Woody Allen Thought He Was Probably Just Gonna Fuck Soon-Yi a Few Times.

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.The usually reticent 79-year-old director opened up about his much-debated relationship with Previn — his ex-girlfriend’s adopted daughter, who is 35 years younger than him — as well as his insecurities and “sensible” life in a one-on-one with NPR on Wednesday. The prolific “Annie Hall” director admitted he thought the relationship with his former lover and actress Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter was “ridiculous” when it started budding in 1991. “I’ve been married now for 20 years and it’s been good,” he told NPR’s film critic Sam Fragoso. “Somehow, through no fault of mine or hers, the dynamic worked.” “She deferred to me, and I was happy to give her an enormous amount of decision making just as a gift and let her take charge of so many things,” he added. “She flourished.

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. 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?
