Even if you limit your open bar to just wine and beer, there will always be that one guy who overindulges at the wedding reception. And The Crown's Matt Smith was that guy. During his recent appearance on the former groom's talk show, the actor revealed the intoxicating tale of how he got hilariously hammered at James Corden's wedding. Fair warning: This rager of a reception will give you some serious FOMO.
On last Thursday's The Late Late Show, talk turned to the host's wedding five years ago, when Corden's friend Matt Smith stopped by. "Oh, no!" Smith exclaimed when the subject of Corden's nuptials first came up. "Don't mention the wall!"
Smith had scored an invite, along with some other famous faces, like Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody and comedians David Walliams and Jimmy Carr. But it was the former Doctor Who star who stole the show.
"You were the star of our wedding in many ways," Corden said, according to E! News. "Do you remember anything about that day?" Oh, he sure does.
"I've got a scar on my chin where I fell up the stairs," recalled Smith. "I fell in a fire[place]—twice! It wasn't alight, thank God; I am a fire hazard. I danced with Kylie Minogue, which was glorious. And then your dad put me in a car." Told you he was that guy....
"At the end, he was like, 'Matt...come on, son. It's time. It's time.' He put me in the car; it was a silver Mercedes. I got in, and I closed the door, and I got around the side and ran back inside!"
While the details of the day might be hazy, one thing's for sure: James Cordon and his wife, Julia Carey, definitely know how to throw a party. "What a wedding!" Smith said.
"A good wedding!" the groom himself agreed. "It was a good wedding!"
Cheers to that!
