Couric is back on Today after a little 10-year hiatus to co-host the show with Matt Lauer this week (and you thought getting back into the swing of things after the weekend was hard.) Of course, that means impossibly early mornings to prepare for the broadcast, prompting Couric to upload this deeply relatable, makeup-free selfie.
SAME, KATIE. SAME.
Messy hair, oversized pajamas and not a stitch of makeup— she certainly woke up like this. Of course, many news anchors and TV personalities don't want to show themselves looking this disheveled, but Couric is not afraid to show us that she is indeed human, which is pretty refreshing.
Plus, her look this morning is not even as bad as her look back in '97. Couric seemed grow a significant amount of hair while Lauer lost his.
Couric being brave enough to post her makeup-free selfie is just another reason to love the television reporter, who will appear on Today until Friday to celebrate Lauer's 20th year with the program.
