Mia Farrow Net Worth: Mia Farrow is an American actress, singer, humanitarian, and former fashion model who has a net worth of $10 million. Today, Farrow is recognized as one of the most influential people in the world. She has won a number of awards for her acting performances, including a Golden Globe. She has also been nominated for three BAFTA Awards. Outside of her acting career, Mia has been heavily involved in various philanthropic organizations and is a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. Her humanitarian work has taken her to nations such as Darfur, Chad and the Central African Republic.
After gaining recognition as a model during her teenage years, Mia broke through with a key role in the soap opera “Peyton Place” in the mid-60s. She then appeared in various films, including Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby. This role put her on the map and she won various awards and honors. After a series of additional film roles, Farrow ventured into stage work and became the first American in history to join the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Farrow is known for several high-profile relationships with celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and Woody Allen. After starting a relationship with Allen, Mia starred in many of his films. In the modern era, Farrow is best known for appearing in films such as ‘The Omen’, ‘Be Kind Rewind’ and ‘Dark Horse’. She also booked a recurring role on the show “Third Watch” in the early 2000s.
Despite her incredible success, Mia’s career has not been without controversy. Both Farrow and Mia brought accusations against each other as their relationship soured, with Farrow accusing Allen of sexually abusing her adopted daughter. These allegations were never proven, and Mia herself faced allegations of abuse.
Early Life: Maria de Lourdes Villiers Farrow was born on February 9, 1945 in Los Angeles, California. Raised alongside two film director brothers and an actress, Farrow grew up in a strict Catholic household. By the age of two, she was already appearing in films.
After moving to Spain while her father was directing a film, she was sent to a boarding school in England. The family then lived in London, and Farrow eventually returned to the United States at the age of 16. By the time she was 17, her father died and Mia tried to support her family by working as a fashion model.
Career: Farrow began her career in the mid-1960s with several television and film roles. Her real breakthrough came with the movie “Rosemary’s Baby,” which is considered one of the best horror movies ever made. The role helped launch Mia’s career in a serious way. By the 70s, she had shifted her focus to mostly theatrical roles. In the 1980s, her career was dominated by collaborations with her partner Woody Allen and she appeared in many of his films. After leaving Allen, Mia focused more on raising her children and ventured back into stage work. Since the 2000s, Mia has continued to appear in various films, stage productions and television series.
Relations: Mia’s first major relationship was with Frank Sinatra. It was an interesting match, to say the least. Sinatra was 50, while Farrow was only 21. Farrow married Sinatra in 1966. The pair argued over Farrow’s career, as Frank wanted her to give up acting. The pair eventually broke up after Mia appeared in “Rosemary’s Baby”. However, the two remained friends, and Mia even stated that they continued to have a sexual relationship more than a decade after the divorce.
In 1970, Mia married Andre Previn, composer and conductor. Once again, there was a significant age difference; Previn was 41 and Farrow was 25. As soon as Mia became pregnant, Previn divorced her. Farrow later gave birth to twins, and her divorce from Andre was finalized by 1979.
In 1980, Farrow began a relationship with Woody Allen, the famous film director. On this relationship of theirs, Mia starred in 13 of his films. The relationship ended when Woody Allen began a sexual relationship in 1992 with one of Farrow’s adopted daughters, Soon-Yi.
Controversies: While the So-Yi controversy was certainly significant, a far more shocking controversy were the child abuse allegations made against both Mia Farrow and Woody Allen. Woody Allen initially faced allegations of sexual abuse after allegedly touching Dylan, the couple’s adopted daughter, who was seven at the time of the incident.
The alleged incident occurred in 1992 when Woody visited Farrow’s residence while she was shopping. Two of the women hired to look after the children claimed that Dylan’s underwear was missing and that she had been missing for a long time while Woody was visiting. Dylan herself claimed that Allen touched her in her private area.
In 1993, legal action was taken against Woody Allen. Although the evidence was insufficient to convict him of child abuse, his parental rights were terminated and his request for full custody was denied. A state attorney later argued that he could have pursued the matter with molestation charges against Allen, but chose to step back after becoming concerned about how it would traumatize Dylan.
Later, Mia’s other adopted child, Moses Farrow, publicly stated that the children were “indoctrinated” to believe that Allen was guilty of sexually abusing Dylan. Dylan herself later came forward in 2014 and stated that she had indeed been abused by Allen. Woody then repeatedly denied the allegations against him and was supported by Moses and Soon-Yi.
Mia herself has been accused of physically and emotionally abusing her children, particularly by Moses and Soon-Yi. Soon-Yi claimed she was prone to “tantrums” that terrified the children. She also stated that Mia was violent with her. Moses stated that he personally saw his brothers (some of whom were disabled) being dragged down stairs and thrown into closets. Moise also claims that Mia “brainwashed” him.
