Sofia Coppola is an American actress and director.


The daughter of Francis Ford Coppola and Eleanor Coppola, Sofia made her first film appearance in The Godfather as the infant Michael Rizzi. She also played an uncredited role as a girl on the ship which carried Vito Corleone to New York.

She also appeared in The Outsiders and Frankenweenie. After receiving heavy criticism for playing Mary Corleone in The Godfather Part III (which she only appeared in after Winona Ryder dropped out), Sofia became better known as a director, being nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director for Lost in Translation. She is the only actor to appear in all three films in the series in different roles.

She has two daughters: Romy (born November 28, 2006) named after her brother Roman and Cosmia (born May 18, 2010) with Thomas Mars, who played Carmine Coppola in The Godfather Part II. They married on August 27, 2011 at her family's villa in Bernalda, Italy.
