Iconic filmmaker Woody Allen has been married to Soon-Yi Previn for decades, but there are some strange aspects to this coupling. Their union gives new meaning to the term "blended family," and get this: she doesn't even care for his movies! Here's everything you need to know about this odd match.
Woody Allen supposedly saw no problem dating Soon-Yi Previn, his ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter from Korea, because she wasn't a biological child and because he and Mia Farrow had never married. Farrow had adopted Soon-Yi with her boyfriend before Allen, Andre Previn.
Allen told Time,
"I am not Soon-Yi's father or stepfather. I've never even lived with Mia. I've never in my entire life slept at Mia's apartment, and I never even used to go over there until my children came along [... ] I was not a father to her adopted kids in any sense of the word. There's no downside to it. The only thing unusual is that she's Mia's daughter. But she's an adopted daughter and a grown woman. I could have met her at a party or something."
Previn echoed that rationale, telling Time:
"To think that Woody was in any way a father or stepfather to me is laughable. My parents are Andre Previn and Mia, but obviously they're not even my real parents. I came to America when I was 7. I was never remotely close to Woody."
