Anne Hathaway made a surprising and impactful move by walking out of Vanity Fair Magazine photoshoot in New York.

She aligned herself with striking workers from Conde Nast, the magazine's publisher.

The Love & Other Drugs actress was reportedly unaware of the work stoppage upon her arrival, chose to stand in solidarity with around 400 unionized employees protesting the publisher's handling of layoffs.

The 24-hour protest encompassed workers from various Conde Nast publications, including Vanity Fair, Vogue, and GQ, expressing their discontent with negotiation tactics and unfair layoff talks.

The Intern actress, with hair and makeup already done, left the shoot upon learning about the ongoing strike, bringing considerable attention to the grievances of Conde Nast employees.

The source shared with Variety Magazine, "They hadn’t even started taking photos yet, Once Anne was made aware of what was going on, she just got up from hair and makeup and left."

Sources revealed that the protest coincided with the announcement of the 2024 Oscar nominations, and the striking workers gathered in front of Conde Nast's New York offices to rally for fair treatment.

Videos circulated on social media depicted protesters holding signs with messages like "Layoffs are out of fashion" and chanting slogans expressing their dissatisfaction.

The recent merger of Pitchfork and GQ by Conde Nast, resulting in layoffs at Pitchfork, has intensified the dissatisfaction among workers.
