Anne Hathaway is taking the moral high ground over her lack of underwear.
"We've seen a lot of you lately," Lauer said, prompting the actress to immediately divert her gaze in embarrassment.
"Sorry about that," she said (video below) in reference to Monday's incident. "I'd be happy to stay home, but, the film."
Lauer complimented her ability to keep smiling (seriously with the creepy uncle bit, Matt?) and pressed on for any lesson she might have learned.
"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 ... sells it," Hathaway said.
"And I'm sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants."
Extremely fair, Annie, but she couldn't resist concluding her speech by comparing her red carpet faux pas to the struggle of her "Les Miz" character Fantine, an impoverished dying French woman forced into prostitution to care for her young child.
We can totally see the similarity.
"That's what my character is," Hathaway said, "she is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing and there's no social safety net."
