'SNL' has always been pretty spot-on with its celebrity impressions, most notably in recent years with Alec Baldwin channeling Donald Trump with grim effectiveness every so often.

Last weekend saw Brad Pitt take on the role of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the US's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to try and rebut Donald Trump's batshit comments about injecting bleach. Yes, you didn't dream that. It really did happen.

So, sure enough, Dr. Fauci was asked in a recent interview with Telemundo about the sketch and, whaddya know, he liked being played by one of the finest actors of a generation. Did you see 'Ad Astra', like? Incredible.

"Everything he said on 'SNL' is what's going on. He did a pretty good job of putting everything together," Fauci beamed. However, Fauci's favourite bit of the sketch came when Pitt dropped the impression to be sincere and thank the healthcare workers in the middle of all of this.

"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, so not only is he a really great actor, but he is actually a classy person."

The man was in 'Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood' and 'Interview With The Vampire'. Of course he's a classy person, Dr. Fauci. The man has range.

Here's the original sketch.
