There are a handful of actors out there who didn't let the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike stop them from wearing the pop culture-inspired Halloween costumes they wanted to wear this year...
In case you missed it, the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) strongly advised its union members and supporters not to dress up as TV and movie characters for Halloween, a move intended to deprive the major studios and streaming services they are striking against of any free promotional publicity.
But in a viral display of defiance, popular out actress Megan Fox seemingly taunted SAG by tagging the guild in photos of herself and fiancé Machine Gun Kelly, dressed in costumes inspired by the popular 2003 Quentin Tarantino Kill Bill: Vol. 1.

Fox, of course, was far from the only person who shied away from those suggested rules. In fact, a handful of other well-known actors donned costumes of characters from struck studios over the past Halloweekend...
