Mia and Ronan Farrow blast Woody Allen tribute on Twitter
Famously absent from awards shows for years, Woody Allen received the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement honour, which was accepted by the director’s Anne Hall star Diane Keaton.
Keaton delivered a mini-seminar on the greatness of Allen’s film career, especially his skill at creating women characters. Then she wrapped up her tribute in quirky style by saluting her friend of 45 years with a familiar children’s song: “A circle is round, it has no end,” she sang. “That’s how long you’re going to be my friend.”
Not everyone was applauding Woody Allen during the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night.
Allen’s ex-wife, Mia Farrow, and their son, Ronan Farrow, spoke out on Twitter. After tweeting real-time reactions during the Golden Globes, Mia stopped posting updates and tweeted, “Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to #GIRLS,” around the same time Woody Allen’s tribute was being shown.
Mia’s son Ronan, with a less cryptic approach, later posted on Twitter, saying, "Missed the Woody Allen tribute — did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?"
Mother and son later retweeted a link to a Vanity Fair article revealing Mia’s history with the filmmaker, including allegations of child sexual abuse involving their adoptive daughter, then seven year-old Dylan. Allen has denied the allegations for decades. A judge found that the sex abuse charges were inconclusive.
Mia Farrow made headlines last year when she suggested that her ex-husband Frank Sinatra could be Ronan Farrow’s father.
