Actress Anne Hathaway rebuffed Today Show host Matt Lauer on Wednesday when he opened their interview witha question alluding her failure to wear underwear to the premiere of Les Miserables.
“Nice to see you. Seen a lot of you lately,” Lauer said at the outset of the interview, alluding to an incident Monday night where photographs surfaced of Hathaway exiting a car without wearing underwear.
“Let’s just get it out of the way,” he said. “Wardrobe malfunction the other night. What’s the lesson learned from something like that, other than you keep smiling, like you always do?”
After taking a breath and calling it unfortunate, Hathaway lectured Lauer: “It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which takes us back to Les Mis, because that’s what my character is.”
