Jimmy Fallon and Nicole Kidman just weren’t meant to be! Kidman visited “The Tonight Show” back in 2015 and revealed how Fallon missed his shot at a relationship with her. The performer explained that she and Fallon had a mutual friend named Rick who tried to help link them up. After Rick got wind that Kidman had a crush on Fallon, he stepped in and arranged for the two to meet at Fallon’s apartment. Fallon, however, was told that the meeting was professional, with the focus of discussing Fallon potentially having a part in Kidman’s then-upcoming movie reboot of “Bewitched.”

Kidman said that Fallon didn’t show any romantic interest in her during the meeting. “I just remember, I liked you,” Kidman said, which elicited a stunned expression from Fallon. The “Lion” actor went on to state that Fallon “didn’t say anything” to her at the time and ended up putting on a video game. “And so after about an hour and a half, I thought, ‘He has no interest. This is so embarrassing,'” Kidman added. Fallon then stated, “I had no clue at all,” before adding, “I am in shock right now.” Of course, the anecdote has since become a sort of inside joke between the two stars, according to The Week.
