Oscar®-winning actress Shirley MacLaine is a true original. After getting her start singing and dancing on Broadway, Shirley went on to a silver-screen career working with some of Hollywood's greatest legends: Alfred Hitchcock, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Jack Lemmon and Jack Nicholson, to name a few.

She's played a retired ballerina (The Turning Point), a brash good-time girl (Some Came Running), a lovelorn mistress (The Apartment), an overbearing mother (Terms of Endearment) and a grouchy, sharp-tongued widow (Steel Magnolias). Shirley's diverse acting career has spanned more than five decades and earned her a place among Tinseltown's finest performers.

Shirley is here to talk about her fascinating life, past lives, former loves, honest confessions and everything in between.
