The 41-year-old British actor - who moved to Los Angeles in 2015 to take over hosting the U.S. chat show - opened up about relying on body control underwear after his guests The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan and drag queen RuPaul discussed their uncomfortable costumes.
Actor-chat show host James Corden says he wears spanx under his suits for every episode of his USA talk show.
Brosnahan opened up about her experiences with corsets on "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", and said she "almost" got injured in her costume, reports femalefirst.co.uk. (What!) - but it was Corden's "I'm not even joking" Spanx tale that received the biggest laugh from the crowd. "I wasn't breathing a lot and I was a little bit constrained and apparently some of my ribs are sort of fused together a little bit and I can't take super deep breaths any more".
As per Fox News, when asked about wearing the fashion garment every day, Rachel said, "I actually got a corset-related injury".
Speaking to Rachel Brosnahan and RuPaul who were guests on the show, James added: 'It'll be like I'm suddenly free, Ru! You'll know. I will shout it from the rooftops.
He then teased: 'You'll know, babe.
The Gavin & Stacey star is known for wearing snazzy suits on his hit USA series The Late Late Show but viewers probably had no idea that underneath it all, he was likely wearing a pair of shapewear. "It'll be my first ever Instagram story!" That's fun. It's really fine, guys.
'When you do drag and you're a man, you have to put your between-me-down-there further between-me-down-there, ' RuPaul joked.
