Nicole Kidman Went on ‘Ellen’ in 2017 to Prove That She Knows How to Clap

She actually knows how to clap!

Actress Nicole Kidman stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, May, 9 to dish about her latest hit show Big Little Lies — but she also took the time to clear the air about a recent viral moment that she was the center of during the 2017 Oscars.

“I don’t clap like that,” the 49-year-old told Ellen, laughing. “I do not clap like that — that is a weird lens!”

She asked Ellen to pull down the clip of her awkwardly-positioned hands and then explained that even though the camera is to blame for distorting her hands, she was also trying to clap delicately because of the jewelry she was wearing during the event.

“It’s the Cinderella thing — you borrow these expensive jewels and I’m like, ‘I must not damage these diamonds cause I have to give them back at midnight!’” Nicole revealed. “And they went back beautifully intact — not a scratch on them.”

The movie star made her return to TV on the wildly popular HBO series Big Little Lies — where she stars alongside Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley — and she gushed over how grateful she is that the show has gotten such a positive response.

“It was such an amazing thing to get that made because Reese and I produced and managed to get this TV show made and it was a huge success — but I always say, when women choose to combine their power, they can get things done," Nicole gushed.

And thanks to their girl power — and A-list acting abilities — it looks like there’s hope that HBO will pick up Season 2 of Big Little Lies! Earlier this week, Reese took to Instagram to post a cryptic message teasing that they may have already started filming!

“Spending [Sunday Funday] with these ladies…working on some new lies,” the 41-year-old wrote.
