'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.

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.
