Dr. Anthony Fauci shared his thoughts on “Saturday Night Live” enlisting Brad Pitt to portray him in a recent SNL sketch.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases appeared “Un Nuevo Dia” for NBC’s Telemundo for an interview about the United States’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the end of the video, the interviewer asked Dr. Fauci how he felt about Pitt’s impersonation, which came weeks after he jokingly suggested the 56-year-old Oscar-winner portray him on the show.

“I think he did great,” Fauci said. “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.”

At the end of the skit, which Pitt most certainly nailed – in regards to his actual impression of Dr. Fauci, he removed his wig and personally thanked the Doctor as well as all health care workers who are risking their lives to help others during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“And to the real Dr. Fauci, thank you for your calm and your clarity in this unnerving time. And thank you to the medical workers, first responders and their families for being on the front line.
