Stars Got The Lowdown From Dr. Fauci


When the COVID-19 crisis first started, we all had so many questions! . But while we had to watch the daily coronavirus press conferences, one where the President actually suggested drinking or ingesting bleach (don't do it!) to get rid of the corona virus, Kim Kardashian and her A-list friends arranged a Zoom call last April to get their questions answered, and then pass the credible and scientific news from an expert to their millions of followers.

Also on that Zoom call were Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry, Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Brad Falchuck, and about 30 others. Dr. Fauci said: “It was a whole bunch of movie stars and some sports figures and they wanted to know about what they could do to stay safe, about wearing masks, and avoiding crowds. I was impressed by the questions they asked, by their level of sophistication.” The reason he said he did the hour-long call was that the celebrities had “megaphones” and “could get the word out about staying safe.” 

One of the questions that came up was about takeout food. Mila asked Fauci if he ate it. He said he felt badly about restaurants losing business, so even though he could cook at home, several nights a week he got take-out to support those places. That’s when Ashton said, “That’s it – I’m ordering pizza!

Please mask up wherever you go.
