It’s easy to see that Nicole Kidman got pretty close with her on-screen husband, Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård, during the production of their hit HBO show, “Big Little Lies.”
The duo turned heads last month during the 69th Annual Emmy Awards when Kidman planted a kiss on her co-star’s lips as he went to accept the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Award, according to earlier reports.

The actress got called out for it in a big way on a recent episode of “The Graham Norton Show,” according to Fox News.
Kidman was discussing her recent Emmy win with Norton when he surprised her with a photo of the heard-turning Emmys moment — and she was clearly thrown off. The actress said:
“You are so provocative, Graham! Why are you showing that?”
The television host teased Kidman for her “lovely moment of celebration,” prompting her to go on a flustered ramble about the memorable kiss. She said:
“I kissed my husband, too … You’ve got to understand, I did everything with Alex … I’ve got an amazing, supportive, gorgeous husband who I love more than anything in the world … I gave Alex a congratulatory kiss and he’s … like a mannequin. I mean, not a mannequin! … I’m done.”
The awkward moment left the fellow guests on the show, including Colin Farrell and Bryan Cranston, in hysterics. Kidman eventually threw up her hands in defeat after she was unable to explain herself.
Regardless of the spontaneous kiss, the actress has received nothing but loads of support from her husband of 11 years, though he has yet to publicly comment about the Emmys moment.
