Los Angeles is burning. The hills are alive with the roar of wildfires, the worst in the city’s history. But at the Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard all that apocalyptic carry-on seems strangely remote. It’s business as usual here, like a scene from Titanic. Attractive staff deliver drinks, a fat man in a bath towel barks into his mobile phone. And at the corner table, tucked among the ferns, a movie star is giving an interview: Joaquin Phoenix. It’s perfect, just as I’d pictured it.
Mr Brown called himself the hardest-working man in show business, and these days, Mr Boseman can relate. “Any time money or fame comes, you should grab it,” he laughs. And that’s what he’s doing. When asked what he does in his downtime, he laughs. “What downtime?” Work is keeping him in Atlanta for much of the year, away from his LA home in Los Feliz, not far from Echo Park. He has written scripts that are in development at various studios as we speak.
Jessica Chastain accepts she might be blacklisted for her stance on equal pay but feels it’s a risk worth taking. The actress says she is taking a stand against the gender pay gap in Hollywood, adding: “I’m not going to get paid a third less than my male co-star who has equal experience.
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".
