The 1 Request Elton John Made About the Hair in Rocketman
The toughest critic should probably be the subject at the center of the storyline, right? Turns out, John has been very supportive. "I met Elton at the start of my time on the project when he came to set to visit and see the progress we were making. He didn't personally discuss this with me, but I knew he saw the screen tests and he asked that his hair be a sandy blond with highlights — which of course I took on board. David Furnish also visited the set often and was always keeping us informed of Elton's thoughts as the film was being shot. I must say we only ever got praise."
