    Sofia Coppola has a thriving career in showbiz now, but it nearly came to a premature end in 1990 when her father cast her as Mary Corleone in his third - and final - chapter of The Godfather trilogy. The 19-year-old Coppola was thoroughly unequipped for the demanding role and critics tore her to shreds for her uneven performance and glaring Valley Girl accent. Time magazine's Richard Corliss was hardly alone when he observed, ''(Her) gosling gracelessness comes close to wrecking the movie.'' The bad press derailed her nascent acting career and forced her behind the lens, where's she's since proven to be a first rate talent with films like The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation.
