Late night television king James Corden has delivered a scathing review of New Zealand, describing the country as a "little bit boring".
The host of CBS' smash hit show The Late, Late Show with James Corden made the comment while interviewing actor Bryce Dallas Howard about the Disney-produced Pete's Dragon movie, which was filmed in the South Island - primarily in the small town of Tapanui.
Dallas Howard stars in the film which is expected to be a box-office hit.
"New Zealand ... it's a little bit boring," Corden told his guest.
Corden said climbing up and down hills was necessary for any ventures around New Zealand.
He later repeated his assertion that our slice of Paradise was "boring".
But this afternoon Corden relented, tweeting:
To be clear,I LOVE New Zealand. Saw whales there,sky dived there,did a play in Wellington.I was just being silly! X https://t.co/PcwjH0sbuP— James Corden (@JKCorden) August 6, 2016
