That theory made headlines in 2013 when Farrow was asked by Vanity Fair if Sinatra could have been her son’s father. Her response was “possibly.”
But Oppedisano isn’t buying it.
“There’s been a lot of gossip about Frank possibly being Ronan’s biological father,” 彼が書きました, as quoted by People. “Rumors I believe I’m in a position to tamp down.”
He alleged that Sinatra’s health issues would have made it nearly impossible. He pointed out that in late 1986, Sinatra had emergency diverticulitis, which caused him “to wear a colostomy bag until he fully recovered.”
Ronan was born on December 19, 1987.
“There are only two ways Frank could have fathered Ronan, both absurd,” 彼が書きました. “Either Mia made a secret trip to shack up with Frank in his California home with [fourth wife] Barbara present, or Frank, wearing his always romantic colostomy bag, made a quick trip to Connecticut between his Atlantic City performances.”
“If Ronan had been Frank’s son, Frank would have acknowledged him,” Oppedisano added.
As for the physical resemblance between the two, the author isn’t fazed by that either.
“People say, ‘Take a look at [Ronan]’ and I say, '上手, take a look at Mia at the same age,’” 彼が書きました. “They look like twins. I’ve got blue eyes too and I’m not Frank’s son.”
それでも, Oppedisano noted that Sinatra and Farrow remained friends, alleging he arranged a private visit in 1992 between the two at the Waldorf Astoria.
“When she was beginning to have problems with Woody [Allen] she was looking for some comfort and it was like two old friends catching up,” 彼は言った. “She was devastated and he was there to support her.”
に 2013, Ronan described the rumor as “hilarious.”
“ええと, that story has been out there for years,” the 33-year-old told Vulture 当時の. “It was somewhat surprising to see it break in such a huge way of late… I appreciate how hilarious it is.”
“というのは, it’s a ridiculous situation,” 彼は続けた. “That said, I’m pretty unfazed by it in substance because it’s been out there both publicly and privately for so long. I have a relationship that I’m very happy with, ええと, with all parties involved. 私のために, the imperative is, 大丈夫, we’ve talked about it, I get a kick out of it, everyone gets a kick out of it.”
Woody Allen also cast some doubt in the theory.
“私の考えでは, he’s my child,” the 85-year-old told New York Magazine に 2018. “彼は, but I wouldn’t bet my life on it.”
