Dr. Fauci approves of Brad Pitt's portrayal of him

Dr. Anthony Fauci has nothing but good things to say about Brad Pitt's impression of him on this past weekend's episode ofSaturday Night Live. "I think he did great,” a smiling Fauci told a Spanish-language news outlet on Monday. “I'm a great fan of Brad Pitt and that's the reason why when people ask me who I would like to play me I mention Brad Pitt. He's one of my favorite actors. I think he did a great job." Fauci also praised the sketch--in which Pitt-as-Fauci attempts to decode some of President Trump's puzzling statements about the coronavirus--by adding, "Everything he said on SNL is what's going on. He did a pretty good job of putting everything together." Fauci--who'd previously said he'd love to see Pitt play him on the program--especially liked how Pitt took off his Fauci wig to deliver some heartfelt praise at the end. "I think he showed that he is really a classy guy when at the end he took off his hair and thanked me and all of the health care workers,” Fauci said. "So, not only is he a really great actor but he is actually a classy person.”
