SHIRLEY MACLAINE AND JACK BLACK LIGHT UP THE STAGE TOGETHER

Last night I attended one of the best film panels at the LA Film Fest, sponsored by the LA Times and Dove Hair Care, that I have ever seen! The cast of characters included Jack Black and screen legend and one of my fave actresses-the unforgettable and incomparable Shirley MacLaine. The panel, in support of the duo’s latest flick Bernie, was moderated by Leonard Maltin who did a pretty good job of keeping up with these two and their witty banter!

One of the best stories of the evening was Shirley explaining about the first time she met one of the most famous blonde bombshells:
“I’ll tell you a story: I came out of the first screening of The Apartment, and it was at some little screening room here in town. I left before the lights went up, and I walked out of the door and there, up against kind of a bar because they were serving food and drinks, was a woman — a blonde swathed in a white mink coat. I walked over to her just to talk, and she said [whispering], ‘You were so wonderful! Just brilliant!’ She opened up the coat and she had nothing on. Marilyn.
I was tweeting away their memorable quotes and anecdotes last night. My fingers could barely keep up!:
