Don't think a powerful man having a consensual affair with a colleague is a big deal? Maybe to Matt Lauer it's not — but one of the many women he reportedly manipulated thinks differently.

Addie Zinone worked as a production assistant on NBC's Today back in 1999, where she expected to work toward her dream job of being an on-air journalist like Katie Couric.

What she got instead was a string of confusing workplace hookups with the accused daytime philanderer that went on to negatively impact her career, as well as her mental health.

Recounting the tryst to Variety, Zinone said she forged strong bonds with Couric, Ann Curry, and Al Roker during her months running the news on Today, but remembers Lauer keeping more of a professional distance — until she accepted a job in West Virginia.

One morning on June 8, the then-24-year-old received a message from Lauer on the company's instant messaging system out of the blue. She says he wrote:

Matt Lauer continues to be exposed for sexual misconduct in the workplace.

According to a two-month investigation by Variety released on Wednesday (shortly after Lauer's firing from NBC News), more than 10 women have come forward with stories about the journalist's inappropriate behavior.

One unnamed colleague recalled being left mortified when Lauer gave her a sex toy as a present with an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her. Another instance involved Lauer calling a female co-worker into his office, where he dropped his pants and exposed his penis. He allegedly reprimanded the employee when she declined to engage in a sexual act.

Additionally, the Today vet was known for making lewd comments verbally or over text messages.

All of Matt Lauer's skeletons are coming out of the closet.

As we reported, the Today show vet has been fired from NBC News after a colleague came forward with "inappropriate sexual behavior" allegations.

We've already revisited Katie Couric's claim that the journalist would "pinch her ass a lot," and now we're recalling that creepy AF interview with Anne Hathaway from 2012.

You may remember the actress fell victim to paparazzi taking upskirt photos of her while she exited a vehicle around the same time she was promoting her now Oscar-winning performance in Les Misérables.

Lauer decided to open his interview with Hathaway shortly after the incident by saying on live TV:

"Nice to see you. Seen a lot of you lately."

Gross. The 35-year-old uncomfortably tried to dodge the questioning, but Lauer insisted on asking if she'd "learned a lesson" from the experience. Well, first of all, it wasn't her fault this happened.

She responded:
