Woody Allen and Mia Farrow's Son is a "Friggin' Genius"


410px-ronan_farrow_headshotMany times the offspring of famous actors or directors go into the family business of movie making. Little old nepotism makes it an easy career choice. But Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s son Ronan? No glitz or glamour for him. The twenty-one year old has just been appointed as a “liaison to non-governmental organizations working in Pakistan.”

Humanitarian groups were surprised by the appointment,  “You have seasoned, experienced NGO officials dealing with some very sensitive foreign policy and humanitarian aid issues, whose main contact in Holbrooke’s [Special Representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke] office is a [21] year old whose experience has been traveling to southern Sudan with his mom.”

But Holbrooke has worked with Ronan since he was a teenager and a state department has stated “”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.”

Oh and apparently Ronan is wicked smart. An insidre said that he is, “‘a friggin’ genius and a true activist for Darfur … Went to college at age 11 and then to law school at 16.” He recently graduated from Yale Law School and is a journalist who’s penned pieces for Los Angeles Times, the International Herald Tribune, the Wall Street Journal among others.
