James Corden says he still hasn’t seen Cats, but he’s heard a thing or two about his new movie and it’s hair-raising.
The British comedian made the admission Monday in a BBC Radio 2 interview, according to the UK’s Independent.
“I haven’t seen it, but I’ve heard it’s terrible,” Corden told host Zoe Ball. “I’ll catch it one day, I imagine.”
Ball responded, “The reviews have been a bit harsh.”
The Late Late Show host plays Bustopher Jones in Tom Hooper’s adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.
The Universal-Working Title film also stars Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Francesca Hayward, Idris Elba, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson, and Jason Derulo.
The movie musical cost $100 million to produce, but earned a dismal $6.5 million during its opening weekend, well below its $10 million to $15 million projection.
Universal just took the unusual step of sending theaters a new version of the film with “improved visual effects.”
