Nicole Kidman is now happily married to Keith Urban, but at one point, she was set on dating Jimmy Fallon - and he ended up totally missing his chance.

In 2015, the Big Little Eyes star appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she revealed her previous intentions, much to the surprise of Fallon.

You can watch the moment here:

At the start of the interview, Fallon revealed to his audience that he'd met Kidman years before.

According to the comedian, he was walking through the streets of New York when he received a call from his friend.

"He says 'I have Nicole Kidman with me and she wants to meet you to maybe be in Bewitched or something'." he recalled.

Once his friend said that he was going to bring her round to his apartment, he flew into a panic.

Fallon recalled: "I don't have dinner parties, I don't have people over to my house, I have video games and sneakers."

And it was at this point in the story that Kidman dropped a bombshell as she admitted that she'd pushed for the meeting because she 'liked' Fallon.

At first, the host isn't sure how to react as Kidman clarifies to the audience: "Not anymore. I'm married now."

She continued: "Rick, our mutual friend, was like 'Jimmy wants to meet you. You can go over to his apartment.'

"And I'm single and I'm like 'Okay'."

At this point in the interview, it's slowly dawning on Fallon that he'd had a famous admirer without even realising.

As the audience bursts into laughter, he shouts: "Did I date Nicole Kidman?!"

And from the sounds of how the rest of the 'date' went, it was a dud.

Kidman recalled heading over to Fallon's digs but it certainly wasn't love at first sight.

She said: "You wouldn't talk! You wouldn't say anything.

"And then you put a video game on or something, and I'm like 'This is so bad!'"

As it dawns on him that he missed the chance to date the Hollywood starlet, Fallon throws himself to the ground.

She added that after a hour and a half, she concluded that there was no interest from Fallon and left.

"I left and said 'No chemistry'. I thought 'Maybe he's gay'."

At this point, the flustered TV host gets up from his desk and pretends to walk off set as his studio audience erupt into hysterics.

Fallon later talked about the revelation on The Howard Stern Show in 2017.

He said that he believed that Kidman was coming round to discuss the possibility of him playing the part of Jack Wyatt/Darrin Stephens in 2005's Bewitched.

"I'm trying to be professional right? I wanted to be someone you want to work in a movie with for three months." he said. "Plus I don't think I would have had a chance."

Doing his worst impression of her Australian accent, he said that she'd asked 'what were all these wires', which he explained was for a console to play a Mario game.

"I don't even know what I was doing. I taught her how to play the video game." he said.

Well, at least he can say Nicole Kidman had a crush on him.

How many of us can say that?
