Parker tells ABC News that MacLaine chose being a movie star over being a mother.
"She was very absent. I was very lonely -- very lonely. Definitely. And I still struggle with abandonment issues and loneliness," says Parker.
MacLaine said in a 1990 interview, "I saw my mother suppress her own creativity. I wasn't going to let that happen to me. First of all, children pick up on that and they feel guilty about ... having been responsible for your not realizing your creativity, so that was not going to happen. »
