He additionally stated he had no second ideas about courting his then-partner’s adopted daughter, who was then in her early 20s. “No, it didn’t give me pause because the relationship with Soon-Yi was very gradual. It’s not like I went out with her one night and kissed her.” He added, “There was never a moment that it wasn’t the most natural thing in the world.”
He additionally advised that his relationship with Mia Farrow was removed from a typical marital partnership. “I never lived with Mia; I never slept at Mia’s house in all the years I went with her,” he stated.
