“Punished for trying to rent a helicopter with friends”: the “lost in translation” life of Romy, 16, daughter of Sofia Coppola


The teenager has published a video that has gone viral, in which she multiplies the snubs to her parents, who fear, according to her, to see her become a “nepo baby”.

"This TikTok isn't going to make me famous, so that's okay," she said.

Only downside, the video unveiled - then deleted - by Romy Croquet, daughter of director Sofia Coppola and Thomas Mars, the singer of the group Phoenix, has already toured the Web.

The sequence was indeed taken up by the Twitter account @savbrads, on Tuesday March 21, and viewed 6.5 million times.

The 16-year-old girl, deprived of release for having tried to rent a helicopter, multiplies her snubs there to her parents, who met on the set of

Virgin Suicides

(1999) and married in August 2011.

Rule number one

“I make pasta with vodka because I was punished for trying to rent a helicopter with my father's credit card, began Romy Croquet.

I wanted to go from New York to Maryland to have dinner with my summer camp friends.

Before adding, by challenge: “I told myself that I would make this video, since I am already punished.

The biggest rule from my parents is that I'm not allowed to have social media accounts."

The award-winning director and the French musician would fear, according to their daughter, to see her become a “

nepo baby

”, these famous children by proxy, thanks to a prestigious surname and/or a famous relative.

To illustrate her words, the one who had made a remarkable appearance alongside her mother, in February 2020, at the Marc Jacobs show, nevertheless showed her father's Grammy, received in 2010 (Sofia Coppola's Oscar being him, kept in the closet).

A “fiasco”

A gesture that sets the tone for this quirky TikTok, in which the granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola and sister of Cosima Croquet, 12, admits not knowing how to differentiate an onion from a clove of garlic.

"I had to 'Google' pictures of onions on my phone – I'm embarrassed," said the young girl with the knotted hair and the sky blue top.

The teenager, born on November 28, 2006 in Paris, subsequently filmed Ari, the “boyfriend of her babysitter”.

While claiming that she considered the couple her “surrogate parents” because hers “are never home”, and deriding the “helicopter fiasco”.

The “best of nepo babies”

The cheeky video did not fail to react to Internet users.

"A rich child who is punished for her crazy but whimsical gesture: it could be the plot of a Sofia Coppola film," joked author Wendy Syfret in particular.

“His mother is Sofia Coppola, it was obvious that she would become intelligent and funny,” wrote producer @thisismax.

"She's the best of

nepo babies

," outbid @ThatPackmanDude while covering this footage.

The one who already had nearly 30,000 TikTok subscribers – before her account was closed to the public – and was apparently planning to get into music, has probably not finished talking about her.
