The internet collectively fell in love with actor Noah Centineo this summer when he co-starred in Netflix’s teen rom-com, “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.”
And apparently, so did James Corden.
In a segment on “The Late Late Show,” Centineo arrives in the studio after receiving a mysterious letter from Corden (sound familiar?).
“Noah Centineo, you’re so hot,” the letter reads. “Like, stupid hot. Hot in the way where you don’t even know it, but you, like, totally know it. Sometimes I fantasize about having you as a guest on the show.”
Centineo isn’t ready to formally label himself as Corden’s guest, but he’s down to “see where this goes.”
Cue the two walking through the “Late Late” office with hands in each other’s back pockets, a la “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.”
Jenny Han, the author of the “To All the Boys” book, tweeted her approval of Corden’s portrayal: “So impressed with James’s back pocket spin execution. He really did capture the spirit of Lara Jean.”

Things seem to be going well – Centineo even later agrees to be a guest on the show. But suddenly there’s trouble in paradise: Corden finds out his isn’t the only late night show Centineo has been on, and it turns out Centineo isn’t the only celeb Corden sent a letter to.
“What is this?” Centineo asks, flipping through a stack of unopened letters. “Tom Cruise? Harry Styles, Halsey, Chris Pratt? Chris Pine? Chris Hemsworth? What, did you write a letter to every Chris in Hollywood?… I thought that I was the only one.”
Centineo storms out, and it’s beginning to look like he may not be a guest on “The Late Late Show” after all. That is, until Corden shows up at Centineo’s dressing room with a stack of cue cards to reference another great rom-com: “Love Actually.”
“Say it’s carol singers,” the first card reads. “I’m so sorry. To me, you are perfect. Noah Centineo, will you be my guest tonight?”
We won’t spoil the ending for you, but, like all great rom-coms, this one has the perfect heartwarming finale.
Check out the full segment below. Fans, keep an eye out for the three times Centineo brings back his character’s signature “woah, woah, woah” catchphrase.
