James Corden believe online hate says more about his trolls than him

James Corden believe the online hate he receives says more about his trolls than him. Here's how he explains his take on it:
The Gavin and Stacey star has become one of the biggest names on the planet over recent years, with him now hosting The Late Late Show over in the States.
But on social media, the 44-year-old can come in for a fair bit of criticism from people who don't even know him.
You only need to search his name on Twitter, and you can see some of the comments made about him, which are often less than flattering.
Most recently, he was branded a 'tiny cretin of a man' after he was rude to staff at Balthazar restaurant in New York, which Corden later apologised for.
Speaking to LADbible, Corden says he believe that the nasty comments and stuff that's said about him online says more about the trolls than it does about him.
"I mean, I'm the wrong person to ask about it because I don't ever read anything," he tells us.
"So I don't read anything. I don't read anything good, I don't read anything bad. I won't see this that we're doing now. I just don't.
"I've decided that that's the best way to do it, because I sort of feel I've had probably more praise than anyone should get in a lifetime. So with that will come inevitable criticism, so I don't really mind."
He added: "My hunch is if I dig down into it, if I ever did, it's probably as much about the person being critical as it is about me."
Corden was speaking ahead of the release of his new Amazon Prime series Mammals, which sees him play Jamie, a chef whose world implodes when he discovers shocking secrets about his pregnant wife, Amandine.

The show's writer Jez Butterworth says he completely agree with Corden's approach to online hate, saying it's simply about jealously.
He adds: "100 percent. We just don't like it when people go over [the US] there and make it... that's awful."
Following the backlash over Corden's comments at the New York restaurant, the actor took the opportunity on his talk show to address the incident.
Apologising for his behaviour, Corden said he 'loved' Balthazar and was deeply sorry for what he said.
"I made a rude comment, and it was wrong," he admitted. "It was an unnecessary comment. It was ungracious to the server."
He added: "I love that restaurant. I love the staff there. I hope I am allowed in again one day, so when I'm back in New York I can go there and apologise in person - which is something I will absolutely do."
Mammals will be available to watch on Amazon Prime from 11 November.
