James Corden’s net worth

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Corden is currently worth $12 million. Only $5 million of that comes from his salary as the host of The Late Late Show. So where does the rest of his money come from?

Corden’s career

Before Corden ever did a Carpool Karaoke, he was actually a successful actor. He was born in London in 1978. From 2000 to 2005, he held the starring role in Fat Friends, a British tv show. From there, he went on to co-create, co-write, and star in the British sitcom Gavin & Stacey. The program received rave reviews and even won him a BAFTA Television Award for Best Comedy Performance. Next, he moved on to the stage where he starred in “One Man, Two Guvnors.” When the play moved to Broadway, he won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play for his performance.

In 2015, he replaced Craig Ferguson as the host of The Late Late Show, but it wasn’t until he released his Carpool Karaoke video with Adele that his star in the American market really began to shine. The video became the most viral video on YouTube in 2016 and received over 180 million views.

His contract with the Late Late Show goes through 2020, according to Heavy.

Is Corden married?

Nine years ago, Corden met his wife, Julia Carey. At the time, he was just coming off a breakup with his girlfirend of eight years.

“I had been trying not to go out as much, I was trying to be OK on my own,” he told People.

One night, his friend Dominic Cooper invited him to a Save the Children event and Corden agreed to go.

“And thank God he persuaded me because we got there and Dominic said, he doesn’t call me James he calls me Lavine, it’s a nickname we have, he said, ‘Lavine this is Jules.'”

And in response, the actor did something quite bold.

“I said, ‘Hi Jules, you might be the most beautiful woman in the world.'”

From there, the two bonded over their love of spending time at home, rather than going out on the town and began planning their lives together.

The couple married on Sep. 15, 2012 and they now have three children together.

Where does Corden live?

As Corden’s family has grown, they have needed more space. In 2017, the late night show host and his wife purchased a house in Los Angeles for $9.8 million.

The home previously belonged to Steve Levitan, the creator of Modern Family. When Levitan purchased the home in 1996, he only paid $1.55 million.

The 8,609 square foot home has five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The residence sits on 20,000 feet of sprawling land.
