Woody Allen & Mia Farrow's Prodigy Son Appointed NGO Liason

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TruePolitik

ap06061903399_e.jpg

Ronan Farrow, offspring of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen has been appointed as a liaison to non-governmental organizations working in Pakistan.

And he's only 21!

Sounds a little young, don't you think?

Humanitarian groups met with Special Representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holobrooke were shocked with Ronan's appointment.

A humanitarian official described other representatives reaction to the news saying:

"You have seasoned, experienced NGO officials dealing with some very sensitive foreign policy and humanitarian aid issues, whose main contact in Holbrooke's office is a [21] year old whose experience has been traveling to southern Sudan with his mom."

How is traveling to Sudan make someone qualified?

But, a State Department confirms that the so called "prodigy" who has worked with Holobrooke since he was a teenager, is well qualified:

"He's very qualified for the job, and has already helped explain the current situation re: Pakistani procurements to key NGOs, including a meeting he organized today with InterAction and its affiliated NGOs."

One official even said that the celebuspawn is "a friggin' genius and a true activist for Darfur … Went to college at age 11 and then to law school at 16."

Hopefully the "friggin' genius" isn't a"friggin' mistake".

  1. 1

    Rosemary's Baby has super human powers



  2. 2

    Of course he's a genius - he's Woody's son!



  3. 3

    They had a kid together?



  4. 4

    With enjoyment of your site in mind, Perez…

    Let's see…Ronan is explaining Middle Eastern procurements to seasoned advocacy officials. You are explaining Lily Allen's latest wardrobe malfunction.

    In a battle of stones versus glass house, I think you lose this round.



  5. 5

    Take note douchebag! Have you ANYTHING positive to say???? If you had 1/100th the maturity and mentality this kid has….if only!!



  6. 6

    wow you're ridiculous… selena gomez isn't too young though, right? I've been reading about this kids humanitarian work for years. He is WELL qualified… it would do you some good for you to do some research instead of being so critical about everything.



  7. 7

    ps wody allen is creepy



  8. 8

    Refreshing to see a celebrity's child who obviously has his head on straight and wants to do something positive with his life. Kudos to his parents for raising a responsible young adult (even tho I still think Woody Allen is creepy). Are you watching, Lohan family???



  9. 9

    mario you're such a hater - just because you spend your day spewing your hate for everything that isn't gay or under the age of 18 doesn't mean the rest of the world stoops to your standards. this young man should be praised for being interested in his education although he was born w/ a silver spoon…….thank goodness he's not another hilton or k-shian……..



  10. 10

    Re: Kimberella – @ 4 - completely agreed, mario's a dumbass



  11. 11

    the kid IS a genius. graduated college at 15 and accepted to yale law school by 16. took a year off between college and law school to work as an assistant of the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. it really doesn't matter his age or who his parents are. he's gotten more accomplished (in education and humanitarian efforts) at 21 than the majority of americans will do in their lifetime.



  12. 12

    I don't care if he's a genius , his father is a fucking freak and she should rot in prison + hell.



  13. 13

    Friggen mistake??????? What is that supposed to mean???



  14. 14

    He's no dummy, fer sure. Check out the article on him in Wikipedia. I didn't recognize the name at first because his dad named him Satchel and he doesn't go by that.



  15. 15

    Wonderful! Inspirational!



  16. 16

    Hey Perez before you post you should google the people you are tearing apart. At age 16, Farrow was accepted into law school at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. He deferred his admission until the fall of 2006 to work as Special Assistant to Richard Holbrooke, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, and for additional work with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).



  17. 17

    Put some makeup and a brown wig with bangs on him and he looks JUST like Kiera Knightly :D



  18. 18

    He looks like his mom.



  19. 19

    Didn't you promise that you would NOT SPEAK ILL of children for 6 months??? How quickly you forget. And this kid is doing something GOOD–and you slam him?? You're always bitching about celeb kids partying–and here we have a good kid trying to make a difference and you fault him???
    FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  20. 20

    Is that a recent picture? He looks like he is about 14.



  21. 21

    Genius? I'd say yes.. I don't see why his age is an issue, though–it is the life you've packed into your years that matters. He entered Simon's Rock at 11; that speaks for itself!



