Ryan O'Neal Reveals True Self?!

| Filed under: Farrah FawcettTatum O'Neal


He should be grieving, not blabbing!

In the September issue of Vanity Fair, Ryan O' Neal admitted to some less-than-appropriate behavior and his "feelings" for his children.

We even get some feedback from the kids and it isn't pretty!

Here are some HIGHlights:

On making advances toward his estranged daughter, Tatum, after funeral of longtime love, Farrah Fawcett:
"I had just put the casket in the hearse and was watching it drive away when a beautiful blond woman comes up and embraces me. I said to her, 'You have a drink on you? You have a car?' She said, 'Daddy, it's me — Tatum! I was just trying to be funny with a strange Swedish woman, and it's my daughter. It's so sick."

Tatum's response:
"That's our relationship in a nutshell . . . You make of it what you will. It had been a few years since we'd seen each othe. And he was always a ladies' man, a bon vivant.

If he's sorry he had children:
"A couple of them I would take back. I don't think I was supposed to be a father. Just look around at my work — they're either in jail or they should be. I'm not in touch with them now. And I've never been happier."

On Tatum:
"She wrote a book — bitch! How dare she throw our laundry in the street for money!"

Is that anything like "throwing your laundry in the street" for Vanity Fair?!

On son, Griffin:
"I hate him!"

Griffin's response:
My father is a "narcissistic psychopath" who tried to make money off Farrah's death. "All those crocodile tears! I consider him a vulture presiding over a carcass. My dad's only goal was to make sure he would be in the will. It was so disgustingly transparent as soon as he found out she was terminal . . . Ryan thought he was going to get everything."

On Farrah:
"I wish I could do it over with [her]. I would have been much kinder, more understanding, more mature. I'd lose some of the savagery."

Kindness does sound like something he should work on!

Maybe throw in a little hypocrisy, too!!

    Slimeball Supreme. So glad she didn't put him in her will.

    seriously? what a douche!

  6. 6

    i hate everyone, and i don't think he's a douche. if you saw 10 minutes of farrah's movie (that's all i saw)- you could tell that he really loved her. as for the rest, he just sounds like a man that knows his own shortcomings. he has plenty, but as long as he doesn't pretend to be holier-than-thou, who are we to judge? griffin is an idiot…

    soundz like my date from e-hamony..

    he's a total douche, anyone with two eyes can see that. at the funeral there were pictures of him kissing a (loosely termed)lady in the limo when he thought the door was shut. you could see in farrah's face the trauma he caused her over the years. i would say, what the hell happened to her face? savage is right, her face collapsed under all the beatings, cheating, etc. she should have spared her son redmond, and now look at him. then to have a dad say, i'd take some of them back? why? b/c they are a reflection of your true soul? also, when his young daughter got nominated, she went BY HERSELF to the oscars b.c he was jealous that he didn't get nominated for paper moon. ugh, he disgusts me and i knew he'd start showing his true colors.

  16. 16

    What a vile man

  17. 17

    May he rot in HELL forever!!!!

    I had to re-read this article twice because I thought I must have misread it the first time. I've liked Ryan since his Love Story days and I've felt sorry for him occasionally because of the trouble his kids have had. However, after reading these quotes from him I'm sick to my stomach. What kind of parent says they "hate" their child? I can understand finding your child's behavior disgusting but hating your kid is really sick. As for his relationship with Farrah…now I don't know what to think. Bottom line is I've taken Ryan off my list of celebs I like.

  25. 25

    he tried to fu@k his daughter!

  26. 26

    Its one thing to not be happy with your children. But to say that you regret having them out loud and to the press. Why be so cruel? Even if thats how he privately feels think of what that does to his kids. Imagine if your father said he regretted having you. That's a disgustingly selfish comment.

    "Kindness does sound like something he should work on!" — did you REALLY say that Perezite? Really?
    That sounds like something YOU should work on.

    Just another reason that justifies how creepy redheads are.

  31. 31

    This is so sad. About his conversation with his daughter….ewwwww

  32. Wrenn says – reply to this


    I never could figure out what a woman like Farrah Fawcett saw in this fucktard. He is nothing but a bottom feeder. Too bad he wasn't the one lying in that casket.

  33. 33

    What a bastard! I would never treat my children like that, no matter how difficult or stupid they are. What a pathetic, perverted old man. And he seems to have issues handling the truth- Tatums book apparently has a lot of ugly truth and instead of being a man and facing it, he bashes her?!? Grief, makes me thankful for my family.

  34. 34


  35. 35

    Great answer Griffith…I keep saying he's a major prick and rotton father.

  36. 36

    What a horrible man, I'm thankful for my family after hearing about this mess

  37. 37

    At least he's being honest. . . wish more people were. . .

