the kid's a genius. he sure as hell didn't get that from mia. and i'm pretty sure Sinatra wouldn't have had that in him either

I can hear Woody Allen right now: "Who's your daddy?! WHO'S YOUR DADDY?!?" Oh, wait, he says that every night.

Other then the blue eyes, he looks more like Allen then Sinatra.

She is the mother of Frank Sinatra Jr.

Sinatra was really smart.  Not well-educated or well-read (like Dean Martin was) but just really smart.  He didn't have any outlet for it which is one of the reasons he was so frustrated and angry.

What I love about Mia is that in her rage to blame everything on Woody, she forgets that she was barely legal when she married Andre Previn and that there was something like 40 years between her and Sinatra when they wed.

The other thing the article fails to mention is that Mia and Woody kept separate apartments throughout their relationship (which was supposedly open).

Interesting, i didn't know that about Frank. I mean I always figured he had plenty of street smarts and common sense.

regardless though, that doesn't necessarily lead to genius. though who knows what does

at any rate, the poor kid doesn't have great common sense to be a part of his mother's public airing of this (undoubtedly) false and embarrassing info. i'm not slut-shaming. it's just not dignified to air your business like this.

Woody is probably a weirdo with kinks but i don't believe for a minute that he is the monster that Mia has convinced her children he was. she is the epitome of the bitter ex wife. let it go, Mia. You were hot once and when you weren't anymore your husband traded up. the fact that he chose your adopted daughter was icky for sure but you are not winning this public shaming charade. you just look sad

I supposed he didn't marry a girl to whom he was a father figure.

I don't defend that, though the extent to which he was a father figure is almost entirely semantic. Still a squicky thing to do but not on par with the bitter shiat that Mia has done in retaliation

Woody Allen was never a "father" figure to Soon-Yi Previn  and didn't really meet her until she was over 18.

The kid is totally chock full of Sinatra DNA - and he's damned lucky, given how freakin weird is mama is.

And it's kind of a moot point:  Sinatra's dead - I'm sure the kid has known it for a lot longer than when it was going public.  His half siblings seem to have been clued in on Sinatra's side.

But MAN - Mia Farrow is a crazy cat lady...just substitute adopted kids for cats.

\Woody is a talented man, but can't get past the utter squick of his marriage, and no amount of longevity to his wife will erase the pervy-ness I always gleen from hearing about him.

My take is that both Mia and Woody were deeply farked up people when they met, but that they managed to make each other happy while living a really unconventional life (he lived on the Upper East Side, she lived on the Upper West SIde, and he went home to his own bed most nights).

Obviously, their separation really unraveled Mia, as it's all she's been able to talk about in public for the last twenty years.  Yes, it really sucks that she's poisoned her kids against him, but they're all adults now and should be able to look at things through their own eyes.

The other aspect the media seems to leave out of the equation is Soon-Yi: yes, she was young when her relationship with Woody started (after Mia and Woody separated) but it was clearly of her own choice.  She and Woody have been married now longer than Woody and Mia were together, and from everything I've read, she supports and protects Woody in every aspect of his life.  He's gone from being a crippled neurotic to actually being happy in his life and work, so I can't fault them their relationship.

Who is this "Woddy Allen" you speak of?

I'm willing to defend him because he's playing the gentleman and not defending himself, no matter what accusations Mia throws at him.

And just for the sheer scale of it: look into Charlie Chaplin's personal life: one of his wives was 12 when he met her and 14 when their relationship started, and his last (very happy) marriage was to Eugene O'Neill's daughter, who was young enough to be Chaplin's granddaughter.

The kid could -if he wanted- make a play for part of Sinatra's estate.  But that seems unlikely.  If I were him, I'd want to know, just to know.

Woody and Soon-Yi never bothered me in the way that Roman Polanski does; in addition to the rape charge, he was well known for dating VERY young girls during his Hollywood period, and he was never faithful to Sharon Tate (nor her to him, apparently).

If you watch Woody's movies from the 1980s, older men falling in love with younger (or young) women is a constant theme.  Mia would have had to have been blind to not see it, as she was in some of the films!  But since he settled down with Soon-Yi, that's disappeared entirely from his films, replaced with much more adult (if dysfunctional) romantic relationships.

If only there were a scientific way to prove/disprove that.

Let's hear from Allen's son about Soon-Yi:

Allen's biological son with Farrow, Ronan Farrow (birth name Satchel) -- who is now a 23-year-old journalist/government official --said of the relationship according to Life Magazine:
"He's my father married to my sister. That makes me his son and his brother-in-law. That is such a moral transgression." , and,
"I cannot see him. I cannot have a relationship with my father and be morally consistent," he added, "I lived with all these adopted children, so they are my family. To say Soon-Yi was not my sister is an insult to all adopted children."

That pretty much sums it up for me, too.

It was funny, a couple of years ago, when the PBS documentary about Woody Allen was broadcast the same week when 'his' son's Rhodes scholarship was announced. They canceled out each other's thunder.
 
2013-10-02 02:06:15 PM  
Farrow said she was afraid that Allen, with his purported connections to shadowy Teamsters figures, could have her rubbed out. She said she relayed her concerns to someone she knew could protect her - the purportedly mob-connected Sinatra.
Sinatra wound up setting her up with a mafioso pal with whom she met in the back of a sedan on the Upper West Side at 72nd Street and Columbus Avenue.



Oh come the fark on.

It's commonly accepted knowledge that Sinatra offered to have Woody's legs broken when the whole story broke..

But the article is saying he's not Woody's biological son and Soon Yi was 18-ish when Satchel was born I doubt they ever lived in the same  house or had  too much any interaction while he was growing up.

I think he looks just like Sinatra.

He obviously considers Woody to be his father, whether biological or not. As to your point about his age difference with Soon Yi and their lack of interaction, that doesn't matter much because Ronan's mother of course considers Soon Yi to be her daughter, so by extension he would still think of her as his sister regardless of how well he knew her growing up. I guess it'd be sort of analogous to your father having an affair with his brother's wife, breaking up the marriage and then marrying her. Sure, they're not biologically related, nor do they consider themselves siblings, but still that's your aunt he's marrying. Even if she wasn't around much when you were growing up, it's still weird.

Just want to point out that Woody and Mia were never married. Carry on.
 
2013-10-02 08:04:58 PM  
She got karma for stealing Andre Previn from his wife.  But pray a rosary for her if that will make you feel better.

I think Ronan is gorgeous and so like a young Frank.  Che sera sera ...

The kid looks like Sinatra and Nancy Jr. said "He is a big part of us, and we are blessed to have him in our lives".  Seems like everyone has known for sometime but us. As for Sinatra being smart he wasn't a well educated guy but he was a brilliant businessman who made hundreds of millions of dollars and gave bunches of it to charity.
