Things got real on "The Late Late Show" last night.

"I just can't believe you guys have come to see me," James Corden cried.

There are special eye drops that can help, but they might sting a little.

"This is the perfect movie star tear you have going right now," Joshua said.

"Wait, now look three-quarters away and slightly up," he continued.

Anna's next movie is "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip," so we probably won't get to see how well her crying trick works there. But maybe we'll see it in action with Joshua on Showtime's "The Affair."
