Elton John says watching someone portray him on the big screen is strange

Elton John says watching himself being portrayed by actor Taron Egerton in his bio-pic, Rocketman, has been a strange experience.

Talking to Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden in Interview magazine, Elton says, "My life has been a crazy fantasy all the way through... I didn't want this film to be earnest because I am not earnest. I've done some raving, ridiculous things in my life, both good and bad...

"I have seen a bit of the trailer, and it's the weirdest thing seeing someone portray you. Taron is so eerily like me that it makes it even weirder...

"I'm looking forward to seeing it, but it's hard enough to look at myself in the mirror. And then to see a film about me, it's like, 'Oh my God!'"

Madden is also in the film, playing Elton's former manager and lover John ReidRocketman opens in theaters on May 31st.
