James Corden wants Hollywood to know that "unattractive or heavy people" have relationships like everybody else.
In an interview withRolling Stone magazine, the Late Late Show host talks about being a bigger kid in his teenage years and what miffs him most about the entertainment industry. "I could never understand when I watch romantic comedies the notion that for some reason unattractive or heavy people don’t fall in love," Corden explains. "If they do, it’s in some odd, kooky, roundabout way -- and it’s not. It’s exactly the same. 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."

Corden has become a household name since joining the CBS family last year, but as a teen, he had to work hard to make friends. "If you’re big at school, you’ve really got two choices," he explains. "You’re going to be a target. If you go to school and you’re me, you go, ‘Right, I’m just going to make myself a bigger target. My confidence, it will terrify them.’ That’s how I felt in school. Inside, you’re terrified. But if you’re a bit funny, if you’re quicker than them, they won’t circle back on you again."
The 38-year-old TV personality has become a viral sensation thanks to the Late Late Show's wildly popular segment, 'Carpool Karaoke.' "You’re getting in a car. The doors close. It’s the two of you. You’re going to put the music on. We’re going to sing our hearts out. What I say to everybody is, this is a safe place," he says of the segment's success. "The more you go for it in the songs, like you’re playing Madison Square Garden, the better it is. I have to meet them halfway with that. If I am at all timid in those moments, then they’re going to be like, ‘Wait. Hang on. What am I doing?'"
