James Corden Net Worth
The Late Late Show presenter James Corden is thought to be worth around $30m. Corden is the presenter of the popular show on CBS and has an annual salary of $9m. He rose to prominence in the United Kingdom, before coming over to America and continuing his rise to fame.
The actor began his career by taking small roles in British sitcoms such as Teachers, as well as having a bit part in the soap opera Hollyoaks, set in northern England. His big break came in a series called Fat Friends, in which he played Jamie Rymer. He linked up with Ruth Jones in the series and the pair went on to work in another sitcom, Gavin and Stacey.
It was with Gavin and Stacey that Corden found real fame, co-writing the series with Jones. He played Smithy, whilst Jones played his on/off romance Nessa. The show was a huge hit and put Corden firmly in the limelight as a skilled actor and writer. He won a string of awards for the show, starting with the British Comedy Awards Best Male Comedy Performer in 2007, whilst Gavin and Stacey won Best New British Television Comedy. In 2008, Corden won the BAFTA for Best Male Comedy Performance, and Gavin and Stacey won the BAFTA’s Audience Award for Programme of the Year. They were picking up gongs at the British Comedy Awards again at the end of 2008, with the show winning Best TV Comedy.
He got his first taste of presenting on Sky TV in 2010, hosting sports show A League of Their Own with cricketer Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff and soccer player Jamie Redknapp. He also presented the Brit Awards, a UK-based music award ceremony, in 2009, 2010 and 2012. In 2011, Corden played the lead role in the comedy play One Man, Two Guvnors. The play was a huge success, for which he won a Tony Award.
He made the transition to the US in 2015, when he took over The Late Late Show from Craig Ferguson. He has also hosted the Grammy Awards in 2016, and the Tony Awards in 2017. Despite relocating, Corden is still hugely popular in the UK which helps drive his earning potential as well as his appeal with the ladies.

In 2019, he delighted fans of Gavin and Stacey by penning a new episode with Jones as a Christmas special, which hinted at a more permanent return in the future.
