CULVER CITY, Calif. (AP) — It's not just a single life that gets toted up when Shirley MacLaine receives a career award. It's all her lives — past, present and future.
MacLaine earned the American Film Institute's life-achievement award Thursday night with friends and colleagues praising her accomplishments in this life — and cracking jokes about the reincarnation believer's other lives.
Jack Black presented a hilarious reel of himself congratulating MacLaine at life-achievement honors from prehistoric times to the Elizabethan era to U.S. colonial days. Carrie Fisher described MacLaine as some lucky future person's past life. Jack Nicholson said MacLaine loves her audiences and is the only person outside the clergy promising them eternal life.
The AFI tribute to MacLaine will air June 24 on TV Land.
