Woody Allen’s adopted daughter confirms he abused her

Mia Farrow‘s adopted daughter Dylan, 27, has opened up to Vanity Fair, confirming she was molested by her adopted father Woody Allen, as her mother claimed over 20 years earlier. “I’m scared of him, his image,” Dylan said of her adopted father. “I have never been asked to testify. If I could talk to the seven-year-old Dylan, I would tell her to be brave, to testify.” She recalls an incident that had a big impact on her life. “There’s a lot I don’t remember, but what happened in the attic I remember. I remember what I was wearing and what I wasn’t wearing.” Despite many witnesses who confirm Allen’s behavior towards the young girl was strange, the director’s lawyer, Elkan Abramowitz, maintains his client still denies allegations of sexual abuse.

Mia (pictured above) also spoke to Vanity Fair, revealing that her son, Ronan Farrow, 25 (pictured above, inset), who was believed to be Allen’s only biological son, may actually be the son of Frank Sinatra. The Rosemary’s Baby star was married to Sinatra from 1966 to 1968, but maintained close ties to him after their divorce. Sinatra, who died in 1998, was 78 when Ronan, then called Satchel, was born in 1987. Ronan had a public falling out with Allen following the director’s split with Mia and subsequent marriage to Mia’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.

    seriously ,Woody Allen is a creepy little jerk.

  2. My Opinion • October 3, 2013 @ 5:17 PM

    I think Ronan looks like Neil Patrick Harris twin brother.

    Any man who would marry his daughter, adopted or not, has a problem (my opinion). Mia’s problems of anorexia and depression probably made it impossible for her to leave. Abusers tend to play with your mind and have you in fear..of this I know. It is all well and good to say why didn’t she leave but if you have not lived that abused life, you cannot understand. The fact that it took Dylan so long to come forward and to say anything is quite common in children who have been abused. I hope that she has councelling to help her now. The whole situation is sad as far as I am concerned and a good example of how fame covers up wrong doings. If he was a joe blow, this would have never been accepted behavior.

    Joanne – thanks for solving the mystery as to whether it’s Mia or Dylan in the picture.
    As for Mia cheating on Woody, I never mentioned it.
    Jonathan – you think witch hunts ruin lives!!! What do you think a pedophile does to a child’s life!!??

    I agree it is sick that Creepy Allen is revered and idiot loser actors overlook the pedophile stuff and jump through hoops to work with him. His movies are stupid and weird… A lot like him. Long ago, i watched part of a movie of his …thought it was creepy and dumb, heard about the Soonyi affair much later and would never watch a movie of his if you paid me.

    Really. After all these years? Just how much “Mia brainwashing” took place for this to “finally” come out. This is the adopted child of a mother who couldn’t keep her children’s biology straight. If there was a “screwiness” with this couple’s relationship, I believe it was on her part (Mia’s). She’s a publicity whore who misses the spotlight and now we have her well into once again with tales of molestation and the questionable biology of her son. What any man would ever see in this hag is beyond me. Lousy actress, lousy spouse and apparently, an extremely lousy mother who really has no clue who fathered her children. She’s a definite case for either Maury or Jerry.

    I don’t think there is a statute of limitations of child abuse in the USA either, as there have been many cases of alot older adults finally taking their abusers to court… and winning. If Dylan feels this is the truth now then she should talk to a DA and file charges.
    Mia stayed with Allen for so long as she had what 7 to 10 kids, some special needs, to care for plus with the verbal and emotional abuse she endured from Allen she definitely wasn’t strong enough to leave him for years.
    As for the alleged parenthood of Ronan/Satchel (glad he changed his name) only way to know is with DNA. Sinatra was known for keeping in contact with a couple of his ex-wives including Ava Gardener who admitted to the occasional fling with him and that he always wanted her back. He would have dropped the last wife in a second if Ava ever said “yes, I’ll take you back”. So not so far fetched that he helped Mia gain some of her self worth to leave Allen and have another fling with her.

    I will never accept that money can buy so much power as to hide such a fact… I have worked with abused children and the abusing fathers and mothers… I just can not accept acts of abuse… Not even from people of renown… Just soooo sad… A life ruined by one who had to have everything ? Sinatra was such a lover…

  9. Wendy • October 4, 2013 @ 9:50 AM

    I pray the truth is revealed to allow these poor children the chance to grieve the childhood they should have had but was robbed of them being adopted into such dysfunction and sickness….courage to young Dylan and parentage truth be known for sure for Ronan.

    All people should boycott his movies. He is a pedophile and should have been prosecuted for his abuse to Soon Yi.

  11. mitch • October 6, 2013 @ 6:05 PM

    This whole story sounds like a Springer or Povich Special.

  12. Alex • December 30, 2013 @ 11:44 PM

    Hopefully the creep is too old to go after his adopted kids anymore. The real tragedy would have been if Sun Yi and woody had passed on their looks to a biological child!

  13. Zee • January 13, 2014 @ 4:13 PM

    @jonathan, your an idiot comparing adult affairs, which involve CONSENT, with CHILD abuse! Seek a therapist immediately and remove yourself from the presence of children if you have a hard time understanding this.

    Mon plus jeune fils est n茅 30/06/12 et subi une colostomie de 2 semaines jusqu’au 10 d茅cembre quand il l’avait renvers茅. Il 茅tait tr猫s difficile d’apprendre 脿 mettre les sacs sur et gardez-les sans fuites j’茅tais frustr茅 de larmes 脿 de nombreuses reprises! Apr猫s environ une semaine, il est devenu plus facile et on a d茅velopp茅 une routine. J’ai toujours juste vid茅 en couches toutes les deux trois heures quand je l’ai chang茅, mais vous avez raison, cela n’a aucun sens avec les couches lavables. Si vous pouviez trouver un moyen de soutenir / dump dans les toilettes qui serait la moins salissante, sinon peut-锚tre vous pourriez vider dans un r茅cipient. Soyez pr锚t 脿 pr猫s de cinq mois quand ils commencent 脿 rouler beaucoup 脿 avoir un temps vraiment du mal 脿 garder les sacs de nouveau. Ils tombaient tous les 6 8 heures! C’est juste au moment o霉 mon fils avait la traction 脿 travers, donc je ne suis pas en mesure d’offrir des conseils 脿 ce sujet.

    Why is everyone so cool with Woody Allen, even after all this? The child herself testified, confessed to her mom, she was 7. Who could do that? Why would she lie when she’s so young? She loved her dad.
    When he was about 50 he married a 17 year old, then divorced then started screwing his teen adopted daughter, Soon Yi. F**king gross, and everyone’s endorsing him. Although he contributed a lot to the comedies over the last century, ashame it’s him, that surely puts a stain all over it. People keep endorsing him and feel so damn honoured to be in his movies. Except: Susan Sarandon and Elijah Wood.
