James Corden Sparks Controversy By Joking About Harvey Weinstein

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Television talk show host James Corden is facing a backlash over jokes he made about Harvey Weinstein. Corden made a string of quips about Weinstein and the sexual misconduct allegations against him during a Hollywood charity event Friday. Corden joked about Weinstein in a bathtub and said “he’ll settle for whatever potted plant is closest.” Italian actress Asia Argento, one of his Weinstein’s accusers, chided Corden on Sunday on Twitter, saying “shame on this pig.” Rose McGowan, another Weinstein accuser, tweeted that Corden’s jokes show “EXACTLY what kind of HOLLYWOOD you really are.” The host of “The Late Late Show” on CBS apologized on Twitter, saying he intended to shame Weinstein and called Weinstein’s behavior “inexcusable.” Corden tweeted, “To be clear, sexual assault is no laughing matter.”

Charlie Puth Loses It on Corden’s ‘Late Late Show’

By Robyn Collins “This is the worst game ever.” one contestant told The Late Late Show host James Corden as he competed alongside Charlie Puth, and they were halfway into “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.” The talk show bit takes disgusting items like jellyfish, fish eyes, turkey testes, salmon seaweed smoothies, and has the show’s guests either answer an uncomfortable question or eat an item. Puth joined Frozen voice-actor Josh Gad, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom and Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery and Corden for a round.

Puth explained, “People who know me, I have a very very sensitive stomach and I can’t even be around brussel sprouts let alone this stuff.” He almost hurled when Rachel Bloom was unable to answer the name of Dockery’s ‘Downton Abbey’ character, so her team had to ingest bird saliva. The pop star was slightly offended when Corden didn’t know the titles of three of his songs. Corden tried to explain, “I’m a 39-year old father of two.” To which Puth replied, “Yeah, but you’re cool.” It got him a kiss on the cheek, but the host couldn’t come up with another title so he had to drink the salmon seaweed smoothie. When Puth was asked if he would say Meghan Trainor or Selena Gomez was a better singer, he chose to eat a grasshopper, instead of answer the question. This decision would ultimately do the pop star in, causing him to use the chuck bucket to his side. He did, however, compose himself afterwards for a performance of his single “Attention.”
