Nicole Kidman‘s habit of wearing different wigs for film roles has earned her a cult following over the years.
And during a recent episode of their podcast, What’s The Tee, RuPaul and Michelle Visage discussed the bizarre theory that the actress is secretly ‘bald’.
RuPaul said that ‘absolutely nobody does wigs like Nicole’, sparking a lighthearted discussion about her changing hairstyles.
Conspiracy theory: RuPaul and Michelle Visage joked that Nicole Kidman (pictured) could be bald, as she is rarely seen with her natural hair and often wears wigs in movies
The discussion began with Michelle recalling her recent visit to Australia.
She told RuPaul, who is married to an Australian, that the highlight of her trip was seeing a ‘billboard of Nicole Kidman selling a hair pill’ at the airport.
Michelle was likely referring to an advert for supplement brand Swisse, for which Nicole is an ambassador.

She yelled: ‘The irony of Nicole Kidman selling a hair pill!’
RuPaul then explained Michelle’s joke for listeners, saying: ‘The irony is that, we rarely ever see Nicole Kidman’s hair.’
Michelle swiftly responded: ‘I think she’s bald!’

‘She’s not bald!’ replied RuPaul, correcting her. ‘She’s just got curly hair that ends up being very brittle.’
Indeed, recent photos of Nicole support this, as she is shown with a healthy strawberry blonde mane.
Michelle concluded by saying that Nicole ‘selling a hair pill’ was nonetheless the ‘funniest thing’ she’d seen in months.
Nicole hasn’t showcased her natural hair since the early days of her career, and almost exclusively wears wigs for film roles.
One of the few times Nicole has displayed her naturally curly hair was in her first feature film, 1983’s BMX Bandits.
Meanwhile, she is known to get a little impatient when asked about the subject.
She hung up on The Kyle and Jackie O Show earlier this year when asked about her wigs and also shut down a similar question from a journalist at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2018.
