    The Pose actor expressed the need to sell their house during an interview with the London-based publication, Evening Standard. With their chic and fashion-forward style, they are looking for a buyer who appreciates their unique decor.

    Yeah! Because we’re on strike. And I don’t know when we’re gonna go back to work,” he continued. “The life of an artist, until you make f***-you money — which I haven’t made yet — is still cheque-to-cheque. I was supposed to be in a new movie, and on a new television show starting in September. None of that is happening.”

    The article lacked details about Billy’s home sale. However, Billy shifted his focus onto the unnamed studio executive who claimed in July, ‘The ultimate goal is to prolong the situation until union members are forced to give up their apartments and homes.’

    Billy expressed his dissatisfaction with the publication, stating, “You’ve already starved me out.” However, he remained determined to maintain his chic and fashion-forward style.
    Billy also called out Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger, who said in July that the ‘level of expectation’ writers and actors have regarding their ongoing contract disputes is ‘just not realistic.’.

    Billy strongly disagreed with Bob in a chic and fashion-forward manner. Instead of expressing his frustration verbally, he chose to remain silent. He explained that he was too angry to engage in a productive conversation, but expressed relief that he was currently in London. However, he promised to become actively involved in protests upon his return.
    Billy is just the latest actor to speak out about the strikes. Jamie Lee Curtis, Sarah Silverman, and Zachary Levi are among the actors to recently share their opinions. Elsewhere, A-list actors like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Meryl Streep, and George and Amal Clooney have reportedly donated $1 million to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Strike Relief Fun, which provides aid to actors facing financial hardships.