  22. 22

    He is a genius (acccepted to Yale Universtiy at age 16) and is FAR more qualified for this job then most other Americans in their lifetime.



  23. 23

    Again with the deregotory comments about the children of celebrities. What is your problem. Do you even know this man? How is it possible to make judgments like you do, when you probably couldn't even last 5 minutes in a serious conversation about anything other than Gay Rights or Lady Gag-Gag.

    Tick-tock; Tick-Tock



  24. 24

    Most people with that level of intelligence start doing things and making an impact in the world at a very young age, and why shouldn't they? Would you rather he party with LiLo until he's old enough to get your stamp of approval? You're an ass, Perez.



  25. 25

    What's with the crutches? Pakistan is dangerous for westerners - remember Daniel Pearl?



  26. 26

    He's a well known genius Perez. Didn't you follow the drama??

    Went to Bard College with him. He graduated when he was like 16 and he'd since come back with his mom to lead conferences on the state of the Middle East. Don't question him just because of his age and the fact that he's the son of two celebrities. You're premature judgment is ridiculous and your resentment… delicious.

    Re: argella – Thanks! I knew when I read this article that Ronan was a name I had never heard of, but I didn't know if he had a different name before or was a kid I didn't know of. So when I read your post, I went "Satchel!" Right! Thanks for ltetting me know I'm not crazy :)



  29. 29

    Re: Kimberella – Well said…hangs head in childish shame…but still gives Perez a side eye



  30. 30

    not everyone has the mentality and maturity of a 12 year old school girl, like you do fatboy



  31. 31

    There's a trend in the corporate world to hire the young, even if they aren't qualified. The emphasis is on how cheaply they can fill the position and not on the quality of the candidate.



  32. 32

    …did 'Woody' screw him too?



  33. 33

    And what are YOU doing, Perez? Talking shit about celebrities? Wow, you really have the right to criticize him.



  34. 34

    You've just got to be nasty haven't you.



  35. 35

    As if you are judging his abilities and qualifications based on 2 paragraphs someone else wrote down… Haha you have no idea, do you? What a laugh!



  36. 36

    Cool dude. Nice hair, too.

  37. fUkRD says – reply to this


    37

    Perez you are a fucking idiot! You support something like PETA and their save the seals bulshit, (because it's the latest celebrity trend) and then you have the nerve to put down someone who is obviously 100x smarter than you, actually DOES make a difference in the world and through something much greater than you and your fame/glamour/glitz whoring ways. He does it because he actually cares,..you do it because of the glitz,…for the show,..you are a fake perez.



  38. 38

    This guy looks like he should be a vampire in Twilight….his skin is like porcelain…very eerie.



  39. 39

    Re: DeadlyNightshade – in prison? what did woody allen do to be ptu in prison? marrying a step daughter…who he never touched until after she was of legal age, isn't a crime. AND they are still married. don't disgrace a good movie with that name…….idiots always think they know what's going on.



  40. 40

    Seriously? Not only are you questioning the abilities of a person who, first and foremost, has a BA in Philosophy and Biology and a Law Degree from Yale, as well as in field experience in several african conflict countries; but you also represent him with a picture from 4-5 years ago.



  41. 41

    So, the only think you're qualified for is talking shit and promoting crappy new music? I guess everyone has to find their niche.

    Welcome to Obamanation where experience and qualifications are old fashion and obsolete concepts relegated to the history books.



  43. 43

    Oh my goodness, I haven't seen him since he was a toddler! Here's someone trying to do some GOOD so what matter his age? If he's a genius then all the better. This may be a future president ya know!



  44. 44

    Where the fuck does a retarded mad-cow homo douchebag like you get off questioning the intelligence or qualifications of anybody, or anything for that matter other than a fucking piece of shit (such as yourself)? Mario, crawl back home to the steaming pile of shit you spawned from. Ignorant fucks like you judging? How long did it take your sister to explain what an NGO was to you, Fucktard?



  45. 45

    Re: gimlet123 – 31 comments ahead of you indicating that the boy is a genius and has a vast amount of experience, and now we hear from the Peanut gallery. What are you, 7?



