James Corden is going on a “year of health” journey in 2021 and he just joined WW, the company formerly known as Weight Watchers, as their new spokesperson.
The 42-year-old talk show host and The Prom actor made a video confessional that was posted to the company’s YouTube page on New Year’s Day.
“I’ve realized that every year for the past decade — probably even 15 years —on January the first I’ve told myself and anyone that would listen that I’m going on a diet, I’m going to lose a load of weight,” James said in the video. “I’m fed up with the way I look, I’m fed up with being unhealthy, this is the year I’m doing it. Because of that, over Christmas I’ve eaten everything that’s in the fridge because in my head in January I’m starting this diet and it’ll be a success. And as you can see it hasn’t.
James continued, “It’s starting to get me down in a way. I’ve never been able to stick to anything like that. I’ve spent a long time accepting that this is my body and that’s it. But I really am sick and tired of just doing the same thing every year.”
James teamed up with WW and they’re giving away 100,000 free 3-month digital memberships to those currently enduring financial hardships.
