Sofia: (on the birth of her daughter) I'm so excited to have a girl. It's so fun to have little girl stuff.
Sofia: I guess that most kids from known families, there's a cliche that they don't work as hard. But I'm definitely a hard worker, and I don't think about proving myself. When you're working with people, they can tell whether or not you know what you're talking about.
Sofia: Acting isn't for me. I don't like being told what to do. I'm more interested in set design, more visually driven.
Sofia: I definitely have had friendships and moments with people from different backgrounds and in different stages of their lives.
Sofia: I never studied directing and I never really thought about doing it, and then I just found myself in that situation and tried it. I like to be observing everything else, and I get self-conscious in front of the camera.
Sofia: For everyone, there are those moments when you have great days with someone you wouldn't expect to. Then you have to go back to your real lives, but it makes an impression on you.
Sofia: A lot of young filmmakers bring their movies to my dad because he always gives lots of good editing ideas and notes. He'd be a good film professor.
