Director Sofia Coppola has shared her reaction to the viral TikTok video of her teenage daughter Romy, which saw her mocking the fact that she had been grounded for trying to charter a helicopter from New York to Maryland with the map of his father’s credit.
Thanks to the quickly deleted clip the 16-year-old posted in March, Romy was called “ultimate nepo baby’, joking that she would spend her time stuck at home making vodka pasta sauce – even though she didn’t know the difference between garlic and onion.
Reflecting on her daughter’s very public rebellion in a new interview, Sofia admitted her child knew it was the “best way” to anger her parents.
The Marie Antoinette filmmaker, 52, said The Hollywood Reporter“We were raised to be so private and social media is so opposite to how I grew up. So that was the best way for her to be rebellious.
Sofia Coppola has finally shared her reaction to the viral TikTok video of her teenage daughter Romy, which saw her mocking the fact that she had been grounded for trying to charter a helicopter.
Romy, 16, uploaded a clip to TikTok in March to reveal that she tried to charter a helicopter from New York to Maryland with her father’s credit card so she could attend a dinner party.
Sofia – who is the daughter of famed director Francis Ford Coppola – revealed that it was noticed that the family’s talent for storytelling and filmmaking had clearly shown itself in the next generation.
She continued, “I got a lot of compliments on her acting. And comedy. She is funny. But the people publicly discussing my parenting are not what I would have hoped for.
In the clip, Romy was seen trying to pass the hours of her ban by cooking up a storm in the kitchen – before bizarrely introduced viewers to his “surrogate parents”, claiming that his were never home.
The video saw Romy – whose parents are filmmaker Coppola and Thomas Mars, lead singer of indie pop band Phoenix – speaking to the camera from her family’s kitchen as she prepared to make the vodka pasta sauce – before embarking on a series of revelations.
She began, “I’m grounded because I tried to charter a helicopter from New York to Maryland with my dad’s credit card because I wanted to have dinner with my friend from camp.”
The teenager, who has a 12-year-old sister, then prepares to start cooking but quickly admits: “I don’t know the difference between a garlic and an onion.
“I just need to google pictures of onions on my phone. I am embarrassed.’
Romy continued, “Also, I was thinking of doing this since I’m already being punished because the biggest rule from my parents is that I’m not allowed to have public social media accounts…
Romy’s parents are famed filmmaker Coppola (pictured together) and Thomas Mars, lead singer of indie pop band Phoenix.
She joked that she would spend her time stuck at home making vodka pasta sauce – even though she didn’t know the difference between garlic and onion.
“Because they don’t want me to be a child of nepotism, but TikTok isn’t going to make me famous so it doesn’t really matter.”
She then showed one of her ingredients on the screen and said, “Wait, is that an onion? Because I feel like it doesn’t look like an onion.
The camera then cuts to show her babysitter’s boyfriend as he strokes the family dog.
Romy said, “This is Ari…my parents are never home, so these are my surrogate parents.”
It appeared that she then asked Ari to go to the store to buy some ingredients for her before the clip ended.
At one point the camera was cut to show her babysitter’s boyfriend as he strokes the family dog before she claims her parents are “never home”.
Fortunately, other social media users were able to see the funny side of the clip and rushed to the comments to share their thoughts.
