In the sexual creepiness level, Woody Allen falls somewhere between Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski. Woody Allen is married to Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his former Partner/Lover Mia Farrow (Farrow and Allen never married). According to Wikipedia, Allen began a relationship with Previn while he was still in a relationship with Previn’s mother.
In a recent interview , Allen explained the key to their relationship:
“I’m 35 years older, and somehow, through no fault of mine or hers, the dynamic worked. I was paternal. She responded to someone paternal. I liked her youth and energy. 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.”
(For the record, I truly enjoy watching most Woody Allen movies, though it has come come to the point that if I start watching one of them in the middle, I can’t tell which one I’m watching. But when you think of it, since they’re all the same, it doesn’t really matter.)
