Anne Hathaway embarrassed about upskirt photo, slams door in Matt Lauer's face

rsz_tbd-annehathaway121312.jpgThe Juice* tried to ignore the Anne Hathaway upskirt photo plastered all over the Internet this week, but it seems no one else could. Good thing Anne has been firing at people with both barrels for even bringing it up.

While getting out of a vehicle for the Les Miserables premiere Monday in New York, fans got a view all the way to Florida when it became apparent her full-length, black Tom Ford gown was being worn commando. A photographer saw it, too, and the rest is history -- although not on The Juice*, because we have to maintain what meager standards we have.

On Tuesday, the New York Daily News revealed Anne was rightfully mortified:  "I was getting out of the car and my dress was so tight that I didn’t realize it until I saw all the photographers' flashes," the paper says she told Vanity Fair writer Ingrid Sischy at the Four Seasons. "It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them."

And that should be that, but the Today show's Matt Lauer showed he is possibly the classiest interviewer ever, starting his Wednesday chat with the actress with, "Good to see you. Seen a lot of you lately." What a smooth operator! How could anyone possibly accuse him of getting Ann Curry fired because he didn't like her?

But Anne hit that softball into the stands, narrowing her eyes and telling Matt where to go.

"Well, it was obviously an unfortunate incident," she said. "I think 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 brings us back to Les Mis, because that's what my character is."

Matt tries to extricate himself by saying what a good answer it was, but man, does she have a point. You can go find the photo online if you want, but that makes you a bad person, and you should feel bad. Meanwhile, let's get to the more important issue: What was with those boots?
