Between his joyful "Carpool Karaoke" sessions and his hilarious musical spoofs, late-night talk show host James Corden appears as if he could get along with just about anyone. However, The Late Late Show host learned the hard way that that's not the case. During a 2017 interview, Corden admitted that one celebrity in particular had been rude to him and you won't want to believe it's true. Read on to find out which actor Corden called out as the rudest celebrity he's met and for more unsavory stars, take a look at A Restaurant Server Just Rated Celebrities Based on How Rude They Are.

Corden's "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts" segment on The Late Late Show involves celebrities and the host being asked revealing questions; if they choose not to answer, they must eat or drink one of the truly vial things in front of them, like cod sperm or bird saliva. During a 2017 round with Khloe Kardashian, Corden was asked to name a celebrity who had been rude to him in the past. At first, he seemed hesitant to reveal his answer. "There was someone," Corden responded. "But I don't know if we're going to try to book him on the show."

With a glass full of bird saliva staring him in the face and Kardashian continuing to question him, Corden caved and admitted that Pierce Brosnan had been the rude celebrity. "I don't think he's a rude man, he just happened to be [to me]," he said.

Corden explained that he had gone to a U2 concert with his wife and friends and that Brosnan had been nearby with a group of his friends, too. When Brosnan and his friends left halfway through the show and didn't return for some time, Corden and his crew moved closer to the stage into that nearby area. "So me and my wife moved into this area, and literally, I've never felt anything like it, this arm went on [mine] and just pushed me out of the way," Corden said about Brosnan. "And I looked at him and he didn't even glance at me, he just moved back into his area—just like that."

When Kardashian suggested that he may have just been drunk, Corden quipped back, "Maybe he's just a bit f****** rude."

Brosnan hasn't appeared on Corden's late-night show since he took over in 2015, but that could just be a coincidence.

Of course, Brosnan isn't the only celebrity who hosts have called out. To find out what other stars have landed on hosts' you-know-what lists, keep reading. And for more on Brosnan's brood, check out Pierce Brosnan's Model Sons Will Totally Remind You of Their Dad.

Russell Brand's brand of comedy probably makes this one less surprising, but Chelsea Handler, comedian and former host of Chelsea Lately, called him out for being a diva. "The only person who was a pain in the a** was Russell Brand," Handler told Grazia. "He stopped all of our production schedules because he needed three espressos before he could even come on for his interview." Yikes!

Another longstanding late-night host Conan O'Brien had his worst interview in 1996 with filmmaker Abel Ferrara, but the chaos began before his infamous sit-down even started. "He fled during the show before his segment," O'Brien said of Ferrara during a 2018 interview on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast. "He ran away, got on the elevator, and was out on the street running away."

But it didn't stop there. While Late Night producer Frank Smiley was able to get the director back in the studio, "he came on camera against his will, came out, and started yelling at me," O'Brien recalled.

On an episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Today anchor Hoda Kotb and her former co-host Kathie Lee Gifford admitted that they had a hard time with one guest in particular. "It's Frank Sinatra Jr. It was the worst guest we've ever had, bar none," Kotb responded when asked by Gifford to reveal their worst guest. "He had a book he was promoting, and he didn't want to talk about it, so he didn't say anything. So weird."
