Dennis Leary has revealed he did not like disgraced Today host Matt Lauer from the 'get go'.

Appearing on The Talk, Leary, 60, revealed that he wasn't shocked about the sexual misconduct scandal that cost Lauer his job.

Leary said he 'thought Lauer was a creepy, douchey guy from the get-go,' and even made arrangements to avoid having on camera interviews with the 59-year-old former Today show host.

He said: "You know, you get a vibe - and I just got a weird, weaselly vibe from the guy.

"I said to my publicist, 'I don't want to be interviewed by him any longer, I want to be interviewed by the girls'.

"Go back and look at the videotape: I stopped being interviewed by him on the Today show about 10 years ago because he was so creepy."

Lauer's career and reputation are in tatters after his firing by NBC with several women claim he was sexually inappropriate with them.
