Jamie Lee Curtis and James Corden share a wonderful friendship. The comedian has hosted “The Late Late Show with James Corden” for over seven years and has had the actress as a guest on his show on multiple occasions. She visits him one last time as the show edges closer to its termination.
Jamie Lee Curtis took to Instagram to write a touching farewell message for her pal, James Corden, after appearing on his show. The actress praised the TV star with a somewhat gloomy tone.
She did not make the Instagram post only because he’s a great friend but also because Corden will be leaving the show soon. In the caption of her touching post, Curtis revealed that her last appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” might be the final one. She admits that biding farewell to the comedian is tougher than she expected.
Curtis’s appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” was one to remember, especially for fans of her lengthy career and the show’s host. She sat beside Comedian Nate Bargatze and dispelled the notion she visited to promote the movie that baited her first Oscar nomination, “Everything Everywhere All At Once.”
After quickly skipping through some of the biggest achievements in her career, Curtis revealed her reason for being on the show, saying, “I’m here for one reason only. I’m here to tell you that you’re like the nicest guy, and I’m only here to tell you that. I’m here because you’re a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful human being.”
After giving Corden her final praises, Curtis pulled out an action figure of Corden and herself, made by one of her friends. She handed the Corden action figure to the host and suggested that he take it on as merchandise now that he will no longer be on the talk show.
James Corden’s Show Will End in April
The chapter of the British comedian’s “Late Late Show” career will end this April. CBS announced that the final episode of the talk show would air on April 27, 2023, at 12:37 a.m. Pacific time. The last episode is promoted as an enormous emotional conclusion to the talk show, which will air after a prime-time send-off for Corden.
Last year the Brit also announced his term at the desk was ending. He said he would not renew his contract this April after signing a final year’s contract last year. Corden feels revealed there might be more for him beyond the talk show. He added:
“When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that: a journey, an adventure. I never saw [the show] as my final destination, and I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way.”
During her SAG acceptance speech, Curtis also touched on the ongoing discrediting narrative of actors succeeding due to nepotism.
The news of “The Late Late Show” ending was the first announcement of multiple late-night show conclusions, as TBS’s “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” was canceled last year, and South African comedian Trevor Noah also took a bow from “The Daily Show” last December.

During her conversation with Corden, Curtis touched on her recent Screen Actors Guild Awards win. She was awarded for being the most Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her performance in “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” starring Ke Huy Quan and Michelle Yeoh.
Upon the announcement of her win, Curtis kissed her costar, Yeoh, and hit the stage. She revealed that she only took the role in the film because she would get to work with Yeoh. She gave a special tribute to her parents and her “Everything Everywhere All at Once” costar on stage.
During her SAG acceptance speech, Curtis also touched on the ongoing discrediting narrative of actors succeeding due to nepotism. She acknowledged that her parents played a role in her success but justified her success, saying that she has been acting for four and a half decades. At 64 years, Curtis is a proud advocate for natural beauty and accepts her aging.
