Nicole Kidman Explains Shocking Emmys Kiss With Alexander Skarsgard
Shocked by Nicole Kidman's kiss with Big Little Lies co-star Alexander Skarsgard at the 2017 Emmy Awards (performed while her husband, Keith Urban, looked on)? You're not alone, and in a new interview with Graham Norton, she tries to cover her tracks.
Kidman, who won the award for Best Actress in a limited series, kissed Skarsgard as she made her way to the stage at the ceremony, and in the new interview, she claims incredulity over the peck has been way overblown.
“You are so provocative, Graham,” she said. “Why are you showing that?”
“I kissed my husband too!” she added. “I did kiss him, because you’ve got to understand, I did everything with Alex.”
To which Norton said: “We saw it!”
Kidman proceeded to try to laugh off the event, but struggled to move on. “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.”
“I mean, not a mannequin!” she said to laughs, before officially withdrawing.
