Ronan Farrow On Frank Sinatra Paternity Rumors: “I Appreciate How Hilarious It Is”

“You know, I wasn’t there, so I don’t have a lot more to offer than you. Of course, it is a distraction … But I take it in stride. Look, we all have, you know, our family histories to bear … so … You know, that story has been out there for years. It was somewhat surprising to see it break in such a huge way of late. I’m fairly … I mean, I appreciate how hilarious it is. I mean, it’s a ridiculous situation. That said, I’m pretty unfazed by it in substance, because it’s been out there both publicly and privately for so long. You know, I have a relationship that I’m very happy with, you know, with all parties involved. For me, the imperative is ‘all right, we’ve talked about it, I get a kick out of it, everyone gets a kick out of it. Let’s move onto the substance,’ — which is one reason I’m so excited to be rolling out [his new show on MSBNC]. … Look, I grew up in a family with ten adopted siblings, so you know, if anything, I consider it an insult to them to obsess too much over the question of genetic provenance.”

Here’s soon-to-be-MSNBC host Ronan Farrow‘s game response to a tenacious reporter from New York magazine looking for a scoop straight from the horse’s mouth. To great hullaballoo, Ronan’s mother Mia Farrow recently told Vanity Fair that it is possible that Frank Sinatra is her son’s biological father instead of Woody Allen. (Ronan responded by tweeting, “Listen, we’re all *possibly* Frank Sinatra’s son.” ) I give Ronan credit for having a sense of humor about his sperm donor and also his attitude about the unimportance of “genetic provenance.” That reminds me of something I wrote back when the tabloids (and, um, her mom) were trying to make Khloe Kardashian’s biological parentage a thing: family is family. Obsessing over who is the “real” sister or “real” father is actually kind of offensive. Kudos to Ronan for agreeing. [NYMag.com] [Image via Getty]

Marilyn Monroe’s Secret Stash

What’s a woman who has been dead for over 40 years doing on the cover of this month’s Vanity Fair? Well, when the lady in question is Marilyn Monroe, it’s no wonder the ultimate sex symbol is still making it as a cover girl from the grave. Her case has been reopened — or rather, her filing cabinets.
