In 2008, Time magazine named her one of the most influential people in the world.

Biography

Marriage to Frank Sinatra

On July 19, 1966, Farrow married singer Frank Sinatra at the Las Vegas home of Jack Entratter. Farrow was 21 years old at the time while Sinatra was 51. Sinatra wanted Farrow to give up her acting career which she initially agreed to do. She accompanied Sinatra while he was shooting several films but soon tired of doing nothing and signed on to star in Rosemary's Baby. Filming for Rosemary's Baby ran over its initial estimated filming schedule which angered Sinatra who had cast Farrow in a role in his film The Detective. After Farrow failed to report for filming, Sinatra cast actress Jacqueline Bisset in Farrow's role. In November 1967, while Farrow was filming Rosemary's Baby, Sinatra's lawyer served her with divorce papers. Their divorce was finalized in August 1968. Farrow later blamed the demise of the marriage on their age difference and stated that she was an "impossibly immature teenager" when she married Sinatra. The two remained friends until Sinatra's death.


Visit to Ashram
In February 1968, Farrow traveled to India, where she spent part of the year at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, studying Transcendental Meditation. Her visit received worldwide media attention because of the presence of all four members of The Beatles, Donovan, and Mike Love, as well as her sister Prudence Farrow, who inspired John Lennon to write the song "Dear Prudence".


Marriage to André Previn
On September 10, 1970, Farrow married conductor and composer André Previn in London. At the time of their marriage, Farrow was pregnant with twin boys. Farrow had begun a relationship with Previn while he was still married to his second wife songwriter Dory Previn. When Farrow became pregnant, Previn left Dory and filed for divorce. Their divorce became final in July 1970. Dory Previn later wrote a scathing song, entitled "Beware of Young Girls", about the loss of her husband to Farrow. Previn and Farrow divorced in 1979.


Relationship with Woody Allen
In 1979, Farrow began a relationship with film director Woody Allen. During their relationship, Farrow starred in 13 of Allen's films, and several of her relatives also made appearances. Their relationship ended when Allen began a romantic relationship with Soon-Yi, the 21-year-old adopted daughter of Farrow.


Children
As of February 2014, Mia Farrow has thirteen living children (four biological, nine adopted), including her adopted daughter Soon-Yi from whom she is estranged, and ten grandchildren. Two of her adopted children, Tam and Lark, have predeceased her.

Farrow and former husband André Previn have three biological children (twins Matthew and Sascha (born February 26, 1970) and Fletcher (born March 14, 1974)). In 1973 and 1976, respectively, they adopted Vietnamese infants, Lark Song Previn and Summer "Daisy" Song Previn (both born October 6, 1974), followed by the adoption of Soon-Yi (born c. October 8, 1972) from Korea around 1978. Soon-Yi's precise age and birth date are not known, but a bone scan estimated her age as being between 5 and 7 years old at the time of her adoption.

Farrow adopted Moses "Misha" Farrow (born January 27, 1978, adopted 1980), and Dylan Farrow (born July 11, 1985). Dylan was known as "Eliza" for a while and also as "Malone". In December 1991 a New York City court allowed Woody Allen to co-adopt Dylan and Moses.

On December 19, 1987, Farrow gave birth to their son Satchel O'Sullivan Farrow, later known as Ronan Farrow. In a 2013 interview with Vanity Fair, Farrow stated Ronan could "possibly" be the biological child of her first husband Frank Sinatra, with whom she claimed to have "never really split up".

In 1992, Mia alleged that Dylan Farrow, then aged seven, had told her she had been sexually abused by Allen. In August 1992, Allen sued for full custody of his and Farrow's three children, claiming that Farrow was concocting the sexual abuse allegations.

The head doctor of the police-appointed medical team gave sworn testimony via a deposition that Dylan "either invented the story under the stress of living in a volatile and unhealthy home or that it was planted in her mind by her mother" because of the "inconsistent" presentation of the story by Dylan. The doctor did not meet with Dylan prior to giving his testimony and delivered his findings based on first-hand accounts of the incident. Justice Elliot Wilk, who rejected Allen's bid for full custody and denied him visitation rights with Dylan, wrote: "I am less certain, however, than is the Yale-New Haven team, that the evidence proves conclusively that there was no sexual abuse."
In February 2014, Dylan Farrow publicly renewed her claims of sexual abuse against Allen, in an open letter published by Nicholas Kristof, a friend of Farrow, in his New York Times blog. Allen repeated his denial of the allegations.

Following the new allegations, Moses Farrow claimed Mia had been the one responsible for mistreatment, claiming she had physically abused him.

Between 1992 and 1995, Farrow adopted five more children: Tam Farrow (born c. 1981 – died 2000); Kaeli-Shea Farrow, now known as Quincy Maureen Farrow; Frankie-Minh (born 1989); Isaiah Justus (born 1992); Gabriel Wilk Farrow (born 1988; adopted 1995), now known as Thaddeus Wilk Farrow and named after Elliott Wilk, the judge who oversaw Farrow's 1993 legal battle with Allen. Tam Farrow died of heart failure in 2000 at the age of 19 after a long illness. On December 25, 2008, Lark Previn died at the age of 35.

In 1963, protagonist Arthur stays with his grandparents for the holidays, during which the Bogo Matassalai (a fictitious African society) assign Arthur a series of tests including camouflage and environmental nonviolence. Having passed these tests, Arthur prepares to see the Minimoys to celebrate, until his father decides to take him and his mother back to the metropolis. When a spider gives Arthur a grain of rice containing a distress-call, which he believes has come from the Minimoys, he returns to his grandparents' house, where the Bogo Matassalai's attempt to give him Minimoy stature through a telescope fails, and they instead wrap him in vines of increasing tightness until he falls in a drop of sap into the Minimoy Max's bar. En route to investigate the Minimoys' condition, Arthur and Max rescue Betameche, who leads Arthur to the King. He then learns that Selenia is held by Maltazard, who is inspired to invade the human world by increasing his own size. Maltazard tricks the Minimoys into completing this design. The telescope itself is destroyed in the process, leaving Arthur trapped at his Minimoy size.

In Passaic, New Jersey, the declining "Be Kind Rewind" VHS rental store owned by Mr. Fletcher (Danny Glover) is due to be demolished to make way for high-end development (due in large part to the refusal of Mr. Fletcher to rent out DVDs) unless he can find the money to renovate his building, despite his claims that jazz pianist Fats Waller was born in that building. Mr. Fletcher leaves on a trip for several days to join friends and memorialize Waller, leaving his only employee, Mike (Mos Def), to tend to the store. Before leaving Mr. Fletcher cautions Mike to keep his paranoid and klutzy friend, Jerry (Jack Black), away from the store. After attempting to sabotage a nearby electrical substation, believing its energy to be melting his brain, Jerry becomes magnetized, and when he enters the store the next day, he inadvertently erases all the VHS tapes in the store (as well as making the camera go out of focus, whenever he walks past it). Mike quickly discovers the disaster, and is further pressed when Miss Falewicz (Mia Farrow), Mr. Fletcher's friend, wants to rent Ghostbusters. To prevent her from reporting a problem to Mr. Fletcher, Mike comes up with an idea: as Miss Falewicz has never seen the movie, he proposes to recreate the film using himself and Jerry as the actors and cheap special effects hoping to fool her. They complete the movie just in time when another customer asks for Rush Hour 2. Mike and Jerry repeat their filming, enlisting the help of Alma (Melonie Diaz), a local woman, for some of the parts.
