Sofia Coppola was born into Hollywood royalty. The youngest and only daughter of Eleanor Coppola and Francis Coppola, who were of Italian descent. Coppola's heritage was fully Italian and raised in a Catholic way. But definite confirmation is not available as her father isn't Catholic anymore. 

Sofia Coppola Political Views

Sofia Coppola has kept her political views out of limelight, whenever possible. Seems like she doesn't want something as personal as that out for public reviews or criticisms. Her father was a staunch Democrat but we are left with a vague idea of the political preferences of his daughter.  Though her interests in white female's stories has lead some of accusing her of being politically ignorant, in her films at least.

Sometime in early 1990s, Coppola met director Spike Jonze. They got married within a few years but got divorced in 2003. Then she married musician Thomas Mars, in 2011.

Apart from film making and screen writing, she seems to have an inclination towards appearing in music videos. Sofia Coppola leads such a busy life that pursuing her personal hobbies seem far fetched.
