James Corden has revealed the rudest celebrity he’s ever had the displeasure to meet. “The Late Late Show” host has meet and greets with Hollywood’s elite as his job – if you don’t casually browse James’ “Carpool Karaoke” on YouTube, you’re missing out.
The British funnyman now sees his various comments on his celeb encounters collated into a nice, neat collection, although the interviews themselves even included 41-year-old Corden rubbing shoulders with A-Listers: James’ 2017 reveal for his #1 rudest celeb came as he interviewed Khloe Kardashian.
James was interviewing Khloe when he started getting close to revealing his personal rudest celeb.
“There was someone. But I don’t know if we’re going to try and book him on the show,” Corden said, saying coy.
Khloe pushed for a reveal, stating: “Why would you want to book him if he’s rude. Screw him, and tell us the name.”
James eventually dropped a name as he recalled being at a U2 concert with an actor well-known for playing British spy, James Bond.
“Pierce Brosnan. I don’t think he’s a rude man, he just happened to be [to me]. [Brosnan] was with some friends and they left halfway through the gig to go off, and we left the space [for them].”
“And then they had been gone quite a long time and Bono was right there on this big runway in the middle of the show,” James continued.
“So me and my wife moved into this area, and literally, I’ve never felt anything like it, this arm went on here and just pushed me out the way,” he added.
35-year-old Khloe didn’t seem to know what to make of it, suggesting that Brosnan may have been “drunk.”
“And I looked at him, and he didn’t even glance at me and he just moved back into his area,” James concluded.
And that’s why we love James. The guy doesn’t just deliver. He over-delivers. The “Gavin and Stacey” actor has also let slip who his second rudest celeb is, and it’s a pretty famous guy.
Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart was about to present James with an award back in 2010 when he made a statement about James’ weight.
“From where I was sitting, I could see your belly,” the 79-year-old legend said.
Shaming a quick-witted man like James Corden comes with a risk, though. It’s called the mother of all clap-backs.
“You could see my belly. I can see you dying right now,” James replied. Ouch.
Literally, how could this not be the best job on earth? Alongside interviewing the rich and famous on “The Late Late Show,” James gets to drive around Los Angeles in a four-wheel-drive while music’s elite casually joins him for a singalong.
“Carpool Karaoke” has seen the likes of Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Melissa McCarthy, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, and Justin Bieber join Corden for the much-loved series.
Most recently, James bagged himself the mother of all stars, getting 18-year-old singer Billie Eilish to join him in the “Carpool Karaoke” car. And yes, you need to watch it.
