  • James Corden Admits that British Elitist Society Doesn’t Recognize His Achievements

James Corden says that he is worried that British elitist society is making acting a class thing which will impact on the culture of his country.

It is the nation that produced Shakespeare and fine actors like Michael Caine, Dame Judi Dench, Jeremy Irons, Dame Maggie Smith and so many more.

It is the hub of some world renowned actors but a local guy who has had a ranging career full of acting stints in theater, TV and movie has something else to say about the acting career in the UK. 

James Corden who has emerged on the late night show scene with Late Late Show on CBS with some trending segments like Carpool Karaoke and Drop the Mic recently made some confessions in his interview with GQ magazine

James said that in his long career as an actor and performer which includes being nominated for an Olivier Award and winning a BAFTA and OBE awards, he said that working in America has been better.

He said the acting in England was becoming an ‘elitist sport’. The London born actor said that he had to work harder than many actor born in elite classes to overcome many stereotypes.

He said that the hurdle he had to cross in his career would not be the same struggles that actors like Douglas Booth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston and Eddie Redmayne might not face.

He said that all of them are brilliant actors but they are not facing the stereotypical barriers that he had to break down. He also shared his concerns that if this continued, he was afraid for his country’s cultural representation. 

James has acted in several theatre productions, including the 2004 production of The History Boys, but reached dizzying new heights of fame with his starring turn in Gavin & Stacey.
