“Cats” star James Corden says despite everything he hasn’t seen the broadly panned film industry flop — however has heard “it’s terrible.”
The English humorist, who plays Bustopher Jones in Tom Hooper’s version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber exemplary, made the confirmation in a BBC Radio meeting Monday, the UK Independent detailed.
“I haven’t seen it, but I’ve heard it’s terrible,” Corden told host Zoe Ball.
Ball responded: “The reviews have been a bit harsh.”
“My mate Rhys, his wife and two or three went to see it and quite genuinely loved it. And I’m not just saying that because you’re here,” said Corden’s “Gavin & Stacey” co-star Rob Brydon, who was also on the show, per the Huffington Post.
Corden responded: “That has always been the musical ‘Cats.’ I’ll catch it one day, I imagine.”
The film, which cost $100 million to deliver, rounded up just $6.5 million during its opening end of the week and was welcomed by savage feedback.
The studio reported it will send a refreshed adaptation of the flick to theaters with “improved visual effects.”
