James Corden admits to wearing slimming Spanx on The Late Late Show and claims ‘I’m not even joking’

James Corden has revealed he wears Spanx to host The Late Late Show.

The 41-year-old late night talk show host welcomed The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan and RuPaul to the show on Monday, when the guests started discussing wardrobe difficulties.

While Brosnahan admitted some of her ribs are now ‘fused together’ after wearing a corset on the hit Amazon series, and RuPaul outlined the routine of getting into drag, Corden admitted he wears Spanx, but his New Year’s resolution is to ditch them.

‘I think I’m making a sacrifice wearing these Spanx,’ Corden said, admitting to wearing the shapewear, as RuPaul started laughing.

‘I’m not even joking. My New Year’s resolution is to try to get to a point where I do one show this year, not wearing Spanx,’ he added as both Brosnahan and RuPaul started laughing.

‘It’ll be like I’m free, Ru, I won’t know what to do! I’ll be breathing’ Corden exclaimed, while RuPaul asked if they’ll know when he goes sans Spanx.

‘Oh you’ll know babe. You’ll know. I’ll shout it from the rooftops. It’ll be my first ever Instagram story!’ Corden exclaimed.

The whole Spanx discussion was prompted by Corden asking Brosnahan about having to wear a corset on the set of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, when the Emmy-winning actress revealed she even got a ‘corset-wearing injury’ on the show.

‘We talk so fast on the show that, just to get all the words out, you can’t really take many breaths, so I think 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 anymore,’ Brosnahan said.

When RuPaul expressed concern, stating, ‘Oh my goodness,’ Brosnahan brushed it off saying, ‘It’s really fine, guys,’ adding it’s, ‘champagne problems.’

Corden then asked RuPaul what the most painful clothing he ever wore, when the drag queen legend revealed how painful the whole process of getting in drag is.

‘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.

‘With AJ and the Queen, I’d say 15, 16 hour days sometimes, so it’s corsets, it’s face stuff, it’s glue, it’s an intricate system of pulleys and weights,’ RuPaul said, as Brosnahan added, ‘I’ll never complain again.’

RuPaul added that the whole process is, ‘not cute and it’s not for sissies,’ adding you really have to be ‘convicted to do this thing.’

Corden’s bandleader Reggie Watts also asked the guests if they had any fashion predictions for the year 2020, and RuPaul said simply, ‘Hats on hats.’
