Longtime friends and dual icons Sharon Stone and Elton John cozied up on James Corden’s Late Late Show couch Wednesday night (Feb. 28) to play some games, joke about Stone's terrible singing voice and, most importantly, discuss men, with John revealing some very personal insight into the type of man Stone goes for.

Stone, who was there to promote her romantic comedy All I Wish, told John he could be doing a better job setting her up when asked about her own love life.

Corden pushed on, asking what kind of man she was looking for, to which John replied, “A big one.” Without adding anything else, Stone laughed at his reaction for nearly 15 uninterrupted seconds as both men looked on in delight. John finally broke the spell when he said, “well, it must be true,” which sent Stone back into her hysterical laughing fit.

“That’s right, I like them tall,” she said with a wink, complicating what seemed like a barely concealed innuendo. “Tall and lofty,” John added.

The conversation on men ended there, but the two stayed to play Corden’s “James That Tune” -- a game in which Corden, who’s never played a keyboard, poorly performed John’s songs on a tiny keyboard and the friends had to guess which song he was trying to butcher.

Immediately, James remarked “never had this trouble with Stevie Wonder.” The two stumbled through the guesses, with Corden donning a throwback Elton costume by the end.
