Sofia Coppola talks about ''Lost in Translation.'' By following in her father's footsteps, a young filmmaker finds her own way.
''I never wanted to be an actor,'' says Coppola, who at 32, has long since brushed off the battering. ''It's not my personality. I don't like to be on stage. But I don't regret anything. Plus, that was so long ago for me. It's like someone asking about having braces. I just don't remember it.'' So Coppola, who grew up poking around the costume departments of her father's legendary film sets, gave art school a whirl. She never did graduate, but she had some fun with fashion and photography while searching, searching for her true passion. ''Sofia was concerned that she had interest in so many creative activities,'' says Francis Ford Coppola, who still reels from the assault his daughter endured after he cast her in his movie. ''She'd ask me if she ought to specialize. I remember always telling her that she didn't have to, that she should pursue everything and anything that interested her, that eventually they'd come together in something on their own.''
