Romy Coppola Mars with her mother Sofia in 2020

Her mother is an Oscar-winning director. Her grandfather made one of the biggest films, The Godfather.

Now Romy Coppola Mars has joined the family dynasty — with a TikTok that has unwittingly made her a viral star.

In the clipthe 16-year-old daughter of Sofia Coppola and granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola, claims she was grounded for trying to charter a helicopter using her father’s credit card.

The teen apparently had no intention of presenting herself as the latest sensation in the family line and said she was breaking her parents’ rule of not having a public social media account simply because she was already grounded.

“They don’t want me to be a nepotism kid,” she told her followers. “But TikTok isn’t going to make me famous, so it doesn’t matter.”

Her account was short-lived, however, and was apparently deleted after the video blew up.

It begins with her inviting viewers to “make vodka pasta sauce with me because I’m grounded” before fueling the drama by revealing that she was punished by her parents “for trying.” “To charter a helicopter from New York to Maryland on my dad’s credit card because I wanted to have dinner with my camp friend”.

Her father, Thomas Mars, is in the French indie band Phoenix. At one point in the video, Romy holds up the Grammy Award he won in 2010.

Going back to the recipe, she says she doesn’t know the difference between a head of garlic and an onion, before scowling innocently and holding up a kitchen knife.

She then introduces her babysitter’s boyfriend and explains, “My parents are never home, so these are my surrogate parents”.

Second part

Another answered: “It has dramatic suspense, excellent production design, good evocative props displaying emotion (onions = tears), shocking family revelations, slapstick comedy, great dialogue… You’re right.”

At the end of her video, Romy promises to return with “part two, where I actually make the pasta”.

“I can’t wait – this is going to be the best part two a Coppola has ever done,” joked another Twitter user – a nod to her grandfather’s The Godfather Part II, which is considered by some to be better than the original film.

A rep for her mother, who won an Oscar for Lost in Translation and directed The Virgin Suicides and The Beguiled, declined to comment.
