James Corden says he wants to get ripped 'like The Rock'
Corden has already lost a stone in the first five weeks of 2021
Since the beginning of the year, James Corden has been on a diet - and he claims he wants to get ripped like The Rock.
Since leaving the WWE to embark on a Hollywood career, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has become one of the most popular actors in the world.
In 2013, he was named by Forbes as the highest-grossing actor in the world, and has been named the highest paid actor in the world for the past two years.
However, The Rock is a fitness fanatic, first and foremost. His Instagram page is awash with motivational snippets, fitness tips and workout footage filmed from inside the Iron Paradise - The Rock's hugely-impressive portable home gym.
It appears his work has rubbed off on The Late Late Show host, ex-Gavin and Stacey star James Corden.
Corden, 42, recently told Oprah Winfrey during an online WW (formerly Weight Watchers) event that he wants to embark on a diet, and takes inspiration from The Rock in his pursuit of fitness.
"I want to change the way that I live," Corden said.
"I want to be better for my children and for my family. I don't want to wake up tired, or feel embarrassed when I'm chasing my son on the soccer field and out of breath after three minutes."
Corden said he lost a stone in the first five weeks of 2021, and now plans to continue his progress.
"The weight is not the issue, it's the wellness of it I am ready to tackle. I'm going to take this year and work towards getting healthy.
"If 2020 taught us anything it was that taking care of yourself has to be a priority."
Corden jokingly told Winfrey of his ambition to emulate The Most Electrifying `Man in Sport Entertainment.
"In a year's time we are all going to be so ripped," he said.
"It will be crazy. I will be like The Rock."
