Anne Hathaway Shocks Industry by Walking Out of Vanity Fair Photoshoot

In a surprising turn of events, actress Anne Hathaway walked out of a Vanity Fair photoshoot on Tuesday morning. Hathaway left the shoot in the middle, still in makeup and dressed, and her departure coincided with the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) joining a one-day picket line organized by the Condé Nast Union.

While the exact reason for Hathaway’s departure is unknown, it adds a new aspect to the current disagreement between the media company and its workers. According to a source speaking to Variety, the reason the actress left the shoot midway was upon receiving news that members of her union, SAG-AFTRA, had participated in a one-day walkout in solidarity with unionized Condé Nast staffers.

“They hadn’t even started taking photos yet,” a source told the publication. They added, “Once Anne was made aware of what was going on, she just got up from hair and makeup and left.” The Academy Award winner arrived for the shoot on Tuesday morning in New York. However, when members of the actors’ union joined the work stoppage at the publisher’s One World Trade Center HQ, SAG contacted Hathaway again, and she withdrew from the shoot. The official confirmation from the star’s side is still pending.

In response to Hathaway’s action, the official handle of the union took to social media and wrote, “If Runway had a union The Devil Wears Prada would’ve been 30 seconds long,” they added, “Thank you, Anne Hathaway, for not crossing our picket line.”

Historically, Condé Nast recently announced that they would let go of some workers as part of a plan to reduce costs. This led to a lot of workers protesting on Tuesday morning, with almost 400 of them forming a picket line. Some of these workers were from Vanity Fair, the same magazine Anne Hathaway was there to be in. The company, which owns fashion titans like Vogue and GQ, is facing staff cuts, with CEO Rodger Lynch citing the need for “cost reductions.”

The actress’s departure highlights the ongoing tension between media companies and their workers, adding to the broader conversation about fair labor practices and workers’ rights. Stay tuned for the latest updates on this developing story.
