The 39 year old British ‘Late Late Show’ host was joined by guests John Boyega and Drew Barrymore on Wednesday night’s edition of the show, and they played the now-infamous truth-or-dare game ‘Spill Your Guts Or Fill Your Guts’. The segment, as ever, requires the guest to either answer a revealing personal or professional question, or eat/drink some disgusting mystery item.

James Corden Domhnall Gleeson
