Mia Farrow suggests that son Ronan Farrow might be Frank Sinatra’s


— Mia Farrow when asked if Ronan (officially, her one biological child with Woody Allen) was actually fathered by Frank Sinatra, the short-term first husband she tells Vanity Fair was the love of her life: “We never really split up.” Hmmm. Are you seeing it? We’re not really seeing it. Actually. . . yeah, maybe around the eyes, now that you mention it. And the nose. Possibly the jaw and mouth. The forehead. Hmmm…

(Nancy Sinatra tells the magazine they consider the 25-year-old Rhodes Scholar and former State Department aide part of the family.) Regardless, the story is a sensational opportunity for the ever-beguiling Farrow family to rehash the drama of 22 years ago, when Allen took up with Farrow’s adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn and Farrow accused her ex of molesting their daughter Dylan, who speaks publicly for the first time: “I was seven. I was doing it because I was scared. I wanted it to stop.” (Allen has continually denied the claims.)

Update, 11 a.m.:  Clever retort from the scion himself. It’s enough to make you think he might actually be Woody’s kid after all.
