Of all people to be talking about today, you wouldn't think it would be Nicole Kidman seeing as she walked away Oscar-less from last night's Academy Awards and there are much more pressing things to talk about but lo and behold, Nicole Kidman is what the internet is talking about.
Why? Because of this.

The internet, understandably, has some questions.

Honestly? We just think she's either fallen victim to breaking one fake nail too many or is on strict instructions from however loaned her those very expensive rings to not let them damaged in any way and has adopted this bizarre palm slap as a preventative measure. That or she's just weird. Who knows.
