On The Late Late Show, James Corden got his guests Hilary Swank, Shawn Mendes and Zach Woods to amuse him in a game of "Flinch" Wednesday night and, unlike Woods who was basically wearing his martini afterwards, Swank barely moved at all!
The game is simple. Each guest took a turn standing behind a sheet of glass, holding a martini (in 19-year-old Mendes's case- a martini glass of milk), while Corden catapulted a piece of fruit directly at their face. Their challenge was to not "Flinch" at all.
First up was Woods, who told Corden and the audience, "I got ice water in my veins." And when Corden unexpectedly launched a piece of fruit at Woods mid-sentence, the actor totally jumped. Unlike Woods who didn't seem super amused, Swank looked super cool, calm and collected as she stood behind the glass, even though she told Corden that she felt a little bit nervous. "But you are such a badass," Corden insisted to Swank. "There's nothing you're scared of." However, Swank admitted that that wasn't true. So, when Corden asked the actress what she is afraid of, she simply responded, "Fruit being thrown out of your mouth at me."
For Swank and Woods, Corden played the element of surprise. But for poor Shawn Mendes, Corden decided to mess with the singer a bit by really building up the suspense. Not knowing exactly when Corden would finally shoot the dang avocado at him, Mendes hilariously shared how uncomfortable he felt by the anticipation.
However, in the end, Mendes didn't let the suspense get to him too much, as he barely flinched, but it was still really fun to watch.
