James Corden: I took a nude pic

James Corden "lost it" when hearing the words 'Mr. Frodo' in the final The Lord of the Rings film.

The British funnyman has taken the world by storm; since landing a lead role in Into the Woods he's taken over as host of The Late Late Show in the US.

It seems the fame hasn't gone to his head though, as James is just as silly now as he's always been.

"I jumped into a swimming pool about a year-and-a-half ago, totally naked. A friend of ours let us stay in their house, and he's quite wealthy, and I couldn't think of what to get him as a present," he recalled to Empire magazine. "So I got my wife to photograph me naked as I leapt into his pool, printed it out and left it by his bed."

Rubbing shoulders with the A-list isn't something new for the comedian - he used to share a flat with fellow star Dominic Cooper. However James couldn't take his pal seriously during that time as the actor insisted on wearing glasses with no frames while at home, which he viewed as "one step more ridiculous than sunglasses indoors".

James also touched upon the last time he walked out of the cinema during his discussion with the publication; a decision he doesn't think will go down well with its readers.

"The third Lord of the Rings film. D'you know what it was that pushed me over the edge? When Sam called him 'Mr. Frodo'. I just lost it," James recalled. "At some point, you've got to call him Frodo, man. This was followed by a moment where they're on horses, and Ian McKellen uses his staff and kills a whole bunch of them at once. Do that at the start, for Christ's sake!"
