    Shirley MacLaine never wants to retire

    The 85-year-old actress - who has featured in over 50 movies throughout her illustrious Hollywood career - "doesn't want to quit acting" with four projects lined up next year and admitted that some of her co-stars are surprised by her decision to continue working.


    In an interview with People magazine, she said: "I don't want to quit acting - I really don't. Even at my age, I have four pictures to do next year. I think [some] co-stars are surprised I'm still walking upright."

    The 'Steel Magnolias' star - who has been nominated for an Academy Award six times throughout her career and won an Oscar for her performance in 1983's 'Terms of Endearment' - confessed that she wants to keep making movies as she "learns so much" from every film she acts in.

    She said: "I learn so much about what I don't really know every time I'm on a movie."

    The 'Apartment' actress went on to explain that she's considering what the future holds for her and she wants to be a spokesperson for older-women.

    She said: "I look back at the wonderful parts I've played, and I'm thinking about the future, and I want to be a spokesperson for older-women -- probably because I'm one."

    Shirley currently resides in Abiquiu, New Mexico, where she lives "totally alone" and often travels to the "artistic and restaurant and new-age capital" Santa Fe.

    She added: "I have someone who comes in a couple of times a week, but otherwise I'm totally alone. I sometimes go to Santa Fe, which is one of the artistic and restaurant and new age capitals in the country."
