Corden rose to fame in the U.K. with a successful TV show Gavin and Stacey, which debuted in 2007.
While he’s been a roaring talent in England for a decade, not many in the states knew of him here up until a few years ago. Eventually, he starred in a Broadway show and won a Tony award for One Man, Two Guvnors in 2012. He then landed a highly coveted role in the film version of Into the Woods in 2014. But even when he nabbed the hosting gig of The Late Late Show in March 2015 he was still relatively unknown in the States. Of course, all that’s changed…
As for his love life, in 2016, the beloved funnyman talked to Rolling Stone about his wife.
“I could never understand when I watch romantic comedies the notion that for some reason unattractive or heavy people don’t fall in love. If they do, it’s in some odd, kooky, roundabout way—and it’s not. It’s exactly the same,” he said.
He added, “I met my wife; she barely owned a television and worked for Save the Children. We sat down one night and we fell in love and that was it.”
The new party of five should make for quite the rousing episode of Carpool Karaoke with James at the wheel!
