‘You’re not bred for success’: James Corden says opportunities for working class people are ‘capped’ within the entertainment industry as he reflects upon his own career

James Corden has said that working class people are ‘not bred for success’ and face  ‘capped opportunities’ within the entertainment industry. 

The comedian, 44, described his experience on the 1997 film, Twenty Four Seven, as ‘life changing’ because he was not told that such things ‘were possible.’ 

Starring on This Cultural Life on Radio 4, James, who recently announced plans step down as the host of The Late Late Show, reflected on his own successes.

Speaking to presenter John Wilson, he said: ‘When I think back to the time of making that film (Twenty Four Seven), I just think it was a life changing experience for me.’ 

James then added that director Shane Meadows taught him that ‘no one is going to invite you to the table.’ 

‘I think particularly if you’re from a working class environment. You’re not bred for success. The talent is everywhere, and opportunity isn’t. It just isn’t,’ he admitted.

James continued: ‘You’re capped in a way. I didn’t realise until I met my wife that she did I think thirteen GCSEs and I did six. And the most you could do at my school was seven. You’re kind of capped. You’re not really told that these things are possible. 

‘I guess what I learned from him [Shane] is you’re going to have to bully your way through this. You’re going to have to get people to budge up to sit at the table if that’s what you want to do. It isn’t going to just be presented to you.’

Speaking of his decision to step down from The Late Late Show, he added: ‘I think it’s a greater risk to stay. There’s an amazing clip, in which David Bowie talks about never playing to the gallery.

‘On the day of the announcement that I was going to walk away, it was still made very clear to me that there was a job here for the next five years and I’m not gonna lie, financially, it’s good. 

‘I would watch that clip. I must have watched it fifty times that week, where he just says, “If you feel safe in the area that you’re working in, you’re not working in the right area. 

‘”Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth and when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.'”

James will step down as the host of The Late Late Show at the end of next season amid plans to spend more time back home in the UK, DailyMail.com confirmed.

The presenter  made the decision to quit at the end of season eight despite the best efforts of CBS executives who exclusively told DailyMail.com that they ‘desperately tried to keep him for longer.’

The star and his wife of 10 years Jules are mulling over a return to the UK with their three children Max, 11, Carey, seven, and Charlotte, four, but they are still trying to ‘figure out’ what’s next for the family.
