James Corden bonded with One Direction members Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles before the band's rise to fame by playing video games and eating pizza.
The 'One Chance' star is known for his celebrity friends - including the likes of David Beckham and Vogue US editor Anna Wintour - but he has explained how he became close to Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson before they truly rose to fame.
James told The Observer Magazine: ''So, Louis Tomlinson who is a member of One Direction, his mum was a chaperone on [TV drama] 'Fat Friends'.
''So Louis used to come to the set with his mum and since I was the only sort of young person around we would kick a football around, things like that.
''Then when he got into 'The X Factor', he got in touch and said, 'I'm in London and I don't know anybody'. So he brought Harry round and we played Fifa and had a pizza, so that's how [we became friends].''
He described Harry as ''adorable'' and insisted he needs ''normal people'' around to help keep him grounded given how much his life has changed since the TV talent show.
He added: ''He's an adorable guy and I can't begin to imagine what his life is like right now and how it's changed in the past three years.
''And, I feel like he more normal people he has around, probably the better.''
