Jimmy Fallon Almost Dated Nicole Kidman; He Just Didn’t Know It

Poor Jimmy Fallon! He just discovered he had a shot at Nicole Kidman, but he blew it! If you haven’t seen this viral video, you need to watch it now and understand why it’s important that you’re always on your best behavior and look when out with a woman.

On a recent episode of “The Tonight Show,” Nicole Kidman shared a funny yet awkward story that made the host, Jimmy Fallon, hide underneath his desk. Despite belonging to the same industry, the two have not seen each other in person except for an incident where they were on a “date.” Over the years, the two have had different memories on how their first meeting was. Kidman took the guesting opportunity to share the story with Fallon and his viewers.


For Kidman, the idea was that she was going to “hang out” with Fallon. The host, however, was completely oblivious to the meeting and did not think much of it.

Fallon: I don’t know if you remember this, but we met before.

Kidman: Oh, I remember. Yeah, you tell your version (of the story).

As Fallon recalls it, he was walking around New York when he received a call from his friend, Rick. His friend told him that Nicole Kidman wanted to meet him. The host thought that the actress wanted him to be in her “Bewitched” movie or “something like that.”

When he was done sharing his version, Kidman says that it had nothing to do with “Bewitched” or any movie.

Fallon apparently did not know that it was a romantic date that his friend had set him up on. Bewildered, Fallon then asked if he dated Kidman.

It turns out that if he did, Fallon didn’t do it very well because Kidman was unimpressed by him and thought he was gay.

As soon as Kidman arrived in the comedian’s apartment, he was wearing a baseball cap, and there was nothing between them. Kidman shares that Fallon did not talk to her in his apartment. Instead, he just put on a video game, to which Kidman thought to herself, “This is so bad.”

While Kidman was saying this, Fallon was so embarrassed that he went underneath his desk to hide. Unfortunately for him, Kidman was not done with her side of the story yet.


To his defense, Fallon swears that he did not have any clue that he could have dated the Australian actress.

Kidman believes that they weren’t just meant for each other. In 2006, Kidman married country star Keith Urban while Fallon married movie producer Nancy Juvonen a year later. They each have kids with their respective partners.

Kidman shares that she and her husband watch the show at home and even thought about bringing up the story.

Now the world knows this embarrassing story of how Jimmy Fallon almost dated Nicole Kidman!
