James Corden ''loves bondage''.

The 'Into the Woods' star joked he can't wait to see 'Fifty Shades of Grey' but is worried the raunchy movie, which stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, won't be racy enough for his tastes.

James- who has children Max, three, and Carey, three months, with wife Julia - said: ''I cannot wait. I'm a huge fan of Jamie Dornan's. And I love bondage. I'm just worried that it won't be dark enough for me. I'm into some quite dark stuff.''

James is currently preparing to begin hosting 'The Late, Late Show' and is particularly excited about getting his friends One Direction on the show.

He told E! Online: ''I've known them for a long time, that band, and I love them all very much.

''I class them all as friends and I've known Louis [Tomlinson] since before he was in One Direction.

''They're really special boys. I love them very much. I can't wait for them to come on the show.''

Ahead of his debut show, the 36-year-old star has been taking advice from other talk show hosts.

Speaking at Vanity Fair's Young Hollywood party, which he hosted last night (18.02.15), he told Vanity Fair: ''Everyone has been great. I had a great chat with Jay Leno the other night on the phone. He was absolutely adorable. And Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers [have also reached out].

''Mostly people just say, 'You've got to be yourself,' you know? Which I think means our show is going to be a disaster. But we'll try.''
