Jimmy Fallon’s 2016 interview with Nicole Kidman didn’t really stand a chance. Things turned awkward when the comedian began laughing nervously right off the bat. In response, the actress playfully rolled her eyes but fidgeted in her seat, semi-jokingly saying, “I so didn’t wanna come back.” While this caused Fallon to hysterically crack up, Kidman pressed on in an attempt to keep the interview on track. “I’m in a new movie, Lion, so that’s why I’m here,” she told the host, who appeared to have plans of his own.
Fallon began rehashing the starlet’s previous appearance on his show the year before … which had been mega uncomfortable in and of itself. At the time, it was revealed that the duo once went out on a date together years before. The problem? The SNL alum totally blew his chance with the Hollywood beauty. After admitting that she’d had a crush on Fallon at the time, Kidman explained that she’d asked a mutual friend to set them up. However, when she went over to the comedian’s crib, he “wouldn’t talk” to her and ended up playing video games for an hour before she gave up and left. With a laugh, Kidman told the embarrassed host, “It was bad!” For his part, Fallon claimed he didn’t realize it was an actual date at the time. But still, talk about cringe.
