'Kingsman: The Secret Service' star Taron Egerton has claimed he will never be a "job hopper"
Taron Egerton will never be a "job hopper".
The 25-year-old actor - who recently appeared in 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' and is now starring as Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards in the new biopic of the British skier's life - revealed that although his new Hollywood lifestyle is "amazing", he doesn't want to become a workaholic.
He said: "If I was a 'job hopper', I wouldn't be able to watch my sister not do very well in the egg-and-spoon race. And that's kind of what life is about.
"I suppose I'm a little bit lazy. You always hear about Tom Cruise hopping from job to job to job but the stress that is involved with a shoot, I really feel like I've earned three months off by the time it's finished."
Despite the glitz and glamour that now surrounds him, Taron said his "lifestyle hasn't changed".
He told the Independent newspaper: "I'm going to my sister's school sports day. There are some parts of my life that are wonderful and it's amazing to get to go to cool events and award shows and things like that, but I think the outside perception is that your life just changes overnight and you wear Dolce and Gabanna suits and drive a Mercedes.
"But life's just not like that. I've made these films and I'm really proud but my lifestyle hasn't changed."
