'TODAY' hosts discuss their body images, insecurities

Monday the 'TODAY' show kicked off a week-long series called 'Love Your Selfie.' During the first segment, the anchors revealed their body-image insecurities before removing their makeup.

Savannah Guthrie revealed she didn't always appreciate being tall and used to drink coffee because she heard it stunted growth. (Didn't work. She's 5'10''!)

Anchor Matt Lauer even said at one point that he had too much hair. He decided to cut it off back when he anchored with Katie Couric.

'Today' Hosts Discuss Their Body Images, Insecurities


Al Roker brought up something he was self-conscious about, too: His weight. He underwent a gastric bypass surgery in 2002, and according to The Huffington Post, he's lost more than 100 pounds.

He also said when he thinks of beauty today, he thinks of his wife. Awwws.

The hosts also shared things they love about themselves. (Now Guthrie says she likes her height.)

After the segment, all the hosts took off their makeup. Even the guys!

Other viewers were joining in on No-Makeup Monday as well.

As 'TODAY' emphasized, it's time to love your selfie, with or without makeup.

The hair is the biggest change. The "air brush" covers lots of problems!

They go straight from their bed to the show after they wake up at 5 am in the morning, and maybe earlier. Each of us, if we look at our face the moment we get up and go from our bed to the bathroom, we look worse than these ladies. After we wash our face we see a big difference, think after our regular makeup, and think how we would look, if we, get the treatment form makeup artists at NBC, or ABC, or CBS. Part of their daily routine at their work place people! AND, we want them to look beautiful when we watch them, as we ladies want to look beautiful too when we arrive at our work place after the morning rush.

Bravo - once you get used it, like letting your lungs fill with water and becoming a fish, it really seem quite normal and relaxing.

I think this was a great example for these stars to show. Makes us all realize that they are just like us. Nothing more, nothing less.

Most Hollywood types have little problem hiding in plain sight. All they need do to stay anonymous is skip putting on makeup. Pamela Anderson is still a hottie at her age until the makeup is scraped off with a floor buffer.
