Corden, James Corden
Allow me to introduce you to Britain’s newest sex symbol. Yes, this lovely limey is the latest heartthrob in the UK. He is a writer, actor, comedian and, obviously, model (see photo above). Certainly, he has a great sense of humour (and a great package – have you carefully checked out the photo?) and doesn’t take himself too seriously, which is seriously sexy.
James is in good company among recent British love gods. More and more comedians continue to make the annual ‘Sex Symbol’ lists, such as Ricky Gervais (of original ‘The Office’ fame) and David Walliams (please tell me you’ve seen ‘Little Britain’) – both of whom have senses of humour and intelligence to bring most witty gals to their knees. Unlikely, yes. Unsexy, no.
Like any Sexiest Man Alive, James went through a brief period where the attention went to his head. According to him, “I started to think I was a bit more of a dude than I really am.” Now, he claims to have his feet planted firmly on the ground and has been able to put his newfound fame into perspective. His David Beckham-inspired pose (which appeared in Heat magazine) caused waves in the UK. He maintains that he was not embarrassed to be photographed in his pants. He figures “if you want to be successful in comedy, you can’t have any shame. You can’t be cool and funny. You make a choice. You can either be really cool or really funny and then hopefully people will start to think that’s quite cool. Most of my life has been spent trying to make people laugh.”
What a dude! Now, could we just get some sexy glamour shots of Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley (of Absolutely Fabulous fabulousness), Dawn French (of French and Saunders fame) and Sally Phillips (of Bridget Jones and Smack the Pony – a hilarious British sketch comedy show) on the cover of lad mags as some of the Sexiest Women Alive?
