During an interview with Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2 on Monday, December 23, the comedian made the surprising confession saying, “I haven’t seen it. I’ve heard it’s terrible,” when asked about the project. Zoe told the actor, “The reviews have been a bit harsh,” to which James jokingly replied, “It’s got some brilliant reviews!”

The late-night talk show host wasn’t the only cast member who had something to say about the film. Pop star Jason Derulo, who played Rum Tum Tugger in the movie, admitted that he was displeased with critics’ poor opinion. When questioned by paparazzi in New York City on Thursday, December 19, the “Talk Dirty” singer, 30, said that he thought the film was a “deportation to another dimension.” Adding, “Reviews don’t matter man, reviews don’t matter,” calling the film an “incredibly brave piece of art.”

The actor also told Variety that while he would love to sing along with Taylor, it also depended on the “Shake It Off” singer’s schedule.  James revealed that it took 19 months to finally make Sir Paul McCartney’s Carpool Karaoke episode happen. “These are very busy people that you’re dealing with whose lives are often planned and mapped out years in advance,” the talk show host explained. “So, I hope so.”
