• James Corden is best known from 'The Late Late Show'
  • He is being praised for diffusing a public dispute
  • THIS is the scoop and why he is a hero

Actor James Corden found himself in the spotlight once again, but this time, for a surprisingly heroic reason. After a flight from Portugal to the UK was forced to make an emergency landing, Corden stepped up to defend stranded travelers, a stark contrast to his 2022 restaurant ban for rude behavior. 

A flight to remember

In an astonishing turn of events, James Corden, the comedian once infamous for his ban from a New York eatery, is now being hailed as a defender of the people! Yes, you read that right. Corden, known for his cheeky humor and carpool karaoke, was seen in a different light this Sunday after a flight from Portugal to the UK took an unexpected turn.

Passengers aboard the flight were in for a surprise when their journey was interrupted by an emergency landing. But the real shock came when James Corden, instead of throwing a celebrity tantrum, stood up for his fellow travelers, engaging with airport staff to ensure everyone's safety and comfort.

Images of Corden talking to airport workers quickly made the rounds on social media, sparking initial assumptions of misconduct. However, a fellow passenger came forward to set the record straight – James was actually playing the role of a hero, advocating for those stranded alongside him.

Eyewitnesses tell ET, "James was not the only person who was upset about the flight.

He was nothing but a true gentleman to other passengers. James spoke to everyone and spent time with them."

They continue, "He took selfies with people and chatted with them to kill the time. It was chaotic and a traumatic experience for many, but the crew and flight crew were helpful in this distressing time."

Passenger Vanessa said, "It was something along the lines of, Gather your possessions as best you can, take off your shoes, and when you’re told to by the airplane staff, please adopt the brace position and when we land if you’re able, please find your nearest emergency exit and vacate the plane."

However, the crew later informed passengers they no longer needed to brace. Despite this, the plane remained grounded on the tarmac in Lisbon for three hours before ultimately being deemed unsafe for further flight and taken out of service.

This incident sheds new light on James Corden's character, challenging the narrative that followed him after his 2022 restaurant debacle. It's a reminder that people can surprise us, and even celebrities have moments of genuine kindness and leadership.

The next day, when the exhausted passengers returned for their rescheduled flight, Vanessa said Corden was again a "lovely guy," allowing women and children to go ahead of him in the queue.

Corden's actions on that fateful flight serve as a powerful example of redemption and the impact of standing up for others. It's a story that goes beyond celebrity gossip, touching on themes of empathy, responsibility, and the unexpected ways we can find ourselves in the role of a hero.
