Corden Slims Down for Broadway

In a League Of His Own, James sheds 5 stone!!!

He’s always been known as something of a cuddly actor, using his weight as a tool in his humour for shows including Gavin & Stacey and Fat Friends and even describing himself as a ‘chunky unit’.
But yesterday James Corden showed off a noticeably slimmer figure after losing an incredible five stone ahead of making his Broadway return later this year. The 33-year-old actor is believed to have gone from 21 stone to 16 stone, and is thought to be aiming to shed another 21lbs before hitting New York with his play One Man, Two Guvnors

A source said: ‘James is the lightest he has been since he was a child – 16 stone. As well as hiring a personal trainer, James cut out his favourite snack – cheesy Quavers – and stopped eating late at night.

‘He’s not doing anything faddy but is simply trying to eat more healthily. The plan is to lose another stone-and-a-half by April, when the show kicks off in New York.’

It has been claimed that becoming a father to son Max with fiancée Julia Carey was the first thing that spurred James on to lose weight. The source added to the Daily Mirror: ‘Since becoming a dad, his priorities have changed. He realised he wanted to get fit and maximise play time with his son Max.

‘He didn’t want to be huffing and puffing around after the youngster. The final incentive was when his theatre hit One Man Two Guvnors was signed up for a run on Broadway.’

James’ weight loss also comes ahead of his wedding to Julia, which was meant to be taking place this year.
However, the actor revealed recently that he will be ‘too busy’ for the forseeable future to go ahead with the wedding, and will have to wait until after the Broadway run concludes.

He said: ‘I’m not getting married just yet, I’m too busy working. I’m off to New York in a few months. There is just too much going on.

 ‘Going to America is the best prize so fingers crossed it will work out on Broadway. I will be taking my family with me which will be amazing but it has meant we’ll have to marry when we get back. We haven’t set a date yet.’
