Woody Allen won’t be taking any bets on who his son Ronan Farrow’s biological father is, because even he’s not sure.
Allen was in a relationship with Ronan’s mother, Mia Farrow, when the journalist was born in 1987, but the Rosemary’s Baby actress admitted in 2013 that he could “possibly” be the son of Frank Sinatra, her husband from 1966 to 1968.
Woody believes Ronan is his son, but admits he has often second guessed himself.
“In my opinion, he’s my child,” he tells New York magazine. “I think he is, but I wouldn’t bet my life on it.
“I paid for child support for him for his whole childhood, and I don’t think that’s very fair if he’s not mine. Also she (Mia) represented herself as a faithful person, and she certainly wasn’t. Whether she actually became pregnant in an affair she had (I don’t know).”
Woody’s revelation came during an explosive interview his wife Soon-Yi Previn gave, in which she alleged her adopted mother Mia abused her.
The 82-year-old no longer has a relationship with Ronan, and Farrow’s daughter Dylan has accused the director of sexually abusing her when she was young – allegations he has vehemently denied.
Ronan has not spoken out on Woody’s comments about his biological dad, but he has defended his mum against Previn’s accusations.
“As a brother and a son, I’m angry that New York Magazine would participate in this kind of a hit job, written by a longtime admirer and friend of Woody Allen’s,” he writes on Twitter. “As a journalist, I’m shocked by the lack of care for the facts, the refusal to include eyewitness testimony that would contradict falsehoods in this piece and the failures to print my sister’s (Dylan) responses.”
