Harvey Weinstein's Sexual Misconduct Accusers

Egerton, who plays singer Elton John in the upcoming biopic "Rocketman," also addressed rumors he is gay.

Taron Egerton says the #MeToo movement has made him concerned about being alone with "certain" women.

"Like a lot of people with a profile I was like, 'Holy shit, what have I done since I was 18?'" Egerton told Radio Times, according to Independent U.K. "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."

The "Robinhood" star also said that working with Kevin Spacey, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple people, on box office flop "The Billionaire Boys Club" made him extra cautious about who he spends his time with. Egerton, however, did not have a negative experience with the actor.

"If I had been the subject of his advances, I don't think that would have been the greatest challenge to deal with," Egerton said. "I don't think I would have felt rocked to the core by it. It's weird because he and I had stayed in touch, he had asked me to socialize. When it all kicked off, I don't think I was particularly surprised by it. It's such a tricky, complicated and weird thing. He's just gone now. Gone."

The Brit also recently called Spacey an "audacious flirt," but said he never felt "threatened" by the "House of Cards" star.

"On the surface level, he's flirty," Egerton told The Sunday Telegraph last week. "He is not my first experience of a flirty older bloke. Even from the age of 17 or 18, I've experienced that and I've never felt threatened by that, although he [Spacey] obviously has made some people feel threatened, and that's unacceptable.'"

"He was never inappropriate with me," he added. "There's a fine line, though, isn't there, between someone being an audacious flirt and being predatory? I thought he was the former. But it's sad that his professional demise threw such a shadow over ['The Billionaire Boys Club']."

Egerton, who plays singer Elton John in the upcoming biopic "Rocketman," also recently addressed the rumors that he is gay. Fans speculated the actor came out in an Instagram post when the "Kingsman" star posted a photo of a male friend with the caption, "Cutie. My boy," last month. Egerton has denied all these reports and said that he's "not gay."

"One of the lads was at my London flat and I instagrammed a picture of him and said, 'Look at this cutie', and a million outlets reported I was coming out as gay," Egerton also told Radio Times, via Towleroad. "I'm not gay but two of my mates came out when I was 15 and it was a joy to support them because, as a group, we are all secure in who we are...I'm certainly not going to stop calling my mates cuties and gorgeous, because they are cuties and they are gorgeous."
