Taron Egerton Finds Hair Shaving After Split From Girlfriend Empowering

The 'Robin Hood' actor confirms he has broken up with Emily Thomas when talking about his decision to shave his head after the completion of filming for Elton John biopic 'Rocketman'.

AceShowbiz - Taron Egerton has split from his girlfriend Emily Thomas after two years of dating.

The "Kingsman: The Secret Service" actor and his now-ex reportedly began dating in November, 2016 and they were last seen together publicly over the summer.

And now Taron has opened up about the break-up while discussing how he "reinvented" himself by shaving his head after wrapping production on his Elton John biopic "Rocketman".

"I found it quite liberating because I just finished the Elton John thing and had this awful hair," he told the Press Association. "So, I shaved my hair (because) they had thinned it right out and given me this bald patch."

"It was very cathartic and also, not to put a downer on things, I split up with my girlfriend not long ago and it weirdly felt a bit like reinvention. It felt quite empowering to sort of change the way I look."

Taron also spoke about the end of his relationship while expressing his fears about dating following the launch of the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct and assault - the actor admitted he worries his courting could land him in trouble.

"Like a lot of people with a profile I was like, 'Holy s**t, what have I done since I was 18,' " he told Radio Times. "I have just become single again and I'm not in a place where I'm thinking about dating, but when I am, it will probably affect my thinking a bit. There are certainly situations where I avoid being alone with certain people."
