Shirley Jones: “I Do What I Want’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Screen veteran Shirley Jones does whatever she wants with her career.

Beginning tomorrow (Jan. 31) until February 7, the acclaimed actress will have a run starring on Days of Our Lives, and for Jones, drumming up the drama on a daytime soap opera was just another hurdle for her to hop.

Jones – best known for playing Shirley Partridge on The Partridge Family – says, “I came away with great admiration for everyone who does this every day. I love new challenges, even at my age. I may fail, but I’m not afraid.”

Jones’ sassy streak also extends to movie roles, like her role as a seductive grandma in Grandma’s Boy, which left her friends blushing – and Jones beaming.

Jones says, “I have people coming up to me all the time saying, ‘I loved you in Grandma’s Boy!’ My friends were a little shocked, but you gotta try new things.”
