Life Story of Woody Allen

Woody Allen was born Allan Stewart Konigsberg on December 1, 1935 in Brooklyn, New York, to Nettie (Cherrie), a bookkeeper, and Martin Konigsberg, a waiter and jewellery engraver. His father was of Russian Jewish descent, and his maternal grandparents were Austrian Jewish immigrants. As a young boy, he became intrigued with magic tricks and playing the clarinet, two hobbies that he continues today.

Allen broke into show business at 15 years when he started writing jokes for a local paper, receiving $200 a week. He later moved on to write jokes for talk shows but felt that his jokes were being wasted. His agents, Charles Joffe and Jack Rollins, convinced him to start doing stand-up and telling his own jokes. Reluctantly he agreed and, although he initially performed with such fear of the audience that he would cover his ears when they applauded his jokes, he eventually became very successful at stand-up. After performing on stage for a few years, he was approached to write a script for Warren Beatty to star in: Was gibt's Neues, Pussy? (1965) and would also have a moderate role as a character in the film. During production, Woody gave himself more and better lines and...

Dated Mia Farrow from 1980 to 1992. They adopted two children, Moses Farrow (b. 1978) and Dylan O'Sullivan Farrow (b. 1985), and had one son, Ronan Farrow (b. 1987). Mia Farrow became Allen's mother-in-law in 1997 when he married Soon-Yi Previn, the adoptive daughter of Farrow and second husband André Previn. In 2013, Mia sensationally claimed that Ronan may possibly be the biological offspring of her first husband Frank Sinatra, rather than Allen.

Although he is barely interested in awards, he's one of the Academy's favorites--his 16 Oscar Nominations for Best Original Screenplay as of 2014 are a record for that category. This puts him ahead of Billy Wilder, who had 19 combined Oscar nominations for Writing and Directing. With 24 nominations in the combination of the top-three categories--acting, directing and writing--he holds the record there as well.
