How Tall Is James Corden?

James Corden is perhaps best known for his popular segment Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show with James Corden, where he has several notable artists and public figures sing songs in the car together.  

Although Corden has been in show business for several years now, Carpool Karaoke is really what catapulted him to his current celebrity stats. Like any other celebrity, fans get curious and want to know more about his background and personal life, and one common inquiry about the star is, “How tall is James Corden?” Find the answer to that question, and several more, below.  

How tall is James Corden?

According to Celeb Heights, James Corden is 5′ 9″, which he stated in a 2017 interview. He used to claim that he was 5′ 11″ to casting professionals, but 5′ 9″ appears to be closer to his actual height. Much of the news surrounding Corden lately has been focused on his fitness journey. Like many people, Corden started the New Year off with a pledge and a plan to get healthier and more fit.

He announced in early 2021 that he was partnering with WW (formerly Weight Watchers) because, “I’ve realized that every year, for the past decade — probably even 15 years — on January 1st, I’ve told myself and anyone that would listen that, ‘This is it. This is the year, I’m going on a diet. I’m going to lose a load of weight. I’m fed up with the way I look, I’m fed up with being unhealthy, and this is it — this is the year I’m doing it.”

According to Today, Corden’s mindset has shifted from one focused only on weight loss to one focused on WW’s “wellness and health and feeling better” mantra. Corden stated that, “I want to change the way I live. I want to be better for my children and for my family… The weight is not the issue, it’s the wellness of it I am ready to tackle… If 2020 taught us anything it was that taking care of yourself has to be a priority.”
