Nicole Kidman Got Asked Why She Kissed Alexander Skarsgård on the Lips at the Emmys
Kidman, 50, stopped by The Graham Norton Show last week and didn’t escape without the TV host bringing up her friendly kiss on the lips with costar Alexander Skarsgård—while her husband Keith Urban stood nearby.
“You are so provocative, Graham,” Kidman said after the TV host pulled up a picture of the kiss—which occurred after Skarsgard learned he’d won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie for his work on Big Little Lies—before defending herself by saying, “I also kissed my husband, too.”
“I did kiss [Skarsgård], but you gotta understand, I did everything with Alex,” explained Kidman, who also won an Emmy that night. “I’ve got an amazing, supportive husband who I love more than anything in the world, and I gave Alex a congratulatory kiss, and he’s like a mannequin.”
“I mean, not a mannequin,” Kidman said, laughing at herself before declaring, “I’m done.”
Speaking of her husband, Norton went on to ask the Australian actress what Urban did for her 50th birthday.
“He did some fireworks and..." Kidman said, laughing as she added that they did “other stuff” too.
In June, Kidman and Urban celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary.
The duo married in Sydney, Australia, in 2006 and have two daughters: Sunday Rose, 8, and Faith Margaret, 6.
