James Corden loves hosting ‘The Late, Late Show’ because he gets to “be an idiot” every night.
The chat show host still can’t believe he is hosting such a huge show in the US and can’t wait to see where the next year takes the show.
He said: “Historically, these shows start bad and get better. So I’m excited to see where we are in a year. That gets the fire in my belly.
“Like, we’re making a proper show on American TV. If I could tell my 12-year-old self that this would be my life right now, his head would explode. I’m an idiot and I just get to be an idiot every night.”
And though his new approach to the traditional format has been praised, the British host insists it simply conceals his short-comings.
He told GQ magazine: “It’s not so much as playing to my strengths as hiding my weaknesses.”
The 37-year-old star – who has children Max, four, and 10-month-old Carey with wife Julia – admitted his hectic schedule on the late-night show has left him exhausted.
He admitted: “I actually don’t even know how tired I am right now.”
