On Thursday, Nov. 17, Nicole Kidman dropped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to promote her new movie “Lion.”
However, it turns out that the film wasn’t the biggest topic of the night.
Right as Nicole sat down, host Jimmy Fallon recalled a conversation they had back in 2015 — the last time the Oscar winner was on the show. It was then that Nicole revealed to Jimmy that he lost out on his opportunity to date her before she met and married country music superstar Keith Urban.
According to Nicole, she first met Jimmy years ago through a friend. He led her to Jimmy’s apartment to see if their was a romantic connection. But, when Jimmy seemed to be more focused on playing video games, Nicole took it as a sign that he was disinterested. But, Jimmy doesn’t see it that way. In fact, he was shocked that Nicole ever even had eyes for him.
“I so didn’t want to come back,” an embarrassed Nicole admitted about returning to the show before adding that there was more to the story.
Apparently Jimmy had ample opportunity to try and win over Nicole’s heart. Nicole said that the two crossed paths at a buffet party thrown by producer David Fincher.
“You could’ve asked for my number then, because it was round two,” she said, “and you still didn’t ask for it. We were lurking in the kitchen and everyone went out, and I was waiting, and waiting, and waiting.”
While Jimmy was still processing the new information, Nicole decided to throw in another surprise. Adding salt to his wounds, she revealed that she brought hubby Keith along and said that he wanted to come take care of her on the set. That’s when Keith emerged from behind the stage with guitar in hand. He busted out a practiced and polished version of Gary White’s “Dream Weaver.”
Following that, Nicole made it clear that she’s no longer available by sitting on her country hubby’s lap.
“I get it. I get it. I get it,” laughed Jimmy.
