Photographers got more than they were bargaining for Monday night as Anne Hathaway exited the car at the premiere of her latest film, "Les Misérables." The actress had no underwear on and photographers captured the moment when she mistakenly bared it all.

Hathaway sat down with "Today" show host Matt Lauer this morning and answered questions about the unfortunate incident.

"It kind of made me sad on two accounts," Hathaway said during the interview. "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."

Of course, Hathaway isn't the first star to be exposed as she exited the car. Other celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and even the Duchess of Cambridge have been the victims of wrong place/wrong time wardrobe malfunction scenarios.

Hathaway 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."

Hathaway plays Fantine in the movie alongside co-stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfreid, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Helena Bonham Carter. The film opens on Christmas Day.

On a lighter note, Hathaway stopped by "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" to sing Mad Libs Christmas carols on Tuesday night's show.

Do you think Hathaway handled the questions from Lauer well? What do you think of the photographers who sold the photos? Let us know in the comments.
