An actress and model Babi Christina is sharing her alleged story of an affair with Woody Allen that began when she was 16, and included threesomes with him and his then-partner Mia Farrow.
The now-59-year-old tells The Hollywood Reporter that she caught the then-41-year-old’s attention in October of 1976 at watering hole Elaine’s on the Upper East Side. After meeting, they became intimate a few weeks later, she says.
"I was a pleaser, agreeable. Knowing he was a director, I didn’t argue. I was coming from a place of devotion," she says.
Her brother Mike recalls Allen calling their parents’ home in New Jersey. "I’d holler out, ‘Babi, it’s Woody!’ My brain didn’t think something romantic; I was 11 or 12 and a huge fan. I mean, Bananas?!" he says.
"There were times the three of us were together, and it was actually great fun. We enjoyed each other when we were in the moment. She was beautiful and sweet, he was charming and alluring, and I was sexy and becoming more and more sophisticated in this game," she notes.
She continues: "While we were together, the whole thing was a game that was being operated solely by Woody so we never quite knew where we stood. I used to think this was a form of mother-father with the two of them. To me, that whole relationship was very Freudian: how I admired them, how he’d already broken me in, how I let that be all right."
This is hardly the first accusation Allen has faced. His adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow says she was molested by Allen as a child, a charge he has denied.
