Ronan Farrow throws some Father’s Day chin music

Print Email
Ronan Farrow(Wikipedia)

Last we caught up with Ronan Farrow—son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow—he was busy becoming the subject of arguably the greatest Scroll post of all-time. Okay, he was also being awarded a Rhodes Scholarship after having graduated college at 15, Yale Law School at 21, and having done some seriously impressive humanitarian work in between writing and working for the State Department.

But the world fell in love with Ronan all over again following a tweet he sent out this weekend:

“Happy father’s day— or as they call it in my family, happy brother-in-law’s day,” Ronan tweeted Sunday.

This, of course, was a reference to his father’s infamous dalliance with Soon-Yi Previn, Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter. Mia Farrow retweeted her son’s words out into the ether, adding the comment “Boom.”

I leave to you anonymous creepers in the commentariat to give the best Woody Allen-esque reply. 140 characters or less. Winner gets a Nextbook prize.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

At least it saves him the cost of an anniversary card.

Thank you from all of me.

No one would deny Woody’s a real family man.

Woody’s from Brooklyn, but he prefers it in Asia Minor.

It’s very sweet that he’s so loyal to and protective of his mother She seems like she’s still in pain after all these years. She always struck me as a good, but fragile person…. one you would deeply regret crossing. I hope he is able to make peace with his remakable father before it’s too late. He’s the one will suffer the most if he doesn’t.
