Shirley MacLaine was born in Richmond, Virginia. She is the older sister of Warren Beatty.

For the film Some Came Running (1958), MacLaine was nominated for a Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance as a tag-along girlfriend of a recent WWII veteran, played by Frank Sinatra.

In 1960, Shirley MacLaine played the troubled lover of a married man in Billy Wilder's The Apartment, with Jack Lemmon as a sympathetic and not-so-innocent bystander. The movie won Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay Oscars. MacLaine was nominated for her poignant portrayal.

MacLaine also starred in Billy Wilder's 1963 comedy, Irma La Douce, the story of a Parisian woman of the night and a soon-to-be ex-cop, played by Jack Lemmon. She was again nominated for an Oscar for her outstanding performance.

MacLaine co-starred with Clint Eastwood in Two Mules For Sister Sara (1970), a story set in Mexico during the Juarista rebellion, in which a prostitute masquerading in the Old West as a nun.

In 1977, MacLaine played the ballet teacher stage mom of a ballerina who experiences regrets at leaving her dancing career to raise a family in The Turning Point. She was again nominated for an Oscar.

The following year, in the movie Being There, Shirley MacLaine played in the fairy tale comedy of Chance, a child-man whose simple-minded aphorisms are mistaken for wisdom by everyone around him.

Finally MacLaine won her Oscar for her portrayal of Aurora, the loving but difficult mother of an equally loving but difficult daughter, in Terms Of Endearment in 1983. The film swept the Oscars for Best Film, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actress and Best Actor (won by Jack Nicholson as a former astronaut and the mother's main squeeze).

MacLaine turned in more memorable performances in Steel Magnolias (1989), Postcards From The Edge (1990) and Guarding Tess (1984).

In addition, she produced, wrote and directed a documentary on life in China. She has produced three Emmy-winning television specials, directed another movie and written two more, including her autobiographical project, Out On A Limb (1987).
