Mia Farrow Biography
Mia Farrow, an American actress, born Maria de Lourdes Villiers Farrow but always known as Mia, February 9, 1945 in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of director John Farrow (1904-1963) and his wife Maureen O'Sullivan (1911-1998), the actress who played "Jane" to Johnny Weissmuller's Tarzan.

She married Frank Sinatra on July 19, 1966. While working on the film "Rosemary's Baby" with director Roman Polanski, Frank served her divorce papers in front of the cast and crew. The divorce came as a surprise to Mia, who did not even know Frank was thinking of leaving her. They divorced in 1968.

She married André Previn in 1970. They had three biological children (Matthew, Sascha, and Fletcher) together and adopted three children, Soon Yi, Lark Song, and Daisy. They divorced in 1979.

She lived with but did not marry Woody Allen, and by him had one biological son, Satchel (born in 1987, and is now called Seamus Farrow). They also adopted a son and daughter together. After their separation, Farrow had accused Allen of child molestation on a USA-televised interview. She claimed to having witnessed Allen abusing one of their youngest adopted children. Allen became infamously tainted for a time afterward, having somewhat confirmed Farrow's accusations by his open relationship with one of her adopted teenage daughters, Soon Yi Previn.

She continued to adopt children as a sole parent, is active in agencies that encourage adoptions, and is a UNICEF Special Representative. By 1994, Mia Farrow had 14 children, 9 of them adopted. 6 from her marriage with André Previn - 3 of whom were adopted, and 3 from her time with Woody Allen - 2 of whom were adopted.

Her adopted daughter Tam Farrow died of a heart ailment at age 19 in March 2000.

Mia Farrow became friends with Roman Polanski and his wife Sharon Tate while filming "Rosemary's Baby".
Woody Allen had an affair with Mia's adopted daughter Soon Yi, and Mia accused him of molesting one of her other children. Woody is now married to Soon Yi, and has adopted two children with her.
Her son Seamus was enrolled at Simon's Rock College at 11 years of age. He has not spoken to or seen his father since he was 7, and is said to have a phobia of him. He reportedly does not see him as his father, just as a man who had an affair with his sister.
