In a 2013 Vanity Fair story, Farrow’s mother, actress Mia Farrow, revealed that Ronan’s biological father was “possibly” her ex-husband Frank Sinatra, and not Woody Allen. At the end of Maher’s interview with Farrow on Friday’s HBO show, the comedian applauded the journalist’s first book — “War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence” — and articles late last year in The New Yorker which helped uncover the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse accusations. Although the journalist has joked about it in the past, tweeting at the time “Listen, we’re all *possibly* Frank Sinatra’s son,” some on Twitter thought Farrow’s paternity was no laughing matter.
Mia Farrow expanded on the tumultuous year her children have had, revealing that she originally didn’t want her daughter Dylan to go public with her story of alleged abuse at the hands of Farrow’s ex-partner Woody Allen.

Woody Allen has released a statement following his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow’s interview with Gayle King on Thursday’s “CBS This Morning.” Farrow spoke out in graphic detail about a sexual assault she said she suffered at the hands of Allen when she was 7 years old. “Even though the Farrow family is cynically using the opportunity afforded by the Time’s Up movement to repeat this discredited allegation, that doesn’t make it any more true today than it was in the past,” he added. The daughter of actress Mia Farrow said that Allen sexually molested her at her home in Connecticut while she played with her brother’s toy train set.
Woody Allen faced a growing backlash Wednesday after his daughter revived child molestation allegations against the legendary director, asking the world to finally believe her as a sexual harassment watershed sweeps the United States. Dylan Farrow's claim that the director sexually assaulted her as a seven-year-old first surfaced a quarter of a century ago in the wake of her mother's bitter split from Allen, who ran off in 1992 with his lover's adoptive daughter from a previous marriage, Soon-Yi Previn, 21 years old at the time. In the wake of the Time's Up movement launched by Hollywood women to counter sexual harassment and sexism, Allen's estranged, adopted daughter said it was time for the world to finally listen.
