Woody Allen wanted little to do with partner Mia Farrow’s seven children, but when they adopted one together, Mia said he had a specific request

Mia Farrow claims ex-partner Woody Allen had an oddly specific request before adopting their daughter Dylan in 1985: he wanted her to choose a “little blonde girl”

Farrow already had seven adopted and biological children when she and acclaimed director Allen started dating in 1980

In Part 1 of the disturbing new documentaries Allen vs. Farrow, which premiered this week on Foxtel, USA, she says Allen showed little interest in her brood of seven and lived apart from her and her children throughout her time have relationship

“He said,” Yes, I wouldn’t mind, but you have to understand that I have no interest in having a child, so you would be fully responsible financially and in all respects, “Farrow claims in the document

Farrow said she was okay with this arrangement – but after several years trying to have a baby and not getting pregnant, she asked if they could adopt instead

“He said if I wanted to do this it wouldn’t ruin the relationship, but he didn’t want anything to do with it” I thought that’s fair, “she recalled,

Farrow said that given her history of adopting children from abroad, Allen had a request for their final adoption: “He could be kinder if it was a little blonde girl”

“I thought if he cares, I should try to find a little girl like this and maybe he’ll love her,” she said

Farrow and other family members claim in the documentary that Allen’s love has become an all-consuming obsession

In excerpts from Allen’s own audio book 2020 Apropos of Nothing, the director explained his feelings for Baby Dylan in his own words

“I quickly found this little girl adorable and found myself getting more into holding her, playing with her and falling completely in love with her, delighted to be her father”

Casey Pascal, a close friend of Farrow’s, described it as “the incredible intensity Woody had for Dylan”

“I remember thinking,” I’ve never seen anyone act like this with a child and I really hope that what happens is good ’”


The family imploded in 1992 when Mia discovered nudes of adoptive daughter Soon-Yi Previn in Allen’s house after the split, then seven-year-old Dylan accused Woody of molesting her, an accusation he has always denied

Allen and his now wife Soon-Yi released a statement shortly after the first episode of the document aired in the US criticizing the sexual abuse allegations against him as a “hatchet job” that was “full of falsehoods.”
