James Corden says ‘you can’t take failures personally’ following Balthazar backlash
The Late Late show host James Corden, 44, explained how he “doesn’t take failure personally” during an appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast with Josh Horowitz yesterday.The Gavin and Stacey star previously faced backlash after Balthazar restaurant owner Keith McNally, 71, accused him of mistreating his staff.The restaurant boss previously hit out at the comedian, branding him “the most abusive customer to my servers” to ever set foot in his New York eatery.Meanwhile, James went on to claim in an interview that he “hasn’t done anything wrong, on any level”. On the podcast yesterday, James spoke about how he handles difficult situations in his career. The star is set to leave The Late Late show after eight years of hosting the CBS programme.Reflecting on his time presenting a late night talk show, he told Josh: “Doing a show like this, it's always an up-at-dawn, pride-swallowing siege - to steal a line from Jerry McGuire. “You're always just trying and hoping that people will get the thing that you’ve pitched them, that they'll have the time or the inclination to do it. “And then you can't take it personally if they don't, because you’ve just got to go, ‘Well, there’s another show tomorrow.’“That’s it, really, there’s another show tomorrow, so you can’t really dwell on anything.”James also recently faced controversy after fans accused him of “stealing” a joke from comedian Ricky Gervais and telling it on his show.Last month, James addressed the accusations on Twitter, writing: “Inadvertently told a brilliant Ricky Gervais joke on the show last night, obviously not knowing it came from him. “It’s brilliant, because it’s a Ricky Gervais joke,” he continued.
