Shirley Maclaine Addresses Life's Questions

Did you know Oscar winner Shirley Maclaine is also a prolific author?

She just published her fourteenth book called: "What If: A Lifetime of Questions, Speculations, Reasonable Guesses, and a Few Things I Know For Sure."

It's a thought-provoking book filled with questions and musings about her life and the world.

Maclaine joined the "New Day" anchors Wednesday to talk about her work.

The writer said: "It's sort of like, if you're smart and rational at all, you have to be anxious about the world. That leads me to these other levels. And it's sort of like imagination is more important than knowledge. I don't know if some of my answers that I think might be springboards to more questions are answers at all. I'm having a good time exploring the 'what if' of it all. But I'm in show business and that's what you do."
