Dr. Fauci Had the Best Reaction to Brad Pitt Impersonating Him on 'SNL'

If Dr. Fauci's happy, we're happy.

The man who has become one of the key figures during the coronavirus pandemic finally let us know what he thought about Brad Pitt's portrayal of him on last weekend's episode of SNL at Home. "I think he did great," he said during an interview with Telemundo's Un Nuevo Dia. "I mean, 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."

In case you missed it, Pitt opened the latest episode of Saturday Night Live (filmed from cast members' homes) dressed as Dr. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, in a gray wig, glasses and a suit. "First, I'd like to thank all the older women in America who have sent me supportive, inspiring, and sometimes graphic emails," Pitt as Fauci said.

After a number of jokes about testing and President Trump's own comments on the pandemic, Pitt removed his wig and glasses to offer sincere thanks to the doctor. "To the real Dr. Fauci, thank you for your calm and your clarity in this unnerving time," he said. "And thank you to the medical workers, first responders, and their families for being on the front line. And now, live…kinda…from all across America, it's Saturday night."

"I think he showed that he is really a class guy when at the end he took off his hair and thanked me and all of the health care workers. So, not only is he a really great actor but he is actually a classy person," Fauci said. When asked if the sketch perhaps got to the heart of his true feelings, Fauci laughed and said, "Everything he said on SNL is what's going on. He did a pretty good job of putting everything together."

Really, who wouldn't want Brad Pitt to play them in just about anything? But we agree with Dr. Fauci that Pitt did an excellent job.
