Elton John Made Sure Sex And Drugs Stayed In 'Rocketman': "I Haven't Led A PG-13 life."

Elton John is not a man who wants to hide.

He has made it very clear that he wanted Rocketman to properly address his days of sex, drugs, and rock n' roll.

The movie actually took about two decades before it finally got made.

The reason why?

Elton John wanted to make sure that it accurately represented himself, and his life.

It was important to him that the relationships were properly represented.

In a piece for The Guardian, John explained his vision. "Some studios wanted to tone down the sex and drugs so the film would get a PG-13 rating. But I just haven't led a PG-13 rated life,"

He just wanted to tell the truth.

"I didn't want a film packed with drugs and sex, but equally, everyone knows I had quite a lot of both during the '70s and '80." He continued.
