It’s hard not to think of Nicole Kidman as anything but flawless. Not only does she look like a model with her tall, svelte figure, but she also has that gorgeous flowing red-blonde hair that many women could only wish for.

But alas, when it comes to Hollywood celebrities, everything they do is scrutinized under a microscope. And Nicole is certainly no stranger to being observed by the public.

In fact, fans may recall that back in February, the “Big Little Lies” star and wife of country singer Keith Urban got called out for her unusual, seal-like clapping at the 2017 Oscars. At the time, the 50-year-old mother of four looked like she barely touched her fingers together, and Twitter had a field day with it. You can review the clip in the video below.

Now, 10 months later, it seems as though some people have yet to forget about Nicole’s awkward moment at the awards ceremony.

On Dec. 31, Nicole and Keith caught up with the co-hosts of the CNN New Year’s Eve broadcast, Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper, via satellite from Nashville, and were asked to revisit Nicole’s interesting applause that ultimately went viral.

“Keith, you gave Nicole the advice at, I think, the Oscars to clap with her hands … so that she wouldn’t damage her jewelry,” Andy recalled. “Did you ever expect that would become such a meme? Everybody was talking about it.”

Upon hearing the question, it was clear that both Keith and Nicole were more than willing to leave the clapping discussion in the past.


In fact, Keith rolled his eyes and tried to dodge the question at first. But before he handed the microphone over to his bride, he said, “I mean, it’s called a logical clap when you don’t want to slam your hands together with rings, but what do you want to do?”


Then, an unimpressed Nicole delivered the perfect response to the question.

“I wish that there was more important things to be concerned about, or that people were focused on more important things than that sort of clapping. That’s what I would say,” she added.

Well said, Nicole!
