Shirley MacLaine pulled no punches when asked about her take on life at age 80 .MacLaine is among the very few octogenarians who still get name-above-the-title billing, which she shares with 84-year-old co-star Christopher Plummer in the big-screen dramedy "Elsa & Fred," the upcoming American remake of the 2005 foreign-language favorite.At first glance, MacLaine's Elsa is merely the nutty neighbor to Plummer's Fred, who has pretty much given up on living in the wake of his wife's recent passing.No doubt, the character looming largest over MacLaine's career and persona is the feisty, fiercely protective Aurora Greenway from the 1983 blockbuster "Terms of Endearment".It's ironic that, after more than a quarter-century making movies, playing Aurora finally earned her the best-actress Oscar because, MacLaine said, it wasn't really acting.
