Denis Leary Thought Matt Lauer Was 'Creepy' from the Get-Go

Denis Leary has never been a fan of disgraced Today Show host Matt Lauer and he’s letting it be known!

The Rescue Me actor made an appearance on The Talk on Thursday (December 7) and opened up about his thoughts on Matt, who was fired for sexual misconduct.

“I thought he was a creepy, douchey guy from the get-go,” Denis said. “I stopped being interviewed by him on the Today show about 10 years ago because he was so creepy… I just got a weird, weaselly vibe from the guy, and I said to my publicist, I said, ‘I don’t want to be interviewed by him any longer.’”

“I do think people deserve second chances, but when you have a button under your desk to lock women into your office, you know what, screw you,” he added.

Billy Bush Speaks Out About NBC Firing Matt Lauer

Billy Bush is speaking out after NBC fired his former Today show co-host Matt Lauer.

The men worked together on the morning program until Billy was fired for his presence during Donald Trump‘s infamous Access Hollywood scandal.

Recently the network also fired Matt following sexual harassment allegations.

“How do you feel about NBC firing you especially in light of Matt Lauer being fired for allegations of actual sexual impropriety?” Billy was asked during a Late Show appearance.

“Look it was a difficult time, it was very hot emotionally in the country. A lot of people were not comfortable with the man who was close to winning the election, and a lot of things happened quickly,” Billy responded.

Billy added that at the time Matt “took the line” with their boss to prevent Billy from being fired but his boss later admitted they “may have moved a little quickly” in firing him.

Matt Lauer's Ex-Wife Speaks Out in His Defense After 'Today Show' Firing

Matt Lauer‘s ex-wife Nancy Alspaugh is speaking out to defend him after he was fired from The Today Show amid sexual misconduct allegations.

Nancy was married to Matt from 1981 to 1988 and she is surprised by the news.

“I was shocked because he’s been such a stalwart at that network and in that job,” Alspaugh told Entertainment Tonight. “He’s been the best person that’s ever held that job and I couldn’t imagine that anything that he would have done — that would have been so out of character for him — that would have caused that reaction.”

“I never saw him as a power monger or somebody who would abuse his position in any way,” Nancy added, saying that Matt is an “incredibly nice, incredibly charming person.”

Nancy questions if some of the accusations facing Matt are true or not.

“He’s just a very giving person and charming and I think a lot of this stuff is obviously going to come to light, whether it’s true or not, and some of the things that are being stated may not be true,” she said. “We have to find that out, you know? As time goes on here, people should be aware there’s a family involved here. There are three children and that’s — I think it’s important to be aware that this can destroy a family. Reporting on accusations before they know whether they’re real or not.”

Matt spoke out on Thursday morning to apologize for his behavior and also say that some of the claims are untrue.

Matt Lauer Issues Apology for Sexual Misconduct, Says Some Claims Are 'Untrue'

Matt Lauer was fired by NBC and the Today show after allegations of sexual misconduct, and now, he’s speaking out.

“There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC. Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed,” the 59-year-old former TV personality said in a statement, read on air by his former co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.

“I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly. Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I’m committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full time job. The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my own troubling flaws. It’s been humbling. I am blessed to be surrounded by people I love. I thank them for their patience and grace,” Lauer‘s statement concluded.
