James Corden is usually the one asking the questions, but this time he’s answering them – 73, to be precise.

The Late Late Show host, 37, is the latest celebrity to partake in‘s “73 Questions” series, but instead of showing us around his home à la Taylor Swift or Reese Witherspoon, he takes fans behind the scenes of his CBS studio – and spills more than a few beans along the way.

A few highlights? If he was in a boy band it would be with the four remaining members of O-Town and would be called Insatiable (“because you just can’t get enough”), his last meal on earth would be a Shake Shack burger and he keeps his Tony award in a storage facility in London.

As for what David Beckham is like in person? He “smells amazing,” Corden reveals, while Benedict Cumberbatch is “beautiful.” (Can’t argue with that one.)

We also catch a glimpse of Tori Kelly in the dressing room, prepping for the show, find out that Corden’s preshow ritual is simply to “have a coffee” and learn that he travels around the studio in a chauffeured golf cart (but not really).

Bravest thing he’s ever done? “I did three parachute jumps in two hours.”

Stupidest? See above.

Oh, and his spirit animal is a duck-billed platypus, he can only sort of describe himself in three words (does “I don’t know” count?) and if he had to get a tattoo, he’d get the word “tattoo” on his leg in Japanese.

When it comes dream Carpool Karaoke guest is Beyoncé (no surprise there), and his all-time favorite moment from the segment was when Stevie Wonder called his wife.

The secret to a great interview, according to Corden, is honesty, and his dream Late Late Show guest lineup – dead or alive – would be Prince, Frank Sinatra and Winston Churchill.

As for the best piece of advice he’s ever gotten?

“If you’re doing it wrong, do it strong.” Fair enough.

The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights (12:35 a.m. ET) on CBS, and Corden will be hosting the 70th annual Tony Awards this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
