Shirley MacLaine on the record

Shirley MacLaine’s career spans six decades - on stage, in the movies and as an author detailing beliefs on everything from reincarnation to life on other planets.

This weekend she will be one of the stars receiving the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors for their contributions to American culture.

MacLaine recently sat down with CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger. In the interview she said the honor is “more of a life appreciation award," and what a life she has had.

In the interview MacLaine recounted not only her amazing acting career, but also her involvement in politics and her views on life.

She also recalled her old pals, including the infamous "Rat Pack" rogues Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin as well as President John F. Kennedy.

    We all have the Secrets Of The Universe in our heads. Most of us, though, recognize that they make no sense and ignore them for the random noise that they are. Shirley just lacks a logic filter. Charming in a daft sort of way, but not a source of wisdom.

    MacLaine has been one of my SHE-roes for years, first in the movies & later through reading many of her fascinating books. I'm convinced the woman still has "SECRETS" about this wide Universe most of us neither want to hear or talk about, but I'm loving her to the END!
