Best Pinch Me Moment
Driving around with Stevie Wonder for "Carpool Karaoke" and having him call my wife and sing, I just called to say James loves you. Afterward she said, "What's happening to our lives?"

Best Obsession
When I was younger, I used to play a soccer game called Football Manager on the computer. I genuinely lost hundreds of thousands of hours of my life to that game. Since I now shoot The Late Late Show five days a week, the weekends are all about spending time with my family—so my wife won't ever let me download it again.

Best Guilty Pleasure
A Shake Shack burger. I'm deeply thankful for the line that wraps around the restaurant because it's the only thing that stops me from heading inside every day.

Best Father's Day
Five years ago, I was riding around with my dad—he's a salesman and spends all day in his car—when I realized that he'd used masking tape to hold a bit of the door together. So on Father's Day, I handed him a plain box—and inside was the key to a new Audi. He just started crying his eyes out. It's a great memory.

Best Advice
All that matters is this moment. Everything behind you is gone, and everything in front of you is unknown, so all you can ever do is be the best version of yourself right now.

Best Way to Unwind
Lying down and doing absolutely nothing. I'm really good at that. I could spend an entire day staring at the corner of a rug.
