Here is the dialogue between James Corden, Viggo Mortensen and Kurt Russell:

James Corden: Viggo, you’ve been to a lot of red carpets recently and one of my favorite things is that you came up with a very clever way to answer the questions about who you saw. When journalists ask you which designer you wear, you answer something wonderful. Tell us what you do.

Viggo Mortensen: I mention players, some may have died, but they are legendary players.

James Corden: Sure.

Viggo Mortensen: In the minds of the fans of that team only, but I say their names. For example, Bambino Veira.

Kurt Russell: Gabriel Batistuta …

Viggo Mortensen: I did it once at the festival in Rome. (Simulates a dialogue) Bambino Veira? I never heard from him. Who is it? And I had to invent … Well, he’s a 93-year-old man, he lives in Naples, he only makes 11 suits a year, only 11 and he’s blind, so he has his granddaughter, who is beautiful, and she helps him, she sews , but he draws them abstractly because he can’t see …