  38. 38

    OK, He didn't know it was Tatum. Also, Tatum was still hitting the pipe and wrote a book about her childhood. It was sad nothing she should have written about her family. Griffin is a douche.

  39. 39

    What a ball of self-hate! no wonder he's a douche, really.

  41. 41

    Unless your child is Hitler, you don't hate them. You may DISLIKE them, but you don't hate them. This makes me really sad b/c I had thought he'd turned his life around when he saw that Farrrah was ill. I hope the allegation's aren't true, but his own statements suggest that they are. I had a college sweetheart that I just broke up with recently and I though he was as sweet to me as Ryan was to Farrah. Oh, if only we all had 20/20 vision. It's amazing what come out of the wood work when a realationship ends. Sad, so sad.

  42. 42

    Re: steelers – Oh, that's no where NEAR the worst. In Tatum's book she recalls when she walked in on her Father and her friend in bed together. His respose? (Paraphrasing) "There's room for three in here."

  43. 43

    I cannot fathom that this guy really said this stuff. I wonder if he's going to deny it? Obviously, if he said any of this, he's a worthless piece of shit.

  44. 44

    slim scuzbag!

  45. 45

    Even if your kid's are messed up who says that kind of stuff. I think Griffin has it spot on with his comment.

  46. 46

    he probably hates Griffen because Griffen is dead on right about his dad. Creepy deatbeat who is so narcissistic that he wants to have sex with his own daughter. GROSS!!!

  47. 47

    GROW UP RYAN. Try to be older than your own kids for a change….

  48. @v@ says – reply to this


    The depth of the ill will reflects the actual tragic unfulfilled measure of love they feel. If you don't care, you're more likely to be neutral. They could all benefit from a reputable family counsellor, and shouldn't quit until they accept eachother warts and all. They are family.

  49. 49

    He is a disgusting waste of a pathetic excuse for a human being. I believe I would rather be high on drugs or in jail, too, if he was my father. He is lucky all three of his kids haven't killed themselves. No, actually that would probably make him very happy.

  50. 50

    that is seriously jaw dropping!

  51. 51

    Re: msloriga

    Believe it honey. We've all known what an asshole he was since the 70's.

  52. 52

    Ryan is a vile, horrible, disgusting human being. He is a psychopath - his children, never had a chance at a normal life - not with him as a father. Poor kids. I feel so sorry for them, you can see the pain on their faces. He didn't care about Farrah,he doesn't care about anyone but himself. I hope his children recover from the emotional abuse they have endured. Griffin, Tatum and Redmond, stay away from him - you don't need him in your life. I hope the three of you find a way to reconnect with each other.

  53. 53

    this douche is the douciest douche that ever douched. so it's really creepy that he 1) does not recognize his own daughter 2) hit on her 3) discusses it like oops how funny huh? um, no.

    not to mention the way he was super creepy when farrah was dying the way he very casually would mention her condition constantly .. you just don't do that when a loved one is dying like he did. also saying you "hate" your child. man he really is GROSS. he sucks.

  54. 54

    He's a PIG!!!!! No wonder Farrah wld never marry him, AND I'm glad she didn't leave him a dime. I had a feeling all along that he was milking the media in Farrah's last day. He was making it about him not her. PIG…PIG…PIG

  55. 55

    Re: jebjeb – is this you ryan?

  56. 56

    what gross and terrible things to say about your children. i read her book and while i'm sure some parts are exaggerated (seen through a child's eyes)…my heart goes out to her and her brother. he was a jealous, hateful man. it just shows you how horrible childhood experiences can affect children throughout their entire lives.

  57. 57

    Re: Godzilla_is_a_girl – awesome. loved your response.

  58. 58

    I always had a low opinion of him but this raises him up a LOT in my eyes. He's telling the fucking truth about what a loser he is! and of course he would "undo" the kids, why not??? I would too! I think it's hilarious and wonderful, he's not whitewashing anything! Farrah chose him (she didn't have brain two), and she procreated with someone whose record sucked, LOL…I love these comments and this interview!!! I think it's just GREAT!!!! what's wrong with hating your kid if you hate your kid? Biology doesn't dictate affection! His wife was clinically ill and he was a shitty dad, so of course his kids are basket cases. Tatum had talent but man has she struggled….and Redmond? he's doomed. He's totally doomed.

    I LOVE THIS!!!

  59. 59

    Re: jebjeb – He been a trained actor for what 40 years… Are you seriously shitting me that he wasn't playing a "Role”???

  60. 60

    Thats disgusting. how can you hate your child, no matter what he has done? what a freak of nature.

  61. 61

    What a sad fucked up family….
    I know a thing or two about narcissistic fathers.

  62. 62

    This is one sick Fuck . Jesus C to say you hate your son??? Some things should just be kept private.

