On Friday, actress Reese Witherspoon posted a photo of the family gathered for Thanksgiving, reminding everyone that she has some very strong genetics. The photo features husband Jim Toth, their nine-year-old son Tennessee, and her kids with ex Ryan Phillippe, 22-year-old Ava and 18-year-old Deacon.
'Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours,' she captioned the image.
As usual, the resemblance between Witherspoon and her kids is striking, especially with Ava, who people have long been describing as her 'mini-me.'
In this birthday celebration post, Ava looks just like her mom.
She captioned it, 'Happy Birthday to my sweet little girl…excuse me… I mean my adult daughter!!! Words can’t describe how proud I am of you. You have grown into an extraordinary person who cares so much about the world around her. I am so lucky to have you light up my life. I love you, Ava!!'
The comparisons don't bother Witherspoon at all—why would they? They're both gorgeous. But she told InStyle that there's an added benefit for her.
'I love being mistaken for her because it makes me feel so young,' she said.
She explained Ava doesn't mind either, adding, 'She really rolls with it. I'm sure it's not easy looking exactly like your mother.'
Well, it might be if your mother looks like Reese Witherspoon. It's also not like Ava is the only famously similar looking child of a celebrity. They even have someone on speed-dial to chat with about the issue.
'We talk to Zoë Kravitz a lot,' Witherspoon claimed. 'Because she and her mother [Lisa Bonet] look exactly alike, so whenever Ava is frustrated, I go, "Call Zoë, text Zoë, she knows what to talk about." I mean, that's another mother-daughter combo that's like identical twins.'
