Bacon also found out he's Brad Pitt's thirteenth cousin, while Sedgwick is Marilyn Monroe's eight cousin (apparently, there's a "skirt malfunction" gene). They both turned out to have a surprising number of presidential connections, too: Bacon has a common ancestor with Barack Obama and Sedgwick is distantly related to Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter. Wow, with such distinguished pedigree, we wouldn't be surprised if some generations from now, our 60th or so president is a five-armed Bacon-Sedgwick abomination.
Preeeetty Sure Ronan Farrow Is Frank Sinatra's Son, Not Woody Allen's
Ronan Farrow is the journalist who blew the lid on the Harvey Weinstein scandal, but, unfortunately, that wasn't his first exposure to creepy Hollywood perverts. Farrow first gained public prominence as a kid when his parents, Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, had a falling out over the small matter of Allen sleeping with Ronan's 20-year-old sister, Soon-Yi. But, as Ronan grew up, people started noticing that the dashing young lad looked nothing like dweeby-ass Woody Allen ... and everything like a young Frank Sinatra.
That's not as random as it sounds: Mia Farrow was married to Sinatra in the '60s, when she was 21 and he 51. In 2013 she claimed that they "never really split up" (a fancy way of saying they were each other's booty call) and acknowledged that Ronan was "possibly" his son. Ronan himself has mostly remained mum on the subject, despite Bill Maher's constant badgering, but he did once tweet the following:
TwitterWe'll find out if he's Woody's kid if he starts doing the same joke but slightly unfunnier every year.
Meanwhile, as of 2018 Allen still considered Ronan his son, but he didn't sound very convinced: "In my opinion, he's my child. I think he is, but I wouldn't bet my life on it." (We're guessing someone showed him the pictures between sentences.) Mostly, he's just bitter about having possibly paid child support for a best-selling musical artist's offspring, and the possibility that Mia cheated on him. Yeah, sleeping with someone with a significant age difference while they were together? Who would do such a thing?
