Elle Fanning: 'Francis Ford Coppola is Like My Grandfather'!

Elle Fanning goes out for a night on the town on Saturday (October 13) in the Mayfair neighborhood of London, England.

The 14-year-old actress recently talked to Elle about her relationship with Francis Ford Coppola, who she worked with on Twixt, and his daughter Sofia, who she worked with on Somewhere.

“I was on the set of Somewhere in Las Vegas when Sofia said, ‘My dad’s going to come to the set today!’ I was like, ‘Oh my God, Francis Ford Coppola’s coming to the set’. I was very nervous to meet him,” Elle said.

“Now I feel like he’s a grandpa to me. During Twixt, I stayed in Napa Valley with him. We made pasta, and he showed me how to prepare tomato sauce,” she added.

    She is very pretty, but that double chin… She doesn’t look good in that pic. Coppola and Thora? Really? Disgusting! Twixt is a horrible movie.
