Since the announcement of Kim Jong-il's death on Monday (December 19), North Korean television has shown footage of crowds of the country's citizens openly weeping in the streets.
Farrow, a noted peace activist, cast doubt on the legitimacy of the footage on her Twitter account by hinting that the mourning may have been staged.
"N Korea: Ppl sobbing,wailing & thrashing about - as an actor I can say, they would never get hired (sic)," the star tweeted.
Farrow and Allen's son Ronan Farrow was recently honoured with a Rhodes scholarship to study at Oxford University.
