Sofia Coppola Cast Colin Farrell Because Of His 'Bad Boy Thing'

Sofia Coppola is ready for her close-up on the new cover of WSJ. Magazine.

Here’s what The Beguiled director, and some of the stars she’s worked with, had to share:

Kirsten Dunst on Sofia’s movies being a tight-knit operation: “People are bringing their kids, [Sofia’s] own kids are saying, ‘Action!’ She sticks with what she wants, and she doesn’t waver. That’s really what matters from a director. When you see a Sofia movie, you know it’s a Sofia movie.”

Nicole Kidman on Sofia: “She’s so dignified and soft-spoken [but] she still gets everything done.”

Sofia on casting Colin Farrell: “He’s so charming and masculine. And he has a bad boy kind of thing.”
