Rami Malek has joked that “awkward” footage of Nicole Kidman snubbing his greeting onstage on the Golden Globes is “haunting him on the Internet”.
The previous Mr. Robotic star gained the Golden Globe for greatest actor in a drama for enjoying late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody on Sunday (06Jan19), and shortly afterwards the movie itself was awarded the Finest Movement Image – Drama prize, which was offered by the Moulin Rouge! star.
Rami got here again on stage from the wings to rejoice with the movie’s producers, which embrace Queen’s Brian Might and Roger Taylor, and was seen stepping in direction of Nicole and elevating his fingers as if to greet her, however she doesn’t see and turns away, though she later offers him a smile because the producers are giving their speeches.
The 37-year-old was proven the viral clip throughout an look on Jimmy Kimmel Dwell! on Tuesday evening and he discovered the humorous aspect of their awkward encounter.
“I had not seen that!” he mentioned. “I’ve known her for many years, despite (what) it may seem from that video, so I thought I could easily go up and say hi but in a moment like that it was… very awkward. I have a feeling this is probably haunting me on the Internet.”
Nevertheless, he famous that he “got love” from the Australian actress’ husband Keith City, who’s a “massive Queen fan”. Rami was seated at a desk with Brian and Roger and marvelled at what number of celebrities would come up and “fan out” over them throughout the night.
When requested if the rockers loved the evening, he replied, “It wasn’t necessarily their scene. I think they wanted to enjoy it, it was an exceptional night for everybody, but they’re used to being rock stars and doing rock star things and that was a very Hollywood industry night which I had a blast at. They had a great time but I think at first it took some getting used to.”
The actor obtained a BAFTA nomination for his function on Wednesday.
