James Corden has been open about his weight-loss journey, and he's shared just as many stories of hardship as he has of his triumph.

And it seems as though the Late Late Show host is still not where he wants to be in terms of weight goals as he candidly opened up about what the process has been like for him.

Appearing virtually on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show, Corden, 42, chatted with Stern, 67, about his fitness journey.

After seeing Corden last on his radio show back in 2019, Stern complimented Corden on his slimmer frame and said he "looks like a new man".

Gushing over the compliment, the Gavin & Stacey actor revealed he lost 35lbs so far. "I feel like I'm getting better," he said. "I'm trying, but I feel like there's still a way to go."

When asked if he works out, Corden said: "I'm trying to, but I suck at it. I'm so bad at it. It's terrible.

"There are so few hours in the day that are just my own, do you know what I mean? I've got three young kids. We have the show and all these things. I feel like, 'Hang on a minute. I've got an hour here where I'm on my own, and I'm doing something that I absolutely hate."

Corden added: "I should just be lying down, you know?"

He then admitted that he's no longer looking to personal trainers for help, due to past experiences which left him frustrated.

"I don't trust them," Corden told Stern and co-host Robin Quivers. "I don't think they want me to lose weight quickly."

Admitting he's "burned through" around 75 personal trainers so far, Corden explained what made him have major trust issues with them.

Corden recalled telling trainers he wanted to lose weight quickly, but he said after trainers pump him up mentally and get him in the mental zone, he came to find the results were not what he'd hoped.

"And then I realized, 'Oh, you're paid by the hour'. Of course you don't want me to shift this quickly."

Elsewhere in the interview, Stern asked Corden if he'd purchased new clothes due to his slimming figure.

"For some time now, I've had three separate wardrobes, three sections of a closet," Corden said. "So 'You're an Embarrassment,' there's a section that says 'You've Gotta Do Better' and there's a section that says 'Yeah Baby, You're Really Doing This.'

"And that [embarrassment section] on the far right has not been used in a while, so I'm quite enjoying dipping into some of those [other] clothes. But no, I've not bought masses of clothes."

"I'm hopeful there's still a way to go," Corden added.
