Jimmy Fallon had Nicole Kidman as a guest on his talk show on Tuesday, and they took turns talking about their first meeting. As it turns out, they each had very different but equally embarrassing memories of that day.

Jimmy's version: their mutual friend Rick told him that Nicole would like to meet him and they were coming over to Jimmy's apartment in 10 minutes. Jimmy rushed to get snacks from a deli – "I don't have anyone over at my house... I have video games and Snickers!" – in time to meet Rick and Nicole at home.

Nicole's much more detailed version: "I just remember I liked you," she started off. Rick told her that Jimmy wanted to meet her, so she said, "and I'm single [at the time] and I'm like, 'Okay, yeah cool.'"

Pretty sure she lost Jimmy at "I just remember I liked you."

The pair spent the next several minutes gawking over the fact that Nicole had been interested in Jimmy, but thought he wasn't interested in her at all.

"You're there in a baseball cap and like nothing and you wouldn't talk... and then you put a video game on or something," Nicole added. "I swear! And you didn't talk at all and so after about an hour and a half I thought, he has no interest. This is so embarrassing... And then I was like 'Maybe he's gay!'"

Then Jimmy went mental. And quite red in the face.

"I can't believe I dated Nicole Kidman, this is fantastic!" he said, to which Nicole shot back "You didn't!"
