"I don't get distracted by that. I have to really focus like a laserbeam on the things that I'm responsible for," Fauci told the Associated Press. "I think that's kind of interesting, it's a little bit strange that that's going on... But one thing for sure: It doesn't go to my head, because I don't pay much attention to it." Fauci previously praised Pitt's impression of him, telling Telemundo: “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."
