(Newser) – In an extensive Vanity Fair interview, Mia Farrow and eight of her children offer up some intimate stories. Two getting a lot of play:

  • Might Frank Sinatra (whom Farrow calls the love of her life) have actually fathered Ronan Farrow, not Woody Allen? "Possibly," says Mia Farrow, adding that no DNA tests were done. Nancy Sinatra Jr. confirms Ronan is treated as a member of the family: "He is a big part of us, and we are blessed to have him in our lives." Ronan's amusing response on Twitter: "Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son."

  • Daughter Dylan, whom Farrow and Allen adopted, speaks publicly for the first time about the sexual abuse she allegedly suffered at Allen's hands. "There’s a lot I don’t remember, but what happened in the attic I remember. I remember what I was wearing and what I wasn’t wearing," she says. "The things making me uncomfortable were making me think I was a bad kid, because I didn’t want to do what my elder told me to do. ... I was seven. I was doing it because I was scared. I wanted it to stop." She adds, "I have never been asked to testify. If I could talk to the 7-year-old Dylan, I would tell her to be brave, to testify."
Dylan refuses to ever say Allen's name, and her brother Fletcher Previn Photoshopped the director out of all family photos and videos. As for Soon-Yi Previn, Mia Farrow's adopted daughter with Andre Previn who is now married to Allen, "She does not exist," says her father.
