Cut Back Begonias?

I overwintered container begonias in a sunny room, and now they are very leggy. Can I cut them back, and if so how much?

They can be cut back in spring with leggy growth being trimmed back to about pot level (or 2-3 inches), which will promote new growth and a more compact form.
