If I could die and come back as anyone, I’d want to come back as Sofia Coppola.
Ok, so her dad cast her in Godfather III and she kinda sucked. (See above, as she’s shot in the chest and utters a totally monotone: “Dad.”) Everyone thought that was going to be hard to live down, but I bet no one reading this even a.) remembers or b.) gives a fuck.
What really counts is that Sophia went on to be the third female director, and only American woman, to be nominated for an Academy Award for Directing, the other two being Lina Wertmüller and Jane Campion.
Whoa. That is kind of a staggering and sad fact…
Sofia is so boss.
