It doesn’t matter if nearly 20 years have gone by, your good friends will always call you out for embarrassing things you’ve done in the past.

When Kate Hudson appeared on “The Tonight Show” Monday to chat with her “Almost Famous” co-star and good friend Jimmy Fallon, she brought up a story he probably wished she’d forgotten.

It all goes back to a 2018 episode of "Tonight" when Fallon admitted to actress Margot Robbie that he had a crush on Hudson while they were filming the 2000 Cameron Crowe film.

As Fallon told it, he and Hudson had gone out one night and happened to bump into Chris Robinson, the lead singer of the rock band The Black Crowes. The next day, Hudson and Fallon went ice skating on what Fallon apparently thought was a date, but Hudson had other ideas.

"We ice skated, maybe three or four times around the rink and I go 'So what are you doing now?' And she's like 'Oh, I gotta go, I have a date with Chris Robinson,'" he laughed. "And I'm like, 'Oh, of course that's what you're doing,' like ... taking my skates off, crying on the inside."

Hudson later married Robinson and had a son with him, Ryder, now 16.

During their chat Monday, Hudson laughed about the 2018 clip, joking that about “100 people” sent it to her after it aired.

"I was like, Jimmy ... I had no idea! Like, there was no ... I wish people could be in my body to watch you and I's relationship and friendship because you gave me no indication,” she said.

"Jimmy, if you would have actually made a move, I would have totally gone there," she laughed. "I remember thinking to myself, 'Why has Jimmy never made a move?' And then I just realized, 'Oh, he's not into me like that.'"

The two friends reminisced about having the time of their lives on the set of “Almost Famous." Hudson starred in her breakout role as Penny Lane, and Fallon portrayed music manager Dennis Hope.

“Who knows! Our whole life trajectory could’ve turned out differently, Jimmy,” Hudson said with a laugh.

“Everything turned out perfect,” he replied.

And things did turn out well for both of them! Hudson just welcomed her first daughter, Rani, with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa. She also has another son, Bing, 8, whose father is musician Matt Bellamy.

Fallon is happily married to his wife of 12 years, Nancy Juvonen. The pair have two little girls, Winnie, 6, and Franny, 5.
