That’ll teach ya to try and punch a virgin! ‘Jane the Virgin’ star, Gina Rodriguez, dropped by ‘The Late Late Show’ to duke it out with host, James Corden. No, literally, she punched him in the face. Watch and enjoy!
Uh, ouch. Gina Rodriguez, 31, was throwing actual punches when she guested on the Nov. 24 episode of The Late Late Show. When host, James Corden, 37, outed Gina as a boxer, James suggested they go head to head, an idea he surely regretted after the Jane the Virgin star smacked him right in the kisser. Sorry James but, honestly, it’s hilarious. See for yourself!
Though it’s amazing regardless of how it came about, we should probably explain that the subject of punching wasn’t so random. Actually, Gina revealed that she had just returned from a trip to Las Vegas, where she watched the fight between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Miguel Cotto.
“You can do a bit of boxing, right?” James asked Gina, as he threw to a video of Gina in an actual boxing ring, beating up some poor dude. “You’ve got some combinations down. Do you want to show me?” he (unwisely) asks.
The two take their stances and, before James even knew what hit him, Gina gives him a nice little pow in his face! She immediately apologized, seemingly not having meant to actually hit him in his “money-maker.” He was, understandably, stunned– and a little freaked out!
Perhaps the best part about this whole interaction is that comedienne and iconic badass, Roseanne Barr, 63, was the other guest, and watched from the couch as the entire altercation went down. Naturally, she knew not to interfere with a woman at work.
What do you think of Gina punching James? Is it hilarious or, like, not funny?
