The Rocket Man hitmaker called out Italian style moguls Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana over the weekend (14-15Mar15) over a magazine interview in which they called children born via in vitro fertilisation (IVF) "chemical offsprings" from a "rented uterus".

He called for a boycott of the designers' goods and garnered the support of fellow gay parents Ricky Martin and Glee creator Ryan Murphy, among other stars, and now Into the Woods actor Corden has given his backing during a visit to The Talk on Monday (16Mar15).

Corden, who is prepping to take over U.S. chat series The Late Late Show next Monday (23Mar15), was asked what his thoughts were on the boycott, and he said, "Well, I'll tell you this - I came here and there was a man to give me clothes and he had some Dolce & Gabbana shoes."

The funnyman lifted his foot onto the table, showing he came on the set wearing only black socks.

Corden added that not only does he disagree with the designers' statements, but he has a special connection to IVF treatments as well, saying, "Here's the thing - the executive producer of The Late Late Show is my friend Ben Winston who's been my best friend for years. His father is Professor Lord Robert Winston, who created IVF and fertility treatment. And his reason for doing it was because he was heartbroken at the volume of people who felt their lives weren't complete until they could become parents.

"And he spent hours and weeks and years creating this thing which has allowed millions of people to have children. So to disrespect all of them - whether gay, straight, anything - to call them 'synthetic' in any way is disrespectful to people for who it has already been a struggle, and a tough thing to go through and it feels so unnecessary to me."
