On February 9 Mia Farrow was born…

On February 9, 1945 actress and former model Mia Farrow was born. She is best known for her work alongside Woody Allen (appearing in 12 of his films), as well as playing the titular character Rosemary in Roman Polanski’s 1968 film, “Rosemary’s Baby.”

Besides her film background spanning over 50 films, she is well known for her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, which has given her the honor to be named by Time magazine as one of the most influential people in the world.  

She was married to Frank Sinatra in the 1960s, in which he served her with divorce papers while working on “Rosemary’s Baby.” He apparently wanted her to quit working on the film in order to work on a film of his called “The Detective.” She also had a long term relationship with Woody Allen, which ended in a messy separation, in which Woody Allen has been accused multiple times of sexually abusing their adopted daughter. 

Farrow has 13 children, four biological and nine adopted, as well as nine grandchildren.
