In this intimate, unedited conversation, James Corden speaks to Oprah about his success with Carpool Karaoke, losing weight on WW (formerly Weight Watchers), and his biggest hopes for his children. The half-hour discussion was part of Oprah’s Your Life in Focus: Be the Love You Need event, presented by WW, which aired in front of a live, Zoom-based studio audience.

Corden, who started his wellness journey with WW in early January, has lost 16 lbs.* so far.

He says: “As a man, it’s historically seen as it isn’t very sexy to say that you’re on a diet. Or it’s not very manly somehow to want to make changes in your own health. Because men drink beer and we go out and it doesn’t matter what you look like and all those things. And I actually think it’s the single most positive and sexy thing you can do to say ‘I would like to be a bit healthier. I would like to be a healthier presence in my family, for my children. I would like to feel better.’”
