The only thing I know is that no one ever sat in a therapist's or a psychiatrist's room saying, 'My parents just loved me too much.' The only thing you can do is love them and be around.

It doesn't help anyone to judge their happiness or career by looking at where others may or may not be.

He's got a way of saying things sometimes that just puts everything into perspective. — James Corden

James Corden Quotes 1084102

This arrogance thing ... I've had that my whole life. I flip between, 'Oh really? Oh, thank you. Wow. That's amazing' and, 'Yeah! Of course I am.' They're both varying degrees of a self-defence mechanism. It can be from minute to minute that I change. — James Corden

James Corden Quotes 1750034

I'd love to have written a film and it to be regarded as good. I'd just like to be doing things that are good, really. I think that's all you can aim for.

James Corden Quotes 1754839

I saw Boy George looking amazing, absolutely unbelievable, and messaged him asking for the number of his nutritionist.

James Corden Quotes 1910629

I think everyone at school experiences some form of bullying. With kids at school, it can be anything - it can be your shoes or the wrong bag or anything.

James Corden Quotes 1961949

The truth of why I used to listen to Arrested Development on my Walkman was because if I didn't, it would take me 20 minutes to walk to school. If I did, it took me 15. That's the reason I loved it. I just had more of a kick in my step, more of a bounce, so I'd walk quicker. — James Corden

James Corden Quotes 1972285

I haven't always voted for the same party, mostly because I find that strange. One thing I've never quite understood is when people say 'I'm a Conservative' or 'I'm Labour,' before even hearing what the person running stands for or wants to change. — James Corden

James Corden Quotes 2042599

James Corden Quotes 2190758

I'm very proud of 'Gavin and Stacey,' but I think I have to write something else even to start to consider myself a writer. Just because you do something once, it doesn't mean that's who you are. I played football last night; it doesn't mean I'm a footballer. — James Corden

James Corden Quotes 2240277

It's a tough one for me, politics. I grew up in a house where my father is a Christian book salesman and a Tory, and my mum's a social worker. So I can always see the benefits of both arguments. — James Corden
