Carey Mulligan says actresses are increasingly turning down films for TV so they can land bigger and better female roles. The Hollywood star spoke at the launch of four-part BBC2 police drama Collateral, in which she plays the lead. She said: “For most actresses it is about going where the better writing is. “Films have tended to provide a lot for men in terms of great leading roles and not so much for women.
Lisa Armstrong has maintained her silence ever since Ant McPartlin announced that he's leaving her last Saturday. But the Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist has now returned to social media to share a picture of their beloved dog Hurley - who they're both expected to fight for custody of. Sharing a gorgeous shot of their pet taken by photographer Harry Page, she wrote: "My baby boy and his #furryfam."
Call The Midwife star Victoria Yeates has seen hundreds of babies delivered in the hit drama, but she says she would rather adopt. The actress, who returns for her fifth series on Sunday as Sister Winifred, has had a desire since childhood to take in youngsters in need of a home. And she insisted being around co-star Helen George – Nurse Trixie – and her newborn daughter has not changed her mind. Victoria, who ties the knot this year, said: “I’m not sure about babies.
Lovely to see Ant smiling again after what must have been a very tough weekend. I'm told the #BGT crowd went crazy for @antanddec in Blackpool today on the opening day of auditions. I predict more NTA awards for them next week... https://t.co/nrUL3Yvm6w
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
