25In her book, "My Lucky Stars", MacLaine wrote that before production on My Geisha (1962) began, Yves Montand bet her husband, Steve Parker, that he could seduce her. Parker, whom MacLaine learned later, was having an affair at the time, took Montand up on the bet; Montand won.

28About 1975, while starring in a special musical show that played at Chrysler Hall in Norfolk, VA, she walked out on the show because of the poor acoustics and sound system. Chrysler Hall was well known for this problem at the time, and Miss MacLaine was not the only performer to complain about it. Years later, the theatre closed for a while and underwent extensive renovations to improve the acoustics, thanks in part to the star's vigorously vocal objections.

37Member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1967.
38Was close friends with the members of the Rat Pack. She starred with all of them in Ocean's 11 (1960). Other works with Rat Pack members include: Some Came Running (1958), Cannonball Run II (1984) and Can-Can (1960).
39Right before a performance of "Cinderella" with the Washington School of Ballet (she was dancing the role of the Fairy Godmother), she was warming up backstage when she broke her ankle. Instead of bowing out, she simply tied the ribbon on her toe shoes tighter and danced the role through. After the show was over, she called for an ambulance.
40As of 2009, she is only one of six performers who won a Golden Globe Award as Best Lead Actor/Actress in a Motion Picture Drama without being nominated for an Oscar for that same role (hers for Madame Sousatzka (1988)). The others are Spencer Tracy in The Actress (1953), Anthony Franciosa in Career (1959), Omar Sharif in Doctor Zhivago (1965), Jim Carrey in The Truman Show (1998) and Kate Winslet in Revolutionary Road (2008).

#Quote
1Once the soul of India gets into you, it sits on your shoulder all the time.
2[on Peter Sellers] Peter had a leaking aura and these past-life incarnations would come through and that's why he could play these parts so well. He was positive he was having a sexual, a deep, erotic relationship with me, he actually thought he was! Dick Zanuck would walk into his dressing room and hear Peter doing sex talk over the phone and he would ask me, 'What is it like having a relationship with Peter Sellers?' and I said, 'He's out of his mind.' He did the same thing with Sophia Loren when they made 'The Millionairess.'
3I do miss the stage. There's nothing like it, nothing. When I did my one-woman show and played the Palace and played the Gershwin and all that, I did - what? - eight shows or maybe more a week. Of course you can't do anything else, and you can't run quickly for a cab in the rain, and you can't have a drunken love affair. You can't do any of that. Because you've got to be perfectly healthy. And I guess I value enjoying my life a little bit more than the discipline these days.
4[on planning a scene in Downton Abbey (2010) which involved a conversation with Maggie Smith] I told her I was going to sing it, and first she said to me, 'You know, dear, when you do that, I'm going to fall off my chair'. I said, OK. And then she said, 'No, I think not. I think I'll fall asleep'. I said, OK, that's good too. And then she said, 'No, I think I will cry'. I said, I don't know what you'd do that for, but whatever. What she did instead was flirt back. I was so surprised.
5I don't know what the norm is. The latest evaluations on human sexuality say that we are one-third monogamous, one-third serially monogamous and one-third polygamous. I would say there should be some kind of form to fill out before you promise monogamy.
6I'm very interested in how insane everybody is. That's why I write.
7On mothering: If we can genuinely honor our mother and father we are not only at peace with ourselves but we can give them birth to our future.
8[on Mia Farrow] All turned in and vulnerable, a child with a highly energetic brain. From the neck up she's eighty.
9[on Warren Beatty] The difference between us is sex. I can take it or leave it. But my kid brother ... well, now, he enjoys his reputation. Sex is the most important thing in his life. It's his hobby, you could say.
10On personal power: You are the architect of your personal experience.
11[after being offended by David Letterman on his show] Cher was right! You are an asshole!
12My first few weeks in New York were an initiation into the kingdom of guts.
13I've made so many movies playing a hooker that they don't pay me in the regular way anymore. They leave it on the dresser.
14...I was always a character actress and never a sex symbol. Even when I was the leading lady, I was a character actor.
15I'm not unaware of how I'm perceived, I just don't care about it. Unless I really hurt someone's feelings. I care about that.
16[on accepting her Oscar, 1983] I am going to cry because this show has been as long as my career! I have wondered for 26 years what this would feel like! Thank you for terminating the suspense.
17[on Oscars] I love to win those things. Love it. The only part about it I don't like is the red carpet and getting a dress and walking around in high heels and holding in my stomach. I hate that.
18[New York Times interview, Oct. 16, 2005]: I regret turning down the lead role in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974) which Ellen Burstyn deservedly won an Oscar for. I said to myself: "Who is this Martin Scorsese person?".
19I can't define longevity. I don't know what it means.
20An actor has many lives and many people within him. I know there are lots of people inside me. No one ever said I'm dull.
21[about her considering ballet as a profession) I was never good enough to be a soloist. Quatre ballet was about all I could handle. I didn't have those beautifully constructed feet [high arches, high insteps]. My extension on my left leg was pretty good, but I didn't point my foot with that grace that suggests true beauty.
22I think in my 40s, right around the time of The Turning Point (1977), that I began to address myself more to the future. See, I wasn't afraid of getting old, because I never had the problems the other actresses my age had. I was never a great beauty. I was never a sex symbol. I did, however, have great legs, because I was a dancer. But I didn't have that baggage. I wasn't interested in my stature as a star. Ever. I was just interested in good parts.
23I had a video made of my recent knee operation. The doctor said it was the best movie I ever starred in.
24It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he's in love, drunk, or running for office.
25Some people think I look like a sweet potato, I consider myself a spud with a heart of gold.

#Trademark
1Her eternally red hair
2Strong-willed characters who fluctuate between endearing and abrasive
3Her trademark theme song, taken from the movie, Sweet Charity (1969), is "If My Friends Could See Me Now". It is usually the music that accompanies her when she makes entrances on talk shows.
