People are speculating with bated breath whether or not "Kingsman" star Taron Egerton just came out as gay or bisexual on social media. 

The 28-year-old action man behind the popular spy franchise recently joined Instagram and one of his first posts displayed an unidentified male with the caption "Cutie. My boy [heart emoji]"

Although it could be said that Brits are slightly more comfortable with sex than Americans and Egerton could just be giving his mate some loving attention, still, some are questioning the provocative post. 

One follower, according to LGBTQ Nation, questioned the actor about the man in the photo and the ambiguous message, asking him to tag the mystery man but Egerton replied, “Nah, he’s mine and mine only.”

In another response, someone asked, “Does that mean he’s got a boyfriend now?” to which the star hit "like."

The world will have to wait for Egerton's answer. It may just be a thirsty publicity stunt since the actor will play the famous gay pop star Elton John in Rocketman.

However, the actor has been notoriously tight-lipped about his dating life and only recently admitted to dating producer Emily Thomson.  

Egerton has been keeping busy in front of the camera. Along with the Elton John bio, he'll play Robin Hood in the latest incarnation of that story and will appear once again as Eggsy in "Kingsman 3."
