On Monday’s Late Late Show, Corden took a break from the giggles and gave a wonderful shout out to the 65-year-old Olympian and Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.
The British funnyman called Jenner’s televised announcement that he is transgender as “the most incredible piece of television that I’ve seen in years.”
“So many of us will never know what it’s like to go through such a thing. The life that he’s been trapped in… and I thought, the truth is there are people out there for whom this struggle is very real and it’s very, very hard. It’s hard for them and it’s hard for their families.”
“He is ready for the challenge and ready to help other people’s lives that might be going through the same things that he’s going through,” Kim Kardashian said on Monday. “And that’s something that he’s really proud of, and that’s something that he is really ready to take on.”
