This iconic actress just turned 89 – she claims to have slept with two prime ministers

Shirley MacLaine, 89, is still going strong and has no intention of slowing down.

The kind actress, who has received an Oscar, keeps giving despite her advanced age and is frequently spotted sipping Martinis when out to eat in Hollywood.

The Steel Magnolia actor has experienced it all during the course of her seven-decade career. Indeed, when compared to those of her contemporaries, her life stories are essentially unmatched.

Shirley MacLaine has been around for a very, very long time. During her prime, she produced a ton of fantastic movies.I could go on and on about The Apartment, The Trouble With Harry, Two Mules For Sister Sara, Guarding Tess, etc.

Although Shirley is still praised for her role in the timeless 1989 film Steel Magnolia, she is not at all like the irritable Ouiser Boudreaux she played in the movie.

“Not that much bothers me,” she said in 2019.

“I think attitudes are a choice. Anger is a choice, peace is a choice, sarcasm — which is what I’m good at — is a choice.”

    MacLaine claims that her life right now is “perfect”. She enjoys eating whatever she wants and sleeping whenever she wants, and she spends a lot of time on her ranch in New Mexico with her cherished rat terriers.

    Shirley began her long career on Broadway in New York City where she was born on April 24, 1934. In 1955, she won over audiences all over the world with her performance in Alfred Hitchcock’s black comedy The Trouble with Harry.

    “He was a hoot, he really was,” Shirley, then 21, said of Hitchcock.

    “I mean, thank God I wasn’t tall, thin, ethereal, beautiful and mysterious, or I probably would have hated him.

    She is without a doubt one of the legends of Hollywood history, having appeared in more than 50 films. She recently made an appearance in the television series Only Murders in the Building despite being in her late 80s and still performing with passion.

    ‘”I’ve also stayed in the business and never thought about quitting because I wanted to pay for plane tickets to travel. I didn’t socialize Hollywood style,” she explained. ‘I’d rather travel to a country I hadn’t been to. So when I think about my life, I’m not sure I wouldn’t put the travels a bit above show business,” she said.

    Even though she occasionally goes to Hollywood, MacLaine says that she feels most at ease in the outdoors. Her key to happiness is to spend as much time as possible in the wilderness that surrounds her ranch in New Mexico, which is where she has been spending the majority of her recent time.

    Even though she likes living at her home in Malibu, being close to nature provides her power and energy.

    In fact, Shirley has exhorted others to “give it up and learn to amalgamate with nature,” emphasizing the advantages of coexisting peacefully with the environment. Over the years, there has been a lot of speculation regarding Shirley’s romantic life.

    The beloved actress had a daughter in 1956 while she was nearly 30 years married to producer and entrepreneur Steve Parker. Shirley has been upfront about having other relationships while they were married, though.

      A few years ago, Sachi Parker made an astounding statement on her well-known mother. Shirley informed Sachi that Steve was not her biological father, according to Sachi’s autobiography. Instead, a Paul-named astronaut is claimed to have been her father.

      Shirley denied the claim, issuing a statement hitting back at the allegations.

      ”It’s a painful moment for me as a mother and as someone who values the truth.  I’m shocked and heartbroken that my daughter would make statements about me that are virtually all fiction. I’ve praised her lovingly and truthfully in my own autobiographies. I’m sorry to see such a dishonest, opportunistic effort from my daughter for whom I’ve only ever wanted the best,” she said.

      Sachi hasn’t wavered in her conviction that her biological father is an astronaut called Paul despite Shirley’s denial. Their relationship has reportedly been tense as a result, and they are claimed to have cut off communication.

      Shirley has been upfront about her unusual viewpoints on relationships and sexuality, as already indicated. The 89-year-old spoke with Oprah Winfrey in 2011 about her relationship with her ex-husband Steve Parker. The renowned actress made news once more in 2012 when she admitted to the Daily Mirror that she had slept with not one, but two prime ministers throughout her life.

        Shirley described a socialist politician she met in Stockholm, Sweden’s Grand Hôtel and who she referred to as “Gerry” in her autobiography Out on a Limb.

        Olof Palme, the Swedish Prime Minister at the time, was widely thought to be the subject of her remarks, but he refuted them. Additionally, Shirley claimed to have had affairs with Australian Foreign Minister Andrew Peacock and Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

        When asked about Trudeau, she said:

        “He was nice. He was very authoritatively intelligent. And I loved his kids, they were really sweet. Adorable. Very mischievous.”

        As for her claims about having had sexual relations with prime ministers, it’s important to remember that these are unverified statements made by Shirley herself. As a result, they may or may not be true.

        It’s vital to keep in mind that Shirley herself has never confirmed any of her allegations that she had sex with any prime ministers. They might therefore be true or false.

        Shirley MacLaine has enduring skill and charisma, and it’s obvious that even at the age of 89, she’s constantly eager for new artistic opportunities. The Hollywood legend hinted in a recent interview that she’s not quite through with the silver screen just yet, and her latest performance in Only Murders in the Building served as a reminder of just how much she has to offer.

        ”I love making movies. Again, I keep coming back to creativity. I loved part the part of Leonora Folger in Murders. It was such fun shooting those scenes. It was great to catch up with old friends Steve [Martin] and Marty [Short], and I’ve known the creator John Hoffman for years. I just loved being with them,” she told Advocate.

        Shirley is a fantastic actress, and I have always appreciated seeing her movies.

        Shirley MacLaine is a true jewel of Hollywood and a legendary actress; may the cosmos bestow upon her an abundance of life. We hope that her enthusiasm for performing and her love of life will continue to motivate us all for a very long time.
