He's also [[KavorkaMan notorious]] for being a heavy womanizer. He has been involved with Harlene Rosen, Louise Lasser, Diane Keaton, Stacey Nelkin, Mia Farrow -- and Soon-Yi Previn, Mia's adopted daughter with former husband Andre Previn. Woody had adopted Dylan and Moses Farrow, two of Mia's adopted children but had no contact with Soon-Yi for most of her life. He engaged in an affair with Soon-Yi when she was 19, and the resulting outcry led to a bitter and public legal battle and media circus that still defines his image. During this period, he was also accused of sexually assaulting Mia Farrow's other daughter Dylan Farrow when she was ''seven''. Dylan still maintains the accusations, while Allen denies them. His [[https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/29/movies/mia-farrow-woody-allen-abuse.html other adopted child]], Moses Farrow, has since parted ways with Mia Farrow and befriended Woody with whom he was estranged during the controversy, and has supported Allen's side of the argument against Mia Farrow and Dylan Farrow, insisting that Woody is innocent. Naturally, almost every single plotline of his scripts is about [[AuthorAppeal sex, adultery and relationships, among other interesting things.]]
