Find out who Corden was referring to and what happened in their interaction.

Corden’s journey as an actor

In his determination to make it as a host of a talk show (or a “chat show,” as Corden refers to it), the English actor had to navigate through a certain amount of prejudice against him, in a sense, because of his weight. Overall, it wasn’t an easy adjustment for the Tony Award winner.

“I was so convinced it wouldn’t work that we rented all our furniture for a year,” Corden told Mr Porter in 2016 about his hesitancy towards accepting the [Late Late Show] job. “I mean, I’ve never hosted a chat show before. I’m not a stand-up. I’m not even a sketch comedian.”

Corden said: “There was someone. But I don’t know if we’re going to try and book him on the show.”

But Kardashian wouldn’t let Corden drop it, insisting on knowing who it was, saying “Why would you want to book him if he’s rude. Screw him, and tell us the name.”

Corden responded: “Pierce Brosnan. I don’t think he’s a rude man, he just happened to be [to me].

“[Brosnan] was with some friends and they left halfway through the gig to go off, and we left the space [for them].”

“And then they had been gone quite a long time and Bono was right there on this big runway in the middle of the show.”

“So me and my wife moved into this area, and literally, I’ve never felt anything like it, this arm went on here and just pushed me out the way.

“And I looked at him, and he didn’t even glance at me and he just moved back into his area.”

Kardashian tried to give Brosnan the benefit of the doubt. “Maybe he was drunk,” she said.

“Maybe he’s just a bit f***ing rude,” concluded Corden.
