Woody Allen Hearts Pablo Picasso

Woody Allen Hearts Pablo Picasso

Woody Allen takes his family — sister Letty, 65, his wife Soon-Yi Previn, 36, and their daughters Bechet, 8, Manzie, 7 — to visit the “Picasso et Les Maitres” exhibition at Grand Palais Museum on The Champs Elysees Avenue in Paris on Sunday (December 28).

Later in the day in Poland, the 74-year-old director performed his clarinet with the New Orleans Jazz Band at Warsaw’s Sala Kongresowa. The audience of almost 3,000 gave Woody a standing ovation. (He rarely performs in large venues or outside New York City, where he lives.)

I am sorry, I know it has been years and years, but I cannot stand to see pics of these two together. I felt it was so wrong at the time they got together, and all I can see when I look at them is father and daughter. I know biologically they aren’t, but he was her father figure when she was growing up and I just think it’s disgusting that he left Mia Farrow to be with their daugther. JMO

Woody allen should go ahead and die already he is a sick pedo and I HATE him. These pics are just upsetting

I thought it was as gross as the next person at the time, but as a fan of Allen’s was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. If anyone has read Mia Farrow’s memoir, they would know that while she condemns him for his betrayal, the fact was that he never wanted to be a Dad to her dozen or so adopted kids – he lived in a separate apt., and always resisted her attempts to make him the Daddy. It sounded like he was a peripheral boyfriend type figure to them and only took interest in his own biological child. Yes it’s still creepy and weird, but he has been with this person for what ten years now, if he was truly some paedo would he not have moved on to a younger model by now? They have a family, she is in her thirties, people need to get over it.

I also find it creepy, but how much longer can you harp on something? This happened years ago- today they are married, they have a family, they seem to be a happy married couple. I don’t justify his behavior, but I let the issue go a long time ago.

What he did is no more disturbing than Roman Polanski who drugged and raped a 14 year old girl. And he received a standing ovation at the Oscars when he won best director for The Pianist.

We could also say Charlie Chaplin was a pedophile because he slept with and married much younger women (girls as young as 15/16). But he was married to his 4th wife for 34 years (which the age difference was huge- 35/40 years or so- and she was underage when they met).

edie: exactly what I was thinking. I was already aware that Woody never lived with Mia full-time and that the majority of her adopted children were adopted while she was married to Andre Previn. So he was never a father figure to the children- if anything, he was distant.

1. Woody Allen has never been a father to children that Mia Farrow adopted with Previn (and, btw with Allen too). They never lived together.

2. About his “pedophilia”. Come on, she was about 20 when she started relationships with Allen.

3. By the way, Mia F. herself was about 20 when she married Sinatra. And Sinatra was about 50 at the time. Funny, isn’t it?

4. Farrow so many times repeated how ungrateful had been Soon-Yi. That she took her from orphanage in Korea and so on. Did she adopt all those dozen (or how many?) children just to be THANKED for?…

5. Allen’s father died when he was 100 years old, mother – at 96. It’s obviouse, Allen will live long enough to raise those children with that “young” woman.

i’m from poland too, i admire him but he disgust me too

“how much longer can you harp on something”

with things like pedophilia and murder, there should be NO statute of limitations.

“What he did is no more disturbing than Roman Polanski who drugged and raped a 14 year old girl”

ummm…ya, exactly. they should both be in jail. both situations involve rape (statutory rape when soon yi was 16).

are you seriously trying to downplay this??? my God. how desensitized we’ve become to appalling immorality.

i was at this concert in Sala Kongresowa. it was truly amazing.

pozdrowienia dla *****ów czytających justjared.com (Greetings for all Polish people reading justjared.com). ;))

These children are also adopted right? I would think a man that old with a questionable past would not be allowed to adopt by any agency so they must have paid some woman by private adoption to give them her child. Surely there are better parents out there then these two.

Thanks Heather! My thoughts exactly!

OMG, you people are as sick as he is. Naked photos were found of Soon Yi that he had taken when she was 16 and it most likely started when she was much younger than that. He WAS too her father figure.

If I were Soon Yi I certainly wouldn’t allow him to be alone with their children.

He’s a sick pedo and for you people to say “get over it already” are pathetic.

Give me a break @ 12/29/2008 at 10:51 am

Edie & Maya: I totally agree with you. It is weird but people need to get over it. They have been together for a long time and it seems that they are happily married so we should leave this family alone. The kids are beautiful btw.

Woody Allen is nothing but ordinary anyways so we cannot expect ordinary from him. He is extra ordinary. He did not do anything illegal otherwise he would have been in jail or legally charged with something so what is the fuss?

People should not impose their personal morals to others. Media likes to exagerrate stories and inflame feelings so that they can sell stories.

And yes this woman is no longer “young.”

me is Polish too :P
I saw a looooooooooot of people outside Sala Kongresowa yesterday ^^

I will always have disgust for that man, for what he did to Mia.

Mia found that disgusting man with photos of her naked TEEN-AGE daughter.

Soon-yi was the child of Woody’s then girlfriend Mia.
Woody was the father of two of Mia’s children.

ANYONE WHO DOES NOT FIND THIS DISTURBING, DISGUSTING AND CRIMINAL, IS A SEX PERVERT THEMSELVES.!

Here is the reality: How would any of you like it if your husband decided to marry on e of the kids you adopted? Even if those kids were not his adopted kids? Woody Allen disturbed the family for his own kids because their mother’s adopted daughter – their sister – is now married to their father. How can that be normal for kids? How can they understand boundaries of family with stuff like that? Woody Allen is a renowned director who could have any woman yet he chooses to marry the adopted daughter of his ex wife? The sister to his own children? Come on. That is disturbing any way you look at it. ANd Soon Yi is truly one of the most unattractive people I have ever seen. So clearly it was not for her looks> She is hideous. it is a creepy control thing and it is disturbing.

A realist: I could not agree with you more – I would be truly worried about anyone who thinks this is ok and I would have them as far from young children as possible because clearly that person things anything goes!
