Ronan Farrow May Be Sinatra's Son, But That's The Least Cool Thing About Him

The resemblance is striking. The timeframe is right. So, could Ronan Farrow be the illegitimate son of Frank Sinatra? That's the question that popped up during a Vanity Fair interview with Mia Farrow and her children. When asked directly if Ronan, her son with Woody Allen, might actually have been fathered by Ol' Blue Eyes, Farrow responded, "Possibly." Way to play coy, Mia.

In response to a flurry of reports about his mother's comment yesterday, the 25-year-old Farrow tweeted a hint. "Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son." Way to play it coy, Ronan.
But, who really cares if he is the son of Frank Sinatra? As far as celebrity children go, he's not your typical fame-sucking hanger-on or paparazzi-dodging recluse. Of the eight Farrow brood, Ronan is perhaps the only one who hasn't shied away from the limelight, but all in the name of good. He's a journalist, a lawyer, and a human rights activist who's worked for the Obama Administration as the founder and special advisor for the State Department Office of Global Youth Issues. In his work for the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, and Foreign Policy, he focuses on human rights abuses in the Horn of Africa. He was accepted to Yale Law School at the age of 15, but deferred his admission until 2006 in order to work for UNICEF and the former U.S. Ambassador, Richard Holbrooke. Oh, and then he became a Rhodes scholar.
He is also an outspoken critic of the UN's political bodies, has forged relationships with NGOs in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and vehemently defended his former colleagues at the Benghazi diplomatic mission after it was attacked in 2012. Now he's in talks to host his own MSNBC show aimed at getting Millennials more engaged with political affairs. And, as though his resume wasn't scary-awesome-to-the-point-of-being-depressing-for-the-rest-of-us, he's also a dreamboat.
As for the Frank Sinatra part? That's just icing on the Sexy Foreign Policy Specialist cake. (Examiner)
