I tamed Warren Beatty | Express Yourself | Comment | hair-restore.info
On Oscar Sunday, as Warren Beatty became one of the subjects of the Academy Awards's most historic flubs, his older sister, Shirley MacLaine. Shirley MacLaine slept with three men in one day, she revealed this week. After revealing that her year marriage to producer Steve Parker had been It's the least you'd expect from Warren Beatty's sister, but where modern Lana Turner was married seven times and once said "my goal was to have. I was suddenly the sister or friend who had married Warren Beatty. “But I did not start a relationship with him on the basis it was going to end quickly. His actress sister Shirley MacLaine was even more direct: “If it moves.
I believe I have a balance there. I was mostly left-brain orientated, and in the past 30 years it changed. I think I'm quite conventional. I'm a peaceful person once work ethic is established. If people are around me and whatever I'm doing is efficient, then I'm extremely peaceful. When someone doesn't care about their job or it's all screwed up - no, I am not peaceful, because I'm addicted to making people better than they think they are. Is that because you thought you might not live up to your potential?
A couple of friends told me I wasn't and told me to get my act together, and it made a huge impact on me. She had done the original Ocean's She was a rat-pack mascot, friends with all of them though girlfriend to none. She had started on Broadway as a hoofer. She was known to be the girl with great legs but a funny face. If you look back at those films now, she was striking: It's odd that she says she didn't have her act together when she was doing so well.
To get my act together, I realised I had to look more within myself - and I did. How am I supposed to remember what pictures I was doing then? I can't remember much of anything, quite frankly, which I'm very happy about in many ways because it means I can live totally in the now. She doesn't remember much about Terms of Endearment, for which she won an Oscar in I have to be more in the now in order to know what I'm doing. What's the most interesting thing that's changed about her?
She pauses to consider the accuracy of her answer. Not to be successful, but to be creative - and also I was very involved in relationships, particularly men. I had all of these fabulous relationships. I learnt a great deal through them, and now I want more of a relationship with nature and with ruminating and remembering and dreaming, and so forth.
I don't like to socialise much. It's a big deal for me to come into town because I live on a ranch in New Mexico. She doesn't like the toxicity of the traffic in Beverly Hills. There's some really creative people living and working here I adore. Particularly if they're eccentric. I used to be disturbed by eccentrics; now I welcome them. The guys would call me up and say we want two or three Shirleys tonight and I would help them.
What I found really humiliating were jokes about me that people didn't laugh at. Robin Williams once did a whole Oscar show ripping off my channelling. Oh, he was hysterical.

What does she mean exactly when she says she used to be really involved in relationships, pursuing men? She had many affairs and an odd year marriage to film producer-turned-businessman Steve Parker - they weren't really together for a lot of it.
There was an intense three-year affair with Robert Mitchum. There was Danny Kaye and Yves Montand, and she always had a fascination for politicians, including Andrew Peacock, who at the time was Australia's foreign minister.
Her search for the definition of love was quite thorough. Did she never enjoy monogamy? Although I am a serial monogamist. There are three sets of people where sex is concerned. The promiscuous, which I was not; the total monogamist, which I was not; and the serial monogamist, who has very deep but intense relationships while you are in them. I guess I learned what I needed to learn from them and then I usually fixed it so they would move on, not me.

I didn't like the guilt of moving away from them. I'm a middle-class girl from Virginia. I don't handle guilt well. But I'm over the hill now,' she says, not particularly sadly. Is it true she never had her heart broken? She whispers, 'Yes, that's true. My heart would be broken, shattered, if something happened to my dog though. I take her everywhere, and you know, we've had a talk. She's going to live till about and then she'll come back again and it'll be up to me to find her.

She says they are both very independent spirits, loyal but individual. She credits Terry as co-writer of her book Out on a Leash: Exploring the Nature of Reality and Love. And Terry is 'almost androgynous, that's why she has an androgynous name'. She could talk about her dog all day. She swallowed a diamond ring once.
It hasn't come out yet. She's commandeered for her a special coat which says she is a therapy dog, which allows her in forbidden places like aeroplanes. He might come back as a person. People come back as people, dogs come back as dogs. Was it a lap dog, your dog? Did he do lapping? I tell her the story of my poodle and how he died, how I told him he didn't have to hang on for me and we would always know each other, how he arched his neck up, took his last breath and died in my arms.
She wipes her tears away. Any slivers of brusqueness are gone. It's still a conundrum, though, why she should write books about love and say she doesn't know heartbreak. But maybe she has forgotten it. It's set during the Second World War, with MacLaine's character the love interest of three men, until one of them dies when his bomber crashes into Belfast's Cave Hill. The mechanics of the triangle are told both in the present and in the past, and MacLaine gives us a woman who is distanced by life, hardened until a breakthrough moment when she allows herself to feel.
I doubt it was hard for her to access that dislocation. She says the pain of the separation from her dog helped her to support Attenborough, who was grieving for the daughter and granddaughter he lost in the Asian tsunami of Through her dog she can access hurt. She tried to teach me then; I didn't learn very well. She's come back and I'm learning better.
They met in when they played husband and wife in The Bliss of Mrs Blossom. It meant such a lot to him. It's really his story. Perhaps it was his release. Many of the key players in MacLaine's world have been around in previous lives. I did learn from my parents, though - that was fairly complete. I ended up at a Spanish military installation. Man, I didn't know where I was. My parents came back to guide me to the trail. The first time they had been together since they were both alive.
I was in real danger. Her father had several out-of-body experiences and saw his best friend appear at the edge of his bed at the moment he died in the Second World War. Her mother 'was extremely contained. She was, after all, Canadian. And as a result of being contained they can erupt. People who met my parents said they reminded them of eccentric vaudevillians.
Over the years she has had times when she didn't talk to her brother, Warren Beatty. We are fine now. I think we've been through a couple of lifetimes together. He's going through his left-brain intellectual lifetime now. He's on a very different path to me. But his kids are very interested in what I'm saying. It's also been written that they differed over his taste in girlfriends, particularly Madonna.
I like to remind him as often as possible that I am the senior here, so you'd better listen to me. She seems naughty, teenage. I have a kid's nature. I am very interested in doing this movie with Olympia Dukakis, playing these two old women who feel marginalised by their invisibility. Although I like to be invisible. Because I've been noticed so much in my life, I really go the other way. This paparazzi stuff would drive me nuts.
I would have driven over 20 paparazzi by now. I don't eat a lot of it, but I have to have it every day. We share a giant Twix and then a Snickers. Does she worry about ageing? Is she worried about a loss of beauty, about dying?
