Mia Farrow claimed that letting Woody Allen into her family is her biggest regret in last night Allen v. Farrow docuseries.

The project aired in the US on Sunday evening and explored the ongoing allegations that Woody sexually abused his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was a child – which he denied.

The 76-year-old actress reflected on her relationship with the 85-year-old director as she stated: ‘That’s the great regret of my life, that I wasn’t perceptive enough. It’s my fault.

‘I brought this guy into my family. There’s nothing I can do to take that away. I get why people can’t believe it because who on Earth could believe that of Woody Allen?’

She continued: ‘I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe it. Everybody admired Woody so much, loved him, and I did too.’



The Annie Hall director has long denied the allegations of child abuse, which were first reported during his 1992 split from the actress.

Woody was not charged, though a Connecticut prosecutor said there was probable cause for a criminal case.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker has vehemently denied the allegations made in the docuseries, branding the project as a ‘hatchet job’ and a ‘shoddy hit piece’.

In response to the serious claims made in the first episode of the four-part series, the Blue Jasmine director released a joint statement with his wife Soon-Yi Previn condemning the documentary. 

‘These documentarians had no interest in the truth,’ they said in the statement released to The Hollywood Reporter

It continued: ‘Instead, they spent years surreptitiously collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers to put together a hatchet job riddled with falsehoods. 

‘As has been known for decades, these allegations are categorically false. Multiple agencies investigated them at the time and found that, whatever Dylan Farrow may have been led to believe, absolutely no abuse had ever taken place. 

‘It is sadly unsurprising that the network to air this is HBO – which has a standing production deal and business relationship with Ronan Farrow. While this shoddy hit piece may gain attention, it does not change the facts.’ 

The Midnight in Paris director and Previn, 50, were reportedly approached by producers less than two months ago and claim they were only given ‘two days to respond’. 

They declined to do so but producer Amy Herdy told Variety that she had reached out as early as June 2018. 



Dylan appears in the documentary alongside her brother Ronan and their mother, who was married to the filmmaker between 1980 and 1992. 

Dylan has accused Woody of sexually abusing her in August 1992 when she was just seven years old. 

Woody and his wife married in 1997 and share two children; Bechet and Manzie.
