Shirley MacLaine talks about Oscars, Robert Osborne and her new film


Yeah, he watched me and he watched my life and he watched Jack and me together. I was involved with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, learning how to play gin rummy with the mob. That why he put those [card] scenes in.

Please don’t ask me. I don’t want to answer. I don’t want to even think about it.

Well, let’s see how it does because what I want to do now is devote my life to concentrating on roles for older women that can help this culture become more equal not only in gender but in age. That demographic of our society so often is forgotten on screen unless it’s somebody with a really sad problem or somebody with very comical Alzheimer’s. I hope it does well because that would influence the financing of the other scripts I’ve got.

Oh my God. So many memories flood through my mind. I knew him for years. He was one of the first people who interviewed me. He loved all of us guys, you know. He just loved all the actors. What went with him was a golden history we are all a part of.
