Sofia Coppola - Motherhood Inspired Sofia Coppola To Write 'Somewhere'

Sofia Coppola was inspired to make her new movie 'Somewhere' after becoming a mother.

The 'Lost in Translation' director - who has two daughters Romy, four, and Cosima, five months, with partner Thomas Mars - revealed seeing Thomas with their kids made her write the story about a bad boy actor who is forced to sober up when he receives a visit from his 11-year-old daughter.

She said: "I think motherhood changes your perspective and your priorities and it makes you think about your own parents. And I was looking at my boyfriend being the father of a daughter.

"And I was curious how complicated that relationship would be for a guy who was with a lot of women to have a daughter who is now on the verge of becoming a woman. Kids are aware of what's going on when people think they're not paying attention. I tried to put that into the character."

Sofia said her own relationship with her director father Francis Ford Coppola also inspired the "sweet, romantic" nature of the father-daughter bond in the movie.

She told Britain's Vogue magazine: "I think of adventures I went on as a kid with my father and I think it's such an important relationship for a girl.
