When it comes to looks, blue-eyed Ronan Farrow, 28, does look more like Frank Sinatra than Woody Allen, but when it comes to BRAINS, we think he’s definitely Woody’s son. It’s too bad Rhodes Scholar Ronan is estranged from his father Woody because Woody might be able to help him make a success of his MSNBC show. As it stands, the show, Ronan Farrow Daily, has not caught on with viewers and ratings are dismal. Only 312,000 people watched Ronan last Wednesday and most of them were over 50! A rerun of The Golden Girls did better. Sometimes being smart and articulate is just not enough.
Woody Allen has to be filled with regret when he thinks about his estranged son – and only biological child- with Mia Farrow. Ronan Farrow, 23, changed his name from Satchel and chose not to associate with his father after Woody married his sister Soon-Yi. It so happens Ronan inherited brains from both parents and was a child prodigy. At the age of 11 Ronan went to Bard College and at 16 was accepted to Yale Law School. He’s a humanitarian and activist at the UN working for UNICEF. Yesterday he was honored with a Rhodes Scholarship and will continue his education at Oxford. And he’s GOOD LOOKING! Woody really missed out on this one.