  63. 63

    What a sad, sick, pathetic excuse for a father.
    No wonder Redmond is a drug-addicted prisoner.

  64. MP says – reply to this


    He's quite disgusting. I don't know why everyone deifies him, he left Farrah over 10 years ago for another woman. I can understand why his son calls him a narcissist.

  65. 65

    Ryan is the one who probably gave Farrah the HPV infection that turned into the anal cancer that killed her. So nice of him to keep running his mouth and proving that he is an idiot.

  66. Eilee says – reply to this


    this is not even worth reporting.
    its obviously fake for media attnention

  67. 67

    He abandoned those kids when they were young. All he cared about was himself and they suffered because of his selfishness. I hope they can stop giving him any thought at all and move on with their lives. It is so hard to be a child of a celeb or even a family member of a celeb because they always feel like the celeb is more important cause the world sees them as famous and so they seem to carry more weight as people. This is so untrue.
    By casting off his kids, he is destined to never leave anything of value behind when his time comes to pass on.

  68. fiera says – reply to this


    Truly a very stupid, selfish, and sick man who is going to die alone with no one to care for him.

  69. 69

    Anyone who says they hate their own child deserves to rot in hell. Maybe instead of bitching about them and wishing they were never born, he should take responsibility for their problems. Anyone with a brain can tell he's the reason his kids are so fucked up. Team Griffin.

    Re: contrarianchick

    Please, please don't ever have children. It sounds like you have enough daddy issues going already.

  71. SusyQ says – reply to this


    Wow Ryan..I hope you wash up on the shores of Malibu one of these days..doing drugs with your son and hiring hookers for the two of you was bad enough but you have proven yourself to be one hell of a disgusting excuse of a father by saying such hateful things about your own kids

  72. 72

    The day you're willing to be quoted in a magazine as saying you "hate" your own child is the day your soul is forfeit.

  73. 73

    Stupid Dick.

  74. 74


  75. pj88 says – reply to this


    such a bastard ( That vain son of a bitch will probably read this!!!). I don't care how horrible your children may be, but to "hate" your own child is disgusting. You may not love them, you may not see them.. but "hate" them. The only real reason why he is made at Tatum is because she has an OSCAR and he never will!!!!!

  76. 76

    No one seems to have commented on what seems to me to be the bigger issue: What the HELL was he doing trying to pick up a woman at the funeral of his supposedly "love of his life"? I've known a lot of sleezeballs but no one that gross. Even worse, he brags about it. He is so desperate to get in the news he'll brag about trying to pick someone up at his lover's funeral? I don't think he gave a damn about Farrah Fawcett. He just liked the attention and finally getting in the press.

  77. 77

    Yeah, he's a total douche-bag but at least he's honest.

  78. 78

    Kinda raw and honest. Not pretty, but more people should have that level of self-awareness. Still needs major help. Probably too old to matter.

  79. 79

    This guy is now & has always been a disgusting excuse for a father & husband. He needs to crawl under a rock somewhere, after he begs his children's forgiveness for so royally screwing up their lives!

  80. 80


  81. 81

    What an idiot!!!

  82. 82

    Jerk. No wonder his kids are all messed up with him for a father.

  83. 83

    Re: equinox
    Excellent point!!!!

  84. 84

    What a douchebag. He shpulda been castrated at birth!

  85. 85

    Motherfucker. I remember how shitty he treated his son Griffin back in the day. Griffin drove all the way down to be in the funeral at that fuckface of a father didn't even let him into the service. What kind of an asshole does that? And says he wishes he could take them back and not have them? Sick old fuck, I wish he died instead. Farrah seemed so much more of a parent to his own kids than he ever was.

  86. 86

    and don't even get me started on his sickfuck comments about his daughter. Christ, someone put hiim down already.

  87. 87

    Wow he is disgusting. He should have had a vasectomy as soon as he was old enough to reproduce. Those poor kids of his. What a disgrace ! I'm embarassed for them. I always felt like he was a phony, even when I saw him in Farrahs documentary. His true self is starting to reveal itself.

  88. 88

    Oh my God! I have never ever heard of a bigger douche in my life! He even tops Jolie's dad who doesn't even know his own Grandkid's names when half of his daughter's fans know that and more. If I ever see this guy in so much as a tabloid it'll be too soon!

    Re: so what – Egg-zactly; except his light bulb just isn't coming on. If another had this awareness, they'd paddle like hell before they died to try to undo and make up for the mess they created with their kids. Just saying.

  90. 90

    Ryan O'Neal has the IQ of a small appliance bulb. No surprises here. Maybe he's really grief stricken and nuts. Maybe he ought to just shut up.

  91. 91

    How can someone be so low? This makes my dad seem like the father of the year. His kids deserve better. No wonder they all seem so sad.
