Jimmy Fallon and Nicole Kidman were inhumanly awkward together last night, and it was perfection

Most of us will remember that time when Nicole Kidman went on Jimmy Fallon’s show and admitted — much to his complete surprise — that she had a crush on him years ago and thought a casual meet up was maybe a date (he had no idea).

Well Fallon and Kidman got awkward all over again, and it just might be better than that first time. In fact, it might even be better than when we found out about the hilarious way Fallon and John Stamos first met (Stamos accidentally put his thumb in Jimmy’s mouth), or when Fallon revealed his five favorite Gilmore Girls characters. Because these two have actual crush history.

Kidman even admitted she didn’t want to come back to the show!


"It was a shocker to say the least, but the past is the past. Let's leave it that way," said Fallon.

Except…he didn’t leave it AT ALL.

"Hey, Thanksgiving is coming up. If I'm in Nashville, maybe I can stop by for dinner or something."

Wow…the stone cold looks that Kidman is giving him, and the puppy dog eyes that Fallon is returning (to the song “Dreamweaver”)…we’re in love with how cringe-worthy this is.

She thinks she’s there to promote her movie Lion, but really it’s just so that Fallon can recall special moments from their past and try to get Kidman to fall for him (as a joke of course; they’re both married now).

Naturally, he just couldn’t get over THIS MOMENT!

Oh, Jimmy. Poor Jimmy.

We can’t wait for the next time Nicole drops by his show, because we have a feeling things will escalate even further. And we’re ready for it.
