"That was crazy because I wasn’t planning on doing it in the cold open, but then at 5:30 on Saturday they added it in," Fineman tells Variety. "I had like two hours before dress rehearsal. She is the greatest actress, but I also go on Twitter to find out what the world is saying beforehand. I didn’t write the jokes about the accent, but I definitely went back and tried to find clips where it slipped a little bit. And then for me it’s always like when the wig is on. The SNL wig department whooped that in like an hour." Fineman adds that she was worried about offending Kidman with the accent joke. "I worried about that," she says. "The last thing I want is Nicole Kidman to find me rude or offensive. I think when I had pitched her at the table in the past, I definitely presented her with an Australian accent. So maybe it is my fault. I take responsibility."
