Mia Farrow: Son with Woody Allen may actually be Frank Sinatra's
'Rosemary's Baby' actress Mia Farrow has hinted that the son she apparently fathered with Oscar winning director Woody Allen might actually be Frank Sinatra's child.
Farrow was speaking at length to Vanity Fair magazine whereby she admitted that Ronan Farrow, who bears more of a resemblence to Sinata than Allen, may "possibly" have been fathered by ex-husband Frank Sinatra.
Allen's spokesperson said that the claims are "so fictitious and extravagantly absurd that he is not going to comment."
Ronan Farrow, 25, added to the speculation by tweeting: "Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son."
In excerpts released ahead of the November publication of Vanity Fair, Farrow claims she and Sinatra "never really split up" following the demise of their two-year marriage in 1968.
Farrow went on to marry composer Andre Previn. They had three children and adopted three more.
Woody Allen and Mia Farrow had a 12-year relationship and made 13 films together but their professional and personal relationship suddenly ended in 1992 when it was revealed that 'Annie Hall' filmmaker Allen was having a secret affair with Farrow's adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn.
A custody battle ensued whereby Allen was even accused of molesting their adopted daughter Dylan. Allen denied the charges and the case was never proved but Dylan was also interviewed by Vanity Fair for the same issue in which she is quoted as saying "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."
In 2005, Allen confirmed that doesn't see the three children from his relationship with Farrow.
In related news, Woody Allen will receive the honorary Cecil B DeMille award at next year's Golden Globes ceremony.
