Icon97 Barbara Sinatra: Mia Farrow's son isn't Frank's

Rumors that Mia Farrow's son was fathered by the late Frank Sinatra is "a phony deal," Sinatra's widow, Barbara Sinatra, said.

Farrow, who was married to Sinatra for 18 months from July 1966, revealed to Vanity Fair in the magazine's November issue that the son she had while married to Woody Allen was "possibly" Sinatra's.

I have to say, he sure as heck looks more like ol' Blue Eyes than like Woody.

Nancy Sinatra's quote was interesting. And Ronan's tweet made me giggle, although I'm pretty sure about half of us can't possibly be Frank Sinatra's son.

I liked the two photos on the video still at the top of this BBC article, which the BBC tactfully didn't comment on in any way (at least not in writing, I haven't watched the video. OK, they do comment in the video. It would be funnier if they hadn't.).

They could have put Woody Allen on the other side but perhaps that would have started to look even more pointed...

I said to myself, "Well, he doesn't look that different from Woody Guthrie... But what's the connection between... Oh, Mia Farrow. Oh, that Woody!" I guess my mind just connected singer with singer. (I didn't think of Toy Story. Which would have been really weird.)

He looks so much like his mother I can't really see any resemblance to Frank or Woody.

Here's a juxtaposition of two photos: Sinatra & Mia Farrow back in the day, and Ronan & Mia Farrow today.
