Nicole Kidman is not letting Jimmy Fallon live down their romance that never was.

On Thursday’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the 49-year-old actress stopped by to promote her new movie Lion — her first appearance on the show since a painfully awkward interview in January 2015 in which she reminded Fallon that the two had once gone on a date.

“You wouldn’t talk,” she told Fallon then. “You wouldn’t say anything, and then you put a video game on or something … 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.’ ”

Fallon teased Kidman about the failed date on Thursday — but the Oscar winner didn’t appear to be laughing. “I so didn’t want to come back,” she said.

She then reminded the 42-year-old comedian that their date wasn’t the only time he blew her off. “You had a chance to ask for my number a second time and you didn’t,” she said.

“We were at David Fincher’s house — I think it was David’s house,” she explained. “And it was when Brad [Pitt] and Jen [Aniston] were still together, so it was a long time ago. And you could have asked for my number then because it was round two — second chance. And you still didn’t ask for it.”

He appeared to not remember — which only seemed to upset Kidman more. “That’s even more offensive that you don’t remember,” she said. “You’re kidding, aren’t you? Do not pretend!”

The Oscar winner gave more details of he encounter.

“Do you remember the kitchen and the buffet? They had the food laid out in the kitchen — it was a big dinner party. And my agent had said, ‘Jimmy’s gonna be there and you’ll see — he can ask for your number.’ And we were lurking in the kitchen cause everyone went out. And I’m waiting and waiting and waiting. And you’re at the buffet — and you still didn’t ask for my number.”

“You were so not interested,” Kidman added, pointing out how the audience was shocked. “It’s okay… it’s okay…”

Fallon said that the real reason the audience is shocked is because “You were out of my league.”

“They’re like, ‘He wouldn’t have a chance in hell with Nicole Kidman! Why would I even ask you?’ ”

Both Kidman and Fallon are happily married now. But to twist the knife in a little more, Kidman decided to bring out her husband — Keith Urban — for protection.

“He wanted to come and take care of me while I’m on the show,” she said, sitting on his lap.

Fallon appeared thrown, laughing uncomfortably throughout the appearance even as Urban asked how he was doing. “You have no problem ignoring my wife in the kitchen,” the 49-year-old singer teased Fallon.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights (11:35 p.m. ET) on NBC.
