Sofia Coppola: Secret 'Twilight' Fan

Sofia Coppola: Secret 'Twilight' Fan-photo

Director Sofia Coppola recently admitted that she is a bit of a Twihard.

In a recent interview with MTV News, the Oscar-winner proved that it isn't just screaming tweens who are obsessed with Twilight:

I love, I'm impressed by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison pulling it off in that whole story. [...[ I just love that [Breaking Dawn] so romantic. I'm always a sucker for a love story and also to do something for teenagers, because I feel like, why not have beautiful cinematography and all these things in a kid movie? Usually it looks like it's not crafted very sophisticated, and I feel like it'd be nice to bring that kind of style into a younger film.

The Lost in Translation director admits that she was tapped by Summit Entertainment to direct the final two installments of the Twilight Saga but the director's chair eventually went to Bill Condon.

Why was a Hollywood cool girl interested in director something that is–in her words–a "kid movie"? "My friend's kids love the story so much," the director admitted, "I thought it would be fun to make something that they love so much."

Sofia, who is the daughter of famed director Francis Ford Coppola, is currently prepping for the release of her latest film, Somewhere, starring Stephen Dorff.

    Wow! I've you think the Twilight saga, especially Breaking Dawn, is for kids, then you just proved you have no fu**ing idea you're talking about, Sofia.I like her (Sofia, I mean), SPOILER but a nude scene, sex, teenage pregnancy of a thing that, at first, seems like a monster, that kills the mother, vampires that rip each other's heads off, etc. END OF SPOILERIs that for kids? Hell no. It's for teenages, but almost adult teenages. Just a prove that everybody thinks that if they say "Oh yeah, I love Twilight, it's, um, so cool", they will be known and liked, at least, by Twi-Hards. I didn't expect this from you... Yeah, it's proved "jealous" it's a bad feeling and how awful to feel and the worst thing to demonstrate to everybody... She (Sofia) is free to like whatever she wants, and you don't need to put words in her mouth, looser!!! Her name COPOLLA, doesn't need being part of something that it's already famous too.

    i think she would have been a better choice for Breaking Dawn. the film needs a woman's perspective for that story. she turned it down because she wanted it to be one film instead of breaking it into 2. its cool shes a fan of the series.
