It hasn't exactly been an easy year to be Matt Lauer!
There haven't really been many positive headlines about the Today show anchor over the past few months, but in an interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show he says he doesn't let all of the bad publicity get to him!
"I am not a guy who complains. I'm the luckiest guy in the world. I love this job, I really do."
We're not so sure about the "luckiest guy" part, but we gotta give him major props for having such a great attitude about the whole thing!
Ch-ch-check out the rest of the interview (above)!
Matt also discusses the support he got from Kathie Lee Gifford and some of his other Today colleagues, but Jay totally tip-toes around the issue we REALLY want to hear about involving a certain someone he used to work with!
We'll give you a hint: Her name starts with an A and ends with nn Curry!
