James Corden Bemoans That 'chubby People Don't Get to Have Sex in Films'

James Corden has hit out at the absence of "chubby" actors from leading film and TV roles, bemoaning that they never get to fall in love or have sex.The Late Late Show host said the best "fat" people could expect when looking for screen parts was to be cast as the funny friend of an "attractive" star, rather than secure a main part for themselves.Speaking on David Tennant Does A Podcast With, the 40-year-old said such actors "never really fall in love" and "never have sex" on the big or small screen, and that "no-one ever finds you attractive".He told fellow actor Tennant that his experience of being excluded from roles is what spurred him on to start writing, which eventually led to him co-creating the hit sitcom Gavin & Stacey."I had no idea if I'd be able to write," said Corden, who has become a worldwide star since he began hosting his US talk show four years ago."It came about because I'd done a film with Shane Meadows, I'd done a Mike Leigh film and done Fat Friends on ITV, and now I was in this play which was the play to see (The History Boys)."And I was in this play with seven other boys who were at a similar age and a similar place in our careers, and pretty much every day, three or four of these boys would come in with this massive film script under their arm."Corden, who continues to present Sky One sports quiz show A League Of Their Own, said he and two other actors in the acclaimed History Boys production were eventually told about the "hottest script".He told Tennant that his two colleagues were sent the script for the lead roles, while he only got two pages with a view to playing a minor role as a newsagent during the opening of the film.Corden recalled: "I really felt like people were going, 'We think you're quite good. It's just because of what you look like.'"If you only watch TV or films, if an alien came back and they had to take a reading on planet Earth by just watching films or TV, they would imagine that if you are chubby or fat or big, you never really fall in love, you never have sex."Certainly no-one really ever finds you attractive."You will be good friends with people who are attractive and often will be a great sense of comfort to them and perhaps chip in with the odd joke every now and again."As you get older you'll probably be a judge in something or you'll be dropping off a television to a handsome person in a sitcom. And that's really how it can feel."It felt like if the world of entertainment was a big banquet table, people are like, 'There isn't a seat for you here.' I was like, 'if that's not going to happen then I'm going to try to make something happen for myself'."Corden has secured a number of Hollywood film roles since his show debuted in the US, but most of them have been vocal performances in animated features.He had parts in the Dreamworks musical Trolls in 2016, The Emoji Movie in 2017, and was the voice behind the title character in Peter Rabbit last year. He had a minor role in the live-action Ocean's 8.Corden is due to appear in a new film adaptation of the musical Cats later this year, alongside fellow Britons Idris Elba and Judi Dench, as well as US stars Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift and Jason Derulo.

Hopeful Is Taken by Banquet Table
SARATOGA SPRINGS. N.Y., Aug. 28-C. V. Whitney's favored Banquet Table and his jockey, Jean Cruguet, had a profitable reunion today at the closing session of Saratoga's 24‐day meeting when they combined to capture the 72d running of the Hopeful Stakes.Under the able guidance of the French rider, Banquet Table turned in an impressive performance in heating Willian 0. Hicks's Turn of Coin in the $85,575, 6½‐furlong contest by a length. Elberon Farm's P.R. Man was an outdistanced third, six lengths behind Turn of Coin.A burhper crop of 13 juvenile colts turned out for the fixture, which this year in particular was considered a barometer for those 2‐yearolds who may he considered as the best in their division. Until today, it was felt no outstanding candidate for the juvenile championship had emerged.This afternoon, however, with 23,595 fans on hand despite heavy skies, the $7.40‐for‐$2 Banquet Table established himself as the leader in his division. To reach this niche, however, the Whitney color‐bearer had to outlast Turn of Coin in a tense stretch duel that had the crowd roaring.The choice, one of six colts in the event‐ wearing mud caulks, was clocked in 1:16 1/5 over the wet, but fast, strip. He was a top contender throughout, racing in the second spot behind Llangollen's First Pretense during the early going and then taking the lead (and holding it) the far turn.For Cruguet, the winning ride was particularly gratifying because ailing Jacinto Vasquez had become the colt's regular rider, winning with him in the Great American at Belmont, last fune and in the Saratoga Special earlier at the local meeting.With Vasquez sidelined, the Frenchman became the replacement.It was Cruguet, who first brought Banquet Table to the winners' circle in the colt's debut in a maiden event last May. In that race and in the next one-also under Cruguet's guidance-Banquet Table had not shown gateleaving speed.Today, however, the Whitney performer left barrier as if jet propelled. The speedy departure was a surprise to Cruguet."He really surprised me the way he broke and ran early," the jockey said. "When I first got to know him he was slow to get under way, lazy maybe. But today he wanted to run from the start, and I wasn't about to throw him down."All Cruguet did once he found himself alone in the stretch with Turn of Coin running on the inside of him was to "shake my mount up."Angel Cordero, who had the leg up on Turn of Coin-he Vras sent to the post as the second choice-made a valiant effort to try to pass his rival in the straightaway."My colt tried hard," said Cordero, who had three winners on the card. "In fact, he got his head in front at the quarter pole. But Banquet Table wasn't giving up."The victory, worth $51,345, increased Banquet Table's lifetime earnings to $110,319. It enabled Cruguet to round out a successful meeting with a big triumph that was worth about $5,100 to him.With all entries carrying similar weights of 122 pounds, the contest catapulted Banquet Table and Turn of Coin to the top of the juvenile division-at least for the time being. First Pretense, who had shown such great early speed, finished last. As for the rest of the field, it provided no challenge for the first two finishers.New York's major racing scene now shifts to Belmont Park, where a 48‐day meeting starts on Monday. The big items on the opening program will be two divisions of the Fall Highweight Handicap.El Rosillo VictorMIAMI, Aug. 28 (AP) - El Rosillo rolled to victory today in the $29,500 Meadowland Handicap at Calder, 3½ lengths ahead of the favored Lightning Thrust, with Latin Leader third, four lengths off the pace.Ridden by Mike Rivera, El Rosillo ran 1 1‐16 miles on the grass in 1:42 2‐5 and paid $9.20, $3.60 and $3.
