In the October issue of Vanity Fair, Maureen Orth talks to actress Mia Farrow about her humanitarian work, her family, her former lovers, and the scandalous end to her relationship with former partner, Woody Allen. Orth asks Farrow point-blank, about a long-circulating rumor about the paternity of her son, Ronan Farrow, who was always identified as the only biological child of Farrow and Allen: Could Ronan be Frank Sinatra's biological son? "Possibly," responded Farrow.
Ronan Farrow responded to the hubbub over his paternity on Twitter:
No, no, no! With all due respect to Ronan Farrow, a former child prodigy who began college at 11, graduated from Yale Law School, attended Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship, and has served in the Obama administration, we are all not *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son. That's not to say that some family relationships aren't in question. For instance, Nick Jonas is *possibly* the second cousin once removed of President Franklin Pierce (aka friendly Frank Pierce, alcoholic from New Hampshire):
Teresa Giudice is *possibly* Adrian Grenier's paternal aunt:
Chipper Jones is *possibly* my grandfather's much-younger brother:
Goldie Hawn is *possibly* the offspring of Big Bird and Bette Davis:
Nathan Lane is *possibly* the six-times great-grandnephew of founding father Benjamin Franklin:
Mama June is *possibly* the long-lost daughter of Boss Hogg:
Jon Cryer and Matthew Broderick were *possibly* the same person in the 1980s:
Leighton Meester and Lyla Garrity (oh, fine, Minka Kelly) are *possibly* the same person today:
I am *possibly* the product of the unholy union between the Long Island Medium and a particularly handsome alpaca:
And, well, fine, Ronan Farrow is *possibly* the love child of a famous singer:
We just don't know who!
