Turns out there was a good reason for Nicole Kidman's awkward clapping at the 2017 Oscars. During a radio interview in Australia, the Oscar-nominated actress finally addressed the viral moment that the internet could not stop talking about.
"It was really awkward," Kidman admitted. "I was like, 'I wanna clap, I don't wanna not be clapping' — that'd be worse, right? Like, 'Why isn't Nicole clapping?' So therefore I'm clapping, but it was really difficult because I had a huge ring on that was not mine — but it was absolutely gorgeous — and I was terrified of damaging it."
The "huge ring" that she was afraid of damaging was a Harry Winston cluster pear-shaped diamond ring of 13.58 carats, set in platinum. See all the closeup photos of the stunning rock on her finger at the 2017 Oscars ahead.
