I'm not sure where you're getting your information. Perhaps it's
simply that great distance causes these kinds of
misunderstandings and misperceptions. However, MacLaine is not
"a very influential person in American society" with "a voice
largely heard and respected, even by key figures in government."
It sounds as if you're repeating something one of her p.r. hacks
concocted.

MacLaine may have influenced the occasional reader of her books,
but she is not an influential (much less "very influential")
figure in society. She is a well-regarded entertainment
professional, but her books have earned her the reputation of
being just another actor with eccentric personal views well
outside the mainstream. Actually, to put it bluntly, MacLaine is
generally regarded as something of a nut, albeit a harmless one.

Where the narrow interests of actual ufology are concerned, she
has never done anything at all. It doesn't surprise me, though,
that she's allied herself with the "disclosure" types.
