Matt Lauer is creepy and overpaid

You've probably heard about Anne Hathaway's "wardrobe malfunction" the other day. She slid out of limo and her dress hiked up exposing her lady bits. Which the pack of feral paparazzi who lurk around star studded events duly photographed.

So she subsequently does an interview with Matt Lauer who immediately went into "creepy guy at the hotel bar who's engaged in an endless and futile attempt to cheat on his wife" mode.
“Seen a lot of you lately,” he said after welcoming the actress to the show.

After the tasteless quip, he continued: “Let's just get it out of the way, you had a little wardrobe malfunction the other night. What's the lesson learned, other than keep smiling, which you always do.”
Being woefully uninformed on the rising stars of pop culture, (don't know anyone younger than Meryl Streep), I'm not sure who Anne Hathaway is. But this classy answer makes me want to find out and watch her movies.
“It was obviously an unfortunate incident,” she replied. “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.”

She continued: “And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which brings us back to ‘Les Mis,’ that's what my character is, she is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing and there's no social safety net.”
I don't know what kind of money she makes, but I imagine she's likely worth more than they pay her. Meanwhile, Matt Lauer makes @25 million a year. For a four day work week. Where he asks creepy questions. Clearly, he's not worth the money.

Yeah, but is so outrageous to wear underwear? Didn't her mother tell her to, in case of accident at least?

Think you're old? Last I heard Anne Hathaway was Mrs. Shakespeare!

I keep thinking of the "Beverly Hill Billies".

Going commando in tight fancy dresses has a long history. The first time I remember one of these inadvertent flashes was when I was a kid. It was either Ursula Andress or Julie Newmar. Can't recall which one.
