LOS ANGELES, Oct 17 — Nicole Kidman has finally addressed that kiss with Alexander Skarsgard at the 2017 Emmy Awards that set social media abuzz.
During last month’s awards ceremony, Skarsgard won Best Supporting Actor for his role in Big Little Lies.
As he walked to the stage to accept his award, cameras captured Skarsgard and his on-screen wife Kidman sharing a lip lock while her husband Keith Urban looked on and applauded.
Kidman was asked about the now-viral smooch during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
After host Norton showed a picture of the duo’s embrace, Kidman replied, “You are so provocative Graham. Why are you showing that?”
Norton replied, “It’s a lovely moment of celebration, Nicole.”
“I kissed my husband too!” she responded. “I did kiss him, because you’ve got to understand, I did everything with Alex.”
Norton quipped: “We saw it!”
Kidman then tried to explain her working relationship with Skarsgard, with whom she shared a lot of emotional scenes in Big Little Lies.
“Alright, I’m backing off. I’ve got an amazing, supportive, gorgeous husband who I love more than anything in the world,” she said. “And I gave Alex a congratulatory kiss and he’s like a mannequin.”
Realising what she just said, a flustered Kidman stating, “I mean, not a mannequin!” before shutting the conversation down.
