Corden: I get far more shit than upper class actors
TV star James Corden has complained that acting is becoming an “elitist sport” and that he is subjected to a tougher time than the likes of Tom Hiddleston and Eddie Redmayne because of his class.
The former Gavin And Stacey actor, 37, has become a huge name in the US thanks to his successful chat show and its Carpool Karaoke segmentd.
But he said that upper class actors like Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch were not subjected to the same scrutiny in Britain because of their wellheeled backgrounds.
Corden told GQ magazine: “I’ve come to the conclusion that it is about class.
“Douglas Booth has got a great career, he’s a brilliant actor, but he’s never going to encounter the sort of shit like I’ve had.
“Nor will Tom Hiddleston. Nor Eddie Redmayne. Nor Benedict Cumberbatch.
“I fear acting is becoming an elitist sport and I worry about where that lands us culturally. I really do.” THE Death House at the State Prison in Huntsville, Texas, offers wheelchair access.
