Young SNL Jimmy Fallon was just as clueless as your old high school crush.
During The Tonight Show interview, the two begin to chat about the last time they had seen each other many, many years ago. At Fallon’s apartment. The encounter included old Chinese food, Saltines and video games. It was not good… but it was hilarious and embarrassing.
Fallon begins the tale by saying he got a call from his friend that Kidman wanted to talk to him about a role in a movie… at his apartment. He begins the interview by saying, “I don’t know if you remember this, but we’ve met before.” To which Kidman replies, “Oh, I remember…,” and nods her head, smiling and laughing. Fallon says it was embarrassing for him.
Well, he doesn’t even know how embarrassing it’s about to get!
When Kidman takes over to tell Fallon “how she remembers it,” things get really comical. The hilarious interview leaves the chatty talk show host red-faced and almost speechless as Kidman begins to recall her side of their encounter. Fallon thought the visit was all business, but Kidman had other designs.
She tells Fallon that she liked him, which literally floors the host. “I just remember I liked you,” she says.
Fallon falls on the floor.
Kidman talks about how awkward Fallon was, and he claims he was just nervous. “And then you put a video game on or something and I was like, ‘This is so bad.'”
Bad, indeed. Way to go, Jimmy.
“So after about an hour and a half I thought, ‘He has no interest, this is so embarrassing. And I left and went, ‘OK, no chemistry,’ and I was like, “Maybe he’s gay!'”
Of course, Fallon now claims to have dated Kidman.
