As incredible as it sounds, many years ago Nicole Kidman had a crush on Jimmy Fallon but apparently, he rejected her. How is this possible? You might think, well, it seems there were mixed signals in this situation.

None of them were aware until years later in 2015 when they reunited for an interview on 'The Tonight Show' hosted by Jimmy Fallon. While there, the Australian actress revealed that years ago, when they were not married and with kids, a friend of them tried to set them up.

Nicole was enthusiastic about this until she arrived and realized that Jimmy was “not interested” in her at all. Truth is, that Fallon did not recognize the occasion as a date and thought it was a simple reunion.

Jimmy started telling his version to the audience, revealing that their mutual friend called him and said that Nicole was with him and that they will meet at his apartment in 10 minutes. “You are going to bring Nicole Kidman to my apartment”? An incredulous Jimmy asked.

Without knowing what to do, his friend told him to get some cheese and crackers. This is where Nicole interrupts him and starts giving him her version, and to start the tale, she revealed an incredible fact. “I liked you....but not now.” At this point, Jimmy Fallon looks flabbergasted. “I am married now,” Nicole adds as if she needed clarification.

“Did I date Nicole Kidman?” said Jimmy while Nicole continues the story and reveals while laughing that Jimmy was wearing a baseball cap “And you wouldn’t talk,” Kidman reminded Fallon. “You wouldn’t say anything, and then you put a video game on or something … and so after about an hour and a half, I thought, ‘He has no interest, this is so embarrassing and then I was like, ‘Maybe he’s gay.’”

At the time this happened, Jimmy was embarrassed, to say the least, and from there the interview could not go on because they could not stop giggling.

Fortunately, there was another interview years later but Nicole had another embarrassing story to tell. The actress admitted that during a David Fincher's dinner they were left alone in the kitchen and while she was waiting for him to ask for her address or her phone, Jimmy Fallon ignored her.

The surprising part here is that Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman's husband made a special appearance on the show and what continued was completely fun and awkward since the musician sat on the couch and Nicole sat on his lap while Jimmy laughed at this. There was also a third one but there they seemed quite a little bit relaxed, although their chemistry is very palpable despite years have passed.