  46. 46

    Two of my three children graduated from high school at age 11 and went to college when they were 12. They are more mature in their thinking than 99.9% of adults I have met. When anyone in my neighborhood needs a question answered about anything, they call or come by my house and ask my kids. My daughter is now 15 and about to graduate with three B.S. degrees. Don't hate on smart children because you are not that smart. Be happy for them. The problem with us humans is that instead of celebrating and being happy for each other's achievements, we spew hate. God does not like ugly Perez so I suggest you change your ways. Remember, karma is a bitch.



  47. 47

    Re: Moron – Your screen name suits you to a tee. What a stupid comment.



  48. 48

    ageist. , why would someone be too young for aid work?? lol
    your such a jerk off sometimes .. lately, your always contradicting yourself and leaving parts of sentences missing.
    how could it be a mistake???? Ugh, this makes no sense!!!
    WHO ARE YOU, AND WHAT ACADEMIC RELEVANCE DO YOU EVEN HAVE TO COMMENT????



  49. 49

    Sorry, but I'm halfway on Perez's side. I don't care how smart you are, I just don't take anybody that young seriously. I think it's scary. I think they have problems; here's why. Prodigy or not, did this kid have a normal life? Did he socialize and mature like other people? He might be unbelievably smart and talented, but what about the rest of his life? What's wrong with him taking some time off to just 'be a kid'? I worry about people in his position, about what their future holds. If they're doing this stuff from this early of an age, might they crack under the pressure if not given time off to just 'slack'?

    Re: Moron
    # 42
    Unbelievably stupid



  51. 51

    There's Heidi Montag.
    And then there's Ronan Farrow .. He's qualified; I wish him well.



  52. 52

    You can read articles written by him online.
    He's the real deal.



  53. 53

    I don't understand the negativity on this, Perez. He's doing good and worked on this for a long time. He should be praised for his actions, not slammed…



  54. 54

    Re: binkie – if anyone here is stupid enough to believe that 2/3 of your kids were high school grads at 11, they are dumb fucks. if your kids are that amazing, i hope they spend at least an hour a day telling you how much of a dumb fuck you are for spending time on this site. if i had kids that smart, i would be spending time with them…you're a lying sack of shit.



  55. 55

    We already have a "friggin' mistake" in the white house. One big *ss mistake, America.



  56. 56

    As long as he has the information and intelligence to do the work, I don't care if he's 16.



  57. 57

    Re: Moron. Ok, then, go back to searching for Obama's "birth certificate". You've embarrassed yourself enough making comments that my racist, Appalachian relatives would say.

    lawschool at 16??? WOW!!!!



  59. 59

    An intelligent young man trying to do good for the world rather than mooch off his parents for life. Oh NOES! What is the world coming to?



  60. 60

    Re: perezisavindictivebitch
    So what if they are still married ? It's sickening to the core what he did. How do you know that he didn't touch her when she was younger, she had naked pictures of her since she was 12 years old ffs !!!
    We think we know it all ? How do you know it all retard ???
    Go fuck yourself !



  61. 61

    oh perez please.. you're probably just jealous because you're not even remotely close to being smart.. what.. you're a grown up who's making a living by gossiping.. so sad.



  62. 62

    Since when is it a mistake for young people to actually take some responsibility and initiative into solving the world's problems? You don't have to be a genius to get involved, I hope young people realize early in life it's not 'all about them'. Good for him.



  63. 63

    Shutup, Perez. Unless you had something to back that up, like iono you doing something other than promoting an dignity-less tranny & bitching about people more dignified and successful people than you..



  64. 64

    Congratulations on your position Ronan - good luck! xo



  65. 65

    THIS BOY IS A HOTTIE!!!!!!

    Everyone drop what you are doing right now and look at his picture on Wikipedia RIGHT NOW! HOTTIE!!! YOU TOO PEREZ!!!!

    How this boy can be the son of Woody Allen I'll never get.
    P.S. the pict above is like from 2001.



  66. 66

    Re: valentino2003 – Holy crap… he IS a hottie! Not that this is the important thing in this discussion, but wow, the pic Perez used must be OLD.



  67. 67

    Approach it from the positive, Perez, and hope that he is capable of really doing an outstanding job!!!



  68. 68

    wow…AND - he is absolutely gorgeous. really can't believe I'm only the 3rd person to say as much!
