- Rami Malek appeared on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday and talked about his viral moment with Nicole Kidman during the 76th Golden Globes.
- While onstage accepting the award for best drama motion picture for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the actor had a brief interaction with Kidman, who was presenting and didn’t seem to realise that Malek was trying to get her attention.
- “I’ve known her for many years, despite as it may seem from that video,” Malek told Kimmel. “I thought I could easily go up and say hi, but in a moment like that, it was very awkward. I have a feeling this is probably haunting me on the internet.”
During the award show on Sunday night, Malek and the cast and crew of “Bohemian Rhapsody” went onstage to accept the Golden Globe for best drama motion picture. Malek portrayed Queen front man Freddie Mercury in the biopic.
While navigating through the people on stage, Malek had a brief interaction with Kidman, who presented the award. Fans couldn’t get enough of the quick exchange, in which Kidman seemed oblivious to the 37-year-old trying to get her attention.
“I had not seen that,” Malek said, briefly covering his face, during an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday. “I’ve known her for many years, despite as it may seem from that video.”
The actor explained what he had been trying to do.
“I thought I could easily go up and say hi, but in a moment like that, it was very awkward,” the “Mr. Robot” star said. “I have a feeling this is probably haunting me on the internet.”
And even though Malek didn’t get to properly speak to the “Aquaman” star, he said that he got love from Kidman’s husband,Keith Urban, who’s a “massive Queen fan.”
