Exclusive: Mia Farrow and Eight of Her
Children Speak Out on Their Lives, Frank
Sinatra, and the Scandals They’ve Endured

Vanity Fair Magazine, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 10/2/2013 8:35:24 AM

Twenty years after Vanity Fair special correspondent Maureen Orth reported on the sexual-abuse case involving Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter Dylan, Orth reconnects with Farrow to discuss her human-rights work, her relationship with Frank Sinatra, the home she created for her 14 adopted and biological children, and the scandal that nearly destroyed it, 20 years ago. For her piece in the November issue, Orth talks to eight of Farrow’s children, including the long-silent Dylan, who speaks on the record for the first time about the alleged incident. Farrow discusses her relationship with Frank Sinatra, telling Orth that Sinatra was

When I was a kid, my mother who was about as star-struck as a ranch-raised rancher´s wife in remote West Texas could be, was very impressed that Mia´s mother, Maureen O´Sullivan, gave up her career for her husband and children. A few years ago, I read that Johnny Farrow was a legendary Hollywood sleep-around, so I´m glad my mother didn´t know that part of the story.

I have great sympathy for the experiences the children have suffered and the scares it has left upon them. It wasn´t their fault that their mother was nothimng more than a common garden gnome road whore.

Some may think, "Who cares?", but it seems that Mia Farrow´s children have, like MIa, compassion for those who suffer. Woody Allen is a pervert who defended Roman Polanski, another Hollywood pervert.

Interesting article. In Anthony Summers´s Sinatra: The Life (which I highly recommend for anyone interested in the public and private life of the Chairman of the Board) there are voluminous footnotes after the text, and in one footnote, Summers reveals that when Frank heard about Woody Allen´s unfaithfulness--with his adopted daughter, no less--he called Mia and helpfully offered to have both of Woody´s legs broken. Mia didn´t want to go quite that far. It´s interesting to learn that she thinks that Frank might be the father of Ronan Farrow, who looks shockingly similar to Frank. He looks nothing like Woody.

I also recommend the Woody Allen-Mia Farrow movie Broadway Danny Rose (1984), which is fairly typical Woody Allen fare. The scene with the laughing gas is very funny.

Woody will still be a darling of the Leftist elites - his films and comedy routines favored Leftist causes and that takes precedence over his perversions and abuses of small children.

There is recurring wonder at how the Left protects and rehabilitates their pets. It should not be any surprise. The Left has defended and supported Mussolini, 10 million dead, Hitler, 25-50 million dead, Stalin, 100 million dead and Mao, 300 million dead. These are rough numbers but still, a half a billion dead people? Whats a little child rape for people who look at snuffing out a half a billion people?

I understand the "who cares?" response, but unfortunately, we´d BETTER care. In the absence of our objection these people and others like them have for decades been defining the popular culture that bombards us and our children.

An anecdote:

Recently while rummaging around the cable channels I came across an early Mia Farrow movie. I had the sound muted and watched it a bit with the sound off. I can´t recall which movie it was, but she was the female love interest in it. Seeing only the visuals, with no distracting sound track, it quickly became apparent that they had her dressed like a child, acting child-like, and striking child-like poses. I changed the channel. It was sick.

Remember, Farrow´s big movie, Rosemary´s Baby, was directed by ... Roman Polanski. By the way, Frank Sinatra was only 4 years younger than Mia Farrow´s mother, and 30 years older than Mia. There´s plenty to go around.

Ronan Farrow also looks a lot like his mother, Mia Farrow. It´s anyone´s guess whether he is Frank´s son, but it does make an interesting possibility. An better alternative to the loathesome Woody Allen whom Mia once married, too.

Mia Farrow and her sort of airy-fairy liberalism played a big part in her tumultous life story. She brought this to her children. Deserves to share the blame.

Although probably not meant, posting variants of "who cares" to an article is disrespectful to its poster. Posters of articles should be encouraged where possible and not discouraged. It costs nothing to pass over an uninteresting article without comment.

I wouldn´t take one word the self-serving, mildly psychotic Mia Farrow said for truth - or anything even approaching it.
She seems demonstrably far crazier than Woody Allen while only half as intelligent. Consequently not nearly the entertaining body of work - with most of the entertaining ones produced under his direction.

