Imagine if your own name was a terrible tongue twister. Now imagine James Corden demanding that you repeat it over and over as fast as you can in front of a live audience.
Now you know the nightmare that is Dame Judi Dench’s existence. The actress went on The Late Late Show with James Corden and was asked to participate in the “Dame Judi Dench challenge”, which consists of repeating the words “Dame Judi Dench” as fast as possible.
She was shown footage of previous guests (Michael Keaton, Olivia Munn and Russell Brand, to name a few) trying to repeat her name as fast as they could, with varying levels of success. Finally it was Dench’s turn, and despite her claiming that she could only manage four rounds, she did remarkably well.
She truly is a woman of many talents.
