Adam Scott takes your dog for a walk. Then you chat about storytelling with Lena Dunham, and finally you chat about the day’s gossip on Zoom with Sarah Silverman. It is possible that this scenario, reminiscent of the dreams you had after a night of overeating, could come true because the Hollywood celebrities in question are willing to do these to contribute to the film crews affected by the strikes that have been going on for a while.
You’ve probably heard that Hollywood writers and directors have been on strike for some time over issues such as wages, job security and regulation of the use of artificial intelligence. Various celebrities are currently trying to earn an income to cover the health care of the set employees through the auction held on eBay. Because the ongoing strike has caused most of the entertainment industry to be closed for more than 100 days and the crew to be unemployed. Proceeds from the auction, where celebrities offer services such as online meetings and even home visits, will go to IATSE, LIUNA and the Motion Picture and Television Fund, which provides healthcare to the Teamsters. The auction is especially important considering the health policies of the USA, because health services are extremely expensive and payments are not provided with serious support by the state.
