Nepo babies — they’re just like us!
The eldest daughter of acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola, 16-year-old Romy, just revealed in a totally unrelatable yet hilarious TikTok that she was grounded for attempting to rent a chopper using her musician father Thomas Mars’ credit card.
“Make a vodka-sauce pasta with me because I’m grounded because I tried to charter a helicopter from New York to Maryland on my dad’s credit card because I wanted to have dinner with a camp friend,” Romy began the video, which only got funnier.
The teen went on to disclose that she did not “know the difference between a garlic and an onion,” so she “had to Google images of onions on [her] phone.”
She claimed to be “embarrassed” by the admission.
“Also, I thought I would do this since I’m already grounded since my parents’ biggest rule is, like, I’m not allowed to have any public social media accounts,” she said of joining the platform.

Holding up the Phoenix frontman’s Grammy — which Mars and his French indie pop band won in 2010 — she explained, “Here’s why.”
Romy added that her parents “don’t want [her] to be a nepotism kid” before insisting that “TikTok is not gonna make [her] famous, so it doesn’t really matter.”

She then held up what appeared to be a shallot and asked, “Is this an onion? Because I feel like this doesn’t look like an onion. This looks like the inner workings of a …”
Although the camera cut away before she could finish her thought, the caption atop the video concluded her sentence with “balls–k.”
In the next scene, Romy introduced her followers to her babysitter’s boyfriend, who was petting a Golden Retriever.
“My parents are never home, so these are my replacement parents,” she said, adding that she “almost burned the house down” with her cooking.
Romy then asked the unnamed boyfriend what he thought about “the helicopter fiasco,” prompting the man to rename it a “fiascA — ’cause it’s, like, a feminine fiasco.”
This made perfect sense to the teen, who pointed out that “it’s Women’s History Month.”
Romy has since deleted the video (though it’s making its rounds on Twitter and Instagram) and has made her TikTok account private.
Reps for Oscar-winning Coppola, 51, had no comment when contacted by Page Six, while reps for Mars, 46, did not immediately respond to our inquiry.
The pair are also parents to 12-year-old daughter Cosima.
