Soon-Yi was 21 on the time. Woody, then 56, was the daddy of three of Mia’s kids.
“[I] was at his apartment because I wasn’t working that day,” the Rosemary’s Baby star mentioned within the Feb. 21 episode, which additionally examines Allen’s alleged inappropriate relationship with their daughter Dylan Farrow. “So, I took one of many children over that we left a coat over there, and there by the aspect of the telephone, to the proper of the telephone, was his stack of Polaroid photos, of pornographic photos of a girl, a woman. And I picked them up and I noticed all of them had been of Soon-Yi. It was my very own little one.
“She was in her first year of college and they were all just like… They wouldn’t put them in Playboy. They were like, I don’t know, Hustler pictures or something. [They] really were raunchy pictures and I, you know, I… I remember struggling to breathe. I remember getting my son, trying to put his coat on, trying to do the buttons.”
Mia added: “I took the photos and I put them in my pocket and I was leaving and then I just realized that I don’t even think I could push the elevator button. I was just like shaking. And I took my child home and I locked the door.”
Mia and Woody had been a pair for 12 years by the point she found the photographs. Soon-Yi, who was born in South Korea, is without doubt one of the six kids that she had together with her ex-husband, composer, Andre Previn. Mia confronted her daughter as quickly as she returned from Woody’s condo.
“Soon-Yi was home and I remember saying. ‘I found the pictures,’” Mia added, “And she said, ‘What pictures?’ And I said, ‘The pictures Woody took.’ And she started crying and I started crying and I’m like, ‘No, no, it’s not your fault.’ And she was beside herself.”
Mia then described how the Annie Hall director came visiting to her condo to debate the problem. “And then Woody was there for like four hours, just talking and talking and talking,” she mentioned. “And first he said, ‘I’m in love with Soon-Yi. I would marry her.’ And then he said, ‘No, I just said that. It’s something I thought of in the car. I thought it would make it better if I put it that way. No, I love you.’ Then it was all that for four hours: ‘I made a mistake, I lost control.’ Blah-blah-blah. I didn’t know what to think. I just needed him to get out.”
Woody and Soon-Yi’s affair grew to become an epic Hollywood scandal and led to a bitter, public cut up between Allen and Farrow, who by no means wed. The Blue Jasmine director went on to marry Soon-Yi and collectively they’ve two kids of their very own – Manzie, 21, and Bechet, 22.
Back in 1992, nevertheless, Mia was left with the unenviable activity of explaining to the remainder of her kids (she then had 9 on the time) that Woody had taken nude photographs of their sister. “I would rather have cut off my arm than have to tell them that,” she mentioned.
“I came home one day and my mom was crying and she was standing in the doorway of Soon-Yi’s bedroom and Soon-Yi was on the floor and she was crying,” Dylan mentioned in Allen v. Farrow. The 35-year-old added, “It was like somebody had shut the lights off. Everything was suddenly very dark and confusing for a kid.” She additionally mentioned, “I remember my mom told me and [my brother] Ronan, ‘Daddy took naked pictures of Soon-Yi,’ and that was sort of the first instance that I thought, ‘Oh, it’s not just me.’”
Allen v. Farrow will delve into the breakdown of Mia and Woody’s relationship, their bitter custody dispute and Dylan’s allegations that her father was sexually inappropriate together with her.
reached out to the director and his spouse Soon-Yi for remark. “These documentarians had no interest in the truth,” a spokesperson for the couple mentioned. “Instead, they spent years surreptitiously collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers to place collectively a hatchet job riddled with falsehoods. Woody and Soon-Yi had been approached lower than two months in the past and given solely a matter of days ‘to respond.’ Of course, they declined to take action.
“As has been known for decades, these allegations are categorically false. Multiple agencies investigated them at the time and found that, whatever Dylan Farrow may have been led to believe, absolutely no abuse had ever taken place. It is sadly unsurprising that the network to air this is HBO – which has a standing production deal and business relationship with Ronan Farrow. While this shoddy hit piece may gain attention, it does not change the facts.”
