Megan Fox stuck her tongue out at SAG-AFTRA this weekend with her Halloween costume — or so she thinks anyway … ’cause her movie-inspired costume is actually pretty old.
The actress made sure to call out her union Saturday by throwing up shots of her getup this year — Gogo Yubari from Quentin Tarantino‘s “Kill Bill: Vol. 1” … which came out way back in 2003. Naturally, alongside her was her BF Machine Gun Kelly dressed as Uma Thurman.
Megan apparently thought these costumes — which are undoubtedly awesome — were a big F-U to SAG … evidenced in the fact that she tagged @sagaftra in her Instagram post.
Of course, she was calling out their strict rules that made the rounds a couple weeks ago — which basically forbade union actors from rocking costumes from struck work … all in an effort to show solidarity amid the ongoing strike, with negotiations actually underway right now.
In MF’s mind … this was a way to protest that, we suppose — even though she kinda misses the mark here. Fact is, ‘Kill Bill’ is ancient at this point … and no one’s going around promoting it in 2023 and making Miramax money as a result (the studio that distributed it).
What SAG was getting at with their “guidance” was obviously aimed at big blockbusters that were released this year … and which stars might be inclined to mimic for spooky season.
“Barbie” is the big one that immediately comes to mind … but there are other hits this year that were on the table as potential go-to ‘stumes. Interestingly enough, however, it doesn’t appear that Hollywood, at large, bucked SAG’s guidelines … from what we can see, people weren’t really dressed as characters from movies/TV shows that might make the guild frown.
The costumes that were on display all weekend amounted to a random mishmash of pop culture references and classic ghouls/monsters — with celebs seemingly standing firm.
Now, that’s not to say SAG’s memo to their members didn’t piss some people off … it certainly did. Not only did Megan bristle — but Ryan Reynolds and Mandy Moore did too.
Funny enough, this topic actually served as the premise for a sketch on ‘SNL’ last night … with Sarah Sherman playing SAG union Prez Fran Drescher — and pooh-poohing little kids in film-esque outfits. 😅
In any case, all’s well that ends well … here’s hoping the strike is over sooner than later.
And yes, Happy Halloween!