Poster who contrasted Farrow´s own odd relationship with man 30 years her senior to Allen´s with young woman he was never related to in any way or bonded with in any parental sense was right on point.
She´s really just a bitter old frustrated hag.
Also, had once thought Ronan Farrow did in fact resemble Woody Allen, but wow, those eyes.

In late February, the City University of New York announced that it had tapped Princeton economist and New York Times blogger Paul Krugman for a distinguished professorship at CUNY’s Graduate Center and its Luxembourg Income Study Center, a research arm devoted to studying income patterns and their effect on inequality. About that. According to a formal offer letter obtained under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.” It is not

As predictable as the media silence to follow comes the news that New York City´s new left-wing mayor, who ran on a platform based in large part on raising taxes, paid an effective 8.3% tax rate in 2013 based on a total income of over $200,000. Mayor de Blasio and his wife made $167,047 in income, $52,000 in rental income on a second home in Park Slope, and reported charitable donations that totaled just 3% of their income, or $5,597.

Attorney General Eric Holder‘s planned meeting with mainstream media outlets’ Washington bureau chiefs have been stalled after the Justice Department indicated that the conversations would be off-the-record. The New York Times‘ executive editor Jill Abramson was the first to decline the invitation, and shortly after the AP, CNN, CBS News and The Huffington Post followed suit. With much of the debate over the DOJ’s subpoena guidelines revolving around reporter James Rosen, Fox News clearly has a vested interest in the outcome of the meeting. While there appears to be a mini-campaign among Fox anchors to send Rosen himself to the meeting

Here’s a thought for the day: Most people are “nice”, but Christians should be nice with a purpose. I am not a fan of the sitcom Rev, which depicts a vicar trying to be kind to his parishioners – with hilarious consequences. His congregation is small, full of delinquents, and the eponymous clergymen is often driven to drink by their unholy antics. Justin Welby disagrees with the show’s depiction of Anglican life because he notes that many churches are growing. The Rev’s, by contrast, conforms to a self-lacerating vision of Christianity as nice but niche. But self-laceration is the stock-in-trade of the

Louisiana GOP: Mary Landrieu ad fakery

Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, in a neck-and-neck race for re-election, is taking a lot of criticism over a new ad -- her first this season -- depicting herself taking on "Washington" to protect the interests of Louisiana´s oil and gas industry. What Landrieu did to invite the ridicule was to re-create for her ad producers her own performance in a Senate hearing -- complete with set, supporting cast, fake nameplate, and even phony news chyrons -- to show her standing up for her state. The unspoken message of the ad -- something Landrieu could never say directly -- is that

When recently asked what she was most proud of from her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton replied that the office was like a “relay race.” “When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton,” she said. Mrs. Clinton was unable to cite any specific achievement, though she did make the rather dubious claim that “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense.” Even some of her most ardent admirers couldn’t figure out a good answer to the question about her greatest achievement, during a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” As Ed

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will spend $50 million this year to build a nationwide grassroots network on gun control in a direct challenge to the National Rifle Association, The New York Times reported. The new lobbying group, called Everytown for Gun Safety, will encompass other gun control groups funded by Bloomberg, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the report said. Bloomberg told the Times the strategy will focus on expanding the background check system for gun buyers at the state and national levels.

Last week, the president’s lap dog blew his dog whistle. In case you didn’t know, in politics a “dog whistle” is coded language that has a superficial meaning for everybody, but also a special resonance for certain constituencies. Using dog whistles lets politicians deny they meant to say anything nasty, bigoted, or controversial. Speaking to the National Action Network the day after a testy but racially irrelevant exchange with Republican members of a House panel, Attorney General Eric Holder said, “The last five years have been defined . . . by lasting reforms even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly,

He called the battle for the House a "struggle" for Democrats but predicted the party would retain control of the Senate. The flawed rollout of the health-care Web site "was a problem because we had

The administration’s “smart diplomacy” does not include providing aid to those who fight internal oppression or outside aggression and whose victory potentially would obviate the need for direct U.S. action. Hence, President Obama gave Iran’s Green Revolution the cold shoulder in June 2009. He denied aid, and then dragged his feet on delivering aid to non-jihadi rebels in Syria. Now, it should come as no surprise, he is unwilling to provide Ukraine with military aid or intelligence to defend itself against Russian aggression.

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
