WATCH: Feel Uncomfortable While Jimmy Fallon and Nicole Kidman Discuss Their Failed Dating History
Kidman returned to The Tonight Show to elaborate on how Fallon unwittingly put up a firewall around their untapped romance when they first met years ago — a story that was revealed to the public (and Fallon!) during her first appearance on his talk show. Kidman recalled their follow-up meeting to the brie cheese incident when they both attended an event at David Fincher’s house.
“It was when Brad [Pitt] and Jen [Aniston] were still together, so it was a long time ago. And you could have asked for my number then because it was round two – well, second chance. And you still didn’t ask for it. And you know that’s true, so do not pretend,” said Kidman.
The actress’s agent told her that Fallon was going to be there and that he would ask for her number. “Everyone went out, and I’m waiting and waiting and waiting,” Kidman continued. “And you’re at the buffet, and this is so true and you know it. And you still didn’t ask for my number, so you were so not interested.”
Fallon and Kidman continue to explore their love for each other, Steve Higgins, and the song “Dream Weaver” before Kidman’s husband, Keith Urban, crashes their fantasy. Watch the segment play out in the player at the top of the page.
