Bullock appeared on the “Today” show to promote her film “The Proposal,” and Lauer does not waste any time addressing the star’s nude scene.
“The major thing that’s changed since I’ve seen you last: I have seen you naked,” Lauer tells Bullock.
Bullock laughs and shoots back, “And I’m so sorry about that. Were you able to sleep afterwards?”
Lauer, all smiles, replies that the nude image of Bullock is now his computer’s screensaver.
Lauer does not stop there. He then announces to Bullock, “You’re naked for most of this movie!”

Lauer laughs and asks Bullock to return soon, but the actress replies, “No, not after this interview, no.” The crew and Lauer laugh as the interview ends.

Lauer appeared on Vieira’s show in 2016 when she recalled the time she went into his office and found a “huge bag of sex toys.” Lauer said he was given the explicit toys by a sex therapist who appeared on the show. However,…
