Elton is fond of British actors from the past, such as Margaret Rutherford and Tony Hancock.
This was one of the many subjects he covered on CTV's Vicki Gabereau Show, which aired Monday, October 25.
Elton also discussed his suspicions surrounding the death of Princess Diana; why he gives so much to charity (believing he ''missed the boat'' on helping AIDS victims in the late eighties), and how much work was involved in putting Billy Elliot together.
And as he has done previously, the musician complained about fame. He said that he is recognised even when in disguise.
