Woody allen dating his daughter
I provided her with enormous opportunities, and she has sparked to them. The show is a silly little show, but she's very good at what she does.” And then she emerged as a singer, and someone showed me a little clip of hers from , and I said, “It confirms what I always thought about her: She is very good, she is really a talented girl.” She wanted to take some time off, but she [agreed to do the series] because the role interested her.
She's educated herself and has tons of friends and children and got a college degree and went to graduate school, and she has traveled all over with me now. Mia Farrow with children and grandchildren, photographed at Frog Hollow, in Connecticut.
She’s very sophisticated and has been to all the great capitals of Europe. So the contributions I’ve made to her life have given me more pleasure than all my films.
Breaking his intense privacy in a rare interview with NPR's film critic Sam Fragoso, Allen describes in detail why 'the dynamic worked' between them, insisting the age difference 'didn't seem to matter' - 'It seemed to work in our favor actually.'He said: 'I started the relationship with her and I thought it would just be a fling.
Their love began under inauspicious circumstances, as a secret affair during Allen’s 12-year relationship with Mia Farrow.
The couple’s 35-year age difference—Previn was college-aged when she started dating Allen, who was in his late 50s—might have seemed merely quirky, not sinister, had Previn not been Farrow’s adopted daughter.
She's educated herself and has tons of friends and children and got a college degree and went to graduate school, and she has traveled all over with me now.
Spoiler alert: the entire interview is all kinds of creepy and condescending.
A bit of background: In 1992, Allen's relationship with actress and activist Mia Farrow crumbled under the revelation that he had had an affair with her 21-year-old adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn. More recently, in February of 2014, his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow published a letter accusing Allen of sexually assaulting her when she was a child.
Add that to persistent allegations that Allen molested his and Farrow’s then-7-year-old adopted daughter, Dylan, in 1992, and the coupling of Allen and Previn takes on a disturbing connotation.
Allen hasn’t done much to counter the appearance that his conceptions of fatherhood and sexuality are pathologically intertwined. She deferred to me, and I was happy to give her an enormous amount of decision-making just as a gift and let her take charge of so many things. Husbands don’t typically “give” their wives autonomous decision-making power—that’s something parents give to children, step by step, by doing things like letting them pick which flavor of ice cream to buy if they get all A’s at school.
