Did you know that Jimmy Fallon and Nicole Kidman almost dated once? No? Neither did Jimmy Fallon.
On The Tonight Show Tuesday, Fallon hosted the
47-year-old seemingly immortal actress to talk about her new film Paddington. Instead, as Fallon revealed that he had met Kidman once before, she revealed something even juicier — that she thought their first meet was a date (or a “hang”).
Explaining first that Fallon’s ship has sailed by now (given the fact that she has been married to Keith Urban since 2006), Kidman gave her side of their now-Internet-legendary meeting all the way back in 2005.
Brought to Fallon’s apartment by a mutual friend, Kidman was single at the time and assumed that she was being set up. Fallon, on the other hand, was nervous about hosting an A-list star and went to his happy place — playing video games and mumbling.
While he did provide a deli brie, Kidman took Fallon’s behavior as disinterest and nothing came of it.
After learning that he presumably had a chance to date one of Hollywood’s most affable and beautiful stars, Fallon crumbled on stage as the band played the “wah wahhhhh.”
It’s pretty much the best piece of unscripted television ever. Watch how Jimmy Fallon blew it with Nicole Kidman in the video above.
