James Corden is having to homeschool his kids like a majority of Americans and others around the globe amid COVID-19 quarantine. The Late Late Show with James Corden host hilariously admitted to Ryan Seacrest on-air on Monday, March 30, that he’s failing when it comes to being the teacher.
“I’ve never had greater respect for teachers everywhere and also I will never come home from work ever again and say ‘I’m exhausted.’ I just won’t do it,” Corden told Seacrest. “The home schooling is horrific.”
“If somebody came down from a different planet and observed me and my son and then were asked ‘Which of these is the teacher?’ They would never choose me,” the dad of kids Max, 9, Carey, 5, and Charlotte, 2, hilariously added.
Corden has also spent his quarantine time cleaning out his garage to make room for new special Homefest: James Corden’s Late Late Show Special which will will feature Corden, from his garage, introducing stars from their own homes around the world including musical performances by BTS in South Korea, Andrea Bocelli in Italy, Dua Lipa in London, and Billie Eilish with Finneas O'Connell and John Legend in Los Angeles.
“The idea of the show was — the incredible thing about this virus — is it puts all of us in the same boat,” he concluded. “We’re all at home. It doesn’t discriminate. We’re all going through this and in the strangest way by being kept apart, it’s kind of unified us somehow.”
