The 69-year-old actress and 78-year-old director were together for over ten years, and have shared an acrimonious relationship since their breakup in 1992. The couple split after Farrow discovered Allen and her daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, were romantically involved, and the actress won custody of their children, Dylan, Moshe and Satchel, after the separation.
Farrow's relationship with the director was further damaged when a doctor reported concerns that Allen had sexually abused Dylan, a claim Dylan (now known as Malone) repeated in an open letter in February. A judge found the charges inconclusive in 1994, and Allen denied the allegations once again this year.
The director told The Times of London he doesn't agonize over his drama with Farrow "for a second," and said the dispute doesn't define him enough to "inscribe on his gravestone."
"That means nothing to me," he asserted. "I've never given it a second's thought, afterward ... And what do I care, when I shuffle off my coil? I don't really care about anything that happens after my death. I don't care if they take all of my movies and burn them."
Allen told the publication he leads "a very uneventful, very dull middle-class life," and declared there is "no God," "no magic" and "no reason for anything." The director released Magic in the Moonlight in August, and has an untitled project with Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix in the works for 2015.
