Nicole Kidman Speaks Out About ‘Seal-Clapping’ At The Oscars

Ever since the Oscars happened, Kyle and Jackie O have been dying to talk to Nicole Kidman about what the situation was with that ‘seal clap’.

It was the moment from the Academy Awards that took the internet by storm, going viral as the camera panned on Nicole slapping the bottom of her hands together.

The Big Little Lies star told Kyle and Jackie O that it was due to her expensive jewellery that meant she had to clap like that.

"It's because of the rings you idiots, like that's why she's clapping like that - she doesn't want to damage the jewels!" Kyle said.

"Yes, YES! I'm so glad you clarified that because it was really awkward! I was like gosh, I want to clap, I don't want to NOT be clapping, which would be worse, right? 'Why isn't Nicole clapping?'

So therefore I'm clapping bit it was really difficult because I had a huge ring on that was not my own, but it was absolutely gorgeous, and I was TERRIFIED of damaging it!"

"You nailed it Kyle!"

"It's like, is there not more important things to be focused on than the 'seal clap'?"
