Another day, another inappropriate interview by Matt Lauer comes back to haunt him. Two days after the Today Show anchor was fired following sexual harassment claims, a clip has resurfaced of the 59-year-old speaking to Sandra Bullock in 2009 — and what he had to say to her is unbelievably cringeworthy. Watch the video below to see their uncomfortable interaction:
The clip comes after a 2012 interview with Anne Hathaway also made the rounds. Matt shamed the actress for a wardrobe malfunction that was captured on camera by the paparazzi. In the pic, the Les Miserables star is seen getting out of a car without any underwear on. After commenting, “Nice to see you. Seen a lot of you lately,” he asked, “What’s the lesson learned from something like that…?”
Needless to say, his past remarks are only adding to the s–tstorm created by NBC’s decision to terminate him. “I have hated Matt Lauer ever since his disgusting interview with Anne Hathaway,” one Twitter user wrote. “He grilled her about a paparazzi’s exploitative up-skirt photo of her… F–k this dude.” Others questioned why Matt wasn’t disciplined when the incident occurred. Unfortunately, we feel like many more interviews exposing the father-of-three’s creepy behavior are bound to recirculate in the coming days.
