Woody Allen Details “Paternal” Dynamic With Much Younger Wife Soon-Yi.

and ‘s relationship has long been the subject of controversy and public interest, and one that Allen himself has kept largely quiet about. Director Woody Allen rarely speaks about his relationship with his wife, Soon-Yi Previn, but he did this week, telling NPR that “she responded to someone paternal.” Previn is Mia Farrow’s adoptive daughter, and she and Allen met when he was dating Farrow.In a new interview with NPR in anticipation of his 3,000th film about a young woman falling for an old man, Woody Allen talked about why his alleged sexual abuse of his daughter hasn’t affected his movies and the genesis of his marriage to Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his ex-partner* Mia Farrow, who first met Allen when she was 10. He said the romance has no bearing “whatsoever” on his application for custody of the son he and Farrow had together and the two children they adopted.

Allen’s proclamation of love came as Connecticut State Police confirmed last night that they are investigating Allen, but they declined to reveal the nature of the inquiry. In his response, Allen notes that their relationship worked because they both liked that he was “paternal,” which is… a weird thing to say about a romantic relationship between stepfather and stepdaughter.

You always hear from people, ‘Well, if you want to have a good relationship you have to work at it.’ But there’s nothing else in your life that you really love and enjoy that you have to work at… The basic attitude of “Annie Hall” is that “love fades.” “I lucked out in my last relationship,” Allen told Sam Fragoso. “I’ve been married now for 20 years, and it’s been good. Sources close to the movie couple said their relationship soured over the past two years but was dealt a fatal blow seven months ago when Allen became romantically involved with Previn. “It’s a relationship between two consenting adults,” said the second source, adding that Allen and Previn are not living together and that marriage is not on the agenda. It was just a good-luck thing.” Allen seems to contradict the wishes of his wife and the way she’d like to be seen, though it’s hard to say because she hasn’t spoken publicly on the matter nearly as much as Allen or Farrow. I admit it’s offbeat, but let’s not get hysterical.” Allen told NPR he didn’t think the relationship would amount to much, which seems almost counter-intuitive, given the scandal that initially surrounded it and continues to follow him.

He and Roman Polanski are members of a club that is dubious at best, known as auteurs who have escaped any real consequences for their actions despite being accused of sexual abuse toward underage girls. The separation between church and state, artists and their personal lives — do you think the allegations [that you sexually abused your adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow,] have affected how people approach your movies?

In 1992, Previn attempted to explain the relationship and its appeal for her. “I have a terrific relationship with Woody and realize it’s full of dramatic overtones, but it’s really quite simple,” she wrote. “It revolves around conversations, film talk, sports talk, books and art.
