Woody Allen: A quirky personality
I think that Woody Allen is a good example of a quirky personality. Allen was born and raised in Brooklyn in the bosom of a Jewish family. He didn’t have0 a happy childhood; his parents had a turbulent relationship and during summer camps he was “savagely beaten by children of all races”.
In spite of having a gift for comedy, when he went to New York University to study communication and film he failed a film course and was eventually expelled.
Allen got married 3 times and, although h Mia Farrow and him never married, he adopted 2 children with her and they also had a biological child, who doesn’t want any relationship with him. Also, Mia had other biological and adopted children, one of them was Soon-Yi, with whom Allen got married a few years later.
Allen has undergone psychoanalysis for at least 30 years but in spite of that, he admits he is still a claustrophobic and agoraphobic person.
