Hollywood actress Carey Mulligan is to front a PR campaign for dementia charity Alzheimer’s Society to raise awareness and extend its reach.
As part of Dementia Awareness Week, Mulligan, whose grandmother Margaret was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2004, hopes to “shine a light” on the condition, which affects one in three people over the age of 65.
Alzheimer’s Society wants to reduce the stigma around dementia and hopes that backing from a young A-list celebrity will help it reach new audiences and get people talking about it more openly. It has created a five point guide to help people learn more about the condition as part of its ‘Remember the Person’ campaign.
Speaking at an event to launch Dementia Awareness Week which runs from 20 to 26 May, Mulligan said: “I am committed to helping the Alzheimer’s Society in any way I can. My family and I rely on the help of organisations like Alzheimer’s Society to help us understand the disease and guide us in the care of my grandmother.
“By speaking about my grandmother’s dementia I hope to shine a light on the condition. This Dementia Awareness Week we are asking people to ‘remember the person’ by looking beyond someone’s diagnosis of dementia and engaging with them.’
Carey Mulligan’s custom-made Prada frock topped many a best dressed list for this week’s Met Ball. And now, if you’re lucky, it could work the same sartorial magic on you.
The actress and Met Ball co-chair, has put her silver and gold metal paillette dress up for sale on eBay, with a starting bid of $500.
Of course, Mulligan isn’t getting rid of the frock to make a quick buck–100% of the proceeds from the sale will benefit Oxfam, an international relief and development organization that creates lasting solutions to poverty, hunger, and injustice. In other words, you’ll be getting a show-stopping Prada dress and the satisfaction of knowing your purchase is helping to make the world a better place.
The dress went up for auction late last night and will be on the bidding block until May 19. So far there are six bids, hiking the price of the gown up to $1000–which is still, you know, not that bad for a one-of-a-kind Prada dress. And like we said: It’s for charity!
So if you’r a European size 38-40 (that’s a US 2-4), we suggest you put your bid in now. No telling, how high the stakes will get.
Variety are reporting that Carey is no longer attached to the untitled Spike Jonze/Charlie Kaufman project due to scheduling conflicts.
Rooney Mara is in final negotiations to join Spike Jonze’s upcoming project now that Carey Mulligan has fallen out due to scheduling conflicts.
Untitled project stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Samantha Morton. Jonze penned the script and is set to direct the pic about a man who falls in love with the voice of a computer. Details of Mara’s role are unclear.
Johnny Depp and Rob Marshall are working to make a new version of The Thin Man, the Dashiell Hammett novel about drunk detective socialite Nick Charles, his charming young wife Nora and the unusual family mystery in which they become embroiled.
The question is: who plays Nora? Deadline says there is a shortlist that will begin to meet with Warner Bros. next week. Names on the list include Eva Green, Amy Adams, Emma Stone, Carey Mulligan, Rachel Weisz, Kristen Wiig, Emily Blunt and Isla Fisher. That is, just about every smart actress with free time in her schedule and an interest in starring opposite one of the few semi-legit movie stars in the business. And without knowing more about what Marshall, Depp and WB are specifically looking for, it seems pointless to try to play the guessing game based on a list that long.
The original The Thin Man, released in 1934, spawned a series of comic detective films and, later, even a TV show, and that precedent is fueling fire that the material might become a hit once again.
