Shirley MacLaine and Steve Parker
MacLaine married the late producer in 1954 and they divorced in 1982, but the Apartment actress revealed in 2016 how their partnership lasted for 28 years due to its open status.
“I guess you would say ‘practiced an open marriage’ in 1954, which was another lifetime,” the Virginia native told People. “No one understood it, we did. He lived in Japan basically, I lived in America working, and this and that. We’d meet up, always great friends, traveled sometimes together.”
She added: “I think that’s the basis for a long-lasting marriage if you really want to do such a thing. I would say better to stay friends and we don’t have enough time to talk about the sexuality of all. I was very open about all of that and so was he.”See Full Gallery
