An actor of some renown in the 1960s and 1970s, Shirley MacLaine became a New Age woo-meistress in the 1980s. Her books Out On a Limb (1983) and Dancing in the Light (1986) helped popularize New Age beliefs, from reincarnation to channelling. Some of her subsequent acting roles have been based on her status as a New Age guru. She briefly lived with Dennis Kucinich and was also involved with Australian politician Andrew Peacock.
"I think Cher was right. You are an asshole!" - Shirley MacLaine to David Letterman, after Letterman poked a little too much fun at her New Aginess.
