Everyone relax, Nicole Kidman is not The Grinch in disguise after all.

The actress has revealed the actually quite sensible reason behind her bizarre Oscars clapping a few weeks ago. Hear a sister out:

“It was really awkward and I was like, ‘Gosh, I really want to clap’,” she told LA’s KIIS FM. “I don’t want to not be clapping, which would be worse, right?

“So, therefore, I’m clapping but it was really difficult because I had this huge ring on which was not my own but was absolutely gorgeous and I was terrified of damaging it. It’s like, is there not more important things to be focused on than the ‘seal clap’?”

ICYMI, here’s the ‘seal clap’:

Kidman, who had been nominated for her role in Lion, was wearing a casual 119 carats worth of Harry Winston diamonds for the ceremony, including a 13.58-carat ring set.

She wasn’t the only A-Lister going full Hollywood glamour for the occasion. Check out our roundup of the best dressed on the red carpet if you fancy a sartorial swoon.
