Nicole Kidman has a lot of love for Rami Malek, which is why she finds
their awkward viral moment at the 2019 Golden Globes all the more cringeworthy.
ET’s Lauren Zima spoke with the
Destroyer star on the red carpet ahead of the 24th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, on Sunday, and the 51-year-old actress opened up about
seemingly ignoring the Bohemian Rhapsody star onstage last weekend.
“We’re really good friends,” Kidman explained. “I just did not feel his hand on my back.”
The interaction — which came after
Bohemian Rhapsody won for Best Picture at the Golden Globes last Sunday — seemed to show Malek trying to say hello to Kidman while everyone was taking the stage, but she appeared to brush him off.
Kidman said she was “mortified” by the accidental snubbing.
“I love that man. He’s so gentle and softly spoken. He’s a darling,” Kidman gushed, adding that they were “both in a bit of a daze” at the time of the incident.
She added that they connected soon after the Globes to joke about what happened. “He sent me an email. I sent him an email… we were laughing, actually,” Kidman shared.
A week later, the pair were able to reunite on the red carpet at the Critics’ Choice Awards , ahead of the big show.
