Shirley MacLaine's only child shares shocking stories from her out-of-this-world childhood with the famously eccentric actress. Sachi is the only child of Oscar winning actress, Shirley MacLaine and her husband of 32 years Steve Parker. Sachi's surreal childhood began when she was sent to Japan at a young age to live with her father and his mistress. She divided her time between being raised by a Japanese governess and holidays in LA with her mother where she would go to movie sets, Hollywood parties and almost receive the role of Scout in To Kill A Mockingbird.
