10 Things You Didn’t Know About James Corden
8. James Corden Got Locked Out of His Own Studio
“I couldn’t get in our building. That’s not a lie,” says Corden. He told the story on Live with Kelly. “In our studio at CBS, there’s a big poster with my face on the side of the wall and our show had just launched two weeks earlier and I had gone out for a sandwich and I went to go in and [security] was like – have you got your pass? And I said, ‘oh no I don’t, I left it inside.’ And he goes, ‘sorry, can’t let you in without your pass.’ So we had to call someone in the office and someone had to come down and get me.”
7. He Has a Favourite Carpool Karaoke
In September 2015, Stevie Wonder was then carpool guest and something very special happened that made this segment one of Corden’s favourites. Corden had asked Stevie Wonder to call his wife Julia. Wonder obliged and sang one of his hit songs. Wonder crooned, “I just called to say James loves you. I just called to say how much he cares.” During the segment Corden got visibly emotional. He puts his head in his hands and wiped away tears at the end. Corden has been married to his wife Julia since 2012 and they have two young children, Max and Carey.
