In the summer of 2021, Christina Applegate revealed that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Since then, she has been candid about her experience and raising awareness about the autoimmune disease, and on Tuesday, the actress shared some things she’d like to do “with the days I have left in life.”

In a post shared to X, Applegate wrote, “There are things I want to do with the days I have left in life,” adding, “I want to work with Shirley MacLaine And do shots with cher! And yes my days are so big. Just saying.”

Applegate has previously voiced her admiration for MacLaine — the multiple award-winning actress behind Terms of EndearmentCoco ChanelSteel Magnolias, and more recently, featuring in Downton Abbey and Only Murders in the Building. “I wish I could work with Shirley MacLaine That’s all. Woke up and that dream I have had for my whole life, washed over me,” the Dead to Me actress wrote on social media in June. “And I wept for a minute. And I’m sure I will again. Oh and Shirley, I don’t have your number anymore so…….”

The beloved actress received a standing ovation at the Emmy Awards in January, where she presented the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy. In a moment of levity, Applegate joked: “You’re totally shaming me, with a disability, by standing up — it’s fine!”

This year, she launched the podcast, MeSsy, with co-host Jamie-Lynn Sigler (who revealed in 2016 that she was diagnosed with MS when she was 20) to discuss their shared struggles with MS and help others in the process.
