Ronan Farrow’s not cool with the Golden Globes’ Woody Allen hype

Woody Allen attends 'You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger' photocall at Hotel de la Reconquista on August 24, 2010 in Oviedo, Spain.

When Woody Allen won the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at last night’s Golden Globe Awards, it was easy to forget some of the more tawdry accusations leveled against him. But his son is going to make sure we don’t do that.

Boom! Ronan and his mother, Mia Farrow, seem determined to ensure that the “Annie Hall” director’s film achievements never overshadow his personal faults. Though Allen is now married to Soon-Yi Previn, Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter (and Ronan’s sister), Ronan’s tweet actually refers to his sister Dylan, who publicly accused Allen of molesting her as a child in a 2013 Vanity Fair story.

Mia’s Woody-bashing was a little more subtle last night – she decided to take a little break just when Diane Keaton turned up to accept the award for him.

Even DNA may not bind the estranged father and son: In that same Vanity Fair profile, Mia admitted that Ronan may actually be Frank Sinatra’s biological child, not Woody’s.
