Dr. Fauci Reacts to Brad Pitt Playing Him on 'SNL'

It was Dr. Anthony Fauci‘s wish for Brad Pitt to play him on Saturday Night Live and now he’s reacting to the dream coming true!

The 79-year-old physician, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, thinks that Brad did a “great job.”

“I think he did great. 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 said in an interview with Telemundo’s Un Nuevo Dia.

Fauci added, “He’s one of my favorite actors. I think he did a great job.”

“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,” he added. “Everything he said on SNL is what’s going on. He did a pretty good job of putting everything together.”
