Naomi Watts not only teased Jimmy Fallon about his crush on Nicole Kidman, but she also showed she can do a split on Friday’s “Tonight Show.” Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop reported, when Kidman was on the “Tonight Show” in 2015, she revealed she and Fallon had a failed date years prior. The host was mortified, as he didn’t realize it was a date at the time, and Kidman even admitted she left the encounter thinking he was gay. Now two years later, the topic came up when the actress’ best friend appeared on the program.
“How’s our pal Nicole Kidman?” Fallon asked. “How’s she doing?” Watts laughed and responded, “Your ex-crush, right?” The host dramatically fanned himself and called himself a “loser.” Remarked Watts, “Well, she said some nice things about you. I know you guys are all happily married and everything now, so I don’t want to say anything. She is officially off the market. And you are.”
Watts then amusingly said, “But you should’ve talked to me. I could’ve been your wingman at the time.” Fallon responded, “Really?! I knew you were pals, but I didn’t know you were best buds.” She told him, “Oh, yeah. We’ve been friends for a really long time, like decades.” That led the TV personality to urge, “Tell her I say hi.” Fallon actually had a photo of the two stars to show on screen, taken from Watts’ Instagram just two weeks ago. She revealed the picture was from a party, which prompted him to crack, “I didn’t get an invite.”
“So sorry,” Watts told him. “Mostly it was girls.” Fallon hilariously shrugged, saying, “I mean, I’m fine. I love girls.” He wanted to know all about Kidman’s dancing at the shindig, and said he can “stop by” next time and “do some stand-up or whatever.” After discussing Watts’ film The Glass Castle, Fallon brought up dancing again, and asked if she can still jump up and do a split.
She replied, “I mean, I’d have to have tequila.” He didn’t have any, but Watts still volunteered to take off her heels and give it a go. Watch the full video below!
