"A person who has no allegiance to truth will do anything. A person who will do anything is somebody to be scared of," Farrow said talking of Allen
Mia Farrow expressed that she is "scared" of Woody Allen almost 30 years after their split. In the 'explosive' new HBO docuseries, Allen v. Farrow., the 76-year-old actress says she doesn't rest easy knowing Allen could act against the documentary. "A person who has no allegiance to truth will do anything. A person who will do anything is somebody to be scared of. So I worry that when this documentary comes out, he'll be on the attack again. He'll do whatever he has to do to try to save himself from the truth, from the mess he made," she said, according to People.
"The docuseries, which will air in four separate parts on HBO, will show the happy times Allen and Mia spent together as their careers skyrocketed in the '70s before getting to Allen's revelation of his affair with one of Mia's adopted daughters, Soon-Yi Previn, who he'd later go on to marry," People reported. Dylan Farrow, the couple's adopted daughter who accused Allen of sexually abusing her as a child, will feature prominently in the series. Allen has long denied the allegations which were first reported during his split with the actress in 1992.
The docuseries alleges that Allen may have begun his relationship with Soon-Yi as early as her senior year of high school. This claim is backed by court testimonies from his doorman, building manager, and housekeeper at the time. According to the testimonies, Soon-Yi had frequently visited the director at his apartment. In 1992, Mia found naked pictures of Soon-Yi in Allen's apartment which led to the end of their relationship. "I remember my mom told me and Ronan, 'Daddy took naked pictures of Soon-Yi.' And that was sort of the first instance where I thought, 'Oh… it's not just me," Dylan recalls in the series.
The news of the split was all over media at the time and when Dylan accused her father of sexual abuse, Allen claimed that Mia had "coached" her to do so for revenge. Both Mia and Dylan will be seen denying those allegations and explaining what had happened, in the docuseries. Allen and Soon-Yi who are still married and share two daughters together did not participate in the series. "If I could take it all back, I would," says Mia while talking about her relationship with Allen. "I wish I'd never met him. That's my great regret of my life, to bring somebody like that who should never have been in the family," she further said, according to People.
