thing, good on Taron for being comfortable in his own skin.

Rocketman is set to hit theaters May 17, 2019. Check out the trailer below.

  1. Why is it that when a man

    Why is it that when a man shows any sort of affection for another man we label them gay? Please can we stop doing this? If we have to say they might have come out, then they did not come out. He may love the guy as a friend or he may well be in love with him, but until he states it specifically, can we please stop projecting?.

  2. I know little to nothing

    I know little to nothing about him (tho I think after Rocketman that will no longer be the case) but – is it just me or – could that actually be his SON?

  3. I really hope this is true.

    I really hope this is true. But, something tells me that we are going to get the story in a few days that his Twitter/Instagram was hacked and this wasn't him.  After all, look at the roles that he has been cast in. Hollywood would not let a closeted gay play those types of parts (i.e. action hero, love interest, multimillion dollar biopic).  When it comes to LGBT discrimination, Hollywood can give lessons to the Church. However, I will happily eat crow if I am wrong .
