Jimmy Fallon was left mortified when Nicole Kidman appeared on The Tonight Show earlier this week – and the actress revealed that he blew the chance to date her.
Kidman explained that the pair met once before when a mutual friend arranged for the actress to call in at Fallon’s apartment. Kidman thought she was visiting for a casual date, but Fallon presumed it was a work-related meeting.
“Well I get there,” Kidman recalled, “and you’re there in a baseball cap, and like – nothing. You wouldn’t talk, you didn’t say anything you were like, ‘Hey, mmm, mmm, mmm!'”
An embarrassed-looking Fallon then replied: “I didn’t say, ‘Mmm mmm mmm,’ I was nervous! I didn’t know this was a thing, I thought it was [about] a movie or something.”
Kidman proceeded to correct the chatshow host. “Well, it was like a hang,” she said. “And then you put a video game on or something and I was like, ‘This is so bad.’ And you didn’t talk at all. So after about an hour and I half I thought, ‘He has no interest, this is so embarrassing.’ So I left, and went, ‘Okay, no chemistry. Maybe he’s gay?'”
