Sandra Bullock, 53, who has frequently sat down with Matt Lauer, 59, for interviews over the years, is apparently as shaken by his swift departure from NBC as we are! According to our insiders, the Oscar-winner is now more determined than ever be an advocate for women in the aftermath of the disturbing charges that have been leveled against him. “Sandra feels horrible for the women Matt may have victimized,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She has known Matt for years and she is shocked about the allegations.”
The insider went on to add that she doesn’t hold any grudges against Matt but she supports the women who have come forward. “While she does not harbor any anger towards Matt on a personal level, her heart does go out to the women he may have harassed over the years. She is dedicated to being an advocate for the rights of not only the women hurt by Matt but for all women who have been taken advantage of in Hollywood and everywhere in the world.” Head here tons more images of Matt throughout the years.
As we previously reported, not longer after Matt lost his position at the Today show, and more alleged victims came forward, an old video surfaced of an interview between Sandra and him while she was promoting The Proposal in 2009. In it, he admits on air to her that a nude photo of her is his screensaver! Yikes! Thankfully, she shut down his sleaziness!
