Richard Dreyfuss is doing okay, everyone!
The actor took to Twitter late Sunday night after fans tweeted their condolences at him. The social media platform went into a frenzy after Julia Louis-Dreyfus dedicated her fifth Emmy win to her late father, William Louis-Dreyfus, who died on Friday.
“Lastly, I’d like to dedicate this to my father William Louis-Dreyfus, who passed away on Friday,” she said through tears. “I’m so glad that he liked ‘Veep’ because his opinion was the one that really mattered. Thank you.”
After the speech, Dreyfuss addressed some confused fans over Twitter.
“I’m actually not Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ father. But I really appreciate all the concerned tweets,” he wrote.
Dreyfuss also engaged with Twitter users about his career and the fact that he has never been formally recognized by the Emmys.
“You know who else hasn’t won an Emmy? Me. This has nothing to do with Hitler. Get your mind out of the gutter,” he wrote to one user.
He later followed up with, “One of my favorite things to do is just pet my Academy Award. People think it’s weird. People have never petted their own Academy Award.”
Dreyfuss won his Oscar in 1977 for his performance in “The Goodbye Girl.” Most recently, he was nominated for a SAG for his work in “The Education of Max Brickford.”
