The lunch outing came just weeks after the television and film star was honored at the 2023 Industry Dance Awards & Cancer Benefit Show.
While MacLaine, who will turn 90 in April, requires a health aide these days, she has not shied away from industry events or red carpets.
She was seen beaming on the red carpet at the October 19 event, where she looked as stylish as ever in a floral embroidered black blazer, black slacks, and black flats.
With a deep-rooted history in dance, MacLaine received the Lifetime Achievement Award during the ceremony, which was presented to her by actress Annette Bening, 65.
The two are actually sisters-in-law, with Bening being married to to MacLaine’s brother, fellow Hollywood star Warren Beatty, 86.
