Some of the biggest names in Hollywood have joined the big actors’ strike.

The actors have joined their unions in striking against several issues including streaming services not paying when a movie or series is broadcasted for a second or even multiple times after its original screening.

The union, Sag-Aftra, represents big A-list names like Meryl Streep, Jamie Lee Curtis, George Clooney, Mark Ruffalo, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence.

Although the union is US-based and only represents actors in America, the actors are expected to stop working when a strike is called, no matter where they are in the world.

When the actors stopped working, they joined the writers’ strike that started in May.

At the Oppenheimer premiere, director Christopher Nolan announced on stage before the screening that the cast members have walked out as they joined the strike.

“I have to acknowledge the work of our incredible cast, led by Cillian Murphy. The list is enormous – Robert Downey Jr; Matt Damon; Emily Blunt; Florence Pugh, Kenneth Branagh, Rami Malek and so many more.

“You’ve seen them earlier on the red carpet. Unfortunately, they are off to write their picket signs for what we believe to be an imminent strike.”
